Van Petten/Van Pattens
I stumbled on your correspondence to Phyllis Zegers. Myndert Van Patten is my 1st cousin 5 times removed.
There is an excellent source for that line available on Rootsweb/Ancestry here:

There are 100's of Van Petten/Pattens and you can trace back to Claas and fill in any gaps you might have. I also have a printed version of the data but it is not available any more. I believe that the current owner of the on-line database was working on a CD, you could contact him through the Rootsweb page.

Hi, Mari,
Sounds like we are 4th cousins. I got your note about the VanPetten/VanPatten line. Unfortunately I don't document my sources well so I can't even guess where I got this info - probably several sources.

Anyway my data shows: Claas Frederickse VanPetten (1641-1728) and Aeffie Arentise Bratt/Bradt (1649-1728) were our 7 x great grandparents. Their son (our 6 x great) was Nicholas "Claas" VanPetten (1690 - ?) who married Rebecca Groot (born 1692). Their son Nicholaas N. VanPetten (1716-1790) married his second cousin Sarah Clement (1724-1790). They were our 5 x great grandparents whose son was Arent Nicholas Van Patten (born 1764, died ?). Arent married Engeltje "Helen" LaGrange, his 3rd cousin once removed. Their son was Myndert Van Patten (1793-1861) who married Hannah Cooper (1796-1861). They had your great great grandfather Aaron and my great great grandfather John Coop VanPatten.

I have written short (2-3 pages) bios on Aaron, John Coop, and Claas (1641-1728). I'd be glad to share them via regular email if you write to me at I'd love to get you input & any corrections on my write-up of Aaron.

Who were the people in the line between you and Aaron VanPatten? My line is: Myndert VanPatten - John Coop VanPatten - Francis "Frank" VanPatten - Rachel (VanPatten) Porter - William Porter (my dad)... then me, Phyllis (Porter) Zegers. I live in Roseburg, Oregon.

RE: Anna Schreiber
Hi Mari, I am not related and just transferred them to you. The info came from this index "Riverside Cemetery Burials 1841 - 1908; an incomplete list" and unfortunately, I don't have any other info on them. Also on the plot is Constantine Nicolai who has a memorial that another lady created. I'm sure she'd transfer him if you ask. Wish I could help you more, but am happy you found your relatives! Mary

Grand View Memorial Park Vols
William & Kathryn Van Patten
Don't remember if we responded to this question earlier or not (out of town and no access to some records). Unfortunately, we do not have any record of either William or Kathryn Van Patten being interred at Grandview Memorial Park.

It appears that Jeannette Lape purchased her own plot in 1951, then used it in 1981 when she died in Santa Barbara County. There are no other Lape or Van Patten names in the records.

From the California Death Index, it appears that William and Kathryn both died in Ventura County, so you might look for them there?

Worse case, you could contact the Ventura County Recorder for a copy of one of their death certificates. You only need an Informational Copy, which does not require the notarized statement, but does cost $21:

Good luck with your ongoing research!
