  1. Hi,

    I found your blog doing a google search for vanzandt. My grandfather, Lawrence Buck, was the grandson of Robert Buck and Sarah Vanzandt. I’d greatly appreciate any more information you have on the Vanzandts or for pointing me in the right direction of some primary sources. Thanks!

    Hi Lauren,
    Sarah Vanzandt was the fist born child of Abraham Williams Vanzandt and Mary Ann Verlenden.

    see this site:

    Happy hunting!!


  3. I am trying to trace my Grandfather Harry Morehouse Van Zandt born in 1867 around Somerset
    Pennsylvania. He was a mason in Harrisburg. Met my Grandmother Mabel Pike Phasey in his later life and had two children Robert and Mary. His history before that is non-existant. A letter arrived saying his wife had died but my grandmother never knew he had a wife alive. I thought i had found him as George R Van Zandt’s son. But your record says Harry died way before my grandfather in who 1947. The story that my Harry comes from i of a family of 5 brothers who fought in the Civil War.
    Any suggestion where i can look besides Best Tatiana

    I have an ancestor named Hannah VanZandt bor 1711 in Amsterdam, New York
    married Robert Higgins and died, I think in Lexington, KY i 1871. do you have one of
    these names in your family?

    I know my “nuts” came from somewhere. I have to find someone ti blame for me.

    I just luckily stumbled upon this site. I am descended from Elizabeth Vanzant Morris’s son, Abraham Rowland Morris. In my research (census records), I have found her husband to to be named John Henry, but you have it listed as William.

    Do you have anything else about Elizabeth her family?
