The Van Slyck lineage is as follows:

Hillitie, the eldest daughter of Cornelis Antonisen Van Slyck, married Peter Danielse Van Olinda of Niskayuna. She was for many years employed as provincial interpreter with the Indians by the government at $50 per annum. The Mohawk sachems in 1667, gave her the great island in the Mohawk River at Niskayuna. She and her husband sold the island in 1669 to Captain Johannes Clute. The Sachems also gave to her land at the Willow Flat, below Port Jackson; and at the boght on the Mohawk in Watervliet. She died February 10th, 1707, leaving three sons, Daniel, Jacob and Matthew. The last died unmarried.

Daniel, the oldest son, June 11th, 1696, married Lysbeth Krigier, a granddaughter of the old burgomaster Martinus Krigier, and left surviving him three sons, Peter, John and Martin.
