  • Notes 
    • We hold various records indicating that Ellen’s name may have “evolved”, with records found of “Aletta” (Paramus RDC Baptism), “Adaline” (1850 Census), and “Ellen” (1880 Census and Pascack Historical Society records) who are clearly the same person based on parentage and spouse.

      Headstone photo in file: Valleau Cemetery, Ridgewood, NJ gives spelling of Ellen’s name as TURSE, the same as used by her brother, Jacob Young TURSE in all of his records.

      Ellen inherited a house and farm on Werimus Road, near Woodcliff Lake, from her grandfather, Jacob, and lived there with Thomas Banta until 1901.

      6. TUERS-BANTA HOUSE

      This sandstone and frame house stood on the east side of Werimus Road near #20 Werimus Road, the site of the modern day residence at that address. The main portion was built of sandstone, above which a full second story of frame was added. The single slant roof with early dormers may have been raised from the original level. A frame kitchen wing to the west was a story and a half with “lie on your stomach” windows on the second floor.

      The house in its original form was built by Jacob Tuers on a farm containing about 40 acres, inherited by Will of his father, Lawrence Tuers (No. 3), proved on March 5, 1803. Jacob was married about 1798, and had one son, Lawrence, who died before his father leaving two children, Ellen and Jacob. When Jacob, Senior, died in 1850, he devised the homestead and farm to granddaughter Ellen, wife of Thomas Banta. The Banta family lived here until 1901, when the farm was sold to Martha and Daniel Lewis. They operated a dairy on the property and it was during their ownership that the old house was destroyed by fire. The old barn survives to the north of the present dwelling. [6]
