Roosevelt, Statia

Postby hill0788 » Sat Jan 26, 2008 7:23 pm

Adolphus Roosevelt married Elizabeth Dekker, had two daughters, Sarah and Catherine.

They moved from New York sometime after 1763 to ST. Eustatia Island. They were Dutch and descendants of the same man, Claes Van Rosenvelt and Jannetje Thomas, as were Teddy and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

There is supposed to be a Roosevelt Plantation on Statia (St. Eustatius). Catherine Roosevelt married James Amory, but I cannot find a marriage date for them. Can anyone please help me?

Thank you, Beth Hill

No, I did not have that information
Thank you very much. The name Roseveldt was anglicized to Roosevelt when the family came to the USA.
Again, thank you.
