Henry Stothoff
Hi Joanne,

Can you please change the date of birth to 1784 instead of 1754. If he died in 1852 in his 68th year, then it should read 1784 which makes more sense to me, for then this would be my ancestor for sure. His father-in-law and mother-in-law are just down from his gravesite. Peter G. Voorhees and Mary Boice. Henry's wife's grave marker has probably been lost to time. Her name was Sarah Voorhees.

Henry Stothoof
You threw me off by entering the date of birth as 1754. I see you stated that he was in his 68th year when he died, so if you subtract 68 from 1852 you would come up with 1784 instead of 1754. THEN, this would be my Henry Stothoff if he was actually born in 1784, and his daughter would be Catherine Elsie Stothoff and his wife would be Sarah Voorhees.

Henry Stothoff
After reviewing my records on Henry Stothoff it has been determined that this Henry Stothoff is not the same Henry Stothoff you have listed as the father of Catherine Stothoff Chamberlin. Your Henry was born in 1754 and my Henry in 1785. Please remove Catherine as his daughter in your posting.

My Henry's father was Johannes Gerrit Stothoff who was born in 1751 and was a Revolutionary War Patriot. Sorry for misleading you on this connection, previously.

Ref: Elsie Onderdonk Stothoff
I lead you in the wrong direction by stating that Elsie Onderdonk was the wife of Henry Stothoff. She was actually the mother of Henry and the wife of Johannes Gerrit Stothoff, Henry's father. Henry's wife was Sarah Voorhees who's parents were Peter G. Voorhees and Mary Boice also buried in that same cemetery. So, now you know the whole story.

Ref: Henry Stothoff
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just entered Henry Stothoff in as a search and came up with your entry for him. I have been searching for his gravesite for years. The birth year is right on the money. I have been to the old Middlebush Cemetery when I was looking for Peter G. Voorhees and his wife Mary Boice. I did find them.

Henry Stothoff and Elsie Onderdonk, his wife, were the parents the parents of Catherine Elsie Stothoff Chamberlin. Catherine was the wife of Jonathan H. Chamberlin. Go to FindAGrave and put in either of their names and you will see my listing. That unreadable stone you found in the Middlebush Cemetery was that of Elsie Onderdonk Chamberlin. She was baptized 10 Mar 1751 in New Brunswick, NJ. So now I know where they lived and can now look for more information about Henry. Thank you again.
