Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Gabriel VAN GUNDY

Residences & events:

1840 Harrison Twp, Ross Co, OH, was his residence at census time. Next door were his parents, followed by brother Aaron. Brother Peter lived just down the road in the other direction, as did brother-in-law, Peter Chester. Gabriel's family included: 1 male under 5, Gabriel at 20-30, 2 females aged 10-15, (Julia & Mary Jane) and 1 female at 30-40.

Bef 9/1848 Springfield, Lagrange Co, IN where Anna's daughter Mary Jane married. (Did they follow Amish Mennonites who had settled there in 1841?)

9/19/1850 Springfield, LaGrange Co, IN. The census taker found the family there listing Gabriel at 34, a laborer, Anna at 40 and the children were: John W, 14, Andrew P, 12, Abraham, 9, and Dulcina, 5.

Gabriel could have moved the family to IL, then died shortly after or Anna may have moved with the children after Gabriel died in IN.
