I'm new to Mocavo but I am a Van Hoesen, my father was Vincent J. Van Hoesen, my grandfather was Daniel H. Van Hoesen b. abt 1851 +/- 1, his father was Daniel Van Hoesen b. abt 1812 +/- 1, married to Sarah E. Van Hoesen. I am assuming she's an Elliott as there is a census record having another Elliott (female) living with them, slightly younger than Sarah. Both Daniels are listed as carpenters which helps differentiate them from the Van Hoesen farmers. Both Daniel's are living in Greene County in 1850.
I am stuck on 1812 Daniel's father. Once I break that, there seems to be enough documentation on Van Hoesen's past that to make my way back.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Paul Van Hoesen firstname.lastname@example.org
