Searching for anyone who has information on my Ggrandmother who grew up in Rockland County, married David Atchison and had twin boys and a daughter. I have found the family tree which is extensive, but am interested in any other information which may be there.

Hello, I am working on a desecrated cemetery with the help family members of the Phillips/Knapp who are rebuilding it. There is a Sally Onderdonk buried in the cemetery. She was the wife of John Odell. Sally died on Oct 3, 1847. Aged 66.8.20. So she must have been born in or around 1781. Any help to know her more would be greatly apprciated.

Vickie, sorry to take so long, on vacation, holidays, sm operation, seem like no time anymore. well might have found your sally. going thru the onderdonk book i noticed many sarahs were also called sally. have two for you. James Onderdonk 1752-1806 had a daughter Sarah b/ 14 jan 1782 who married a johnathan odell 11 sept 1805 at kakiat and had two children, Rachel and charles(no dates) but were born in haverstraw, n.y.. This sounds like the correct one.. the other shows up on ancestry.com. I looked john and found a john jacob odell b/ 1806 in haverstraw, who died there in 1850, he married a sarah sally ann rose_________ no maiden. thats the only other one i could find. i think the first one is your sally. you might also check on Dutch Door Genealogy.com a web site for rockland county. hope i could help, she sounds like a distant cousin of mind Thanks///Doug

Thanks for the Onderdonk info.
I ,too, have been busy and will not have a moment to review this info until I meet with another relative.

My Dad, 95, is getting out of the hospital on this Tuesday so I am jammed with nursing care in the future.

Hope you recoup from your operation fine.

Cemetery dedicated to veterans advocate
By DANA NAIM
SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL NEWS - Rockland county, NY
(Original publication: January 3, 2005)
An outspoken patriot and active recruiter who drafted many young men to serve in the Vietnam War, Garry Onderdonk was both loved and hated.
Anti-war protesters frequently picketed his house, calling him a murderer and a walking symbol of the war. At the same time, others saw him as a devoted man who volunteered in countless organizations and a respectable member of the community.
For his commitment to war veterans and to Rockland County, the Garry Onderdonk Veterans Cemetery at Rockland Community College in Ramapo was named in his honor.
Onderdonk headed the Rockland County draft board for 28 years until his retirement in 1971 at the age of 75, said Jerry Donnellan, director of the county Veterans Services Department.
"As a member of the draft board, he wasn't necessarily popular," he said. "But he did a lot of good work for the community."
Anthony Lombardi, the county veterans burial commissioner, said Onderdonk drafted him to fight in the Vietnam War.
"He drafted many of us," Lombardi recalled. "But you had no choice. Your country called you, you went, and that's part of being an American."
He said that although he never resented Onderdonk, he remembers how much his peers despised him.
"Back in Vietnam, they're going to blame the person they see," Lombardi said. "Garry was very fair and did an excellent job. He was well-respected and cared about the youth in Rockland County."
The cemetery, one of two veterans burial grounds in the county, was dedicated to Onderdonk on Nov. 14, 1982, Lombardi said. The other cemetery is the Frederick Loescher Veterans Memorial Cemetery in New Hempstead.
Onderdonk didn't necessarily enjoy his job as head of the draft board. He was known to tell people he never liked the idea of sending young men to war, but the unpleasant job had to be done.
And that's why he had many opponents, Lombardi said. "When you believe strongly in your country, you serve what your country asks you to do," he said. "For that he can win few friends."
Onderdonk also worked as a stockbroker on Wall Street and organized the Civil Defense Administration during World War II.
He also started the American Legion Brigade, which trained more than 2,500 young men before heading off to war, and founded the American Legion Moscarella Post 199 in Spring Valley.
At 17, Onderdonk joined the Navy during World War I, then transferred to the Marines. His family roots in this country go back to Adries Onderdonk, who came from Holland in 1672. The Onderdonk family settled in what was to become Rockland County in 1762. The family owned land in Piermont and Nyack. Their original house on Piermont Avenue in Piermont still exists, said genealogist Mary Ann Smith. Onderdonk Road in Wesley Hills is named for the family.
Garry Onderdonk, who was born in Nyack and died in Spring Valley in 1981 at 84, was the eighth generation in the county.
"Outside of my family and my wife, the nearest thing to me is my country," he said, according to a Journal News article from 1972. "Ninety percent of the other countries in the world are jealous of what we have here. That's why we'll always have war."

I agree with Douglass on the identity of your Sally Onderdonk. I don't know where I found it--for some reason it isn't documented--but I have her "buried Family Plot recorded by Maude and Gertrude Conklin. Partial listing. On a bend on Birch Drive just off of Calls Hollow Road, Stony Point, NY. Behind Private house." I have her, Sarah Onderdonk, born 14 January 1782 and died 4 October 1847 and married to Jonathan Odell. She is a first cousin 6 times removed.

This is where I found the information ...

http://www.interment.net/data/us/ny/rockland/unknown_family2...

and it certainly looks like the cemetery you are talking about.

I don't recognize anyone else in the cemetery, but I've never worked this particular branch of the family very hard.

I have a scan of family records in the Onderdonk-Van Houten bible and it includes the birth of her father, Jacobus Onderdonk. Her mother was Rachel Palmer. Her grandparents were Andries Onderdonk and Willemyntie Van Houten.

Hello,
Yes, I know where the Birch Drive Phillips/Knapp Cemetery is. I am working, with others, on restoring it. Do you want some photos of the cemetery? Maybe you live in NY and have been to the cemtery. I am a Knapp decendent.
