Van Ness still farming in NJ
Posted by: James Van Ness (ID *****4595) Date: April 24, 2007 at 20:31:51
  of 805

My name is James Van Ness. I am putting together my family tree. My father is an 8th or 9th generation farmer in Towaco, NJ (part of Montville Twp. about 5-8 miles from the Fairfield Van Ness house) I have been told that we are direct decendants of Simon Van Ness. I have 2 fractur's in our house dating back through the 1700's. I have so far traced my family tree back to Jane Caroline Dixon (born 9/16/1816) and Abraham Van Ness (born 12/2/1818) If anyone has any info to share it would be great. I will be posting pictures of the fracturs, the Towaco farm house my family still lives in, and the Fairfield Van Ness house.
