  • Notes 

    • 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 (not verified - please notify us if this record needs to be edited).

      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.

      1850 Census Washington Township, Bergen, NJ 31 Aug 1850, lists Jacob Tures, age 27, Farmer, and Caroline, age 24. Dwelling #939. Living in Dwelling #938, with Aaron Van Derbake, age 21, Farmer as head of household, is Abram Tures, age 64, Laborer. Other members of household: Jane, age 17, Cordelia, age 1, Harry Jackson, age 6 (Black) born New Jersey.

      1860 Census, Washington Township, Bergen, NJ 7 July 1860 lists Jacob’s age as 37. Living with him are wife Caroline, age, 35; son John H, age 6; servant, Betsy Vreeland, age 30; John Storm, age 7; and, Laborer, C...illegible Post, age 49.
