I'm sure you have obtained the information you are seeking by now, but I am new to the Sooy Family research.
My records show that Noah, the son of Joost Sooy Jr. and his wife Elizabeth Smith, married a Harriet Cavileer (I assume she was of the Cavileer family who built the boats--partner of Joost).
I am wondering if you have documentation that shows that Joost and Elizabeth's daughter Mary, married George Bevis.And if so, any listings of their children.
My line is Joost Sr-Sarah; Joost Jr-Elizabeth Smith; Mary Sooy-George Bevis; Mary Bevis-Daniel Mason; Sarah Ann Mason-Elias Henry Burris; Ida Ann Burris-William Vinson Ashburn; Grace Mae Ashburn-William Henry Norcross; Freeman Norcross-Ruth Wilson; me. . .Leslie Norcross Hines
I have to confess, I only recently began researching the Sooy line because when I originally found it in my Tree, I thought it was a joke or someone's branch-filler ... Joost/Yoos Sooy??? (how's that for a nice palindrome!)But after running into more researchers and this forum, I figured it MUST be legitimate.
Can anyone help me with information about Mary Sooy?
