Van Deusen Family Genealogy Forum
Thanks for your reply. James H. was my mother's great-grandfather so I have a copy of his death certificate. He was born Nov. 1821 in Olean, NY and died 1903 in Jamestown,NY. He is buried in Cherry Hill Cemetery, Sugar Grove, Pa. Our problem is we cannot find anything about his wife, Elizabeth VanDyke. According to his death certificate she was born in Schoharie county.NY about 1825. That is all I have come up with. We know the VanDusens, Joshua and James made trips to Grimsby. Canada, apparently with the Underground railroad. There are VanDykes in Canada and Buffalo and wonder if they met in Canada. I am hoping someone would have info on Elizabeth. I appreciate hearing from you and thanks for the tips!! Mary
