May I make a suggestion? You didn't include any dates for John. Is he living, or an ancestor? Do you know when or where he was born? Have you found him on a census record? Without dates I'm not sure these are yours, hope I didn't waste my time, but Vanderburg isn't too common and certainly Q. isn't common for a middle initial. Here's hoping this helps you. Have fun.

1920 census Hardin Co, TX:

Vanderburg, John Q., h, 26, md, b TX, TX, TX
" Manola H., wf, 22, md, b TX, OH, TX
" Coper[sic] T., brother, 29, sgle, b TX
" Ercell, brother, 22, sgle, b TX

1910 census Tyler Co, TX:

Vanderburg, John Q., h, b Sep 1846, 53, m 23 yrs, b MS, NY, MS
" Ida S., wf, b Feb 1859, 41, m 23 yrs, 9 ch, 9 lvg, b TX, CT, MS
" Edgar L., s, b Oct 1877, 22, sgle, b MS
" Willie, J., s, b Oct 1881, 18, b MS
" Allen C., s, b Aug 1883, 16, b MS
" Ethel J., d, b Octg 1885, 14, b MS
" Thomas C., s, b June 1888, 11, b MS [Cooper 1910 & 20 cen]
" John Q., Jr., s, b Jul 1892, 7, b MS
" Joseph E., s, b Qug 1894, 5, b MS [Ercell 1910 & 20 cen]
" Louise E., d, b Nov 1897, b MS

On 1910 census Ida is a widow in Hardin Co, TX with some of her children still at home.

TX Dth Idx thru 1976, this gives you maiden name for Ida:

Name: Ida Vanderburg
Death Date: 14 Mar 1919
Death Place: Galveston, Galveston, Texas
Gender: Female
Death Age: 60 years
Estimated Birth Date: 1859
Birth Date:

Father's Birthplace:
Mother's Name: A. Scott
Mother's Birthplace:

Digital Film Number: 4143944
Image Number: 1015
Reference Number: certificate #10075
Collection: Texas Deaths, 1890-1976

1880 census Tyler Co, TX, you can tell birth location for children listed on the 1900 census wasn't MS, but should have been TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

John Q. VANDERBURG Self M Male W 28 MS. Farmer NY. ---
Ida. VANDERBURG Wife M Female W 20 TX. Keeping House MS. CT.
Edgar VANDERBURG Son S Male W 2 TX. MS. TX.
Isora VANDERBURG Dau S Female W 4M TX. MS. TX.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- Type in Vanderburg, John, b 1846 + or - five years, spouse Ida. Someone else is working on this line and has more.

Interesting the submitter shows John (Sr) lived until 1927 and died in MS, but on the 1910 census Ida is listed as a widow. Could it be they were divorced? Years ago women didn't like to be tagged as divorced and would say they were a widow, I've seen it more than once. Anyway, you can share her death record with that submitter who doesn't have name for Ida's mother, it's on her DC.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
