I have the following in my database that may be of interest to you.
Andrew A. Van Steenburgh born Oct. 1880 in New York State, parents John Van
Steenburgh and Sarah Butler. See
1. 1892 New York State Census Delaware County Town of Andes 3rd. Election
District page 2,
2. 1900 Federal Census Town of Andes Delaware County New York State
Supervisor District #9 Enumerator District # 1 sheet 3B,
3. 1905 New York State Census Delaware County Town of Andes 3rd. Election
District page 2.
Frank Van Steenburgh born 1879, parents John Van Steenburgh and Anna Matilda
1. 1880 Federal Census Town of Colchester Delaware County New York State
2. Petition for Letters of Administration upon the estate of John Van
Steinburgh dated Jan. 11, 1884. Frank is listed as a surviving son.
Frank's father John Van Steenburgh was convicted of the murder of Osman N.
Steele, the Under Sheriff of Delaware County during the Anti-Rent War.
I am related to two separate branches of Van Steenburghs and although I
haven't proved it yet I believe that all Van Steenburghs in Delaware County
prior to 1900 were related and that they are descended from the Kingston Van
Hope this has been some help to your research.

Subject: [NYDELAWA-L] Van Steenburgh children
Hoping someone out there may know the parents of these
Andrew Van Steenburgh b. abt. 1883, Frankie Van Steenburgh b. abt. 1885,
Steenburgh b. abt. 1887,
Olin Van Steenburgh b. abt. 1892.
These children were in the Andes school Dist. No.20 in
the school year Sept. 107, 1896- June 17, 1897.
I need their parents names. I have a hunch that they are all
cousins of each other these children in this class in this
Andes school as there were Jenkins, Huntley's, and
Van Steenburgh and Keator children these families all
in the same school together.
Any help is most appreciated. Thanks, Monica
