Abraham & Susanna (Goodwin) VanAmburg

Fifth Generation
Abraham VanAmburg, with a brother & sister were baptised on the same day, 5 Oct 1804. As to the dates of birth, we have not yet been able to find any information. This is a case of research in genealogy that is ongoing.

His marriage was to Sarah Goodwin who was born 1 August 1800. She was the daughter of Thomas and Susanna (Cray) Goodwin.
Their children:
* Ebenezer:
Lydia: d 24 Oct 1876; m. 22 Dec 1859 Thomas H. Goodwin

As in the case of many families originally from the Netherlands there has been repetition of given names, obviously continued through the preceding generations listed in this blog. Determining the fourth generation link among the brothers was not with firm enough documentation as will satisfy all, however we have concluded that, given present information, John and his wife Lidia is correct. . . . and there is always more to be learned.
