The chart showing the interrelated Rycken (Riker), Lent and Rapelye families involved with the Lent-Rapelye Homestead includes # numbers and asterisks. The pound-signed numbers indicate the grave marker locations in the Riker Cemetery. The single asterisk refers to * Daniel LENT, last member of the Lent family to own the Lent-Rapelye homestead. He sold it on April 7, 1797. The double asterisks refer to **Isaac RAPELYE, first of his family to own the homestead. He bought it on 2-24-1806.
The illustration above and the explanation of the numbers and asterisks DO appear in Edgar Alan Nutt's 2004 book.
