I am searching for any information on Hermanus JORKS (JURCKSE, YORKS, YORCKSEN) born in Rockland Co. 29 Dec 1726 (RDC Tappan) to Jacobus JURCKZE/ YORCKSEN and Elizabeth COURTEN (widow of Ary CROM).
Hermanus married about 1750 to a Jannetje [?]. I believe that Hermanus and Jannetje lived in Haverstraw before moving to Wallkill in Orange County.
Any information on the siblings of Hermanus, his marriage, or his children would be greatly appreciated. I believe that he had at least two sons, Johannes and Hermann born in Wallkill, but he probably had more children born earlier than these two.
