      The farm that Dirk Van der Heyden conveyed to his sons
      ...included the site of nearly the entire business section
      of Troy and the finest property within a radius of miles.
      This area was known as "Vanderheyden" for many yrs.
      It later became Troy, NY. Jacob V.D.H. would not sell his
      land until 1787. The settlement of Troy was slowed down
      because of this.
