About Rebecca Vandergrift

Rebecca's children were all baptized at the Dutch Reformed Church, New Amsterdam (later Manhattan, NYC). In 1696, Rebecca, together with her eight surviving children and their spouses, joined a migration of Dutch settlers from New York and Long Island south to Burlington, NJ. In 1697 the VANDERGRIFTs crossed the Delaware River and purchased four farms totaling 757 acres in Bensalem Township, Bucks Co., PA from Joseph GOWDEN.
