Hello Cousin----about tenth cousins I would guess. I copied just the outline on your direct ancestors. This book is available through LDS(the Family History Center-Mormans), they will make a copy of it for you and you should really get it, because it has all the brothers and sisters of your ancestors. The name of the book is “Ackerson/Eckerson Family in America” by Ethel Konight Kolenut
p. 76: Jan Eckerson b. May 4 bp June 24 1769 At Tappan, son of Gerret Eckerson and Dirckje Springsteen
Jan married 2nd wife Elizabeth Dill:
One of seven children:
Margaretta, b. April 14, 1799 b. Feb. 23, 1800 (Kak #637)
p. 44 Gerret Eckerson b. Feb. 24 and BP Narch 27 1743 at Tappan son of Jan Eckerson and Geesje Straut Gerret was Captain in Col. Ann Kawke Hay’s regiment, New York during the Rev . War. He made his will as Garret Ackerson.

Go to my Web page and see Swits Surname for the rest of your ancestors. Loads of history on these folks.
Now with these surnames you might be able to put some of them into search engines and come up with some closer cousins web pages.
