I've been researching the family of John J Schermerhorn who was born about 1800, NY and died about 1859 in Grant Co, WI. I think his sister is Hannah Schermerhorn b. 1803, NY who married William Danford Verley.
Here is the proposed lineage:
Jacob Janse SCHERMERHORN b. 1622, Holland; d. abt 1688, Schenectady, NY; m. Janetie EGMONT (daughter of Cornelis Segerse VAN EGMONT and Brechje JACOBSEN) b. abt 1633, Holland.
Ryer J SCHERMERHORN b.23 Jun 1652, NY; d. 19 Feb 1919; m. Jul 1676 Ariantje Arentse BRADT (daughter of Arent Arentse BRADT and Catalyntje VOS) d. 1717.
Jan SCHERMERHORN b.14 Oct 1685, Albany, NY; d. 1752; m. 28 Apr 1711 Engletie VROOMAN (daughter of Jan Hendrickse VROOMAN and Giesie VEEDER) b.22 Dec 1695; d. 1754.
Johannes SCHERMERHORN b.24 Nov 1720, Schenectady, NY; d. 1781; m. 2 Mar 1745, Schenectady, NY Eva VAN PETTEN (daughter of Nicholas VAN PETTEN and Rebecca GROOT) b.24 Sep 1719.
Johannes SCHERMERHORN b.20 Oct 1745, Schenectady, NY; m. Annatje _____.
John J (Johannes) SCHERMERHORN b.30 Sep 1773, Pompton, NJ; m. Katharine GOODCOURAGE.
John J SCHAMERHORN b. abt 1800, NY; d. abt 1859, Grant Co, WI; m. Caroline ______ b. abt 1804, NY.
Hannah SCHERMERHORN b. abt 1803, NY; m. abt 1820 William Danford VERLEY b. abt 1803, NY.
I think that John J Schermerhorn b. 1773 is the John Schermerhorn in the 1830 census of Manlius, Onondagao Co, NY and the 1810 and 1820 censuses of Charlton, Saratago Co, NY.
