In Reply to: I am looking for my family history by Barbara J. VanDemark of 109

The VanDeMark's were not thrown out of the Netherlands. Thomas and his brother, who's name I cannot recall at this time... came on a ship to America as very young men--- VDM's were royalty and descended from the House of Orange ( William , King of Orange ) I do not have all my family history with me at this time...it could be a year or so before I can access it--- it is being stored elsewhere ---- (( my grandfather- born in the 1880's in Kansas was the son of Charles VDM who moved to Kansas ( from New York )to start a bank on the Pony Express Line.--- ))--brother of my grandfather did extensive research and even went (physically ) back to the Netherlands to do our reseach--it is a wonderful heritage--
