I also descend from:
Justus Abrams born 1778 in the U.S., died 6 September 1861 in Havastraw, NY
Mary (maiden possibly Rokorsch) born 1781 possibly in Holland and died 1865/66
I descend from their son Leonard, born 1812 and died 1859 and married to Emmeline Blauvelt.
In the 1810 census Justus appears as Justus Abraham but in Asa Abrams petition to the Surrogate Court the deceased Justus is Justus Abrams.
Further confusing things is the death certificate of Jesse Abrams (son #4).Jesse's father appears as Jesse Abrams born in the U.S.His mother is Mary Abrams born in Holland.
Hope this is of some help.
