    Notes 
    • Petrus Elmendorf served as town trustee as magistrate, supervisor, sheriff and surrogate for several terms. His widow, Molly, was left with considerable property, and during the Revolution was a woman of affairs and influence. While the tea tax troubles were brewing in 1770 she and her son John were given charge of the existing supply. Some of the women of Kingston became desperate for some and took forcible possession of Molly Elmendorf's house or store, seizing what they wished and leaving payment.
      Petrus Edmundus and Molly Elmendorf's children numbered 10, of whom six grew to maturity. Their daughters married into the Bleecker family of Albany, the Ray family of New York and Bruyns of Kingston. One daughter of the Bleeckers married Gov. Horatio Seymour, and another Charles Edward Dudley, state senator and mayor of Albany. Mrs. Dudley gave $105,000 to found Dudley Observatory at Albany. The Bruyns became connected with the family of Judge Hasbrouck, member of congress and president of Rutgers College. Petrus Edmundus Elmendorf, Jr. married a Van Rensselaer of Albany.
