The following is a quote from the book A SEARCH FOR POLLY compiled by Harry L.Marsalis in 1971:
"..This distinction (of being the fist Marselis in America) belongs to one Hendrick Marselis,who came over as one of Melyns Colonists in the "New Netherlands Fortunes"in 1650. Hendrick first lived on Staten Island, but under Indian attack in 1655 fled and made a permanent settlement at Fort Orange (Albany), New York.
In 1673, Hendrick Marselis lived "behind Kinderhook" with his son-in-law Mattys Coenreads (Ten Eyck). Hendrick was married to Tryn (Tryntje, Catherine) Vanden Berg. They had only two children, both daughters. One married Mattys Coenraeds, the other Mattys Hooghteeling.
