Researching one's genealogy is a bit like a treasure hunt. As you learn more and more about your ancestors, surprises keep occuring. I am thankful to all the people who have taken the time to research the past. I aim to contribute as well. I am working on my Peck ancestry which goes back to Joseph and some of his immigrant sons who arrived in 1638. Other names include Vanderwerker, Van Patten, Shoup/Shoop/Schupp, McNeil, Cramer, Paine, McDougall, Lant, Reid, Campbell, Wagman, Foster, Cushman, Grandy, Bartlett, Haverly, Duesler, Snell, Wendell, Glen, Hawley, Harmon, etc. I get great satisfaction in discovering and entering these historical records, before they are lost for good. Most of my entries are in New york, MA, RI, CT and New Jersey. I am a retired science teacher. I have completed 10 Earthwatch expeditions and travelled to over 60 countries. Climbing mountains is also appealing having been up Kilimanjaro, Whitney, Olympus, Rysy and others. Genealogy is another fun and productive way to spend my time. |
One of my great joys is to visit villages where my ancestors lived before coming to America. In 2010 I visited Hingham and Beccles, England where the paternal Pecks lived in the 1500 and 1600's. We also visited Petten, Holland for the maternal Van Pattens and Meppel, Holland for the Van Alstynes and Vanderwerkers. In 2012 I visited Scotland for the McNeils and Reids and then the Mozel River Valley in the Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany for the Shoups/Schupps and Mais lines.

Thank you for linking Neeeltje to her parents.

Glad I could help. Sue

I believe that you have her date of death mis-transcribed. The stone states 1957 and the transcription says 1967.
Thank you for the great photos. My paternal ancestors are part of this inter-related group of families in Washington County.
|Thomas Dunne||William Lant|
Transfer complete, please take good care of him.

I just noticed that you took the pictures of my 4th Grand Grandfather's Memorial Stone at Sterling Center Cemetery, Sterling, Cayuga Co., NY. His name was Amos H. Reed and I thank you for attaching the pics to the posting.
I have walked that cemetery and never found the stone, could you remember and give me some hints where to find it?

Hi Dave, My sister Jeri was here from KS for 3 days this week. We were at the Brownville Cemetery in Northumberland. I have been there occasionally when I can get the time and clean brush from the location around the Van's. If you are not aware the sign has been replaced at the path entrance. It looked as though it had been hit and broken,maybe by a passing plow's wing. It has been welded and painted again.
I should have down loaded your info before our visit there. We were going by the information in the book. I will have another reference now to put together and work off of.

I do not do the edit tab, as I have no idea where to refere people to if they ask where the information comes from. I usually list them and the information in the bio.
I know that I do not have to say take good care of her as you always do.
When am I going to submit you for membership in the Sons of the American Revolution??? Our site is at: http://www.saratogabattle-sar.org/ Let me know if you are interested.
|Carl Philo||RE: Andrew Hawley|
I traced the Philo surname to Saratoga county and purchased a publication compiling headstones in the county. After entering the ancestors I could identify, I entered a few entire small cemeteries. The compilation was written in the 1960s.
