Bevier-Elting Family Association was formed to assist the Huguenot Historical
Society in maintaining the Bevier-Elting House, and to continue the genealogical
research of both families.
Bevier may have joined the group of twelve Patentees in 1677. He and his wife
and family settled in New Paltz in 1678. The Bevier homestead was first rented,
and later sold, to the Elting(e) family.
Eltinge, the grandson of Jan and Jacomyntje Eltinge, purchased the house in 1760. His descendants lived in the house until
donating it to the
Huguenot Historical Society in 1963.
