For 15 years I have been tracing the descendants of Albert Berdan, born 19 Jly. 1753, New Jersey, his wife Susannah Secord, born 29 Jne. 1759, New York State. They had 11 children, and I have a large amount of information on most of them, and their families. Would like to share. Searching for more information on Albert Susannah's son Daniel.

I am researching the Rutan family and find two marriages to Berdans.

Daniel Rutan (1756-1825) m Rachel Berdan b 1757 at Hackensack, Bergen Co. NJ
Thomas Rutan d 1822 m Christina (Tyne) Berdan prob in Bergen Co.

Thomas and Daniel may be brothers.

I am uncertain as to these Rutans parents and any info you may have would be appreciated.
Also have you found a connection to Hiram Berdan who was in charge of U.S. sharpshooters during the Civil War?

Thanks for your help. Jim Keegan

If I tag Albert Berdan and Susannah Secord and all their direct line descendants, I come up with 479 people. If I tag their entire descendant line, which is all the descendants and all the ancestors of the descendants, I get 8068 people. Is this more or less than you have?

Hi Jim: Thanks for the info, but so far I'm unable to make any connections to Daniel Rutan Rachel Berdan, or Thomas Rutan Christina (Tyne) Berdan. I'm still searching for the parents of Hiram Berdan, then I'll know if I can make a connection. Thanks for replying. Darlene Ruch

Dave: I've never actually counted all my Albert Berdan descendants, but I'm positive I'm somewhere around the same number as you have. Do you have any actual proof of Albert Susannah's marriage? Darlene Ruch e-mail:

Ruth: Yes I forgot that one which I did have. The marriage took place at the Second Ref Ch of Paterson per records I found at the Passaic Co. NJ Historical Society. Thanks, Jim Keegan
