BONNIE & CLYDE DEWEESE
RE: Deweese
*The first family by the name of DeWeese to come to this country was,Garrett Hendricks deWees and his wife, Zytian,who sailed from Freesland, Holland, about the year 1689, landed in NewYork, and a few months later settled in Germantown, Pa.His ancestor is believed to have been Jan Pietre deWees, born 1563 inDortracht, Holland, the only son of French Huguenotparents who died when he was very young. Jan Pietre was adopted by afamily who gave him the name of de wees, which means "orphan",thus originating the name of de Wees or later Dewees and Deweese.

~GENEALOGY ~ALL DEWEESE SHARE A COMMON HARITAGE DEWEESE FAMILY~DESCENDANTS~
The name "Deweese" was originally "de Wees" meaning "the orphans". It is of Holland Dutch origin and is said to have came into use as a surname about the eleventh century. Adrian Dewees of Amsterdam, Holland who died in the thirteenth century, is said to have descended from the ancient lords of Kessel in Guilderland. His oldest son, Garrard (Garrett) settled in England during the reign of Henry Vlll, and there established the English "D'Ewes" family, which is the surname of the Earl of Warwick, whose coat of arms was visited in 1709. The earliest settlers of the name in America were Garrett Hendricks DeWees, his wife, Zytian~

and their children; Wilhelmina, William, Cornelius and Lewis, who came about 1688 and settled first at New Amsterdam, removing the following to Germantown, Pennsylvania, where on March 1st 1690, "Gerrie Hendricks DeWees purchased of Herman Ep den Graff, attorney of Dirck Sipman of Crefeld in Germany, a certain lot of land ..." in the inhabited part of Germantown. 1. Wilhelmina married Nicholas Rittenhouse, a desyear cendant of the royal house of Austria, and builder of the first paper mill in America. Their grandson, David Rittenhouse, was a personal friend of General George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. He was appointed by President Washington to be the first director of the united States Mint. He coined the first United States money. 2. William married Anna Christina Meels (Mills). He learned the trade of paper making as apprentice at the Rittenhouse Mill and in 1710 built the second paper mill in America. Many of his descendants served in the Revolutionary War, among whom was Colonel William Dewees, owner of large flour mills at Valley Forge, his Mansion House was used by Washington's Armey.3. Cornelius married Margaret Koster. Their son, Cornelius Jr., married Margaret Richards of the socially prominent Philadelphia family. Many of the descendants were owners of large iron furnaces. One of the many interesting connections of the family was the Dewees. He was the grandson of Adriaen Hendricks Dewees, who was born about 1595 in Holland. Adriaen took the permanent surname of "de Wees," which means "the orphan." During this time, patronymic surnames were still being used, and the Dutch research shows that the early Dewees family were sometimes listed in the records under their permanent surname, their patronymic surname, or both. Adriaen's patronymic name was Hendricks, indicating that was his father's given name. However, another source says his father was Jan Pietre de Wees.***First generation: The grandfather Adriaen Hendricks de Wees lived in Amsterdam and was a merchant book dealer and art broker. There is documentation in Holland that Adriaen had some business transactions with the artist Rembrandt van Rijn in the mid-1600s. Adriaen married Hillegond Goverts on March 28, 1615, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. They had four known children: Hendrick Dewees (1615-1661), who will be discussmarriage of Mary Richards (sister of Margaret) to John Ball, a near relative of General George Washington.4. Lewis, youngest son of Garret Hendricks Dewees, was a weaver by trade. He followed that occupation for some years in Philadelphia. About 1727 he removed his family to Kent County, Delaware, and purchased 300 acres on the North side of Fishing Creek, where he lived until his death in the spring of 1743. ***GENEALOGY: All Dewees share a common heritage***

-All-Dewees-share-a-common-heritage>Tamie DehlerThe Tribune-Star The Deweese/Dewees family name is an example of a surname where all of the families in the United States share a common heritage, all descending from a single ancestor. This family comes from the Netherlands. Dewees is one of the early permanent surnames of Holland, as the country used patronymic names (taking the given name of the father as the surname of the child) for many years. Currently, there are no people in the Netherlands who have the Dewees surname, but many in the United States with this surname. It is possible that this is a unique surname and that the single progenitor brought it with him when he left Holland.***The progenitor of the family in the United States was Garrett Hendricks ed below; Isaak Dewees (1619-before 1657), who married Trinjte Jans in 1846 in the Netherlands; Gerrit Dewees (1625- before 1657), no known marriage; and Tryntje (pronounce the "je" as "ie") Catherina Dewees (1626-before 1674), who married Johannes De Visscher in 1657 in the Netherlands. Adriaen Hendricks de Wees died about 1674 and wife Hildegond died in 1656, both in Amsterdam. They were members of the Dutch Reformed Church.***Second generation: Adriaen's son Hendrick Dewees was born about 1615 in Beverwijk, Netherlands. Hendrick was christened on December 6, 1615. He married Adriaentje Jans on April 22, 1640, in Leiden, Netherlands. Adrianetje Jans was born in Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, parents unknown. She died after November 1661. Hendrick and Adrianetje had four children: Garrett Hendricks (1641-1700), who will be discussed below; Jan H. (1641-1674), William H. (1643-1663); and Nelletje H. (1649-1663). The father Hendrick Dewees and his brother Isaak later moved to the East Indies, where it is believed that they both died.***Third generation: Garrett Hendricks Dewees was born was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, about 1641. He married Sytie Lieuwes, daughter of Lieuvens, on Sept. 28, 1662, in Lieuwarden, Netherlands. Sytie was from the province of Friesland in the Netherlands and was born before 1649. Garrett Hendricks and wife Sytie immigrated to the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (now New York City) around 1663, embarking from the Dutch province of Friesland. They moved to Germantown (now a part of Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, in 1690 and purchased land there. Their children were: Divertie (born 1666 New York), Lewis (1670 New York), Ariantie (born 1673 New York), Lambert (born 1675 New York), Hendrick (born 1677 New York), William (1679 New York-1745), Lysbeth (born 1681 New York), and Cornelius (1682 New York-1735 Philadelphia).***If you have a Deweese/Dewees lineage, your line will go back to one of the children of Garrett Hendricks and Sytie (Lieuwes) Dewees and your research will take you back to Germantown, Pa.*************

Hi Tamie,
This was my great uncle. I never knew how he died until I found this. You have a picture of the cemetery he is in but there is no picture of a marker. Is there one there? Do you know if the last name was Knoblach or Knoblaugh of the little boy as it says Knoblach but his parents were buried as Knoblaugh. So I am curious about this as well.

RE: Irene Lucille Shores
Okay, we'll try this again. I sent the first edit, which is her death date "full date" is in the photo of her gravestone.

I'll resend the other two edits. The Shores are descendants of an ancestor and the information is correct. I will resend her parents names. Her maiden name was Knapp.

Now you have me confused as why you would denied the edit since you knew nothing about them. If this is too confusing how about transferring the memorial to me. I don't mean to be sarcastic or mean but I don't want to think I am wasting my time inputting information for someone. Thank you.

I was just curious if there was some solid evidence. I also have Mabel Byrnes, and my research supports that family.

Thank you for your quick response.
