Surnames: schermerhorn, hawver, carl
I'm searching for Elizabeth Schermerhorn, b1817 d1898. She was married to a William Hawver and in 1851 they had a son, Horace D. Hawver, in Prattsville, Greene Co. NY. She is buried in the Schenevus NY cemetary, next to Horace and his wife, and a Mary Hawver, wife of E.L.Carl. I'm trying to trace the Hawver line, but also have interest in Schermerhorn.
Thanks for any help.

Hi June! I will look in my Schermerhorn Genealogy, but the latest person on my Schermerhorn side is Elizabeth, who was born 29 Aug 1799. Unfortunately, I don't know that I can help you, but if I can, I will. Happy new year! I am sure that there is someone out there that can if I can't. Have a good day! Lin

Hello to all Schermerhorn's. My name is Debra Schermerhorn and I am trying to find my grandfathers info. he was Floyd Schermerhorn, born 1894 in Fairmont North Dakota, and married Merle Croson. He died in Montana in 1934. I just cant find any info. Any help?

Hello Debra. Floyd S. Schermerhorn was my Great Grandfather. He died in 1937 in Libby, MT of a heart attack, before I was born. Merle died around 1971. I always thought Merle and Floyd met in Iowa and then moved to North Dakota. I also thought Grandmother's maiden name was Crossin or Crosin, not Croson. Merle was a local celebrity in Libby, had a radio talk show called "Mom's Kitchen". I still miss her!

Surnames: Schermerhorn, Hawver, Johnson,
I'm thinking that Elizabeth may have been a widow of William Hawver, then married Casper/Jasper Schermerhorn. The Schermerhorn genealogy referred to her as "MRS." Elizabeth Hawver. I aslo found a William Hawver buried at the Deyoe cemetery in Lexington. On the 1865 census Elizabeth was married 2 times.
