Zabriskie – The Musical

“I say hello to Nancy and the artists. I think about the Chicano Artist Sanctuaries I am thinking of founding.”

I wrote the above two days ago. I am seeing into the future. Trump’s good squad own guns and see themselves as cowboys. He is supplying them with targets. Hippies were a favorite target of the Republican-right. We were ‘The Savage Indians’.  We were hunted!

The pardon of Sheriff Joe checked so many boxes for what we know about how Trump views the world and operates that, in retrospect, it was utterly predictable.

This morning I awoke carrying a heavy load. I dreamed I was in a warehouse in New York choosing old props from a play that had failed, or, was never fully produced. Something went wrong. Now, I was the savior of this play. I heard someone say;

“This is an extremely difficult project. This guy gets his big break, and he’s going for this?”

I awoke with FAILURE staring me in the face. What is the play? I lie in bed half asleep and let my intuition look for the answer. Maybe it’s a musical? I thought about my friends in New York and ‘My Big Beautiful Blue Bicycle’ and my unfinished novel ‘The Gideon Computer’. I say hello to Nancy and the artists. I think about the Chicano Artist Sanctuaries I am thinking of founding. Then, I am looking at my next post I had in mind, and – BINGO!

In lest than an hour I am watching Darian Halsprin walking into a hole in the rocks where there is a waterfall in a grotto. it leads to a house designed by the famous architect – as a prop, that is going to be blown-up!

This movie was made in 1970, the year Rena and I went camping for fifty days in my 1950 Dodge. When Christine saw the painting I did of my muse in 1971, she took up art. Life imitates art. Life is a movie. Consider the real estate deal going on in the house.

Angela Davis is in this movie. My daughter’s mother had a son by a Black Panther, who knew Angela. It’s all here. It wrote itself, as if there is a God, and, Art is God.

At the end of director Michelangelo Antonioni’s anti-capitalist, anti-life turkey of a film ‘Zabriskie Point,’ this house — designed by architect Paolo Soleri and (like several scenes in Antonioni’s film) based  on the house in Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘North by Northwest,’ which was itself inspired by  Frank Lloyd Wright’s desert houses — this house is ‘lovingly’ exploded in montage as the ‘climax’ of the film; destroyed in balletic slow motion with “a final destructive glee.”

As a director, Antonioni was for sure an accomplished artist.  His films were honest demonstrations — of essentially anti-life themes.  Antonioni’s original ending to this film, which was the perfect culmination of his film’s theme, was a shot of an airplane sky-writing the phrase “Fuck You, America,” which was cut by MGM president Louis F. Polk.

Never doubt that’s what he meant this replacement scene to say — “a series of slow-motion captures of capitalistic debris flying apart against a smoky blue background.”  Never doubt that he meant it.

That’s why the house needed to be so good.  Understand that, and you understand much of modern art.  Think about it.

And from the siting of the house you can begin to appreciate what it means to “integrate architecture with your site.”

Christian Brevoort Zabriskie (October 16, 1864 – February 8, 1936) was an American businessman and former vice president of Pacific Coast Borax Company. Zabriskie Point on the northeasternmost flank of the Black Mountains east of Death Valley, located in Death Valley National Park is named after him.

About Elias Brevoort

Seems to have started as a Loyalist <see list. Not to be confused with another Elias Brevoort now on the DAR list and served under Major Goetchius (NJ) ref: DAR# A104082 . His younger brother Henry remained “loyal” in the Out Ward of New York and preserved the family farm just north of Washington Square.

One Elias Brevoort was granted land in Digby, NS as a Loyalist refugee. Evidently, he returned to the US just as many other refugees did.

Descendants of Claude Le Maitre

Generation No. 1

1. CLAUDE LE1 MAITRE was born Abt. 1610 in Richebourg, Province of
Artois, France, and died 1683 in Flatbush, Kings County, New Amsterdam.
He married (1) JEAN DE LANNOY in prob. Artois, France. She died Bef.
1650. He married (2) HESTER DUBOIS1,2 April 24, 1652 in
Loverdwarsstraet, Amsterdam, Holland, daughter of PIERRE DUBOIS and
CATHARINE CLARISWELL. She was born October 01, 1625 in Canterbury,
County of Kent, England, and died Abt. 1710 in New York.

Notes for CLAUDE LE MAITRE:
> From a researcher Thomas Hulse (?) of Williamston, MA Feb. 1995 : The
Delamaters were once the de la Maistres, the Lords of Garlaye, whose
chateau
lay in the parish of Derval, in the Diocese of Nantes. A branch ended up
in
Picardy (the next province over from Artois) where one Claude de la
Maistre,
Sieur de Hedicourt, fought nobly in the Protestant cause in 1588 and
1597. He
was very probably, through a younger son, our Claude Delamter’s
grandfather.

That unknown younger son lived in Richebourg, in Artois, and there
Claude was
born. He was also raised there as well as fleeing from that place
probably to
England first. By 1652, he was living in Loyerswarsstraet (the Tanner’s
cross
street) in Amsterdam and married Hester du Bois whose family had
followed a
similiar trail. By 1661, they were in Nieuw Amsterdam, first moving to
Flat
Bush and then to Harlem. Of his children, eldest son, Jan, married Ruth
Waldron founding the main branch of the Harlem Delamaters.

> From Carl Krogh citing resources of NEH&G Volume 14; NYGB&R Vol. 44;
Riker’s
History of Haarlem and UCGS Chart by Florence Prehn :
Sometimes called Isaac Delamater or Claude Le Maitre, he was a Huguenot
from
Richeborg, Artois, born there in 1620. In 1652, he came to Flatbush,
Long
Island. In 1662 he moved to Haarlem. Claude was a carpentar.

Notes for HESTER DUBOIS:
The du Bois name is from Neustria – the western part of the Frankish
Merovingian kingdom, comprising what is now northern France – formed AD
561. The name is traced to the time of Rollo : [AD 860 -931] a Norse
Chieftan and the first Duke of Normandy.
Merovingian : the first dynasty of Frankish kings that ruled over Gaul
from AD 500 to 751. [FRANK : member of a Germanic tribe of the Rhine
region; especially one of the Salian Franks who conquered Gaul (modern
France/Belgium) in 500 AD].

Jean Du Bois, her uncle; Jean Desmuille, widow of Pierre duBois, the
grandmother, and Esther Pierquin were her baptismal sponsors. She was
baptised in Strangers Chapel in Canterbury. Canterbury is located in the
County of Kent, northwest of Calais,
France and laying southeast of London.

On April 15, 1670, she and her husband made out their joint will. It
reads :

” In the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ 1670, the 15th of
April
appeared before me, Jan La Montagne, Junior admitted Secretary of this
Town by
the Honorable Mayor’s Court residing within the jurisdiction of New
Harlaem.
Glaude Le Maistre and Hester Du Bois, husband and wife of sound memory
and
understanding as externally appears : and of mind to make a disposition
of
their temporal estate. First, on resting in the Lord, they commit their
bodies
to decent burial and 50 guilders in seawant (wampum, the most commonly
used
currency at the time) to the poor in this place. Secondly, they annul
all
testaments and codicils that before this were made and declare this
mutual
testament to their final will. One of them having deceased, the survivor
is to
continue in full possession till again.”

  • Glaude Le Maistre, or Delamater, as usually written by his descendants, had sprung from an ancient house of Brittany, the Lords of Garlaye, whose chateau and estates lay in the parish of Derval, in the diocese of Nantes. It was eminent in the civil and military service, the church, and the law. Its members had held commands in Picardy, where one of its now scattered branches, in which the name Claude first appears, became allied

  • early in the sixteenth century to the lords of Caumartin. Claude Le Maistre, Sieur De Hedicourt, becoming a Protestant, was, with others, imprisoned and fined at Amiens in 1588, at the instance of the League. He was a man of talent and spirit, and showed great valor in opposing the entrance of the Spaniards into that city in 1597, when soldiers in the garb of peasants, selling apples and nuts, had gained admission. Our Glaude Le Maistre was no doubt of this family, members of which had removed to Artois, where he was born, as before said, in the town of Richebourg. After escaping the country he comes to notice at Amsterdam, in 1652, an exile and a widower, living in the Tanners’ cross-street, having lost his wife, Jeanne De Lannoy. On April 24th of that year he married Hester, daughter of Pierre Du Bois, of Amsterdam, though late of Canterbury, England, where Hester was born. Some of the Le Maistres had also taken refuge at Canterbury, and circumstances make it nearly certain that Glaude was among them, and with the Du Boises had left England because of the civil wars then raging, or the threatened rupture with Holland, and, perhaps, in his case, to take ship for New Netherland, as he soon did, appearing with Tourneur first at Flatbush, and afterward at Harlem.

  • Glaude le Maistre, born 1620, as his autograph is, ancestor of the entire Delamater family in this country, having died before the date of the Dongan patent, his widow, Hester, and sons Jan and Isaac, took his place among the patentees. An exile from his home at Richebourg, in Artois, it was while living in the Loyerdwarsstraet, at Amsterdam, April 24, 1652, that Glaude married Hester Du Bois, who was his second wife (his first wife having been Jeanne De Lannoy) , and, as we have seen, also of a French refugee family. Glaude spent some of his first years in America at Flatbush, working as a carpenter, and there four of his six children were born. With Meyndert Coerten, Walraven Luten, Pierre Billiou and others (Mrs. Billiou, a Du Bois, was probably related to Mrs. Delamater*), he applied, August 22, 1661,

  • Glaude Delamater, or Le Maistre, as he was then called, married first, Jeanne De Lannoy, and second Hester Du Bois, April 24, 1652, had six children, and died about 1683. On November 6, 1687, Claude’s widow married Jan Tibout, the parish clerk. In view of this event, she and Tibout had entered into an agreement, September 23, preceding, with her sons Jan and Isaac, and son-in-law Bussing (who together took the real estate, having power to do so from the absent heirs, Abraham and Jacobus Delamater, and Moses Le Count), by which she was to “have the free use of the house and erf at the strand,” while she lived, and Jan and Isaac were to pay her twenty-seven schepels of wheat yearly. “Should any land be drawn during Hester du Bois’ lifetime, it shall belong to them both, to wit, Jan Tibout and Hester Du Bois.”

  • CLAUDE LE MAITRE (Delamater)1, the ancestor of all who inherit the name in the United States, was a native of Richebourg, in Artois, France, and had sprung from an old family in Picardy, originally from Brittany. In relation to these ancestors, and a narrative of the motives which induced him to leave his native land, and other particulars, the reader is referred to the introduction to this volume, which will be found quite full and specific on many points. On the 24th of April, 1652, Claude married at Amsterdam, Holland, Hester, a daughter of Pierre Du Bois, of that city ; though late of Canterbury, England, where Hester was born. Du Bois, like Le Maitre and others, had been prompted by the religious intolerance of France in those times to seek that freedom abroad, which was not then secure at home. The spirit of adventure invited them across the sea.
  • Claude and Hester Le Maitre came to America and made their home at Flatbush (Midwout), from 1652 till 1662 ; where four of their children, Jan, Abraham, Isaac and Susanna were born. They then removed to Harlem, where two others, Hester and Jacobus, were born.
  • This became their home the remainder of their days.

       Father of Hester: Claude Le Maistre b: ca 1610 in Richebourg, Artois, France. Mother: Hester Dubois b: 1625 in Canterbury, England.
       Claude Le Maistre died ca 1683 in Harlem, NY. On 23 July 1664, 17 Harlem residents of both sexes had their names transferred to the register of the church at Fort Amsterdam, among those listed were "Claude le Maistre and Hester du Bois his wife." Earlier, in the 1640s, according to Riker, he "fled as a refugee to Amsterdam, probably with his [first] wife, Joanne DeLannoy. She must have died, for he married at Amsterdam on April 24, 1652, Hester DuBois. He migrated to New Netherland later that year and settled at Flatbush, L.I. He worked as a carpenter. In 1661 he applied for land on Staten Island, but removed to Harlem, N.Y. instead. He served four terms as a magistrate at Harlem between 1666 and 1673. He bought two allotments of land from Daniel Tourneur for which he took out a patent June 25, 1668. In 1675 he was chosen a deacon, but his sympathies were with the French church and service, whence arose the controversy with the town regarding the parish clerk's salary, which so disturbed his latter years. If impetuous, Claude was not incapable of generous acts when approached kindly, and his obstinacy in maintaining what he conceived to be his rights can hardly be deemed a defect in his character. He died circa 1683, his years having exceeded three score and ten. Claude DeLamater, or LeMaistre as he was then called, had issue with his second wife Hester as follows: Jan, Abraham, Isaac, Susannah, HESTER and Jacobus.

For years the streams of Huguenot emigration setting out of France and the Low Countries had been bearing to Holland, now a solitary wanderer, now a stricken family, some to abide here for a time, others seeking a passage to the New World, but destined ultimately to find at Harlem a resting-place. Coming by no general or concerted action, but only as a crisis in the affairs of each had indicated the time and the mode, it is not easy to fix the exact date of their flight, though the era has been sufficiently shown. We shall name them, as we have the Dutch colonists, in the order of their departure for New Netherland.

Claude Le Maistre, or Delamater, as usually written by his descendants, had sprung from an ancient house of Brittany, the Lords of Garlaye, whose chateau and estates lay in the parish of Derval, in the diocese of Nantes …. On April 24th of that year [1652] he married Hester, daughter of Pierre Du Bois, of Amsterdam, though late of Canterbury, England, where Hester was born. Some of the Le Maistres had also taken refuge at Canterbury, and circumstances make it nearly certain that Claude was among them, and with the Du Boises had left England because of the civil wars then raging, or the threatened rupture with Holland, and, perhaps, in his case, to take ship for New Netherland, as he soon did, appearing with Tourneur first at Flatbush, and afterward at Harlem.

…. The church members referred to were the following: … Claude le Maistre and Hester du Bois, his wife.

…. On the same date (the 8th) the court-room witnessed an unusual scene. Pierre Cresson three years before had leased his farm to Claude Delamater, and things had not gone smoothly between them. In a sharp dispute about one of the oxen, which, as appeared, had died through Delamater’s neglect, the latter called Cresson “a villain for driving away his wife.” Mrs. Cresson was spending a season at Esopus. Coming into court with his complaint, where Delamater was sitting as one of the magistrates, the usually amiable and prudent Pierre, overcome by anger, told Claude that “he ought to slap his face.” Delamater pretended forgetfulness, but remembered that plaintiff had called him names too. The court regarding both parties at fault, fined each 12 gl. and costs. Unhappily this did not end the quarrel between the Walloon and Picard.

…. The ill-feeling between [Pierre] Cresson and Delamater again showed itself when the term of three years, during which the latter had worked Cresson’s farm, was closing. The court had ordered payment for the lost ox, but one of the farm tools was found broken. On September 1st Pierre in open court demanded his tools of Delamater, who was seated on the bench with his brother magistrates. Claude answered that the broken tool was at the smith’s, being mended. The court, hearing what passed between the parties, referred them to their agreement of September 5th, 1667, but put the court charges upon Cresson. Shortly after Claude sent Pierre word by the constable to come and examine his tools. Cresson would do no such thing but again went to the court room, October 6th, and repeated his demand for the tools. Delamater now promised to send them by his son; but the court, to vindicate its injured dignity, directed Pierre to fetch the tools himself from the defendant’s house, and fined him 12 gl. and costs of suit.

…. This chapter of incidents may fitly close with a glance at the village of New Harlem as it was in the autumn of 1673 …. [L]et us first note the occupants of the principal dwellings ere we cross the threshold, to explore the humble sphere of their domestic economy …. Demarest’s neighbor, over the cross-street, is Claude Delamater, recent magistrate, testy but kind-hearted.

…. The following day Joost Van Oblinus made complaint that having sent Adrian Sammis, his wife’s brother, living with him, to pasture the cattle “upon the point over against Simeon’s land,” he had been beaten off by Claude le Maistre with a stick.* Le Maistre said that he chased the cattle from his own fence, and not from that of the point, and admitted to have struck Adrian, but not with a stick. Poor Adrian, who could not speak for himself, being “deaf, dumb, and paralytic,” had two good witnesses, Esther Tourneur and Cornelia Waldron. Esther being called in, said that Adrian coming along the fencing with the cattle, she saw that Claude had beaten him with a stick. Cornelia testified the same, and that Claude ran after them. The Court condemned Le Maistre “in an amend of 6 gl., to the behoof of the church here, with the costs hereby accruing.” He was also directed to “draw in his fence by the point of his meadow forthwith, within the time of two months, without longer delay.”

…. A summons had been issued to Claude Le Maistre, pursuant to a motion of the constable, Oblinus, passed at the July term, to the effect that the old verdict of July 12, 1677, against George Haff and Tileman Jacobs Vandcr Mycn …. Le Maistre, be confirmed, and the debt, 85 gl., collected by execution. Le Maistre not appearing, the Court proceeded in a body to his house, but found him as unwilling as ever to admit the claim, he telling them, among other things, that he had “nothing to do with the town or town books.” On this they proceeded to attach and seize three pieces of new linen, which they measured in the presence of witnesses, and found to contain 56 ells. Notice was then given by the constable, and also posted up in writing, that on Thursday, the 18th instant, Delamater’s linen, unless redeemed, would be publicly sold. But the very next day (August 5, 1682), John and Isaac Delarnater, in behalf of their father, came and recovered the linen, giving security for the debt and costs, 93 gl. 10 st. So this vexatious matter, many years pending, was finally arranged; the brothers duly met their obligation, and Claude having died, his account with the town was closed by John Delamater paying a small balance “for his mother,” October 3, 1685.

…. Claude le Maistre, born 1620. as his autograph is, ancestor of the entire Delamater family in this country, having died before the date of the Dongan patent, his widow, Hester, and sons Jan and Isaac, took his place among the patentees. An exile from his home at Richebourg, in Artois, it was while living in the Loyerdwarsstraet, at Amsterdam, April 24, 1652, that Claude married Hester Du Bois, who was his second wife (his first wife having been Jeanne De Lannoy), and, as we have seen, also of a French refugee family. Glaude spent some of his first years, in America at Flatbush, working as a carpenter, and there four of his six children were born … [Delameter] and Coerten soon came to Harlem, where Delamater served four terms as a magistrate, between 1666 and 1673. He bought two allotments of land, from Daniel Tourneur, for which he took out a patent June 25, 1668.

In 1675 he was chosen a deacon, but his sympathies were with the French church and service, whence arose the controversy with the town regarding the parish clerk’s salary, which so disturbed his latter years. If impetuous, Claude was not incapable of generous acts when approached kindly; and his obstinacy in maintaining what he conceived to be his rights can hardly be deemed a defect in his character. He died in or about 1683, his years having exceeded three-score and ten.

… CLAUDE, BY SECOND WIFE, HAD ISSUE:

2. Jan, born in 1653, baptized March 9, 1653, married Ruth, daughter of Resolved Waldron, August IT, 1678, had nine children, and died 1702.

3. Abraham Delamater, born at Flatbush, in 1656, removed in his early manhood, with his brother Jacobus, to Kingston, Ulster County, N.Y.
