Hi all,

I'm looking for information for Garrett van Vranken, born about 1815, I think in New York. He married Emily Higbee on 9 Jan 1842 in Berrien County, Michigan, and died 19 August 1877 in Bainbridge, Berrien, Michigan. I know of 9 children for Garrett and Emily (all born in Berrien County, MI)- James H, Urias, David, Mary Ellen, Emily, Caroline, Garrett, Norah, and Lissa.

I don't know who his parents are; the only info I have is that his mother died when he was about 3 and he was raised by an English family. I think his family is Dutch, but I don't know any more than that. I'd appreciate any information you could share!
