Dozens of Cousins

1694 Santa Margarita Drive
Fallbrook, CA 92028-1639

The following charts illustrate the extensive cousin intermarriage among the ancestors of Annatje Eckerson (born 20 October 1787 Schoharie Co., New York). Links on ancestors in the second chart (showing ancestors of Annatje Eckerson's mother, Geertruid Becker), go to earlier appearances of the same individuals in the first chart (which shows ancestors of Annatje Eckerson's father, John Eckerson). The names of Albert Andriesse Bradt de Noorman and his wife Annatje Barentse van Rotmerz, which appear twice in both charts, are capitalized (the fourth chart takes the opposite point of view, so that Annatje Eckerson appears four times as a descendent of this couple). The third chart shows the descent of James Nohl Churchyard from Annatje Eckerson.
