Van Etten, Jr. was the great-great grandson of Jacob Jansen Van Etten, the immigrant who was married on January 11, 1665, at Kingston, to Annetje Arians, and in the list of his ancestors were Albert Heymanse Roosa and Evert Pels, two of the first three Schepens of Esopus, the other being Cornelis Barents Slecht, and these three, with the "Schout" Roeloff Swartwout, formed the first Court of Justice in Ulster County, New York. His father, Anthony Van Etten, Sr., was a blacksmith and a man of considerable education and great strength of character. Anthony Van Etten, Jr. inherited the mental strength of his father, and during the early years he acquired an intellectual culture much superior to his environment. In stature he was five feet, ten inches weighing about one hundred and sixty pounds. In temperment he was dignified and reserved, and his relatives, neighbors, and friends usually referred to him as "the gentlemen." In 1802, with his wife, Jemima Cuddeback and their oldest child, Hannah, he moved to Owasco, Cayuga County, New York, where he became a farmer upon an estate of about five hundred acres. Through his efforts the Reformed Dutch Church at Owasco was organized and a picturesque building for worship was erected. He served as Sergeant of a company at Black Rock during the war of 1812, subsequently being commissioned First Lieutenant, and his early death on January 30, 1821, was the result of illness contracted during his military services in that campaign. Jemima Cuddeback, his widow, never remarried and lived upon the estate at Owasco until her death on June 9, 1861.
