  • Notes 
    • RDC Paramus records show Polly a widow at the birth of Elizabeth Ellen

      We have a marriage record that does not coincide with other Maria Tuers records, and may be evidence of a second marriage:

      EVANGELICAL LUTHERN CHURCHES OF SADDLE RIVER & RAMAPO
      Marriages by Jacob DEWY, Pastor:


      7 Dec 1842, Henry GARDINER (of Tappan) & Maria TURSE (of Wearmis)
      (Wearimus Rd is a road through Washington Township and Ho-ho-kus today that junctions with Saddle River Rd, and an area identified in early maps near Woodcliff Lake, an area that generally describes farmland ownership of Arie Toers/Tuers, the ancestry in the ancestry of Jim Turse – ed.) Based on the location, Wearimus, and dates, this may actually be Maria (Polly) Ryer, widow of Gerrit Tuers, in that she was widowed by 1839.

      Bergen County, New Jersey Marriage Records
      Copied from the Entries as Originally Made at the Court House by the Ministers & Justices of the Peace of the County

      Compiled by Mrs. Frances A. Westervelt
      Curator of the Bergen County Historical Society
      New York, 1929

      1850 Census, Washington Township, Bergen, NJ 31 August 1850 lists Maria, age 34, and her children (Tures) living with Henry Gardiner. This is the first record for Garret H Tures, and is in conflict with the death date of Garret Tuers, presumably the father of Garret H Tures

      In correspondence between Ree Hopper and Pat Wardell, two noted Bergen County genealogists,
      By the way, FYI, Maria (Polly) Ryer, dau. of James Ryer & Elizabeth Delamater was not a Ryerson; the Ryer family in Bergen County was a separate and distinct family from the Ryerson family (although the two families have often been mistaken for one and the same) -- The Ryer/Ryerse family and the Ryerson family had totally different ancestors. I have a bit more info on the Ryer/Ryerse family if anyone is interested. [2, 6]
