My wife Carol & I enjoy searching for our own relatives. Carol comes from Jasonville IN: Stockrahm, Terhune, Crabtree, Shoptaw, Pirtle, Walker, are her lines. Mine in Philadelphia, PA. McCullough, Roney, Bradley, Waters. We are eager to fill our tree and will help others as we can. Our life takes us from VT to SC during the year.|
It is exciting digging up the our pasts and leading a hand to others as they search.

Thank you SO much!!! -Elizabeth L. Deas-Roberts

Hi John, I have a tree on Ancestry....I'll try to check and see what I have on that branch if anything. If you live close....you can go to the Sullivan County Historical Society ( I think that is what it's called) and ask about the PIRTLE book a Mr. Gambil had possession of a book that was researched by PIRTLE lady. I can't think of her name right now...Delcie Pirtle maybe!!!
Nice to hear from you and I will try to get back with you!!!
|Laura Jones||Stephen Robertson|
Hi, Stephen was my 4th great grandfather. I went with a brother a few months ago and hiked his track of land. We think we might have pinpointed the ridge where Stephen and Winnie are buried. The owner said we could come back and look some more. From what I remember, the stones were last seen in the 20's or 30's by workers taking a break of the ridge. If you have any info, I would love it!

Occupation: Ribbon Weaver, FarmerAlbert is supposedly descended from a long line of French Huguenot ribbon weavers who fled from Paris to the Netherlands in the sixteenth century to escape religious persecution. Kiliaen Van Rensselaer paid Albert's passage to the New World in exchange for his service in the cultivation of tobacco. Albert is listed in Dec 1637 as Elbert Elbertz, age 18, weaver, from Nieukerck. He was accompanied aboard the Kalmar Nyckel (Swedish for "Key of Kalmar") by Gerrit Hendricksen Blauvelt. It is widely believed that he came from a small village called Huinen. Huinen is in the county of Putten, in the province of Gelderland, in the Netherlands. There is a town and county called Nijkerk in Gelderland, which borders the county of Putten, that is probably the Nieukerck listed above. After working off his passage Albert apparently went to New Amsterdam and was married around 1648-1650 to Geertje Denyce in Flatbush, Kings, N.Y. He was one of the signers of the Remonstrance of the Commonality of New Netherland, dated the 28 Jul 1649, by which the signers protested what they considered to be unjust regulations by the government. In 1657 Albert and Geertje rented a farm on the Nyack tract in New Utrecht, Long Island. He built a crude home and dugout cellar, covered by a heavy thatch of straw. In Feb 1660 the Director General and Council of New Amsterdam issued orders that those persons who lived outside the villages must, as a caution against "Indian depredations," destroy or unroof their dwellings and move into the villages. Albert refused to destroy his home, and as a result he was arrested and fined fifty guilders. He was found guilty of "non-conformity," refused to pay the fine, and went to prison. He was released from prison on his promise to help erect a house in New Utrecht. After building the house, he and his family went to Flatlands, Long Island, where he bought a house and fifty acres from Jacob Van Couwenhoven, and another piece of land from Jacob Steendam. He was involved in several private disputes, incidents of civil disobedience, and court litigation until he became a major land owner in Flatlands. On the 3 Apr 1664, he sold his New Utrecht plantation to Nathaniel Brittan. In 1665, he bought more land from the Couwenhovens in Flatlands, and in 1675 he bought land in the same locality of Elbert Elbertse Stoothoff, to which he removed. In 1677 he belonged to the Dutch Church at Flatlands, and he is on tax roles there between 1676 and 1683. On the 27 May 1685, with his son Albert, he obtained a patent for 5000 acres on the Passaic River. He is said to have died that same year,
