     Jacob Vanderbilt Will of Jacob Vanderbilt was written 10 May 1759 and proved 9 Jan 1761. His wife, Neeltie Denyse, survived him by ten years. He mentions his children in order of birth, Dennis (Denys), Hellitye, Jacobus, Helena, (Magdelena), John (Johannes), Cornelius, Anne (Anathea), Phebe (Femmete), and Neeltie. He also mentions his five grandchildren form his deceased son Adrian. He left an estate of some 230 acres, a good barn and a well-built house, plus equipment, animals and slaves necessary for farming, but Neeltje had the entire estate auctioned off and gave each child an equal share of the proceeds.

He does not mention a son William. So if he had a son William, this son had to die early. The William who married Maria (Lea) Van Duyn and had five children, died in 1772 and his father Jacob was executor of his estate. That William appears to be the son of Jacob Vanderbilt and Neeltje Van Horn and the grandson of Jan Vanderbilt and Ida Suydam.
He was born on 25 January 1691/92 at New Bedford, NY. He was the son of Aris Janse Vanderbilt and Hillitje Remsen. Jacob Vanderbilt married Neiltje Denyse, daughter of Denys Teunisen and Helena Cortelyou, circa 1715. Jacob Vanderbilt died on 14 December 1760 at Staten Island, NY, at age 68.
