I have the idea that my ancestors Abraham Van Lent Rycken and Griete Hermansen were both born on the Hudson River in 1615 and 1616 respectively. I have seen rumors on the internet that their baptisms were found in fort records. Now this would predate what modern historians have concluded was the first fort. But I am thinking this could have been Fort Nassau?, or which fort were they born in? Most historians believe that Fort Amsterdam was constructed much later than this. Surely there must have been some trading post set up at this time period that predated the West India Company.
