    From notes and diagrams of George H. Van Epps (b. 1847)
    written abt. 1924 or 1925, for his granddaughter, Gwendolyn
    Van Epps (b. 1918): (transcribed by George Fanucci Jr., her son.)

    "The Early Van Epps Family came to America about 1660 from
    Delfe, Holland. [The Dutch immigrant] Dirk Van Epps [was]
    massacred [in] 1690."

    [His son] John Dirkoy Van Epps [had] two children [who were]
    killed in [the Schenectady] massacre."

    [John Dirkoy's other sons were] John Baptist [and] Evert Van Epps."

    John Baptist was taken prisoner to Canada in 1690 [and] escaped
    [in] 1693 [and] returned to Schenectady."

    [Evert's son, also named] John Baptist Van Epps married
    Anna Vedder, May 1761."

    [My grandfather] John Van Epps was a soldier in the Revolutionary
    Army, [he] married Jane Van Vleck in 1795, [they] had ten sons."

    I have 15 pages of VAN EPPS family history, and a family tree
    diagram going back to 1660, which were handwritten by
    George Hamilton Van Epps, for my mother, Gwendolyn Irma Van Epps,
    in the mid-1920's.

    Alice Virginia VAN EPPS PRITCHARD (living grand-daughter of
    George H VAN EPPS has said that he must have died in 1931, not 1921.
    She remembers him being alive, and she was born in 1924.
    She said that she was about 6 or 7 when he died. (1930 or 1931?)

    Married Elisabeth SHANKLE in 1881
    (from notes of George H. VAN EPPS, handwritten ABT. 1920)
