His ancestor Willem Adriaense "Lastname" came to Brooklyn NY with other Dutchmen in the early 1600's from Holland. There is some family speculation that he may have been of English or French Hueguenot descent, but his family had definitely been in Holland long enough to adopt the Dutch name spellings and usage. So perhaps my son and your neighbor are related eleven or so generations back.
