Jacobus Jillise Van Vorst (1703-1797?) was baptized 12 December 1703 in Schenectady's Dutch Reformed Church, the third child and third son of Jillis Jacobse Van Vorst and Elizabeth Janse Van Eps.  He married (1) Anna Beck (1704-1749), who was baptized 7 October 1704 in Schenectady, and died before 20 May 1749 in Schenectady, when Jacobus married (2) Sarah Fonda (1713-????).  

Jacobus and Anna (Beck) Van Vorst are my 6th great-grandparents, through their daughter Anna Van Vorst (1732-1789) who married (2) John Kemp (1723-1795) in about 1758.
