We are cousins & I have info for you!George and Hattie were my gg-grandparents, as well.
George was the son of Jeremiah Van Decarr and Harriet Quackenbush & was born in Crescent, NY June 29, 1850.
Hattie Cross was the daughter of John Cross and Mary Potts & was born in Crescent on Feb. 2, 1854.
Jeramiah Van Decar was the son of Garrett Van Decarr and Harriet Shear and was born Jan. 20, 1825, probably in Crescent.
Garrett Van Decarr was the son of George and Harriet (surname unknown) around 1800 and probably in Vicsher Ferry near Crescent.He was aged about 90 when he died.
This is all I really know.Supposedly, the VanDecar line descends from Dirke van der Karr, who came from Holland in the 17th century and who suppposedly had many sons that settled in the area.
Apologies if I left out anything.If you need any more info or clarification, please let me know.
