Hi I just might have some of it wrong? I am from Henry Van Steenburg side and we are from N.Y I was told that the name was changed to Steenwerth had something to do with an argument over ? and something to do with NYC and the english? between Pierre and Henry both being brothers Pierre took off south and Henry stayed in NY. I had found a lady in Philly? Penn? in 2000 named Fox and she is descended from Pierre and she was told the same about an argument between the 2 brothers. Be great to get some help couz me and my sister have been at it for many years and we got a lot on the leach side spoor side. The reason I say from savanah is that a lot of people from Moravia came in that way and headed north to now NY and then out to the west..Moravia? is were we stem from? on grandma Steenwerth's side. and her maiden name was Leach and her mom was Spoor, and the list is enormous on relatives...It's like when I met a relative on my mom's side The spelling of the last name was the same as each other but he was mad a my grandfather his cousin so he swore they were not related..But I am a u cuz LOL yeah family very funny people when they get mad at each other!!!!!! I was born in westchester NY just down the street from the old dutch church in N Tarrytown which is also Sleepyhollow philips manor etc van cortlandt's we are a very big family.. and for some reason the name change? from Van Steenburg to ? seems to be secretive for some reason?
