1. Francis Vandervoort - was born on 5 Dec 1763 in New York and died in 1836 and was buried in Hogle Pioneer Cemetery, Sidney Twp, Hastings, Ontario .
Francis married Hanna Acker on 8 Nov 1784 in Duchess co, New York. Hanna was born in 1765. She died in 1850 and was buried in Hogle Pioneer Cemetery, Sidney Twp, Hastings, Ontario .

Francis -

(from Pioneer Life of the Bay of Quinte - p 835)

 
was a native of Duchess County, NY, and a weaver by trade. By 1802 he and Hanna had 7 children. They realized that their children would have a better chance a acquire homes for themselves in the new province of Upper Canada and resolved to emigrate. With their children and all their worldly effects they followed the Mohawk river as far as they could in a small open boat.
 
They paddled away from the land of their birth to a destination unknown from them. Following the usual route, hauling their boat between water stretches and sleeping under it when overtaken by night, they reached in safety the shore of Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Oswego River. Easily making their way from there, they crossed to the Canadian shore. Then they proceeded up the Bay of Quinte until they landed at White's Creek. There they remained a few years, but settled in lot 17 in the 2nd concession of Sidney. As by the time the Vandervoorts arrives, earlier settlers on the Front had made a good beginning, and the weaver pioneer was able to ply his trade from the start, which was an advantage his neighbors had not enjoyed.

I have printed your geneology, because my great grandfather and his siblings are part of it. I saw a photo of Dr. Elgin van der Voort (this is the way my grandfather always spelled it) and he's blonde. His wife, Henrietta, is said to be related to the opera singer Beverly Sills.
 
Elgin and Henrietta had one child, May. May married Douglas Rothwell, and had one daughter, Marian. Marian married Ron Calder, and had Elgin's great grandchildren, Douglas and Suzanne Calder.
 
Ben's daughter Carrie had Edna and Elfrida (Elfie). Elfrida's painting-work was seen on the American Antiques Roadshow. Both sisters had been in Muskoka, visiting their cousin, Reay. Elfie gave me a necklace of daisy beads. Morley Penshaw van der Voort married Hermenia Walker, and had Morley Carmen ("Hap", because he was always cheerful) and Reay Curtis. Hermenia died, and Morley married Lillis Sleeth, and they had Marshall, who still lives. He must be in his eighties, now.
 
Carmen ("Hap") married Irene, and they had Michael, who with Wendy, have three children and a crew of grandchildren. Reay Curtis married Tillie Cleminshaw, and they had two girls, Joan Beatrice and Alice Evelyn van der Voort. Joan has Ruth, Lois, Phyllis, Aura, Becky, John, and Lloyd. Lyn (Alice E.) had Doug, Brenda and Barb. Doug died young. Brenda and Barb live in Florida. Barb is a grandmother.
