My great grandmother's death cert. Martha Lodema Schermerhorn Morse born Watertown, NY listed her father as Cornelius Schermerhorn.from Holland..there are so many listed with this name Does anyone know of a passenger ship listing from Holland to Watertown NY? I can not find his death listing in NY either. Any links would be helpful

What was her date of death? Most Schermerhorns descend from Jacob Janse, immigrant 1664 from Holland. She sounds like her father must have come much more recently than that! So the date would help a lot in determining whether she is part of the earlier family or not.

Try Findagrave.com for either her grave or his.

And try Olivetree.com for ships lists, if you haven't already, in addition to Rootswebs' list--I can't recall exactly the URL, but if you go to the message board and look under "other" you should find it.

Good luck,
Doris
