While everyone's alerted to van Deusen, I'll post my van Duzer line:
Locations: NY (where?);
PA - Luzerne Co.: Pittston; Slocum Hollow / Scranton;
1. Nicholas van Duzer m. ---
2. Robert van Duzer (b.1812, NY) m. Maria Hollenbeck (b. 1811, NY)
3. Nicholas van Duzer (b. 1837, Slocum Hollow),
m. (1861, Pittston) Maria Ellen Everett (b. 1843)
4. Emma J. / Immogene van Duzer (b. 1863)
m. (1, 188x) Ira Benjamin Walter (b. 1855)
(Emma m. (2) John/Robert Johnson, Scranton)
Robert and Maria are listed in the "unconnected" (sigh) chapter of a
large van Deusen book (sorry, I don't have the book, so can't offer
lookups). Any ideas where I should look in NY for the van Duzers? Or
the Hollenbecks? Maria Hollenbeck's father was also named Nicholas, and
was born in 1790 in NY.
Everett: Maria Ellen's parents were Jacob Everett and Elisabth ---.
Johnson: includes unusual names like Ovid, Horace, and Priestly ...
Walter: Henry >> Henry H. >> Ira; maiden names: CRESS/GRESS, COMSTOCK,
CROSSIER/CROZIER, LETTEER/LATEAR, ROSS; PA and possibly NJ.
Happy to compare data on any of these names.
