Another Van Tassel Connection

Cornelis Jansen Van Tassel (or Van Texel), who married Catoneras, daughter of Wyandanch sachem of the Montauks of Long Island. They had one known child, Jan Cornelissen Van Tassel, who relocated to the Tarrytown area with his wife, Annetje Alberts, and had several children who, if I have the story straight, are the heads of the Van Tassel lines in this country.
Incidentally, I hadn't known about the Doxsee-Van Tassel connection. If my Elizabeth Doxsee turns out to be from this line, then my parents were cousins! (My dad has the Doxsee line, and my mother has the Van Tassel).
