We have conflicting information regarding Jacob Young Turse’s parents. The Blauvelt Genealogy has his father, Lawrence, as son of Jacob Toers and Aaltje Blauvelt, which we believe is correct, but the Ackerman Genealogy has Laurence married to Ann Ackerman, which we believe is incorrect for this line. We show Ann or Hannah Ackerman married to Laurence Tuers, s/o Abraham Toers and Rachel .
We have Jacob’s Bible in our files. It gives the spelling of his name as TURSE, while much of the family continued to use the TUERS form of the name. This same spelling was taken by Aaron TURSE family of Westwood, NJ, although name variants appeared in public records until after 1890.
Jacob Y. Turse’s Bible gives his birth date as 6 July 1822, a considerable variance from the RDC Paramus Baptism Record.
