Biographical Sketch of John Alburtis

John Alburtis, son of Arthur and Elizabeth (Way) Alberto. was born in 1688-89. He was appointed commissioner of highways in 1701, and in 1719 was oppressed by the English justices, Hunt and Cornell, as is proven by the affidavits of his friends and neighbors. He lived to be a very old man, and because of his great age his family remained upon Long Island during the occupancy of the British instead of taking shelter elsewhere. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Christian Snediker, of Jamaica, Long Island. The baptisms of their ten children are recorded in the Reformed Dutch church of Jamaica. The sons were all remarkable for their size and strength.
