Thanks for your reply, but actually my question was about my Hoogaboom ancestor: Ebenezer Smith (b. 1751 Egremont/Sheffield, Berks, MA- Rev. War Soldier) was s/o Ebenezer Smith b. 1707 and Winnetje HOOGABOOM/Hogeboom. (This name was handwritten on a DAR document, and my knowledge is nil on Dutch names- so this spelling may be incorrect.) Below is Ebenezer Smith's line:
Ebenezer Smith (b. 1707) was s/o Philip Smith and Mary Bliss.
Philip Smith was s/o Philip Smith and Rebecca Foote.
Philip Smith was s/o Samuel Smith b. 1602 and Elizabeth b. 1602. (Lt. Samuel Smith b. ca 1601 of Hadley). (Two of Lt Samuel Smiths offspring married Foote family members.)
Our Foote families may very well connect, but Winnetje HOOGABOOM just doesn't show up in anyone's records that I can find. She would probably be born about 1705-1720, and most likely in Eastern NYS or Western MA. I've seen online that an alternate spelling can be Wynetje, and that it is Americanized into Lavinia. If in the future you can connect our Winnetje/Wynetje to your family, please get in touch.
