[There has been confusion assigning spouses and offspring between second cousins Johannes Sloat (1699, Hackensack-1863), son of Jacobus (1669-1725), and Johannes Sloat (1702, NYC-?), son of Jacobus' brother, Jan Pietersen (1665-1704). This may be the result of complex marital ties between the Sloat, Demerest, and Elswart families. The lineage presented here is in accord with public records and logical geographical locations. EWA]

     Never robust in health; and with a family where sickness was seldom absent; she still was cheerful, content and in perplexing times was wont to quote.

"Be patient, keep thy life work well in hand

Be trustful, where thou can'st not understand.

Thy lot what'er it be, is wisely planned

God holds the key.

Thou well can trust him and bide patiently."
