Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since the late '70s, when a cousin showed me an old genealogy, "The Descend- ants of William Wood" in which my late grandmother was mentioned. I like this site and have made an effort to try to locate all the ancestor graves I can. I'm always available to take grave photos in the Twin City area.

Aert Teunison Middagh is NOT a child of Sarah Rapalje or Teunis Gysbertse Bogaert
Ken-----Aert Teuniszen Middagh is listed on page 82 of The BERGEN family: the descendants of Hans Bergen. He is listed as a child of Jan AERTSEN Middagh of the ferrry (see last few lines of page 81, and then children listed page 82). Jan Aertsen signed his name AERSEN. In this Bergen book, it says Jan Aertsen Middagh was the son of Rebecca Bergen and Aert Anthonize Middagh. You would have to do further research on this i guess.
I think the confusion is that Aert Anthonisze Middagh that married Rebecca Bergen also is written about as Aert Tuniszen Middagh.
Tuniszen or Teunison as a middle name just shows what the father of this person's first name was.
Teunis means Anthony in Dutch.
The Middagh family is NOT related to the Bogaert family. They are from Rebecca Bergen, the daughter of Sarah Rapalje and FIRST husband Hans Bergen.

Teuis Gysbertzen Middagh is NOT Teunis Gysbertse Bogaert
Dear Ken -------Teunis Gysbertzen Middagh is NOT the same person as Teunis Gysbertse Bogaert, who is my ancestor. Please take off the last name Middagh if you are attaching to Sarah Rapalje born 1625-died 1685, daughter of Joris Rapalje and Catalina Trico

Brecktje Bergen, daughter of Sarah Rapalje and her first husband Hans Bergen married Aert Anthonize Middagh, the ancestor of the Middagh family in Brooklyn. Please see page 81 of "The Bergen Family: The descendants of Hans Bergen"

Sarah Rapalje, born June 9, 1625 and died 1685 in Bushwick NY only had 2 marriages -----
1st marriage to Hans Bergen-these children used the name BERGEN
2nd marriage to Teunis Gysbertse BOGAERT
all the children including my ancestor Catalyntje Bogaert born 1657, had the last name of BOGAERT.

Marlene Chaney
Mercy Lawrence
Received your Find A Grave suggestion: Marlene, I have added memorials for the parents of Experience. Would you please link her to William Baker 114502159 and Mercy Lawrence 117821219.

I have linked Experiance to her parents as you requested. However, in looking at my tree record I see I have Mercy Pierce as the mother of Experiance Baker. Am I on the wrong path? I got her surname through LDS.

If you have more source information that confirms her surname as Lawrence I would like to correct my file. I don't like posting incorrect information - it multiples too fast. My email is

Thank you.

Just a heads up this memorial is a duplicate of the same person as #22546526. Also the pictures attached to this #63073728 are incorrect. They are actually for the gravestone of another Joseph Meriam #22551350. Hope I didn't confuse you. Thanks David.

Yoder/ Yorde
Thank you for the info. on Elizabeth I added part of it to her memorial. I am a descendant of Samuel and Elizabeth Pletcher. My line goes Samuel, David, Samuel, Josiah, Arthur Webster, Forrest Arthur, Arthur Eugene (my dad), and me Daniel Forrest. How does your wife's line go? I do have a copy of Ulrich Yoder's will, But I didn't really want to add a will to a memorial, but it is very good for genealogical reasons. Thanks again, and let me know if you have any other questions on either the Yoder or Pletcher families.
