I first learned about my family connection to the Van Deren family when
researching my Tremble ancestors who lived in Coles County, IL about
1830-1886. Some members of the Van Deren family and descendants lived
there are the same time and one married into the Tremble line.
The Van Deren/Von Duehren families originated in Germany/Konigsburg
Stadt, East Prussia. Their migration was from there to New York City
> Schoharie, NY > Morris Co, NJ > Cynthiana,
Harrison Co, KY > Nicholas Co, KY > Bracken Co, KY > Coles Co,
IL > Los Angeles, CA.
Some of the surnames included in
this family line: Blumnau, Coleman, Cross, Jones, Munson,
Murray, Sanders, Shelton, Shutz, Tremble, Van Deren, Van Horn, Von
Duehren, Wiglesworth, Wilson, and others.
