There is at present, only a single fact to record of Dr. John Van Alstyne. He was for several years a diligent practitioner, with an office on Hamilton street, near Green. He joined the Society in 1839. He was overtaken by pulmonary disease, but labored on until his strength was exhausted. About 1844, in the hope of once more recuperating his strength, he took a sea voyage, but died, and his remains were consigned to the ocean.
