Van Rensselaer/Klinck - New York

Van Rensselaer/Klinck - New York

Surnames: Van Rensselaer, Klinck, Joslin
I am looking for any information on Elizabeth Van Rensselaer, born April 14, 1816, died March 20, 1890. She was the wife of John B. Klinck. I have records saying that she and John are buried in Boonville in the Joslin Cemetary. I believe they are the parents of George Klinck, who would be my
great great grandfather. George Klinck was married to Orra Joslin. The other children of John and Elizabeth according to the census were Stephen and Joanna (Johanna?) I found them listed in the 1860 Onondaga County census in the first ward, Syracuse.

I'm looking for any info on John and Elizabeth, their children, their
parents, etc. Anything would be great. I am especially interested in finding who the parents of Elizabeth Van Rensselaer were.

I don't know if this will help you. I have a old New York Weekly tribune dated Saturday, April 8, 1848
On the back is the announcement:

Death of Co. Nicholas Van Rensselaer--
Another of the venerable relics of the Revolution has departed, we trust to receive the recompense of thejust and patriotic. Colonel Nicholas Van Rensselaer , a venerable soldier of the Revolution, expired in this city on Wedmesday, in the 94th year of his age Co. Van Rensselaer was with Montgomery at teh storming of Quebec, was at Ticonderoga Fort Miller, Fort Ann, and Bemis's Hights (in two engagements at the latter, ) and was deputed to convey the inteligence of the surrendor of Burgoyne to Albany. What events did he not live to witness in the course of centennial existence! What progress in the history of the great country the liberites of whcih he fought to Establish!
