The first move westward into the American hinterland began early for the Woertman's of New York, As early as 1650, a Dutch explore Cornelius Van Tunhover, had returned to the New York area to tell of a valley where the fattest deer roamed and 60-pound turkeys could be had for the shooting. This land, he said, was the pleasantest and handsomest place a man had ever seen. Huge pines, oaks, chestnut and hickory trees grew there, and a glistening river meandered through meadows and fields of corn. Not too long after this, negotiations began between the Dutch and the Raritan Indians; and, by the 6th of Dec. 1651, Augustine Hermanon had received a grant of almost all the entire northern half of what is now Somerset County--granted to him by the Raritan Indians.

Among the early settlers of this beautiful valley was Jan Derick Woertman (Wortman) who, with his family, came from Brooklyn Heights, New York, in the year 1699 his daughter Elizabeth being christened in Somerville in September of that year. By the year 1704, he removed to the village of Raritan where he remained for a number of years, moving from there with grown children to Pluckernin. Here he erected a long old-fashioned house made of logs that was to be known for many years as the Workman Homestead. Here a descendant, Jan Wortman, known as Squire Wortman (no doubt because of his vast estate of 500 acres) entertained the patriots, Gisbert Sutphel (see Catherine Wortman), Aaron MeIick, and Colonel Stephen Hunt when they met to plan their resistance to the British army a year before the Declaration of Independence was signed. It was here too that Jan Wortman, trained by his father in the family trade as a blacksmith, shed the horses of George Washington and his entourage during the RevoIutionary War. Some nights John and his helpers worked all through the night repairing the carriages and shoeing the horses so they would be ready for the General the next morning.

The Woertman tradition in America had been one of civic loyalty. Derick Jans had begun it in 1673 when he became an officer of his town in Brooklyn. Jan Derick continued it as Justice of the Peace in New Jersey; Squire Jan Wortman, his nephews and sons planned and worked for the revolutionary forces and from Somerset County Peter and Andrew Wortman joined the Militia. In a neighboring state from the county of Washington, Maryland, other Workman sons, whose record follows, on the 28th day of August 1776 joined the service declaring themselves, Isaac Workman, Stephen Workman, Joseph Workman, Jacob Workman, John Workman, and Andrew Workman, to be for the cause of liberty.
