Looking for the ancestry of John P. Moore, born in New York City in 1799. He married Elisa Jane Vanderpool in 1820. Any info, please. I believe the P. might stand for Phionis.

hello peter,my name is kathy.i just read your message.hmm... we may have a connection,maybe could be a case of so close,yet so far isabella,born july 1832 in glasgow scotland,did indeed have a brother peter.i believe his middle name may have been crow.peter was born 1827/28 in scotland also.isabella had a second brother,duncan.duncan was born feb 1830 in glasgow scotland.duncan later married someone named carrie after coming to america.their parents were paul macphail born approx 1804 in scotland and isabella henderson born glasgow scotland.paul and isabella married 30 dec 1825 in barony,lanark,scotland.he died approx 1832/34. she died 1856/57. i'm not sure that your peter is the brother of my isabella. it was said that peter must have died young,as it was felt that when isabella henderson macphail came to america,she brought only duncan and isabella.was peter alive,or is it possible that your peter and isabella are children of a later generation?maybe of duncan?i look forward to hearing from you. kathy

My great grandfather Peter MacPhail had a sister Isabella
but I'm not certain who she married. Do you have any other
MacPhail info?

Thanks so much for the reply you posted. I think we may
have to go further back in time to make a connection to the
two branches of the family. The Peter MacPhail in my line
did have an Isabella as a little sister and at least one
Duncan possibly two as brothers (one may have died at a
young age so that they named a subsequent son Duncan.
Peter was born in 1843 and came over the this country
in 1881 on the steamship Gallia (Cunard). I'm not sure
how many of his brothers and sisters stayed in Scotland
or came over to this country. If I can find any info that
may link the two branches together I'll pass it along. A
lot of the info I've found quite useful has come from
the site Hope this info is of some value
to you. Thanks again

i have absolutely no idea where they were from.vanvelzen is actually the name of a man who married into the family.i have been unable to get much info past my gr grandmother, so i thought i would also post her siblings(and spouses)names.i thought that if i found a descendant of my gr aunt,they might share,here goes....elias or albert van velzen was married to my great aunt matilda(tillie)jacobi(y).i do not know when he was born or died,but she was born in 1879 or 1880.she died after 1932.i know that she lived in NYC as a child and i don't think she strayed far as an adult.they had at least one child,julius.he went by the nickname jules as a child,and though he filled out his first name as julius on his social security card application,he signed it jack velzen.he listed van as his middle name.he was born 22 jan 1904 in NYC.his home address was 72 east 121st st.,NYC and he worked at schaffner bros.,at 1270 broadway,NYC.does any of this connect?take care. kathy

Hello, You wrote that your husband's family is from Zoest. The right spelling of that town is Soest.It is in the middle of Holland,and we have been living there until last spring.My husband's grandmother maiden name is also van Velzen/Velsen. So if you have any information that could lead to a connection in our familytree, please let me know.
