My 2nd great aunt Sophia Eckerson born 1848 in Old Tappan, Bergen Co, NJ married John S Wortendyke in 1871. I am looking for the identity of his parents. He was born June 1847 in NJ, and lived in Brooklyn NY, Delford NJ and Oklahoma. He was a butcher and later ran a hotel.
Elsewhere in my tree I have a Fredrick Wortendyke and Eliza A (don't know maiden name). They had a son John S in 1847 then she died, and John isn't in any future census with Fredrick. I am thinking they could be the same person, but don't have enough info to merge the 2 permanently.
