I am David Omtzigt from the Netherlands and my grandmother's surname was Canoy. Do you happen to have any more information about the immigrant Cannoy (date/place/country of birth), or of his son Phillip? It would be interesting to know whether and how the American branch of the Canoy family is related to the Dutch Canoy's. The Dutch genealogy goes back about twelve generations, starting with Petrus Canoy, who was a jurist and died before 1654. (See http://home.wish.net/~fmoubis/Canoy/frame3.htmhttp://home.wish.net/~fmoubis/Canoy/frame3.htm .) The owner of the Dutch genealogy site (Ferry Moubis) might already have been in contact with you.
