I am researching the names-Ives, Van Valkenburg, Wright, Babcock, Brush, Conklin, Kutz. Many of these people are from the East coast, New York, Connecticut, Massachuesetts, New Jersey. The Kutz's came from Germany in 1891 by way of Baltimore, MD.
If you think we may be distant cousins, please e-mail me, I'd love to hear from you!!
