Re: Looking for Johannis Jansen / NY -descendents
Hi, Van.I don't know whether my family connects with the one you are describing, but I am very impressed with what you posted.
According to records of the "Old Dutch Church" in Kingston, Ulster, New York, my great great grandfather was baptised there in March, 1829.His name was Robert James Baggs, and his parents were listed as John Baggs and Maria Jansen.
Maria was also known as Maria Johnston, which is on her death records.She was born March 24, 1805 and died February 23, 1886.She is buried in the Wiltwyck Cemetery in Kingston, as is her son, Robert.For a time, she may have lived in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Can you tie her into your Jansen family?I would be forever greatful!!!
