Thank you for your reply.My children descend from Gideon Dutcher through their mother.So far as I know, I am not related by blood.
I recently discovered the Dutcher/Ducher family in the 1790 census of Pawling in Dutchess County, New York. Gideon Dutcher, spelled Ducher, was listed along with some of my Duel/Deuel ancestors. The Vredenburgh surname, also in the Dutcher line, was listed in this census: Van Vredenburgh,William, 2-2-2-0-0.David Ducher of this census might be Gideon's father,if David lived so long.I am not sure whether Gideon is father or son Gideon, but the Dutcher family is certainly evident at (http://www.rootsweb.com/~nydutche/1790/1790pawling.htm.
If you can sort out the Dutchers of this census, I would be glad to add your data to my records.I cannot quite focus this data.
