Quite confused. My ancestors were Lena Consulas/Gonzales and Leur Kuykendall/Cuykendall from New York state around the Ulster area. I am having trouble with this family due to the various spellings. Lena was descended from a Spanish Puritan man who left spain and married a Dutch lady in New York state. She then marries a dutch man- Leur Kuykendall. However, when I try to find Lena's parents I come up with different names and various dates. I have seen her parents as Emmanuel, Manuel, Don Manuel, Manuel Duk for her father and for her mother three different women: Rebecca Westvael, Marritje Davids, and Rymerig Quick. What gives? None of the names or dates match up for these people. On some ancestor family trees it has Lena dead while her children are still being born and on one her supposed mother is only a few years older than her. Some even have Lena as Helena but that persons dates definately don't match. I think it would have been simpler to put Junior and S! enior after every Manuel and use the full proper names instead of short versions of the names. Who is who? I am trying to trace the Spanish line back to what I believe were Spanish Jews who fled persecution. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
