Bio and Links
I am a retired teacher and I am having an interesting time finding the ancestors of my father and my husband's mother as I can go so far back with each line. Some of these people were well-known in their time and some took part in important historical events. I majored in history in college so some history really comes alive when I find relatives or ancestors of my husband and myself on the scene at important events. For all relatives both famous or non-famous I feel it is a mark of respect to make note of their lives and passing.

Stephen Palmer 1759-1814
It appears to me that the three daughters of Stephen Palmer married three Waterbury brothers, all sons of Thomas Waterbury (1759-1840) of North Castle and his wife Hannah Husted (1769-1852), who were married at Greenwich 1786; Sophia (born 1795) married William Waterbury (1792-1829), Eliza (1798-1839) was the first wife of Drake Waterbury (1795-1869), who married 2nd Rachel Husted, and Sarah H. (1802-1881) married John Waterbury (1798-1872); as given in your post, the dates for these three Palmer sisters, except for the birth year of Sarah Husted Palmer, all precisely match the dates for Sophia, Eliza and Sarah H. Waterbury, who are buried in the Palmer Cemetery at Pleasantville. The wives of William and John Waterbury are known independently to be Sophia and Sarah H. Palmer, and Eliza's dates match those of Eliza, first wife of Drake Waterbury.

RE: Maj Dirck Wesselse Ten Broeck
Thank you so much for your quick response.We are traveling from Brandon(Tampa),FL.We are spending about a week in NYC, then are headed to Albany for another week to look into the genealogy and history there(Dutch and the Palatines).

I am related to the son(Dirck) Wessels Ten Broeck and Catharina Lookermans. Most of my research has been on line, so this may be an adventure.LOL!

Thanks again!

Maj Dirck Wesselse Ten Broeck
Hi! First let me thank you for your work on "Find-a-Grave" which has been an invaluable source for finding out information on my genealogy.Maj. Dirck Wesselse Ten Broeck is my 9th Great-Grandfather. My husband and I are planning on visiting NY soon and I would very much like to visit the Ten Broeck Cemetery where he is buried.Could you tell me if it is open to the public, or on private property? I don't wish to trespass on anyone's property. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Again, thanks so much for the information and the work you do on "Find-a-Grave".

peake Finch site
Hi, I was with my husband and 81 year old father. The road was rough and you can walk it. The neighbor behind had the fields mowed. In just a couple spots were wet I was concerned about mosquitos. The 3 of us walked it slowly because Dad's eye sight is limited. So we didn't see it. I walked about 1 mile back in the woods. I saw old farm equipment from the early 1900s. Saw a deer, it is not near the highway at all. So I turned around and met my family. As we walked back we saw the stones just off the road. My husband and I climbed the hill to the stones. Now I think that stone on the ground was maybe Amos Thompson not Samuel. I wish I had a brush to clean off the stone.

If we had a truck or 4 wheel drive we could have driven the road. The vegetation on the road was less than ankle high and there was a lot of gravel. I saw really pretty wild flowers little violets blooming.

I will send you the pictures of the area my email is

Peake/Finchley cemetery at old Barry farm
Hi Barbara, I visited Barry Farm and a very nice man was living in the house and let me go up the road. I found the stone clearly of Jonathan Peake and wife Rachel. I lost my footing and didn't get a clear photo of Rachel's stone. I also found Thompson it looked like Samuel Thompson completely flat on the ground. I also found a Finch and other stones the were not readable.

Memorial #89543306...I posted a photo of Hannah Hunt's grave stone. It indicated she died Sept. 15, 1812 and that she was 72 at death. I know you hoped to get this info. There are other photos I'm posting. You may want to check them out.

Catherine Jeremiah Hogeboom Storm
Memorial 7049056

Hello in my research I have found the birth and christening record - book "Dutch Reformed Church Claverack, Columbia, New York, USA" found on -- the information for the above reads: Cathrina Hogeboom born 2 Oct 1750 Christening 8 Oct 1750 Dutch Reformed Claverack, Columbia, New York, USA daughter of Jeremais Hogeboom and Janntje Van Alen with godparents Jocheam Radcliff and Hilletje Hogeboom. I hope this helps. My ancestor is Henry Hogaboam but we still are unable to locate his parents in New York. Margaret

RE: The old Barry farm in East chatham
Thank you for telling me, I would be with my 80 year old father and I wouldn't want him to get hurt. We might just go by the farm to see the area. We have ancesters buried in the cemetery of the maples not too far away. I just really got into the geanology stuff since I retired. My dad is fascinated by what we've found so far. I just purchased prints of 2 old maps that have the Curtis houses on them. Samuel and Zacheus Curtis.
