Hi, My wife and I are researching the Schuh (Shuh) Family that lives in Clarkstown in 1880. As per the 1880 federal census, Peter Shuh was born around 1822 in France, his wife Elizabeth was born in 1823 in Maryland, and their sons, James and William, were born in New York. In the 1900 census, James Schuh (my great grandfather) was living in Rockland Lake, Clarkstown, with his wife Frances, and his daughters, Elizabeth (my grandmother) and Helen.

James and his family moved to Bergen County, New Jersey sometime before 1905. Also, James's mother, Elizabeth was living with James and his family in Bergen County, New Jersey in 1905 and was a widow.

We think Peter and Elizabeth are buried in the Rockland Cemetery in Sparkill as there are two burials there on Find a Grave that seem likely to be the same people.

Does anyone have any information about this family or suggestions on where to look further?
