I have a William VREDENBURG, bc1810 NY or OH who was m to Susan Jane ? and Mary Ann WILLIAMS. Not sure this could be yours also? I can't find mine after the 1900 census.

I believe this is my William VREDENBURG:

Surname Given Name Middle Initial Company Unit Rank - Induction Rank - Discharge Notes Allegiance
Vredenburg William A 75 Illinois Infantry. Private Private Vredenburgh, William Union.

This is what it says on the War Department papers to the Commissioner of Pensions: William VREDENBURGH Co. D. 6 U. S. Inf. was Enl. June 19/40 at New York, N>Y> Dischrd, June19/45 at Fort Smith, Ark. Exp. of service- a fifer. Enlisted Aug. 20/45 at Fort owson, C. N. in the Band 6th U.S. Inf. Dischd. Aug. 20/50 Exp. of service - at Fort Snelling, Minn. - a pvt. no later recrd.

This is what else was found in a copy of pension app for Mary Anne COURTNEY: Reference to the records shows that one Susan Jane VREDENBURGH was pensioned as the widow of William Vredenburgh Musician, Band of 6th US Inf under Ctf. #1,812. (Mex. War). The papers in the claim show that VREDENBURGH r'cd May 14/75 and that the widow r'cd and was last paid to Feb 4, 1900. This pensioner showed marriage to VREDENBURGH Dec. 15, 1852.

For the record, Holly also contacted me directly, and what do you know, I was able to find the family she was looking for. In fact I had LOTS of information on this family. Go to:

NOW my question who was the father of Hachaliah Vredenburgh (b. 1783 NY, d. 1867 IL) the great grandfather of William.
