    This Fred David Vorhees does NOT go back to Abraham and Alice Voorhees. They did have a Fred R. born in 1867 also but Frederick David was my great grandmother’s brother and he belongs to simon Peter Voorhees and Margaret Hageman. Simon Peter’s father was John Simonson Voorhees and Phebe Tunison. Many people get the John Simonson Voorhees and the John Stryker Voorhees lines mixed up because they both came to Fairview, Illinois. they do all go back to Coert Van Voorhees however.

    Thanks Mary Jo!

    Any corrected information you have would be great!

    Steve

  • Jim Andrews  On March 14, 2010 at 6:40 am

    Mr. Wainer,
    There were two Frederick Davids – have you confirmed which of the Fred. D. married Hattie Elizabeth Knickerbocker? Frederick son of Abraham or Frederick son of Simon Peter and Margaret/Martha Hagaman, who married 9/29/1864? My G GM is a Voorhees. Please advise, thank you.

    Regards,

    Jim

      Hi Jim,

      Well, to be truthful, I can’t confirm one way or another. The information I had found seemed to point to the Fred D. son of Abraham. Then I got a message from MARY JO SUYDAM WILLIS that said it should be the Fred D. son of Simon Peter. I have no proof either way and I haven’t had a chance to go back and look at that line any further.

      Here’s what Mary Jo sent me:

      “Steve, Elmer is the son of Frederick DAVID and Hattie Knickerbocker but this Frederick is Simon Peter Voorhees’ son. NOT ABRAHAM and ALICE’s son, FRED R.
      Elmer was born 16 Feb 1907 in Ellisville, Illinois and married Bertha Danner, born 16 Mar 1910 and then married a Mrs. Vera jane Walker. Elmer Lee Junior born on Jan 10, 1930 m. Virginia L. King and had Patricia Voorhees, who married Terry Wilson. How are you related to elmer, Sr.?”

      If you have any information. I’d be happy to know about it.

      Steve

Elmer Lee Voorhees Jr. was born on 10. Jan. 1930 at Canton, Fulton County, Illinois. He was the son of Elmer Lee Voorhees Sr. and Bertha M. Danner. Elmer Lee Voorhees Jr. died on 24. Nov. 1988 at Avon, Fulton County, Illinois, at age 58.

      Mary Jo also sent this:

      “I live in Fairview, Illinois. Yes, Abraham and Alice Voorhees had a Fred but not the Fred you have. The Fred you had was Frederick David and he’s my great grandmother’s brother’s boy. The Fred that belongs to Abraham and alice is Fred R. born in 1867 who married a Swigert. My fred was also born in 1867 14 October in ellisville, Fulton county, Illinois. They had Martin L., Peter Beekman, Jennie, Willis and Fred (have pics of them). I belonged to the Van Voorhees society. Then Abraham married again and had Oakford and Alice with his second wife, Martha Hartough. How do Voorhees fit in your line. We are headed back to NJ to do more research. Many people confuse John Simonson Voorhees (my line) with John Stryker Voorhees (another line in Fairview.) Let me know what information you need to correct your genealogy. Simon Peter Voorhees is the son of John Simonson Voorhees. It’s all in the Voorhees book and we ahve many letters, pictures and records to keep the two Freds separate. Sincerely, Mary Jo”

      I guess I need to go back and look at my notes. I had forgotten all about this.

    Sure. I’d be careful of the Voorhees info though. Make sure you read all the comments.
