Cemetery

"History of Washington County, Pennsylvania," Boyd Crumrine, page 695:

Van Voorhis family - "A spot of ground was selected by Daniel Van Voorhis overlooking Pigeon Creek long ago for his remains and those of his kindred. Four generations of the name are in that cemetery, incorporated and made perpetual by the laws of the land."

The Hazelkirk (Van Voorhis) Cemetery is located in Hazelkirk, Carroll Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania, 1/4 mile south on Shannon Road. The cemetery is on a hill to the east of this road. It is high on a hilltop overlooking Hazelkirk. Coming from Monongahela, take LR route 62175 west, then LR 62016 (bears to the right former LR 62175). This will lead you into the village of Hazelkirk. Cemetery may be seen from the eastern approach to the village - south side of the road. (from http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pawashin/cemetery/voorhis_cem.html)

Extract from Alfred Creigh, HISTORY OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, B. Singerly, Harrisburg PA, 1871.

(From, "The Old and New Monongahela" page 187 written by John S Van Voorhis, a grandson of Daniel Van Voorhis.) "Daniel born July 8, 1738, was the ancestor of the family in Western Pennsylvania. He was a seafaring man, following navigation most of his life; he was master of several merchant ships o fwhich he was part owner. During the revolution he was taken prisoner three different times by the British, and each time suffering a total loss of his vessel. During an engagement one time a stanchion of the vessel against which he was leaning was carried away by a cannon ball. With two other captains as prisoners, he was taken to some Spanish island for safe keeping, from the dangers of which they escaped only to be recaptured. In 1764 Daniel was married to Mrs. Sarah Britt, who was a daughter of Coerte Van Voorhees, of Fishkill, NY. She died September 15, 1777. By his wife he had two children, Samuel Newton and Sarah. He married as his second wife Mary Newton, July 12, 1780. We are not informed just when Daniel left Long Island and settled in Rancocas Creek, New Jersey, twelve miles from Philadelphia, but it was somewhere about 1780. By this second marriage were born John, Daniel, Abraham and Mary. We have on a fly leaf of a little history of New York, printed in London in 1787, theres words in his own handwriting: "Moved my family out into the backwoods in the month of October, in the year of our Lord 1786."

Daniel Van Voorhis In 1785 he had been out himself and selected his new home. He brought with him in 1786 his second wife and his children born to her as above mentioned.

He located on the farm now owned by John Van Voorhis, in Carroll township, Washington county, PA, where his wife, Mary N., died October 31, 1789, and hers was the first burial in the Van Voorhis cemetery, his daughter, Mary, being the second. She was born at the new home January 30th, 1788, and died August 11th, 1789. Daniel first lived in the log cabin east of the well known spring, where yet may be seen traces of it. He occupied this cabin when he married. May 3d, 1791, his third wife, in the person of Nancy Myers, and in it were born their two children, Elizabeth and Isaac. Whilst Isaac was a mere youth the hewed log house was built that stood above the cabin nearly on the spot where is now the brick house of John Van Voorhis. Daniel died February 21st 1819, in the homestead, and his wife, Nancy, died February 17th, 1840, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Samuel Frye." Daniel Van Voorhees was also known as Daniel Van Voorhees. Daniel Van Voorhees Serverd in the militia Capt. John W. Van Benshoten's company, Col. Roswell Hopkins 6th Regiment in 1778. Daniel Van Voorhees left a will on August 18, 1817 at Fallow Twp., Washington County, Pennsylvania.
