I have spent the last ten years trying to piece together the genealogy of the Dutch-American Schellinger family, starting with Jacobus Schellinger, who was born in Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Nederland, circa 1625, and immigrated to the Dutch colony of Nieu Amsterdam circa 1650. I'm a descendant of Jacobus' youngest son, Cornelius, who removed to Cape May, NJ, circa 1690. My branch of this family then removed to Hopewell Township, Cumberland Co, NJ, circa 1810.
Having completed the majority of research on my line-of-descent, I now try to associate any "orphaned" Dutch-Schellingers with their family ancestors; this is especially true for Schellingers who were military veterans.

RE: Skelenger- Molloy Headstone Photo
Julia Molloy came up on the Find A Grave listing for Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. Perhaps if you call them and tell them she is your great grandmother, they will give you the information on the "lot card". That will include who purchased the plot, what family members are there and hopefully birth and death dates. Good luck!

RE: Skelenger- Molloy Headstone Photo
Thanks for contacting me. My interest was in the Molloy surname. My maternal grandmother was a Molloy. My great grandfather William Molloy was a 1st generation Irish American born in Brooklyn. I'd you have any information about your Molloy ancestors, please share.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for clearing this up. When i hit the link it just came to the one memorial with the picture on it. I didn't realize there was another one. I deleted it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Willis Schellenger
Why would you want me to delete him? He had epilepsy and was put away. He deserves to be remembered.

RE: Schellinger
Thank you very much for your kind words. My family also has deep roots in the area so I am sure I will be coming across more Schellinger families in my genealogy travels. I went back to First Baptist yesterday to pay my respects to a few of the generations of my family and I noticed another Schellinger that I had not noticed the first time through. Her name was Mellie Schellinger. I have added her profile and I look forward to your input.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the edits that you made to Alex and Achsah. If they are anywhere in your family I would be more then happy to transfer them over to you or I can continue to maintain them myself I will leave the choice to you.

Thank You for the additional information, it has been added to the memorial. I'm happy to have been a help to your ancestry quest and you are quite welcome for the memorial. Unfortunately, I have no further information as the memorials I enter start with a headstone photo which I have taken, usually while walking the cemetery looking for someone else. Best Wishes for continuing success in locating the others you search for.
