The second registration was for men who had turned 21 since June 5, 1917, so it added men born between June 5, 1896 and June 5, 1897. Two months later, a supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918 for men who had become 21 years of age since June 5, 1918, adding the names of men who were born between June 5, 1897 and August 24, 1897. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted it's third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888.

Margaret Van Dyke1

F, b. circa 1852, d. 13 January 1875
Relationships
Great-grandaunt of Evelyn Van Dyke
Great-grandaunt of Robert Edward Van Dyke
Great-grandaunt of John William Van Dyke
Great-grandaunt of Walter Carl Van Dyke
Margaret Van Dyke, daughter of Albert Emmans and Ruth (Hendrickson) Van Dyke
     As the "compiler" believes, the person in the below article, "A Flatlands Farmer and His Child". My reasoning includes the review of the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Federal Census showing Ruth. Note the value of Margaret's real estate as listed in the 1870 census. The sum of $45,000.00 is quite high for this period on time

A Flatlands Farmer and His Child Fortune Disposed of by a Death. Captain Albert Emmons was a thrifty farmer at Flatlands, Kings County, twenty years ago, and many of the residents there knew him intimately. He was somewhat eccentric, and had a great antipathy to matrimony. He was quite wealthy and had an estate of one hundred sixty acres of land. In his house lived a woman named Mrs. Van Dyck, whom he always represented to be his housekeeper. About the year 1852, Mrs. Van Dyck gave birth to a female child. Emmons faced the community manfully and acknowledged the paternity. He was even fond of the little child, and provided for it handsomely. It is not known that he ever married Mrs. VanDyck, and although she survived him, never made pretension that they had ever bound in wedlock. She cared for him with all the tenderness of a true wife and there are those living who respect her for it. Emmons left a will bequeathing all his property to the child, and provided that if she died with a legal issue it should descend to her children. Should she die without issue, the property was to be divided between his nephews and nieces. The child grew up to be a fine looking lady and no stigma was ever associated with her name. She had many suitors, and last October betrothed to the son of a wealthy farmer of New Lots. It was said that they were soon to be married. In January she was taken sick and the physicians pronounced her disease scarlet fever. The last week in January she died. The farm is located in the village of Flatlands. The 160 acres are valued at $1,500 per acre. The nieces and nephews are ten in number and all reside at Jamaica. They are the Naders, Emmons and Snedecors, all well to do people and farmers. The heirs held one meeting, but no definite action was taken. They estimate that the share of each will be $22,000. Article courtesy of “The Brooklyn Eagle”. http://eagle.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/
A search of the 1850 United States Federal Census, Flatlands, New York, Sheet 24, line 1 was accomplished to further identify Mr. Albert Emmens. Accordingly, the census sheets for Ruth (sheet 23) and Albert Emmens (sheet 24), indicate they were either next door neighbors or just across the street. circa 1852 at Flatlands, Kings, New York.2
     Margaret Van Dyke, daughter of Albert Emmons and Ruth Hendrickson, was born circa 1852 at New York.1

     Margaret was listed in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle under the title, ""Our Men of Means". The Records of All Brooklyn Citizens Who Figure in the Census as Worth Over $25000." Margaret was listed as attending school with a worth of $46,000.00. This further shows of money left to her from her father as described in the Brooklyn Eagle article on 27 July 1871 at Brooklyn, Kings, New York.3

     Margaret Van Dyke died on 13 January 1875.4

     Margaret Van Dyke was buried at Flatlands Dutch Reformed Church Cemetery, Brooklyn, Kings, New York.5

     Margaret was discussed in court since she died intestate and without issue. The following is from the reference supplement.

"MILLER, J. This is an action in ejectment. The appeal is from a judgment dismissing the complaint, entered on the decision of the Special Term after a trial. It involves the construction of the following clause of the will of Albert Emmans, who died December 4, 1858, viz.: v "Fifth. I give, devise and bequeath all the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal of what nature, kind or description soever the same may be and wheresoever the same may be situated unto Margaret Van Dyke, who now resides with me and who Is my daughter by Ruth Van Dyke. To have and to hold the same to her and to her heirs, executors, administrators and assigns forever. But in case my said daughter Margaret should die without lawful issue her surviving, then, and in that case, I give, devise and bequeath all said rest, residue and remainder of my estate herein-above given to said Margaret unto my nephews Stephen Williamson, John Emmans, Nicholas Emmans and David Bmmans, my niece Margaret, wife of John I. Snedeker, my niece Sarah Fleming, wife of Joseph Fleming, and to such children of my sister Maria Napier us may be living at the time of the decease of my said daughter Margaret to be equally divided between them share and share alike, to have and to hold the same to them severally and respectively and to their several and respective heirs, executors, administrators and assigns forever." The plaintiffs claim under said Margaret Van Dyke; the defendants, under Harry Fleming, the son of said Sarah Fleming. Margaret Van Dyke died January 13, 1875, intestate and without issue. The premises in question are salt meadow lands, and were a part of and contiguous to farm lands owned and occupied in his lifetime by said Albert Emmans. In 1876 the entire premises were partitioned among the nephews and nieces of said Albert Emmans living at the time of the decease of the said Margaret Van Dyke; each tenant in common being allotted a portion of the upland and a portion of the salt meadow. The grass has been cut on said meadow each year since 1875, and rent therefor paid to the Fleming family. Said Margaret Van Dyke was the illegitimate daughter of said Albert Emmans. She was survived by her mother, Ruth Van Dyke, and the plaintiffs are the children of one of the mother's heirs, and as such claim to own one twenty- eighth part of the premises in question. The appellants contend that upon the death of Albert Emmans an absolute unconditional fee vested in Margaret Van Dyke by virtue of the provisions of his will quoted supra. They rely upon two well-settled rules of construction, viz.: "(a) That an estate given In one part of the will In clear and decisive terms will not be taken away or cut down by any subsequent words not equally clear and decisive. "(b) That where there is a bequest or devise to a person absolutely, and in the event of his death to another person, the contingency refers to a death during the life of the testator." Rules of construction are intended to aid in determining the intention of the testator, not to defeat such intention when clearly manifested. Effect should be given, if possible, to all the language used, the qualifying words as well as the words of devise. Qualifying words do not create repugnance, but are to be harmonized with the words which they qualify, and if, when thus harmonized, the intention is manifest, there should be no difficulty in giving it effect. The qualifying words of the clause under consideration, if they are such, are as clear and decisive as the words of devise; hence the first rule quoted supra does not apply, and the question remains whether, under the second rule quoted supra, those words are words of limitation or of substitutionary devise. It may be conceded that the contingency referred to (i. e., the death of Margaret), though coupled with another contingency (i. e., death "without lawful issue her surviving"), if there were nothing else in the will to disclose the intention of the testator, would refer to a death in the lifetime of the testator, because so the cases uniformly hold. But I think that the testator used other language clearly indicating that the contingency he had in mind was the death of Margaret at any time, for he said: "Then, and In that case, I give, devise and bequeath all said rest, residue and remainder of my estate hereinabove given to said Margaret unto * * » and to such children of my sister Maria Napier as may be living at the time of the decease of my said daughter Margaret" Thus, I think, he clearly evidenced an intention to provide, not for substitutionary devises, but for conditional limitations to take effect upon the death of Margaret without issue her surviving. The devisees named are to take, not upon the death of the testator, but upon the death of Margaret. I think, when the entire clause is read, the testator's intention is not in doubt, and that he intended Margaret should have a fee, vesting upon his death, subject to being divested upon her death without lawful issue her surviving. While no case precisely like this has been called to our attention, exceptions to the general rule have frequently been iterated; i. e., cases where a point of time is mentioned other than the death of the testator, where a life estate intervenes, or where the context of the will clearly evidences the intent of the testator. The exceptions are not limited to the single case, stated by the appellants, where a life estate intervenes. Van- derzee v. Slingerland et al., 103 N. Y. 47, 8 N. E. 247, 57 Am. Rep. 701; Mead v. Maben et al., 131 N. Y. 255, 30 N. E. 98; Matter of Denton, 137 N. Y. 428, 33 N. E. 482; Matter of Baer, 147 N. Y. 348, 41 N. E. 702. As the plaintiffs cannot maintain their action without proving title, it is unnecessary to consider the other points urged by them. The judgment should be affirmed. Judgment affirmed, with costs. All concur.4

Census

     Margaret Van Dyke appeared on the 1855 New York Census of Flatlands, Kings, New York, enumerated June 1855,with her mother; The census indicated Ruth was a widow.6

     Margaret Van Dyke appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Flatlands, Kings, New York, in the household of his mother Ruth. If you have read the newspaper article written in 1852 and, look at the values of Margaret's estate and personal property, I (compiler) think you will see a correlation.8

     William Henry Denton, son of Charles E. Denton and Meta Lankenau, was born on 8 May 1894 at Canarsie, Kings, New York.3,4

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31. As a result, this first registration included men born between June 5, 1886 and June 5, 1896. As World War I continued to escalate, the United States instituted a second draft registration. The second registration was for men who had turned 21 since June 5, 1917, so it added men born between June 5, 1896 and June 5, 1897. Two months later, a supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918 for men who had become 21 years of age since June 5, 1918, adding the names of men who were born between June 5, 1897 and August 24, 1897. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted it's third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888. William filled out a draft card for World War I on 5 June 1917 (at age 23), while living at Canarsie, Kings, New York, He was described as tall, medium build, blue eyes, and brown hair. At the time he was working as a carpenter.. He was described as height..5
