Re: Van Gelder Bible
I have in hand my Van Gelder Tree traced back to Henry Van Gelder, b Oct 1, 1776, married to Abigail Loundsberry, b 1782, living in Vernon, Sussex Co. NJ. He was my 4th Great Grandfather.Henry had brothers Cornelius, Tobias & William.Third Great Grandfather is Jonathan, b. 1799, married to Polly Clark, 1817.Second Great Grandfather is Benjamin Franklin Van Gelder, b. 1824, married to Lucy Evelyn Look, Jan. 1845.(She is daughter of Benjamin Franklin Look, d. Mar. 1877 - a descendant of THE Benjamin Franklin).Second great grandfather is E. Clinton Van Gelder, b. 1846, married to JuliaAnn Jacobus, Oct. 1867.Grandfather is Frank Van Gelder, b. 1875. Father is Clifford Frank Van Gelder, b. 1902.All of the above Van Gelders are buried around Bath, NY, where I grew up.Would like to go further back than 1776 if anyone can help.Thank you!
