Schermerhorn/Becker

My ancestors -- Herbert Schermerhorn and Alice Harris were married in 1876 in Mason City, Cerro Gordo County, Iowa in 1876. They had two children born while there and those children are registered as Schermerhorns. The family is listed on the 1880 Census in Iowa as Schermerhorns. But . . . in 1900 they are in California as Herbert and Alice Becker, with the same children, plus others! Also, Herbert is listed as a Becker in the Ontario 1871 Census with his parents, Lou and Nancy Becker. Oh . . . in the 1880 Census Lou (Louis) and Nancy show up in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa as Schermerhorn as well!!! Does anyone know what may have happened to cause this name change during these years?????

You may want to contact Bonnie Flannery (http://community.ancestry.com/profile.aspx?mba=00df6b56-0002...)

I believe that this is her branch of the Schermerhorn family and she may be able to give you further information about that. My Schermerhorn line comes from Henry P. Schermerhorn whom emigrated from New York State to Iowa in the mid 1800s.
