Du Bois is a prominent Dutch early American NJ - Ohio family that my 3rd great uncle who was a Van Kowenhoven (Conover) was dead ended from on his mother's side. Like the Pettigrews were Scotch Irish. (Petigru).

Hatte Blejer on partial hiatus would love to look in to the Dutch side for you

11/2/2012 at 8:07 AM

Daniel Du Bois Here is one of the Du Bois from New Jersey (Freehold) who moved to Ohio in what was called the Jersey Settlement. From what I can tell, they were members of the Dutch Reform Church in Freehold and intermarried with the Van Kowenhoven and other Dutch families. There's at least one site devoted to their family tree I believe.

11/2/2012 at 8:09 AM

Louis "The Walloon" DuBois Aha - here is his immigrant ancestor.

11/2/2012 at 8:11 AM

See the About Me of Louis Du Bois. I only recently paid attention to this family due to my third great aunt Sarah Davis Conover marrying Peter Conover, whose mother was a Du Bois. They raised my gg grandmother, Sarah's half-sister in Franklin, Warren, Ohio in the Jersey Settlement. My great grandmother would go and stay with them.

11/2/2012 at 8:28 AM

So interesting. Dutch families from New York settled Southern New Jersey and then those same families settled areas of Ohio. My connection is that my ggg grandmother was supposedly brought up in the Freehold community with the Mintz and Bennett families, supposedly both "Dutch", although Mintz might have been German. She married a Bennett and had a child. He died, she married a Mintz and had another child. The child of her first marriage married Peter Conover (a Van Kowenhoven and Du Bois descendant). Her maiden name was Davis but it's interesting that she seems to have been associated with the Dutch Reform Church members.

Thanks Hatte Blejer on partial hiatus will make an attempt to find something in the Netherlands :)

What an interesting list! Thanks, Anne-Marie. Very few of my Huguenots I'm currently working on went through Ireland (only one family so far) but as I start new families, I'll check the list to see if they left family behind in Ireland.

11/2/2012 at 11:25 AM

I don't know if you've seen the Pettigrew sites Private User. They went first to Scotland and then to Ireland -- at least Pettigrew did -- I believe Antrim. I put the links in their About Mes. As for my own direct ancestors -- Petticrew -- the family has been arguing about whether they emigrated from Scotland or Ireland but our family story is that they are cousins of the Pettigrew and DNA evidence apparently has just borne this out. Since they settled with the Scotch-Irish and appear to have immigrated with the Scotch-Irish, I would bet 90% that they were in Ireland prior to their immigration to PA and then VA.

Apparently the Pettigrews went to Scotland fairly early.

Yes I am on the look out for the Pettigrews found some in Dublin early 1800's probably also the Huguenot descendants but need to find the first Pettigrew in Ireland and this could indeed be in the Northern part of Ireland.
If I find them I hope to connect them to the Dublin Pettigrews who were all Esquires

11/2/2012 at 1:36 PM

My cousin Bev Kline has done a lot of research on Irish Pettigrews and if you Google Pettigrew and/or Petticrew and Ireland, you'll come across her posts in genealogy forums. When I have time, I'll try to summarize her findings. Our other cousin Gary Petticrew points to records in Scotland as from our ancestors. From what I read about the Pettigrews with a G, some stayed in Scotland and some went to Ireland.

Think I have seen them yes, I noticed the Huguenots went over and back between Scotland and Ireland a lot( the ones in the Northern counties of Ireland) There is a pattern developing

I have ordered three books in my local library about the Irish Huguenots, they need to be send down from the main library but I should have them within a week or so, promising titles with hopefully loads of names and places .

Hatte Blejer on partial hiatus Hatte, I am trying to gather information about the Pettigrew family found mention of the marriage of James born April in Crilly House, that his wife was Mary Higginbotham daughter of Captain George Higginbotham and his wife Rachel from '' The Grange '' Estate not Mary Cochran . Mary was also born in 1713

The family seem to have originated in France allright but it is possible they were already in Scotland in the late 1400's but you probably know that already :)

More records for Collegiate Church of New York here :

11/3/2012 at 2:43 PM

Yes, I've seen Penelope Johnson Allen. I linked the South Carolina Pettigrews' About Me to her site. That was the one I hoped that you had seen.

Very interesting source, the Collegiate Church of New York. I stayed away from New Amsterdam previously but now with the overlap of the Huguenot , Scottish, Ulster Scots, and Dutch both in the Old World and profoundly in the New World, it's relevant to me personally.

Pettigrew married Gibert. Gibert being the founding family of New Bordeaux, the Huguenot colony in South Carolina. And in the books I am reading, they note how William Pettigrew's wife spoke French but William did not understand a word of it since he was by that time Scotch-Irish / American. But the Pettigrews kept their stories about their French heritage, just as my Petticrew family did. I'll find what my great grandmother (Petticrew) told my mother and email it to you.

One thing I'm trying to understand is marriage patterns in the New World. People tended to marry within their own group but Du Bois and Van Kowenhoven were within the same group although Du Bois was Huguenot in origin. Rev. Du Bois was the minister of the Dutch Reform Church in Freehold, Monmouth, NJ.

And the Huguenots in South Carolina married the Scotch-Irish. They were both Presbyterian. Did they attend the same churches?

And in New Jersey were the Bennetts and Mintz Dutch? Why did my ggg grandmother grow up with Bennett and Mintz and marry them. How assimilated were they by that time? Her last name is Davis and the Davis families in Southern New Jersey are said to be Welsh or Irish and to have come from Long Island, NY.

No when I said ' I had seen them'' I meant the forum posts about the Pettigrews.
To be honest I do not have the slightest clue about marriage patterns in the new world , in the Netherlands and here in Ireland it seems that the early Huguenots mainly married their own , the second generation started to mingle a bit more.

Hatte, in South Carolina, by the early 1700's, they WERE worshipping in the same churches.

In my study of Daniel Huger, I using the Clemson thesis [], it becomes clear how this all came to be. The English (or Scots-Irish) settlers felt that the Huguenots got preferential treatment and tried to bar them from trades, public office, etc. The Huguenots responded by petitionin to be British citizens in c.1697.

This gave the Huguenots too much power, so the non-French passed The Church Act of 1706 established Anglicanism as the official state religion of Carolina and required all members of the Commons House of Assembly to conform to the worship and rituals of the Church of England.

The Huguenots met the Scots-Irish girls in church and married them.

11/3/2012 at 6:17 PM

In New Amsterdam and Charleston SC there are still Huguenot churches. But Huguenots out married practically from arrival in the New World - and obviously in New Amsterdam with Dutch origin. I believe Huguenot churches folded into Dutch Reformed.

My Wooldridge (English) family married Huguenot in Virginia. The father at first objected but grandchildren changed his mind.

11/3/2012 at 6:26 PM

Anne-Marie interesting point about the Huguenots being more "to their own" in the UK. I think this might be because of more generations there. In the US there were a couple of dedicated communities - I looked into the ones in NY - but they integrated and assimilated here early and were tremendously respected and needed for their skills and educational level. And frankly Americans were mostly Prostestant "dissenters" in origin so the big issues would have been in Catholic Maryland, not the other colonies.
