I've "rescued" an old photograph of the VAN ETTEN Family which was taken at
the Dereich Studio in Lyme, NY. The photograph appears to have been taken
in the late 1890's with the 6 children ranging in age from infant to teens
and their Mother likely in her 30's at the time. Based on limited research
I was able to locate the following information regarding this family:
William Peter VANETTEN was b. abt 1840 in Belfort, NY to parents Jacobus
VANETTEN Jr. (b. 30 Oct 1798) and Katherine MURPHY. William married Emona
Gene BALCOM in Carthage, NY and the couple had at least 5 children
including, Sophia; Gladys; Grace; Emma; and L. Roy VANETTEN. L. Roy
VANETTEN was b. 9 Nov 1888 in Belfort, NY and married Alice MAHER and
together they had three children including, John; Roy, and James P.
