My Research Note (8/9/20) for Catherine Bevier-54 includes a number of under-sourced children who could be made into respectable profiles if only they had proper sources for their baptismal information. The best source that I know of for this information for citizens of Warwarsing and Rochester is Jean Worden's "The Rochester Reformed Church, 1736-1901," c 1985. This volume (or manuscript??) is difficult to find online; perhaps paying subscribers of Ancestry.com have access to it. Or perhaps someone's local library would have it.

I beg for some WikiTreer with access to do the Bevier and Depuy families a great service by digging out the facts and page numbers and posting them on the appropriate profile pages. Including the parents listed on the baptisms is important here. Finding the marriage records for Benjamin Depuy's three wives would be useful, too.

Is there some other good source of this information I should know about? A few people from Rochester or Warwarsing show up in Hoes or perhaps Vosburgh, but the RDC Church at Rochester ought to have its own volume, surely.

Unfortunately, many New York church records are not online. The records for the first few churches (at least those records that are still extant) are free and online, but churches established later (such as Wawarsing) are often not available.

Have you seen https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Records_of_the_Reformed_Dutch_Church_at_Wawarsing_Vol_I , https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Wawarsing_Hamlet%2C_New_York , and related pages? At least one other member was working hard to find Wawarsing records and document information here.

Good stuff you're introducing me to. I love the Warwarsing hamlet page. The Warwarsing source material looks helpful, too, and it establishes Bevier Depuy's bonafides. Thank you so much.

I have a copy of Worden's Rochester book. It only has baptisms for Benjamin's children from his first two wives and his marriage to Antje Bruyn. There is a 10 year gap in the marriage records from 1780-1790, so it's possible Benjamin's marriage to Catherine Bevier did happen in Rochester and is just missing.

I also have a PDF of Wawarsing baptism records printed in the "New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Record". I found 6 children of Benjamin and Catherine there, born between 1791 and 1802, as well as a baptism the were witnesses to.

Do you want me to create profiles for Catherine's children with the birth and baptism dates? Or do you want me to give you the info some other way?

Do either of those books have a Daniel York getting married around 1700-1720 or him passing away at some point?
Daniel York doesn't appear in either book.

Wonderful to have help when I was lost.  Thanks to Smith-62120 I found my way to a Warwarsing source and have baptisms for Elizabeth (1788), Bevier (1791),  Catrina (1793), and Blandina (1799), and also have Benjamin and Catharina's wedding.  But if you can supply me via private message with the information for any other of Catharine's children and the Rochester church information for the first two marriages and children (very few, I know), I'll be very grateful and can carry on from there. Thank you so much.
