Closest I have is James W Birch married to Eliza Catherine Van Keuren at
Thompson Ridge in 1873. For the Delaware County family, there was 2 lines.
Descendants of Johannes(m. to Catherine Randall) kept the Van Keuren name,

that would likely be Cornelius' (m/ to Jannetje Vosburgh) line.

Lois Graves married Silas Royse. Their son, George W Royse married Nancy
