Saw your 2003 post in regard to Fones West and Margaret Erkenbrack.
I am wondering if you have discovered any information on Margaret's parents and siblings? Could her brothers have been Abram / Abraham and John Erkenbrack? Abram was born ca. 1811 and John ca. 1808.
Abram / Abraham, John and James/Jems and an older man named Philip were all in Troy, Rensselaer Co., NY in 1830. Abram bought land in Wisconsin in 1840 but moved back to New York shortly there after.
Would be most interested in discussing the family with you.
