My Margaret Van Deusen Bloom,married a William Van Valkenburg b.approx.1818 in Columbia County ,New York.I know that there is a bit of a distance in ages,but sometimes families stuck close together back then,so you may want to check out the Van Deusen or Bloom name for your "Mary".
Margaret's first huband was John Bloom.He died in 1866.
William and Margaret married between 1866-1871.
They had three children:
William b.1871
Chester E. b.1875
Margaret b.1878
William evidently was married before.Have no idea what her name was.But he had three children by his first wife.They were:Cynthia A. b.1857
James K. b.1862
Edward L. b.1864
This is all I know about William.If I find out any more info about William,I'll be sure and contact you.Good luck on your research.
Happy Holidays!........Beth Metts
