Hi My name is Duane Weir, I am a Canadian Born and Bred. Yet I am married to an American. She was born in Nashville, Tennessee, but her father's paternal ancestors are from Schenectady (sp) area of New York (dutch). The last name is VandenBurgh. I was looking for from information on the New York Militia and a General Origen VandenBurgh. He developed the VandenBurgh Volley Gun in the 1860s. But I wanted to see if I could trace him back to The War of 1812 and he role if any in the conflict. I was wondering if he was related to my wife's family. Any information or assistance would be appreciated.
