I am descended from Katharine Romeyn m. Caleb Beck 1790 in Albany, NY (son of Eliz Truuax
Kate was dau. of REv'd Dirck (Theodric) Romeyn of Albany who founded Union College and was Pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church there. I believe there is information in the Libraries and Musseum of Arts in Albany about him. Kate Romeyn had a brother John who lived in New York City I believe and either he or another John Bodhead Romeyn wrote a History of New York State. Dirck Romeyn's wife was Elizabeth Brodhead. Try other URL's. I will check my file . Somewhere I found something about the R. Family. Also check STate of NY genm page at Roots WEb and of course the one here at FAmily History. Pls e-mail me at Archbold@idirect.com
and I will forward what info I can find and will ask cousins. We still use the Romeyn name in our Beck family line.
