I am looking for anyone who has information about Rullef (RuDutcher, who was born in 1768 in Dover Plans, Dutchess County, NY.Ruleff married Eleanor Elizabeth Renault (or Reno?) and they had children:
Simeon Dutcher Dorcas Dutcher Snyder Margaret Dutcher Manger Hannah Dutcher Peeso Marquis Dutcher Peter Dutcher Anna Dutcher Peeso Philo Dutcher Phebe Dutcher Cypher Dutcher George Dutcher
Descendants of Rullef's son Marquis meet yearly in the area of Cherry Valley, Otsego Co, NY for a family reunion.The group has done a lot of research on Ruleff's descendants, but I don't think we found any proof of his parentage.
I suspect that Rullef is the son of one of the sons of Gabriel Dutcher (b. 1720, in Tackkanick?, NY) and Elizabeth Knickerbocker.I saw one family tree online that indicated that Rullef's father was Lauwrenz, but I've found very little other evidence of this.Both Lauwrenz and John Dutcher moved to Cherry Valley from their birthplace.I have quite a bit of information about John's children, but nothing about Lauwrenz.
Does anyone have any info that can help me link Rullef to parents?Thanks!
