I have done extensive research on several lines of the family and have arrived at my maternal great great grandmother and her father. My g g grandmother was Laura Lavinah Van Buskirk born 1-1-1831 in Ohio. She married George Downing 3-8-1852. She died in Cincinatti, Ohio 4-2-1870. Following her death George moved to Iowa by covered wagon. Laura's father was Jesse Van Buskirk and his wife's name was Fanny. Does this sound familiar to anyone out there? This is all I know of our Van Buskirk line. Thank for your help. Donna Love

I don't see anything in my database that would
match us up. Your Charles Peter would match with
my Grandmother Ethel Downing in generations and
John would match with Ellsworth Downing. Ellsworth's
mother was the Van Buskirk in our family. I
have discovered a few more generations since I
posted the notice. They are as follows: Laura, 1831;
Jesse, 1790; Andrew, 1757, George, 1721; Johannes, 1692;
Andries, 1660; Lourens, 1630. If we have a common connection
it would probably be Andries or Lourens.
I am still trying to find if Laura had any brothers or sisters.
