Biography of Jean Guenon
Barton, Tioga County, NY Biographies





JEAN GUENON, one of the exiled Hugeunots who took refuge in Holland, set sail from Amsterdam, April 2, 1657, in the ship "Draetvat," and came directly to New Amsterdam (New York). The next year he settled at Flushing, L. I., where he acquired land, and died in 1714. His wife was Greta Sneden, of Harlem, whom he married August 30, 1660. They left two sons, John, born in 1669, and Jeremiah, born in 1671. From these it is believed, have descended all the American families of Genung. Benjamin Genung, a soldier of the revolution, settled in New Jersey, and at an early day came to Dryden, then a part of Tioga. He had six children; Barnabas, Aaron, Rachel, Phio, Peron, and Timothy. Barnabas married Susan Johnson, by whom he had twelve children who arrived at maturity, Lydia, Nathaniel, Abram, Harrisbn, Ann, Rebecca, Sally, Enos, George, Merilda, and Barnabas.
