I am seeking information on the following VANDERHOOFs and any of their family connections:
(1) Gilbert VANDERHOOF (possibly born mid-late 1800s, likely in NW Oregon) lived near Antelope, Oregon had land patents (homestead and stock raising) issued in 1920 for Section 32, Township 8-S, Range 18-E (Willamette Mer) in Wasco County
Topo maps show a VANDERHOOF CANYON in Sections 32 & 33.
The south side of this property is on the border with Jefferson County.
(2) John VANDERHOOF (possibly born mid-late 1800s, likely in NW Oregon) had land patents (homestead and stock raising) issued in 1920 for portions of Sections 6, 7 & 8, Township 9-S, Range 18-E (Willamette Mer) in Jefferson County
Very near border with Wasco County
The properties for these two men were within a half mile or so to each other, across the Wasco-Jefferson county line.I suspect these VANDERHOOFS were brothers, and they may have had a sister named Susan Accelia Vanderhoof Windom Hendrixson who became my g-g-grandmother.
