    • Isaac Alvan VanHook graduated from Columbia College in New York with bachelor and masters degrees, and became a prominent attorney in New York City. He served as the Attorney for the Board of Directors for Manhattan, and served as an officer in the New York Militia during the war of 1812. After 1815, he decided to attend the Reformed Church Seminary in New Brunswick, NJ and become a minister / missionary for the Reformed Church of America (perhaps his wife/family were gone by then). He spent the next several years opening (or attempting to open) new RCA churches in New Jersey and New York, and working for the mission efforts of the RCA. He is believed to have died about 1834 in New York.

      Isaac VanHook baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church, New York City, June 5, 1774; the sponsors were Isaac Van Hook and Cornelia Sebring, his grandparents.
