I am searching for information on Benjamin and/or Jacob Van Vleet. The last name also gets spelled Vanvleet, Vanvliet, Vanfleet, Vleet, etc.
They are in Westfield, Medina Co in the 1830 census. In 1840 they are in Lafayette although one of Benjamin's sons, Gerrit, appears to stay in Westfield.
In the 1850 and 1860 census Benjamin has moved to Wayne Co.
Some time between 1827 and 1842 Benjamin's wife died in either Medina Co or Wayne Co and he married a woman named Sally. Sally died in Wayne Co in 1857. Benjamin died in Wayne Co in 1861.
I am looking for the death of Benjamin's first wife and his marriage to Sally. I am also looking for the graves of the first wife and for Benjamin.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me. I can't believe these people can just disappear!!!
