Hello everyone...I JUST recently got interested in genealogy and started doing some research. I found a Sarah Blauvelt in one of my lines. She married a Jacobus Smith who had a daughter named Anna Smith who married a Daniel Haring back in 1798. My grandfather was James Smith Haring III, and I am rather excited to see this interest in the Blauvelt line. Anna Smith was born on Mar 14 1774, but I have no information on her mother Sarah Blauvelt who married Jacobus Smith. I would love to learn more about the family reunions. I now live in the Dallas, TX area. I do remember the Haring side of the family went back to the original Tappan families. The one uncle who had all of this information died and all was lost. I did retrieve a bit of information from an obituary he had written up for a younger brother who died. I used part of that obituary information to start my search. Here is part of my mother's write with the same information. Anything you can add would be of great help. Thanks a bunch!

Here is part of Mom's write up: "Elizabeth Nurmi was a descendant of the Harings, who were the original settlers of New Amsterdam and patentees of the Orangeburg Patent, settling in Tappan, New York and harringtown, now Harrington Park, New Jersey. She was also a direct scion of the Viscount Tracys of Stanway Castle, Galway Ireland. Her ancestors served in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. She is also a descendant of the Requa family who were amongst the French Huguenots who settled in New Rochelle, New York in the late 1600s. Her great grandfather was an owner of Glode Requa Coal and Lumber Company in Monsey, New York. James Smith Haring, III, her father, died in June 1965, and her mother Marguerite Blanche Haring died in 1982 at the age of 92."

His wife is unknown however they had a child, Garret Blauvelt Brinckerhoff, born 1805 NY, NY. Thought maybe Blauvelt was the mother's maiden name. We do know that the mother was born 1771 in NY and died March 22, 1824 in Beacon, NY. That's Dutchess County. I know this is a long shot, but any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance

What, if anything, does anyone know about John F. Kennedy marrying into the Blauvelt Family prior to his marriage to Jacquelyn Bouvier? I've read that he was once married to Durie Malcolm, a member of the Blauvelt family. This is supposedly mentioned in Louis L. Blauvelt's book, "The Blauvelt Family Genealogy," but I have not yet located a copy of it.

I am not related to the Blauvelt family. I am an avid genealogist though. I have been given my greatgrandmothers old scrap book of which she has pictures and very old movie actors and actresses. The one picture of a very pretty woman also stayed in my mind. I decided to get on internet to learn things about these people. The pic I am in possession of is on magazine paper. It is a very pretty pic an in good condition of the famous opera singer Lillian Blauvelt if anyone is related to her let me know.

Great site! I was wondering how and where my immediate family fit in. My grandfather was Sydney Blauvelt (lived in Lynn, MA; passed away 1980) and my father was Richard M. Blauvelt, born in Lynn, served in US Coast Guard during WW2; passed away 1979). Is anyone out there familiar with either of these names? I dont remember ever meeting any other relatives from my fathers side of the family. Thnaks!

Hello, I moved to a new home built on 601 N. Greenbush Rd. Blauvelt, New York 10913 and my property was subdivided from a lady named Marion Neville (our Neighbor). I was told our property was built on a horse farm. A couple of years ago I met a decendent of your family (great great great great granddaughter and she informed me that our street (greenbush between Rt.59 & Bradley Pky) was a milk farm. Is there any other history that you know of about our special Road that is on the history books. I also heard that the field just South of our home (Buttermilk Falls County Park) was a landing strip for some small planes (back in the thirties???

I'm new at this, so bear with me if this seems tacky. Our family, through my paternal grandmother, is connected. She was a Haring decended from someone who married into the Blauvelt family. Now here's the interesting part, my folks possess a curved Revolutionary-era sword which family records say was a Colonel Blauvelt's under GW. Any help on this?

I don't have a good relationship with my father, but would like to find out some more info!! I know that my great grandfathers name was Elmer Blauvelt, and he passed on a few years back.

This site is great. Am still going through my grandmothers family papers and am trying to get it all organized, there is quite a bit of it. She was a Greenleaf and my grandfather (her husband) was a Blauvelt and the papers she has on both has proved very interesting as both lines are very long. I thought it was going to be easiest to trace the Blauvelt roots, but actually it has been easier on the Greenleaf's, which really urprises me! My grandfather was Irving Spencer Blauvelt and in his line I have only gotten back to William Herbert and Mellissa Elvira (Newton) Blauvelt who were his grandparents. Edwin Arthur and Ida Holly (Reed) were his parents. He also had 7 brothers-Hollis Arthur, Paul Vernon, Russell Winslow (who I am assuming died as an infant), Donald (also must have died as an infant), Merrill Maynard, Robert Franklin, and one sister, Dorothy Louise(Drevitson-Walsh) Blauvelt. It's so neat to see so many of us Blauvelt's around. I also got the chance to visit Blauvelt NY a couple of years ago and was so happy to get to visit there. I took pictures of my kids standing in front of places like the library, fire station, and a really neat diner. But like I said before, it was a little weird seeing a cemetery full of headstones with my last name!! I live up here in NH, but am originally from Medford, MA. My father is Robert M. Blauvelt Sr.. I think my GGgranfather was born in Cooperstown NY. And to the James M. Blauvelt who wrote in here back on Aug 28, 2000--------Yes you are related to US Blauvelts (as scary as that may seem!) And yes, your grandfather's name was Hollis. Hollis and my grandfather, Irving, were brothers. (Oh, and tell your dad Jim I said hello! LOL) I think we have a fascinating family and would love to hear from other Blauvelt's and Greenleaf's. Jeannie
