  • Notes 
    • John, or Jan as he was known by the inhabitants of New Amsterdam, was christened at the Reformed Dutch Church, New York City. His father had landed in New Amsterdam on 30 May 1635. Family tradition says that Jan's parents were killed by Indians on 9 November 1655.

      Fifteen years after the deaths of John's parents, the records show that the daughters had married and the sons had moved to Moopit Kills where the English living there anglicized their Dutch given names: Jan to John, Aert to Arthur, and Willem to William. The change from Alburtis was gradual, with members of the same family using Albertus, Alburtis, and Burtis. About the 4th generation, "Burtis" was generally used except for one branch that still uses Alburtis, and one family, Albertis. "Burtis" is an American name and all with the name Burtis or Alburtis are descended from Pietro. Many years ago, the city of Venice, Italy, donated a bronze plaque to New York City honoring Pietro, the "First Italian-American" and every year the Italian-American Historical Society has a celebration in his honor.
