      While *surfing*, I came upon a new site (at least for me). Punched in
      Stuyvesant and pulled up several hits. The most interesting seemed to be the
      following. Perhaps if someone one the list is able to visit the New York
      Historical Library, they could research the documents referenced. It seems
      like would be a gold mine of information. I also did a search on the surname
      Backer, but came up zero.
