Hello! I am looking for anyone with information about Al Blauvelt, the artist. I’m trying to find a copy of one of his etchings, The Music Room, for my son. If anyone can tell me about this artist and where I could find his etchings I would appreciate it. All you Blauvelts should be very proud of him!
Best regards,

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.”

My grandmother’s(Frances W (Crosby) Phillips mother’s maiden name was Blauvelt. Her first name was Helen, and middle initial “J”, and she was born abt 1853 in Nova Scotia, and married Fred W. Crosby. At times she may have gone by middle name (possibly Jane). Does anyone have any info on this Blauvelt? I’d love to hear from anyone who may be related. Other children in family were, Ethel, Fred Nelson, James Luther, Helen A., & Beulah. All children except Ethel were born in Lynn, Massachusetts.

We’re researching our family and have run into a road block and are now making a guess. Our family is Brinkerhoff (although sometimes spelled Brinckerhoff). We’ve located a Henry Brinckerhoff born 1759 in Flushing, NY/died 1834 in Beacon, NY. We know we are related to him, we’d just like to be able to trace his wife. 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

I am looking for my birth mother but don’t have her first name and my father is unknown. I was born 7/22/69 in Hackensack NJ with the name of Kelly Blauvelt. I was adopted at the age of 6 months from my foster mother. My adopted parents changed my name to Linda Marie Bussard. I grow up in Cinnaminson NJ. I have been looking for my mother for 5 years now and looking into my birth family history which has been very interesting. It has been a empty part of me that I long to know. I don’t want to cause problems just want to know who I really am and who my family is and medical information. I will respect all private issues in this matter. Please if you have any information that could help me find my family email me and let me know or call at 931-738-3450 Thank you.

I am a local historian, living in Harrington Park, NJ. Our Harrington Park Historical Society has custodial responsibilities for an old town cemetery variously called “The Blauvelt Cemetery” or “Old Burying Ground.” There are many Blauvelts, obviously, interred at the site. I would appreciate hearing from any descendants of persons buried there. I have been able to locate most of the family in the published Blauvelt genealogies; but since those compilations end with the 8th generation I cannot trace for later descendants. Thanks in advance, Davis Ross

. I also am not a Blauvelt, but spent the best years of my life there, from 1967 to 1970. We lived in an amazing neighborhood on Blauvelt Rd. across the street from the JHS. There were one or more kids between the ages of 14-16 in almost every house. For 33 years my brother and I have reminisced about those days and what a fantastic place it was to grow up. This past summer we finally held a reunion, and every single one of us showed up! It was a beautiful experience! It must be gratifying knowing that your family heritage includes establishing a town that inspires complete strangers to thank you!
