About William Vanantwerp
William Vanantwerp is listed as head of household in the 1850 Census living with his wife Mariah, and three boys, George W. (17 yrs.), William H. (14 yrs.) and Benjamin F. (7 yrs.). It is not clear if these boys are his sons or grandsons. William was 50 and his wife 51 so sons this young for a woman her age was probably not common. I have listed them as sons until I can find out otherwise.
