Addendum March 16, 2008: It has come to my attention that the above list is not complete. There appear to be several of Capt Ten Eyck's Company missing including, but not limited to, Christopher Oppy / Oppey. Please see the TWO attached militia rolls to see if your ancestor is listed.
Militia Roll #1 | Militia Roll #2
My thanks to Chris Oppy, a descendant for bringing the "missing" to my attention.
