Hi Sharon, I am looking for my great-grandfather. I saw the listing of buriels in greenwood Cemetary. I have been told by my mother that he was buried there. I think, his name is Issac. My great-grandmothers name was Sarah Kramer, she was from Lockporte, NY. Issac was supposedly killed in the Brooklyn Shipyards about 1860, and she died shortly thereafter leaving three small children. Could you please help me. I have been searching many years to find a link to this family. Thank you so much Sharon for reading this, I appreciate the kindness so much. Margaret

This may be of no value, but I have history and family tree of Paulus Vanderbeck from Amsterdam, Holland. Had arrived to New York in 1623. He had two sons Abraham and Cornelius. Abraham moved to Hackensack, New Jersey, married Sara Akerman. They had two sons, George, and Abraham. This son Abraham took the side of the British in the war of Independance, and was driven from his farm. He, and a cousin Cornelius Akerman came to Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada with the Loyalist in 1783. Scores of very fragile letters to New york and new Jersey Law professionals trying to return to there 100 Acre farm in Hackensack remain in my possession.

My great great great grandfather was named Harmon P. Vanderbeck who died in 1867. I found his death certificate at the NYC Municiapl archives. The death certificate named his buriel site as Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn. When I went there, they did not have him listed. They said he was not buried their. Only after I showed the certificate did they go in the back and within three minutes found the record. The man there then admitted that many of the burials from the 1800s are not listed in their on line directory or on site kiosk as they indicate. Harmon's son John Jacob is also not listed and he died a month before his father! They did tell me that they maintain some vital information; however, you have to send the $22.00 for the plot information and $17.00 for the personal vital statistics of each person in the plot. If you think that this Issac Vanderbeck is your ancestor, you can send away to them. Check out their web site at (or is it .org?).
P.S. If you ever find anything out about a Harmon and Catherine Vanderbeck in NYC/NJ in the 1800's please let me know. Their daughter was Sarah Vanderbeck (my gggrandmother) who married Richard Barnecott.

I'm a descendent of Cornelius Ackerman, cousin of Abraham Vanderbeck. I'm curious to know whether you still have the letters you mentioned ten years ago in your post to (These were letters from Abraham asking for restitution of his property).

I had forgotten about the posting from Jim. I would also love to see the letters or copies of them. My 6th great grandfather was said Paulus Vanderbeck.

Thank you.
