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!

Amazing! I can trace my line right back to Gerrit! I can’t believe that this site exists. About two years ago I ordered some stickers with the coat of arms on it. I thought it would be interesting for my father. Now, I find out that we are actually descendents of the same Blauvelts as the descendants who operate this site. My grandmother(Jane McGonigal married to David Blauvelt Sr.)left a complete geneology of our line all the way back to Gerrit. It includes info about him being a shoemaker and such. Also, it was always joked about in our family that we had a pirate in our ancestory. I was sad to find out that there is no substantial information to support this. That’s all for now. Great site! I will be in touch.

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

My sister,Adeline (Cissi), was a good friend of James A. Blauvelt, from Nyack, N.Y., in early 1950’s.He would be in his 70’s… She is visiting me in November, and asked if I could find out if Jimmy, still lived in Rockland County. She would like to contact him. I believe his brother’s name is Elmer “Purdy” Blauvelt.

I was interested to see that Edward Hopper descends from this line. His friend and American painter of the same generation George Wesley Bellows is also related by marriage. Emma Louise Story, his wife and art student, is the 10th generation great grandaughter of the immigrant.

Wow what a big family I never realized and have been so interested in learning more of where I came from. Not sure if you all can help me or not. But I am looking for my birth mother but don’t have her 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 and my adopted parents changed my name to Linda Marie Bussard. I grow up in Cinnaminson NJ. I have been looking for my mother for 3 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 you can call at 931-738-3496 Thank you.
