Y-DNA shows a close relationship between my half-brother and a a great-grandson of Daniel (Titus) Van Buskirk.  It also confirms my half-brother is a true male-line descendent of the original Van Buskirk, Laurens Andriessen Van Buskirk.  I believe Daniel was a true Van Buskirk.

Daniel was my third Great Grandfather: Daniel, to Joseph, to Douglas, to Cecil, to my father Kenneth.  We have questioned this for years as Daniel's father, Joseph had listed language in his Will that sounded like he had been adopted.  So thank you for this information.
Glad to make your acquaintance.  It is a cousin of yours, last name Carmer, to whom my half-brother is closely related.  I created a tree of his line on Ancestry.  I ran into some uncertainty with Joseph, as there were multiple in the same era, one who died during the Civil War.  Also some tragedies...a young girl badly burned, a man killed by lightning.
Hello Again, The Gentleman you stated killed by lightening was my Great-Great Grandfather  Joseph VanBuskirk the little girl that was burned was my Grandfather's Sister Mary (Allene) VanBuskirk.  Both buried in Gypsum Kansas.  I believe we have been contacted by a  Carmer, I believe it was a Kathleen.  Her father and my father were half brothers.  My sister and I were wondering why Buskirk.  Did the Van get dropped by your side of the family?
