Smarty Pants dance smarty pants dance.... oh my!!!! I'm so excited!  Yowzers! Yowzers!

Abrams B Bale, born 1781 died 1849 in Lewiston, Niagara NY

We have been working on him for decades, tons of us.   And at one time the B stood for Brinkerhoff, and Bartus and whatever...  So I removed the B.

He married a Nettie Sticker.  

BUT  I found this on ancestry today and I know this is it but don't know how to sort it out.  Sussanah Abramse Brinkerhoff  and It's way back there in the 1600's... and I know I'm not sharing much

But here on Wikitree abrams-2

Abram and Nettie named a son William Hoog Bale or Bayle.   And I've looked at Hoogland over and over.   But I think whats happened is I don't understand how Dutch names work, as they switch around and around.   

I'm so excited I had to post this.  But I don't think I can figure it out quite right, how'd he Abram get  to Bayle, or Bale?

I'm afraid to open another window and find his number and loose this, so I'm Bale-77 and if you follow me back, that's where I'm stuck on Abram.  Nettie was his 2nd wife.

Bale-119  Okay this is Abrams Id

To me it's looking like we might be coming from  Martin Cowenhouven w june 20 1686 Susana Abrahamse Brinkerhoff  somehow, because Abram ends up Abram Brinkerhoff Bale or Bayle. 

Oh yes, it is said in family tradition that he sometimes went by Henry.

oh my this is exciting, okay so this fits somehow.



It will be awhile before I figure it out and I have seen some folks work on it, THANK YOU!   I purchased a book calle the Colony of New netherland, A Dutch Settement in Seventeeenth Century America so that I can get a grasp on how things worked.   Having an understanding will help me grasp it.   Some folks have shared a dutch heritage list from ancestry with transcription errors.   So I figure, I'll learn to understand and then dive in this for the rest of the year on this.   We have a Mulbry or Mulbrey Y dna match in Holland on familytree dna, which I don't understand at all.   I think I'd rather lean and read history than science.   Haven't found a link for that yet.  But wanted to say I have noticed some help on family search and want to say THANKS.
