He died in 1828 according to records of the church. His will was dated 8 May 1826 and proved 12 Mar 1828. In it he mentioned his wife Hannah, sons John (dec), Henry, Jacob, Daus.

He married Annetje Dedite (One record said he married Maria Decker; another says Hannah Decker of New Paltz, but nothing found indicates the correctness of Decker, although the spellings could be for Decker. She is lited in his will in 1827 but not in the church records with him in 1827.

He died on 14 November 1774 at Bergenfield, Bergen, NJ, at age 60.
      John Hendrick Goetchius was also known as Johannes Henricus Goetschis. John Hendrick Goetchius was also known as Rev. We are descended from John Hendrick (Henry) Goetchius. His granddaughter Hannah Goetchius married Edwin FitzRandolph. Family history has John Hendrick parents as Mauritus Goetchius and Esther Werndtlin. John Henry Goetchius was born in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland about 1714. The History of Hudson and Bergen Counties says he was born in Liguria Switzerland in 1718 and came to America with his father in 1728. He preached on Long Island until he came to Hackensack, NJ and preached there until 1748 when he took charge of the Church at Schraalenburgh where he preached until his death in 1774.
The history of the Zabriske family states Rachel Zabriske was married to Rev Johan Hendrick Goetchius, son of Maurice Goetchius and Esther Werndtlin, 26 Aug 1750 at Hackensack. It says he was the storm center of the Ref Churches from the day he landed in Philadelphia in 1735 until his death 14 Nov 1774. When he came to Philadelphia with his father, who died upon arrival, he became the boy-wonder preacher of the area covering about 20 churches, all without legal ordination.
In 1741 he became legally ordained by Dorsius, Frelinghuysen and the Presbyterian Tenant to test the requirement that all theological candidates must return to Holland for ordination. In his first parish in Jamica, Long Island, his ordination was challanged. Word from Holland was slow and a result the delay resulted in a breach between the conservative party and liberal coetus. In 1748, he was vindicated by Dutch officials, and he moved to Bergen County. Here in addition to serving his parishioners, he tutored young men for the ministry. Eventually his theological students became the nucleus of Queens College, now Rutgers University. He became one of its first trustees (Info from Ruth Heigard of New Paltz, NY). He married Anna Holman and Magdelena Christie. He was buried in the south Schraalenburgh Reformed Church with his first wife, Rachel Zabriske.
Children of Rachel Zabriske and Rev Johan Hendrick Goetchius are listed as Johannes, b July 1751, chr 21 July, married Ann Dedite; Rev Stephen b 25 Oct 1752, married Elizabeth DuBois; Abraham b 12 Sep 1754, married Jannetje Campbell and Rachel --; Jacob, b 12 July 1756; Peter, b 1 Apr 1758, married Catherine Eckhart; Joseph, b 5 Sep 1760, married Jannetje Blauvelt and Catherine Lutkins; Samuel, b. 18 Sep 1762, married Elizabeth, Martha Strachen and Susannah; Margaret b 7 Jan 1765 married Jonathan Dubois and Christian b 14 July 1769, married Aaltje Blauvelt.

      Moritz Goetschi was also known as Moritz Goetschius. Moritz Goetschi was also known as Maurice (Mauritius) Goetchius. Little is known about Maurice Goetchius except that he was the father of John Hendrick Goetchius. His wife was Esther Werdtlin. The History of Hudson and Bergen County states the father's name was John Henry - however, I feel this was a confused error. It states he was born in the Canton of Zurick, Switzerland in 1695 and came to America about 1728 and preached in the valleys of the Susquehanna and Delaware in PA, and at Skippah.

The Zabriske geneology states he came to America leading a group of about 400 emigrants from Switzerland and had been delegated supervision of the reformed churches in PA. However, he died upon arrival in PA, and his son John Henry became the boy-wonder.
