Re: My Ackerson/Eckerson Line 1669-now
I just found this information, and thought you might like to see it.
Source of Information: Records of the Reformed Dutch Chruch of New York City; "Two Allied Families," Society of Descendants of Johannes de la Montagne News Letter, Summer 1985, pp. 231- 234.
Thomas Eckerson immitrated to the US before 1644.He died shortly after arriving.
1. Jan Thomaszen
2.Sara b. probably Plymouth, England m. Hendrick Janszen Van Feurden c. 17 Apr 1660 New York, NY
3.Elisabeth d. probably 22 Feb 1649 New York, NY
The four Eckerson children were baptised as quadruplets on 11 Dec 1644 New York, NY, but it is unlikely they were a multiple birth. Sara's marriage record says she is from Plymouth
(probably England, but it could be MA) and Jan's marriage record indicates he was born in Manhattan.
