I am looking for anyone who can tell me if Chauncy Depew is in your family tree to. He's as far back as i can go. His family landed in New York, and Chauncy was a rail road executive and lawyer. And it looks as though there are more Depews out there than i thought so there has got to be some conection some where. Thanks for your time.

As far as I can tell there were two maybe three sets of Depews who arrived on this continent around the same period. Chaunceys family arrived in the New York area. One group (which may or may not have been from Chaunceys family) was loyal to the British and moved to Canada. My branch was started by John Depew, son of Walter(Gualtier in French) who left England and resided in NJ and then Virginia. I have two of Chauncey's books and have been looking for a connection to our family for a couple of years.

Roger,
I have Depew ancestors who lived in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Harry Depew married Gertrude Bell. They had 3 children - 2 daughters and a son, Charles. Time frame was mid 1850 to 1900.

Can you share any information about the Depews in Canada??
Thanks
Jean

My Great-Grandmother was Blanche Depew who married Simon Finneus Boomer. I know nothing of her family, except that she is from Ontario and raised her family there. Her children were all born in the area of 1915- 1922. Do you think these families are connected?

Eryne,
I do not have a Blanche Depew or a Simon Boomer in my Depew group. Where in Ontario did Blanche live? My group was in the Hamilton, Stoney Creek area in Ontario.

Hi Jean,
Blanche Depew was born in Buffalo in 1896, and her children with Simon Finneus Bommer were born in Hamilton and Tetterville. I have virtually no other information.

Eryne,
Thanks for the info. I will continue my research to determine if there is a tie between Blanche Depew and my Depew family in Hamilton. There is a close relationship between my family in Buffalo and the Depews of Hamilton. I just do not have all the names in order yet. Will keep you posted if I locate that link!

Also, please note, I have a change of e-mail address (now jmemers@attbi.com).
Thanks
Jean

Hi Jean,
I think there must be a strong relation somewhere as well. I just found another tid-bit of information that might be useful to you: Blanche's first name may in fact be Margaret (or else this is her middle name). Her son Ted Ion Boomer was born in Hamilton June 27, 1917.

While I was doing research in Buffalo last summer, I noticed what seems to be at least 2 unrelated Depew lines.

Unless either of you can tell me how these other Depews link in with Senator Chauncey's family.... I could not see a connection between his brother's family and any others.
