CHILDREN of Cornelis VIELE and Suster BOUTS:
- [S1]. Arnout VIELE. He lived in Albany, New York. For many years he was the provincial interpreter for the Mowhawk Indians, and attended their yearly gathering at Albany. He often visited them in the western wilderness. On account of their high esteem for him, and in recognition of his valuable services, in 1683 they gave him a parcel of land, called "Wachkeerhoha", located above Schenectady on the north side of the river. In 1687 he was taken prisoner by the French as he was on his way to Ottawa to trade. Espousing the cause of Leisler in opposition to Col. Ingoldsby, he was turned out of his office of interpretor, after which he retired to Long Island; but being held "in great esteem by the Indians" and being "a good and faithful interpreter" he was soon recalled to the office of Indian Interpreter. He married Geeritje GERITSE, of Amsterdam, in 1677.
