Alexander Van Tuyl 1802-1881, son of Walter and Elizabeth (Graham) Van Tuyl married 1st about 1823 Margaret Writer. She was the daughter of Aaron K. and Elizabeth (McKeeby) Writer. I have three children listed: Aaron born 1831,John born 1832, Walter born 1837.
It seems like a long time between the marriage and the 1st child. Were there others?
Alexander married 2nd Esther Avery 15 June 1849. When and where did Margaret die? What became of these children. I scouted South Eaton cemetery but found none of the Van Tuyl family.
