Resending through the list, as I don't think this posting go to the list,
because Arlene is in the midst of getting a new e-mail address so was not
subscribed under her new e-mail address.
For information to get to the list you must be subscribed. So...if anyone
gets a new e-mail address, please unsubscribe using the old address and
resubscribe using your new.
I know it is a little complicated, but that will solve problems. Also, you
may subscribe using two different e-mail addresses if you prefer. I have a
PC with one address and a laptop with another for convenience.
Please contribute any information that might help us connect those
disconnected families. I will also be telling you about our special
bulletin boards soon.
Take care all,

Subject: Jemima/ Betsy death dates
Concerning the death dates for Jemima and Betsy, daughters of William and
(Van Kleaf/Cleave) Laberteaux:
Jemima died 21 May 1886 and Betsy died in 1861. THE LABERTEAUX FAMILY
- THE MICHIGAN MIGRATION has the dates reversed. Sorry :~(
[If you find other conflicts/ errors, please let us know.]
Eva's name is found in some records as Van Kleaf [notably the Somerset Co.
(NJ) Hist. Qtly]. One has to be a real detective using the 1700's records,
and think PHONETICALLY. You can't believe the ways that Laboyteaux/
Laberteaux has been spelled.
I note that these booklets mentioned below have conflicting data:
One says Jemima, dau/o William & Eva (VAN KLEAF/CLEAVE) LABERTEAUX, d 1861
and the other says d 21 May 1886. Then the other book reverses the same
dates for daughter Betsy.
Which are the correct death dates for these daughters?
Since you are author of both booklets possibly you can clarify this
information for me. Also, was the name VAN CLEAVE found with both
spellings? I know I have also seen it as VAN CLEAF in records.
