We have assembled a number of documents here to aid in family history research and enable sharing of information. Nearly all of these documents are in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), so the user will need to have Adobe Acrobat or similar PDF reader software. This page will be updated regularly as documents are added. These resources are organized by when they were added to the site, with the oldest documents appearing first.
Presumed Descendants of William Rublier and Abigail Brush (Adobe PDF – 1.4 MB) – Cindy Walcott’s compilation (May 2007). Please note Cindy’s comments: I think this works for our present purposes.

One of our researchers (Gloria Waldron Hukle) provided a news release regarding 2007’s 350th anniversary recognition of the Flushing Remonstrance–a plea for religious freedom sent to Peter Stuyvesant, director general of the Dutch Colony of New Netherland. The Bowne House Historical Society is looking for descendants of the signers, as well as Stuyvesant and his sheriff, Resolved Waldron. The news release is available here. Why would the Roblees care about this? Because one of Resolved Waldron’s descendants–William Waldron–married Judah Brodt (Bradt) in 1804 and produced 14 Waldrons, four of whom married Roblees. Gloria has written a brief article on the connections.
