Obituary published 20 Jan 2018 in the Capitol Gazette, Annapolis, MD

Arthur M. Tuers, 87, of Eastport, passed away Friday January 12 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Arthur was born in Eastport to Lawrence and Viola, where he grew up with brothers Lawrence (Jumbo), Billy, Harry, and sister Edith. Harry currently resides in Ohio. He was happily married to his wife of 56 years, Olga Louise. He is survived by his daughter Nancy Schmidt, grandson Bill Crandall, daughter-in-law Sharon, and great grandsons Quinn and Owen.Arthur joined the navy after high school where he served in the North Atlantic aboard the 'Fesseden'. Employed in the HVAC industry, Arthur spoke fondly of the decades he volunteered at the Eastport Fire Department. More recently, he volunteered his time at the Annapolis Maritime Museum providing a priceless living history of the area. Arthur was a passionate advocate of the bay; he crabbed, fished and hunted on her shores his entire life. He was kind and generous, tough when he had to be, and he will be sorely missed. There will be graveside service February 3, at 2 o'clock, at Hillcrest Cemetery on 1911 Forest Drive, 21401, with a celebration of life to follow at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, 723 2nd St, Annapolis, 21403 at 3 o'clock. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Maritime Museum.

181 According a history of Paterson, Post was born on the east side of the Wesel road (now Lexington avenue) in the neighborhood of the parsonage of the First Reformed Church of Passaic. At the time Washington marched through Acquackanonk, he ordered the bridge destroyed to delay the British, and John H. Post was deputized as one of the party to destroy it. Rather than destroy the bridge, John Post organized his neighbors on the morning of 21 November 1776 into a working party, and an the following day they dismantled the decking of the 297 foot-long bridge and stacked it on the Passaic side of the river. He was also at the battle of Monmouth, and his widow, who died in the one hundred and fifth year of her age, was a Revolutionary pensioner. Among his children were: Metje, who married David Cogh; Louwerens, born Dec. 25, 1796, familiarly known as Larry Post; Johannis; Sally; Sussanna, besides eight others.

185 According to Barbara Wills, Joseph was a wheelwright and later a fishmonger in Fulton Market, NYC. He went to California in the 1850’s to start an oyster business in the San Francisco Bay area, and settled in Santa Clara County. He made the trip west with his son John, leaving other children in the care of his mother, Eleanor (Van Winkle) Tuers. As an odd and interesting side note, Eleanor later married BF Welsh, father-in-law of Joseph’s first wife Gertrude Welsh.

As a side note, on December 4, 1847, Joseph Tuers, of Jersey City, registered a patent for a device for the improvement of Boats in sailing.

191 According to local history Laurens settled in Saddle River.

The first attempt to settle lands west of the Saddle River was made in 1681, when a patent was issued by Governor Carteret and his council to Jacob Cortelyou, Hendrick Smock, Rutgert Joosten, and others, for 3,525 acres of section 29, adjoining the Saddle River on the east and south, partly on the Passaic River and partly on a brook, on the west. This patent was declared forfeited for non-settlement. The second attempt was made seven years later (March 25, 1687), when section 18, containing 5,320 acres, described as lying between the Passaic and Saddle Rivers,-" beginning at the meeting of the said rivers and running northerly along the Passaic River, its several turns, reduced to a straight line,. four miles and thirty-six chains to a white oak tree marked on four sides at the Bound Brook, thence from the Bound Brook north east by a great Rock of Stone, eighty four chains, thence north east along the line of the Indian purchase, one hundred and eight chains, thence along Saddle River southwesterly to the place where it began. Being in length, reduced to a straight line, six miles and a half,"-was patented by the proprietors to nine persons, to wit: Colonel Richard Townley, of Elizabethtown, N. J.; Captain Elbert Elbertsen (Stoothoff), of Flatlands, L. I. ; Jaques (James) Cortelyou, of New Utrecht, L. I.; Richard Stillwell, of Staten Island, N. Y.; William Nicholls, of the City of New York; Catharine IHoagland, of Flatlands, L. I.; Peter Jacobus Marius (Morris), of the City of New York; and Roloff Joosten (Van Brunt) and Hendrick Matthiesen, of New Utrecht, L. I. The survivors of these persons, and the heirs of those deceased, partitioned the tract, May 16, 1692, and thereafter sold it to settlers as follows : Joshua Bos (Bush), Thomas Jurianse (Van Reipen). John Van Horn, John Post, Halmagh Van Houten, Garret Jurianse (Van Reipen), Garret Garretson (Van Wagoner), Garret Garretson (Van Wagoner), Jr., John Garretson (Van Wagoner), Peter Garretson (Van Wagoner), Dirck Barentsen, Thomas Fredericksen, Warner Burger, Abram Van Varrick, Laurence Toers, Peter Jacobsen Morris, David Laurencen Ackerman, Dirk Van Zyle, Hendrick Vandelinda, Jacob Marinus, Thomas F. and Andries F. Cadmus, and John Billfield. This section is sometimes called in deeds " Acquackannock " and sometimes " Slotterdam," and comprised the greater part of the present Township of Saddle River. The "Rock" referred to is supposed to have been what is now Glen Rock.

194 According to notes in his handwritten biographical sketch, John Henry (Jack) Goodman sailed aboard the Allen Line ship SS Tunisian embarking from Liverpool, England 25 August 1910.

The Tunisian was a primary carrier of British Home Children. These children were forced to emigrate from England, and then bound to work for Canadian families - a practice which went on across the Commonwealth until the early 1960’s. Jack was not one of these children, but received a letter in England while from John Price, a school friend who had gone to Canada as a child, and offered to assist him to travel to Canada, sending him a ticket for travel from Liverpool to Quebec aboard the SS Tunisian. Jack arrived in Quebec on 2 September. He worked as a farm laborer in Canada for a year. He left Canada via train on 7 September 1911, to arrive in Brooklyn, New York where he found work as a shipping clerk. (See My Life Time by John Henry Goodman, transcribed by Jim Turse & Cindy Goodman Turse. The original is held by Janet Goodman Chapman, Mystic, CT) While in Brooklyn, he met and courted Jessie Irene Truss, the sister of George Truss, a fellow Englishman he befriended and met with a couple of times each week after work.

His WW I Draft Registration Card on June 5, 1917 lists him as living at 9 Reynolds Hill, Mystic, CT while employed by Mr. Albert Haley as a gardener in Mystic. He is described as medium in build with grey eyes and brown hair. 
GOODMAN, John Henry (Jack) (I65)
195 According to Rutan genealogists, Henry first married Annatje, sister of Francis, but it may have actually been her cousin, Annatie, daughter of Nicholas Toers and Janet Van Rypen.

He moved at some point from Belleville, NJ to Staten Island, NY according to the Descendants of Claudin Ruttan, page 10, Part1. 
RUTAN, Hendrick (Henry) (I401)
196 According to Shelfanger, Norfolk, England records, Robert, was apprenticed to Rob Libbon as a bricklayer in 1773, alongside his brother William, later apprenticed in 1767.

Birth date is calculated based on approximate apprentice age 12. 
GRANGER, Robert (I4093)
197 According to Shelfanger, Norfolk, England records, William, at age 12, was apprenticed to Rob Libbon as a bricklayer in 1767, joined by his brother Robert, later apprenticed in 1773.

198 According to Steve Rottinger’s notes, James Tuers was a wood turner who worked for Collignon Chair Factory.

Married by Rev. P.V. Van Buskirk in Closter

The 1880 Census for Harrington shows an infant daughter, Delia, born in September 1879 (no further record). 
TUERS, James H. (I578)
199 According to the 1900 Census, mother Ann Eliza (b. 1829, NY) was living with him at Hillsdale, NJ and it appears that although he is head of household, he is living at or next to the dwelling of John Tuers and family. John Tuers mother, Maria, is listed as living with family. This family may not be the correct Garret Tuers

Ann E (age 42) W, is listed living with Aaron Tuerse, in the 1870 Census, Saddle River Twp, Paterson, with Garry, age 13 in the household. This seems to be the right family, but not the right name of mother. Anna Eliza (born 1829) is the name of Mary Thorp (born 1832) Turse’s step-sister, d/o John Thorp and Maria Lent, first wife. 
TUERS, Garret (I43)
200 According to the Blauvelt book there were only two Joseph Blauvelt's in America old enough to fight at the time of the Revolution. Therefore the Joseph Blauvelt (no middle initial) must be our ancestor. Furthermore, one of Joseph's brothers fought with this same Militia. Joseph and his first wife were married at Tappan on the 26 Jun 1775 and had children baptized in the Tappan DRC for a time before moving to (Bergen County, NJ) DRC Schraalenburgh - children baptized there. After a few years they returned to Tappan and once again made use of that church for their baptisms. Joseph is found in the 1790 Federal Census living in Orange, Orange, NY (which then included modern day Tappan, Rockland, NY). Joseph is shown as the only white male adult over 16 years of age, along with one white male under sixteen (his son Jan), four white females (wife Maria, and daughters Aeltje, Jannetje, and Elizabeth), and two slaves. Joseph married his second wife on the 9 Jan 1802 in Tappan. Joseph died before 13 Dec 1817 when his second wife married Isaac Hutchins.
