Do not have info on the specific Van Buskirks you mentioned, but do have info on Sarah
Nelson (whose line is from the established Nelson line of Putnam, Dutchess and Westchester
Counties) and Cornelius Van Buskirk (1776-1863,
married in Louisville, Kentucky about 1800. Sarah Nelson's
line descends from John Nelson through Polycarpus,Thomas
to John Nelson who removed to Louisville, KY in the late
1700's. Cornelius Van Buskirk is the son of John Van Buskirk
(b. 1736, NY) and Alice Earle.
