Fantastic!What very exciting finds!Fifer.Interesting that your William was born in Ohio but enlisted in New York.I wonder if he was a bigamist or what the whole story is.
I'd love to know anything about my E. R. Vredenburgh of the Republic of Texas.I thought I found him in Huron Co, OH, but Edward R. Vredenburgh of Norwalk (Peru), OH died in 1838 so can't be my Texas relative who was very much alive in 1843-1845.I don't know if the Ohio Edward Rosier Vredenburgh had any children or heirs.He was 30 when he died.
Just so there is no confusion for people reading this board, I want to clarify that Mary Ann Vredenburgh of Ohio is not Mary Ann Courtney.She is Mary Ann Schuyler, born July 27, 1800 in Albany, NY.Died November 14, 1881.She was the wife of John Varick Vredenburgh, born Feb 5, 1802 in Long Island, NY and died December 28, 1890 in Norwalk, OH.They married December 4, 1825 and lived in Ohio from at least 1826 until their deaths.You can find them in every census.He was a shop owner and very involved in local politics and civic programs.His parents were William John Vredenburgh & his second wife Mary Rozier.
It is Mary Rozier Vredenburgh who is the Mary of the lawsuit, Mary of New York.She is suing her son or step-son, William T. Vredenburgh who was married to Narcissa Dascomb.William T. died before 1850 and his wife Narcissa spent the rest of her years in Castleton, Richmond Co, NY.They only had 2 children.Their one son William is accounted for.
John who was living next door to John V. & Mary Ann Schuyler is their son, born May 19, 1831.His wife is Emma Miller.They were married on January 6, 1868.
I'll let you know if I ever discover the identity of my E. R.I am convinced he and your William are related.
