Some Ostranders Recorded in New York State
by Cliff Lamere 18 Aug 2004, revised 21 Aug 2004
I omitted nothing that was in the transcription, but the information may have been reorganized to fit on a single line. All retyped records below have been proofread for accuracy. Comments in [ ] are my own.
Baptism records - these are arranged by date of birth. When that is lacking, the baptism date is used. It was not possible to arrange the baptisms by the name of the Ostrander, because some had as many as three Ostranders named. To be consistent, I listed the marriages chronologically also.
The records below are for the following counties in New York: Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer, Greene and Jefferson.
these records extend beyond the right edge of the screen. Every record
ends with a reference to a source such as RPTB:54 (book abbreviation and page
number) or a comment. Scroll right to see the full record (you can

UNCERTAINTY OF DATES AND PLACES IN CHURCH RECORDS
* When an asterisk appears at the end of a date shown below, it means that in the church register there was no date attached to the baptism or marriage. The record is one or more lines below a record which is dated. Researchers commonly assume that the undated event took place on the same day as the record above it that has a date. That is a dangerous assumption, because it is not always true. Records listed below with a * have dates which I consider to be uncertain. For example, the Bethlehem Reformed records on occasion list children who are known to have been born after the previous recorded baptism date. This means that the pastor forgot to record the date of the new baptism(s). I don't know if the same happened with some marriages.
I know of a Gardenier marriage that was recorded by a Reformed Church pastor in registers of both churches he serviced, one with a date and one without. Genealogists have assumed that the one without a date occurred on the same day as two other marriages, because it was the second undated marriage below a dated marriage. However, the church register in the other church proves that the marriage actually occurred over two months later, and in the following year.
To help you decide how reliable the dates below might be, I have listed the number of records which seem to be associated with a date, and what position the particular record has relative to the date. 2/3 would mean the second baptism or marriage in a series of three.
Why might there be no date attached to some records? The possibilities include the following.
The minister or clerk may have recorded the date for only the first marriage or baptism that occurred on that day. The date was meant to apply to all following baptisms/marriages until a new date was written. However, the minister or clerk might have forgotten to record the date for the next event. Another reason could be that a minister might perform a marriage or baptism outside the church and then forgot to record the event until much later, by which time the date was no longer known to him.
Sometimes, a minister serviced more than one church. He might have had contracts with two churches with small congregations, neither of which alone could afford to pay a living wage for a pastor. The one which provided him with living quarters is the one he would consider to be his home church. Or, he might have serviced primarily one church while appearing periodically at a church which temporarily had no pastor.
In either case, he might 1) record all baptisms and marriages in the registers of the church where the event took place, 2) record all events in his home registers, 3) record all events in both registers (as happened with the Gardenier marriage mentioned above), 4) be inconsistent about where the events were recorded. One factor to consider is that the registers at the 'away' church may not have been available to him on the day of his visit, while at other times they were. An important factor is that the pastor may have wanted a single record of all baptisms and marriages he performed. That could mean keeping a separate, personal record, or it might just mean that he would record everything at his home church. This pastor might also record the events at the 'away' church as well.
In New Netherland and early New York, churches were often a long distance from a farmer's land. Travelling pastors/dominies often performed marriages and baptisms at places which had no church, and might not even have had a locality name. These events were recorded in the register at the pastor's church a long distance away. Genealogists usually assume the baptism or marriage occurred in the church and they state that their ancestor lived in the community in which the church was built. Even today, people travel to have their child baptized near the home of a relative who will be its godparent. It is never safe to assume that the child lived in the same community as the church. Churches were built in large communities, but a great number of people, especially farmers, lived outside the community.

"... the first Dutch family known to have settled in the immediate vicinity of present Nassau village was that of Aaron Ostrander, who seems to have arrived in 1780 or 1781. He had been married in February, 1772, to Elizabeth Wilson, living "near Kinderhook." His name does not appear in the 1779 tax list for the Nassau area, but in 1784 he finally received the unusually high sum of £3.10.7 for his services in Captain Woodworth's company. Ostrander's farm extended east from the present village limits, on the south side of Route 20, almost as far as the small pond and swamp below Meschodack Hill. His farm also included all of the high, bald hill just southeast of the present village limits, where there are hayfields today." EHNV:9

"OSTRANDER: Arent Ostrander was born in Dutchess Co., N.Y. about 1750, son of Cornelius and Janetje Hermance Ostrander, of Rhinebeck Flats, and came early to the Nassau area where he subsequently owned a great deal of land mainly just south of the village. It seems likely that he came from Kinderhook and that he is the Arent Ostrander who married Elizabeth Wilson, 29 February 1772, in Kinderhook. His sister, Geertje Ostrander, baptised in 1752, married Andries Wilson, brother to Elizabeth. Arent and Elizabeth Ostrander had two daughters, but little else is known of him." EHNV:24
