This is more of a note of sympathy for you people. You are all caught in one of the largest skeins, of one of the biggest tangles of North American genealogy. I mean, it's huge. The Brundages were probably one of the most prolific colonial families; and move around? They couldn't sit still. Even worse, they intermarried with other families just as bad. You probably wonder if you are related to each other. Odds are, in most cases, you are. You're probably related to half of the continent; perhaps more. My ancestors were the Flewellings (Flewwellings, Flewwellins, Fluellings, etc.) Researchers have been working on them for 150 years and we still have problems. One of these ancestors, the ancestor of the vast majority of Flewellings found north of New Jersey are descended from Thomas and Hannah (Smith) Flewelling of Hempstead, Nassau Co., Long Island, NY. Their children were born there between 1695-1715 (roughly.) Amongst their children were Hannah (m. David Brundage) and Jane (m. Jonathan Brundage.) I was tempted to try and trace their husbands' families; took one look and ran. From Long Island some went to Westchester, Orange and Dutchess Counties. With the Revolutionary War some went to New Brunswick and some stayed in New York State. From New York they went up the Hudson then to Indiana, Michigan, Ontario in Canada, and then everywhere. From New Brunswick they went to Ontario, Maine, Michigan and, again, everywhere. One thing I have noticed; there were always Brundages. Loyalist Brundages, Patriot Brundages, Quaker Brundages and so on. The Flewellings are intermingled with the Purdy/Wetmore/Merritt family as well. There was a Gilbert Brundage Flewelling b. ca. 1817 who appears to have been part of the Quaker family in North Castle, Westchester Co., NY who went (I believe) to Indiana. This suggests further Brundage ties, and ties to the Carpenters/Cornells/Haight-Hoyts etc. What you people need is some sort of central repository. Someone who will take on the task of accepting material, co-ordinating it, and writing about it. Perhaps the task could be divided by area and time. You need to do careful research, copy and transcribe census records (as a start), vital statistics, family Bibles, whatever; but it all needs to be gathered in one place. Perhaps several of you could start a newsletter turned out four times a years. If each of you wrote on the results of your serches and published them in the same place, you would begin to find links. If each of you provided competent summaries of your findings (i.e. search the wills in a state and summarize ALL the Brundages) you will help each other save time. Sometimes you have to go to the records, so someone's research in New York could help someone in California who can't get to those documents. Well, like I say, I don't envy your task; but, when it's done, you will have traced a fascinating history. Good luck!
