I'm a descendant through my Maternal line. A well known Dutch family who was one of the first to the U.S. Colonies.

Do I share the line with anyone here? My GG grandmother was Altha Bert VanMeterb. 1873 Elizabethtown, KY, daughter of Leeanne VanMeter and Walter Prather VanMeter.
Did my infancy succeed another age of mine that dies before it? Was it that which I spent within my mother's womb? . . . And what before that life again, O God of my joy, was I anywhere or in any body?

:D Hi,

Only 25% of me (mother's mother) goes back to colonial times. But within that branch are many different threads. One of those supposedly goes back to a Lambert Jochemse Van Valkenburg, born 1614 in Limburg, Netherlands and died 1697 in Albany, NY. A supposed son, Hendrick Jacobs Falkenburg 1645-1740 started a line that led to my branch, which went south to the Carolinas. Eventually an offshoot went up to Kentucky and on to Indiana; which led to my grandmother (born 1897 in Wisconsin).
