VAN DUSEN/DEUZEN/DEUSEN, etc. I'm looking for information on ancestors of Stephen Mack Van Dusen (spelling can vary) (1810-1869). Family history says he was born in Davenport, Delaware County and died in Union, Broome County. Am also looking for ancestors of his wife's grandfather, Stephen MACK, who was reported to have been a judge in Owego, Tioga County. I have no dates on him. I would welcome any information. I can be reached at kkean@ix.netcom.com.

I am searching for a birth record for John Albert MUSSULMAN, born in Cayuga Co, NY (I don't know what city or township), in 1824. His parents are Tobias Mussulman and Susanna SNYDER, who I am also interested in finding information on. It appears Susanna died in NY (maybe Tioga Co) before 1843 because Tobias married an Arminda JOHNSON-GODFREY (daughter of Samual and Anna Johnson) and their first child was born in 1843. John's sibling's are Stephen, Margaret, Susan, and Jacob. Any help would be appreciated.

Three TRYON families were living in Coxsackie during the last half of the 1700's - Benjamin, Petrus and Jochum according to census records and records of the Dutch Reform Church of Coxsackie. (I suspect Benjamin, Peter and John were the English equivalents). John's wife was Catherina Van SLYCK. Peter's wife was Rachel DEDERICK and Benjamin's wife was Magtel (maiden name unk). Any info you could supply on the connection between these three men would be appreciated. Benjamin Tryon removed from Greene Co to Tioga/Tompkins Co. NY and eventually settled in MI with a wife named Mercy. However, I think she is his 2nd wife. Any info on Benjamin Jr's wives would also be appreciated. Thank you. Vicki Titus
