I am looking for the parents of Mary Van Pelt who married Nicholas Ryder, no dates. Mary and Nicholas had, possibly two children, Marie Louise and Robert. Marie Louise married, in 1776, William Cropsey of Brooklyn, NY. Robert died at the young age of 23. I believe Robert to be the brother of Marie Louise because of a paper I have concerning his death. Marie Louise was born in 1858, NY, and died 1948, Elizabeth City, NC.
