Our Van Ness line is from New York, Kinderhook was the
home of our Peter Van Ness a N. Y. Attorney then his son
Peter Van Ness who became a Judge. Peter the attorney
built a home in Kinderhook in 1797. The home was eventually left to Peter Van Ness Son, Peter Van Ness
the Judge. The home was much improved by Peter Van Ness
the second and made into a beautiful mansion. When Peter
Van Ness decided to sell the home it was purchased by
Martin Van Buren who had been President. Martin Van Buren
also built onto the home and named the home Linderwald.
Martin Van Buren and the Van Ness family had a history
and later on one of the Van Ness children would be named
Martin Van Buren Van Ness.
Anyone researching this Van Ness family please contact me.
