  • Notes 
    • Hello Mr. Ron, I found your family tree site and I have a bit of information you might like. I am putting together a Lansing family tree for my step children. Their father passed away recently, but he had shown me a box of family papers to help with the project.

      In it was an indenture (the original copy) for a young boy named John Van Rensselaer. He was being indentured to John G. and Lydia Yates in 1816.

      I was puzzled to figure how we had this paper, although the late Mr. Lansing said that there were Yates names sprinkled all over his ancestry.

      Well, your site identifies our Lydia and John G.Yates. John G. Yates has a set of grandparents, Christopher Johnnes Yates and Catherine Lansing. Catherine Lansing's parents are Evert and Anne Cooper Lansing.

      Evert and Anne Cooper Lansing are the 6th Great Grandparents of my stepchildren.

      There is also a Cornelia Lansingh, mother of John G. Yates. She could be from he family of Abraham Lansingh, the people who founded Lansingburgh and who used the extra h in the name. They would be some sort of cousins. I would get a headache trying to sort that out.

      Well, anyway, I gave the original indenture to my stepson, but I made a color copy, If you would like to see it I could scan and e-mail it to you. It has the signatures on it, John G. Yates and Lydia Yates, although I am suspicious that Lydia might not have signed it herself, since the handwriting looks like John's. It also has all the terms of the indenture, which are very interesting to read. Kay Lansing 9/9/2010
