Sophia Van Antwerp was born in either Montgomery or Herkimer County, New York in 1809. She married Nelson Rulison in 1833.
Mary Rulison was born in 1800 and she married Daniel Van Antwerp in 1834. Mary was Daniel's 2nd wife. He had 5 children with his first wife and 3 with Mary: Lewis, Ruth, and Frances who were born in Michigan.
I have hit a brick wall with Sophia who is my gggrandmother. I don't know if Daniel and Sophia were brother and sister nor do I know the names of their parents. I would appreciate any help which I can get. In my search I wondered if one branch of the Schenectady Van Antwerps went up the Mohawk River to settle in Herkimer or Montgomery County.firstname.lastname@example.org
