Sorry that this is a County wide query, but that is all the information that I have.

Looking for Wormer or Van Wormer settlers in Lorain Co., OH . They arrived there in 1823. Lawrence Wormer b. abt 1753 probably in Lee, MA. Keshe Houck was his wife. They had 9 children, but I don't know if they also moved to OH from Lee, MA. Looking for a family Bible or other references.

Thanks for your help.

Sincerely, Joan Day Raymont

Thank you, J, for the information........I'm sure, regardless of the spelling different, that these are the Wormer's that I am looking for. I had some of the same information on them.

Where were they located ? Were the 8 children of Jeremiah & Keshe (Geesje) Wormer in Lorain Co. ?

Reason for my research: Jeremiah Wormer had a brother Aaron Wormer of whom I am a descendent. Aaron's daughter was Electa Wormer (husband, John Day). John & Electa Wormer Day were my Great, Great, Great Grandparents. I need more information on John Day. I believe that perhaps John's father was John Day Gouch of the Rev. War and that he dropped the Gouch (last name). I believe he also would then have been of Dutch descent.
Any thoughts on that ?

THOSE ARE THE ONLY CHILDREN I SAW. AND I MAY BE WRONG BUT I THINK IT WAS LORAIN. I WILL CHECK AGAIN.
I WILL SEE IF I CAN FIND ANYTHING ON YOUR JOHN DAY GOUCH.

Surnames: van Wormer, van Schaick, Vallet
A microfilm at the NY State Library in Albany (929.2 V1869 j5) by Myrtle Vallette Jenkins titled "Vallet, Vallett, Vallette, of Rhode Island" gives this descent to Aaron WORMER:

Laurens Jansen van WORMER m. 1666 Annetje JANS widow of Claas Siervese

Cornelius Laurentze van WORMER (1709-1769) m. 1709 Maria van SCHAAICK (1708-ante 1769) d/o Arent

Aaron WORMER (1754-1813) m. 1780 Phebe VALLET d/o Jeremiah and Ann (Bissell) Vallet

I've seen several trees saying Aaron was s/o Jeremiah van Wormer and Geesje van Huyck, but have not found any supporting evidence.

Aaron's will dated 12 Feb 1813 at Locke, Cayuga County, NY, mentioned his wife Phebe Wormer (sole executrix), son Lawrence Wormer, son Jeremiah Wormer, son John V Wormer, daughter Electy Day, son William B Wormer, and son Abraham Wormer (two youngest sons). The will was proved 17 May 1813.

Does anyone know the names of John Vallet Wormer's children? Census records show he had a daughter born before 1810, 3 sons born between 1810 and 1820, and a son Grover S (a Civil War general) born before 1830.

Hope this helps,
