Mary's father Thomas is believed to have originated in France, but went to
the Netherlands. Here's what I have on father and daughter.

I, too, am descended from Paulus Van der BEECK and Jeuriaen BLANCK. It's
good to find another BLANCK researcher. You are the first. Alothough there
is a BLANCK MailList at rootsweb, almost all subscribers (at least while I
subscribed, appeared to be descended from German BLANKs, and not from the
Hudson Valley.

I have a large Descendants File, in Word for Windows 95 text format, which I
am willing to share. Let me know if you are interested.
