Hi everyone

Just a few lines to say hello to other quackenbush's. Would like to hear from others; just to see how many there may be in the province of Ontario or even country. You don't hear this name very often from here in Sarnia Ontario. Just found out today there is another Bev Quackenbush living in the city of Sarnia, Ontario. I have lived here for 34 years and this is a first time hearing this today.
Hope to hear from you's soon.

It is kind of a strange way fate has allowed me to talk with long and distant relatives.
Growing up I lived with my Mother, my Sister and my grandparents.
The people besides myself who could share the Quackenbush name with me was only my sister.
My parents got divorced when i was real young, but for some reason i remember it all.
Surprising considering i was a year and a half old. Anywhoo...

My father lived in another state, and my sister and i would get to see him every other weekend.
My Father, my sister, and my uncle were the only relatives i knew with our name.
My cousins who were Named Quackenbush, aren't blood... But that doesnt make them less of family.
So as far as i knew when i was just a wee lad I and my close kin were the only Quackenbush's to exist.

Then about 15 years later i started working in acting and at one of the auditions
i went to the casting director told me that i had a very intersting name and its
a name he could never forget becuase his teacher (35 years prior) was Mrs. Quackenbush.
So from then on i knew that there was at least one more of my kind out in the world.
Then I got a job at a local hardware store. So i automatically get employee discounts.
Well, the way you get the discount is by typing your name into the computer/register
and it shows a list of people with your name. I thought "Hey! this will be easy. I'll be the only one in here."
I was WRONG. There were 2 others. 2 may not normally be a large number, but when you see it
in a small business like ours it kind of stands out. Then... one night i got really bored...
(probably cuz i was exremely ill.)... and i started typing out names of people i
knew into the address bar. First was My girlfriend. Then My own name. Then My girlfriend's
brother (who happens to be one of my best friends). and then i typed in Quackenbush...
and Now i know there at least 15 more Quackenbush's in the world. But there's
always one thing that bugged me about this name. NO ONE CAN SPELL IT CORRECTLY! It's
said the same way it's written. It's phoenetic. how hard could it be?!?!
I Got it worst in High School my diploma had my name spelled incorrectly.
both of my diplomas. (we got a regular size one and a wallet size)
Now, I see according to the history of our name that i really shouldnt worry
about a different variation of my name, but then that's like calling someone named John, Jon.

In any case, I've learned more from this site about my family history then i have from
my dead grandparents or from my father. But No matter what i still think the Quackenbush name holds more than just whats there. I believe all Quackenbush's are "outside the box" thinkers. i was raised that way, and by reviewing this site, it seems im not the only one.

It would be intersting to see a Family Tree on this site so everyone could trace back to their origins.

I am willing to share my info if anyone else is up for it?

And if there was a guestbook for members of the family to sign in and leave what ever they wanted to there. Meanings of Names, war stories, political and scientific advancements etc etc etc.

Well Anywhoo... i leave you with my family quote. "Carpe' Diem"

~Joshua T. Quackenbush

I am interested in family history of the Quitman(n) family. One member, Federica Elisabeth Quitman *1784 in Curacao, living in Rhinebeck NY, married Peter W. Quackenboss 1807 in Schoharie NY. I wonder about their children (at least) 4, and possible continuation of this branch up to the present time. About Frederica E Quitman and hr family, we know quite a lot. Please, can anyone help me??

Ryan Quackenbush

, February 8th, 2004, Amsterdam, ny

I never thought I'd have a website devoted to my last name. My ancestry is deep rooted, i see.

I remember when i was in elementary school, in our library there was a book by an author named Robert Quackenbush. When you're 6 and you see someone else has the difficult last name to spell, it's rough to comprehend.
When i got into middle school, i met two friends named Christina and Nicole who were sisters also with the last name Quackenbush, and their aunt Katherine taught at the school. I, however, have no relation to them that i know of.
I also found out that there was someone going to school only an hour from me that has the same name as me as well. I was kinda bummed about that. We're getting numerous here in upstate NY.

Take pride in the name! It's a conversation piece!

I visited the HM Quackenbush Co. a few years ago. At the time I was interested in the bicycle, hanging on the wall of their front office. I have two Quackenbush rifles, both are "rim fire" One has the detachable wire stock and the other has a wood stock. They are not in the best of condition. I also have some nut cracker and pick sets -old and late ones.I learned my name was Quckenbush when I was 12 years old and I am very proud of being a Quackenbush who dates back to the original family from Holland

it's a name you don't hear often, but it seems that a lot of people i've talked to have met a Quackenbush in their lifetime. I understand the family name is on things from rifles to air hoses. It's pretty amazing. One of the companies my work has a contract with has the name Quackenbush. Didn't realize how common the name was.

Excellent Site!!
I have lived in the Edmonton area all my life (37 Years) and for the longest time, my immediate family and I were the only Quackenbushes listed in the directory. It only been in the last year or two that I have noticed a few unfamiliar names.


Quitmann, Dieter

, May 27th, 2004, Berlin, Germany

Frederica Quitman, of Rhinebeck NY, married Peter Quackenboss in 1807 (?). I am searching descendants of this couple, because I'm searching generally for Quitman descendants as a part of our Quitman - family. Who knows about Walter Henry Quackenboss and the siblings, and about their children etc? Thanks Dieter.



, June 15th, 2004, Hartford, Connecticut

As I read through these entries I see there are quite a few Quackenbushes in Michigan and Ontario. This is news to me.
I imagine these areas must have had a concentration of Dutch settlers.

Here's what I know or have heard:

I've always know that there were many many in upstate NY from Dutchess County North through Albany County and Northern New Jersy too. In the Albany area it is actually a very well known name. If memory serves, the oldest building in Albany (which is the second oldest city in the US after St. Augustine, FLA) is called Quackenbush House. It is on Quackenbush Square near the Hudson River. It was built in the mid 1600's.

The Quackenbush's were not wealthy but they were patroons or land owners which put them in an upper class. Their business was a tavern/inn in the Dutch Trading post of Fort Orange (now known as Albany).

Many Quackenbush's are/were Catholic, but I'm not sure if that's a result of changes in the demographics in the Albany area which is vastly Catholic.

Over the years the Quackenbush's have been in many businesses - manufacture of nut crackers/bottle openers etc, a lumber yard, a department store, manufacture of bicycles and guns, an architecture/engineering firm.

Hello to you all. Our branch of the Quackenbushes came from the Detroit area after they migrated from Canada.Bill's two sisters and his late mom and dad were born in Canada, around London and Strathroy. There are still relatives over there and two of our kids live in the states, one in Nebraska and the other in Florida. Hope to here from one and all.

, July 25th, 2004, Halifax , Nova Scotia , Canada

the Ontario Quackenbushes originally migrated during the American Revolution and also during the War of 1812 . My branch of the family came across Lake Ontario during the War of 1812 and landed on Pictou Island ..they made their way into Eastern Ontario from there .There is in fact a Quackenbush Lake in Eastern Ontario.

I'm interested in learning about the descendants of John Lyman Quakenbush and Angeline Margetta Collar, who would have been married to each other beginning in about 1860 or so. My understanding is they had two sons, but I don't have their names.

Angeline Collar's father, Ornan Collar, is the brother of Daniel Northway Collar, my great-great-grandfather.

I was born in Wyckoff, NJ in 1933 as the 3rd son of Roy Peter Quackenbush and Mary Ricker. My wife was browsing a geneology site when I happened to notice the name Mary Ricker. Clicking on it we not only discovered it was my mother but that it was part of our family tree going back to Pieter Janzoon Quackenbosch born in Holland in 1590. We attended a Quackenbush family reunion at Warwick N.Y. in August of 1960 which was attended by hundreds of Quackenbushs from all over the country. A typewritten publication titled "The Quackenbush Family Courant, Vol.1, No 1" was handed out and I still have an original copy. I wonder if any of your readers attended that reunion.

Hi! This is sooo weird that there's this many Quackenbush's. I always thought my immediated family were the only ones. I always heard that there was and author with the last name Quackenbush, but that was it. Of course all throught grade school you hear every nickname under the sun for your name and now i think it's hialrious to think about all the nicknames. And then with my first name being Katrinna..it was no one could spell either name. It's like come on people, just look at it, it's spelled just like it sounds.

Anyways just wanted to say hi to all of my other distant relatives! My grandparents are Ruth and Goldie Quackenbush (goldie has passed away) and my dad is Barney Quackenbush. Ok well hope to see a family tree one day on here. Bye!

Quackenbush's Dept Store was in Paterson,NJ. It started as a small dry goods store on Main Street. It grew to a large department store after the Quackenbush family sold it. The store was ultimately purchased by the Allied Department Store Chain who also owned a chain of stores in the NY, NJ area called Sterns. For advertising purposes it was later called Stern's Quackenbush. I believe the Quackenbush name was ultimately dropped.

If you're a Quackenbush, it seems everyone else you come in contact with in your daily lives will tell you, "I knew a Quackenbush back in..... or I went to school with a Quackenbush, etc" or ask, "do you have a relative in ....?"
So, we do not have an unusual name because everyone knows of one somewhere or other, but isn't it amazing that we are all related in some way or another?

I am going to Holland in January and I am wondering if anyone has any infromation, especially Quackenbushes in Holland that are related to my family. Thank you, Shelley Jackson 503-651-3241

My grandfather, Thomas Henry Quackenbush was born in 1855 in Kemptville, Ontario. He married Bertha Victoria Phillips in 1889 and they went to Brandon, Manitoba to live.

As a single man, Thomas had established a homestead in Aweme near Milford and Brandon, Manitoba. He received a Western Land Grant and proved up the farm in 1883-1888. He returned to Grenville county, Ontario and married Bertha.
They had six children, but only two survived infancy, Harry Lorne who was killed in WWI and Russell Chester Quackenbush born in 1900. Russell is my father. He came to Michigan in 1921.

Robert A. Quackenbush

, September 5th, 2006, Clarkesville, Ga

Most Quackenbushs in the US are descendants of Pieters son Reynier. However, an Isaac Quackenbush emigrated from the Netherlands to Michigan shortly before the Civil War. It is possible that Quackenbushs in Michigan and California are descended from Isaac rather that Pieter. I have information on my line to the present but no info on Isaac.

If you are going to Holland to try to find a Quackenbush, good luck. The name has died out in Holland and no Quackenbushs are known to exist in Holland. Your best bet is to start with everything you can pry out of relatives. From there, try the Church of the Latter Day Saints. They have geneology librarys in every church. They also have a web site.

If you are researching the Quackenbush name in the Netherlands, try searching for, "Kwakkenbos."

"Quackenbush" is the Anglicanized or Americanized spelling.

My Dad has always been very proud of his surname; but I have to say growing up with it was a bit tough, although being born with the permanent nicknames of Susie Q and Sue Quack is kind of cool, and no none ever forgets it. I love the way people react to my maiden name, and it's funny that I still have to spell my married name for everyone because even "Weeks" is mutilated. One of the things I found amusing on the site was the posting about not being able to find the Q on a keyboard when typing; I remember first learning to type in high school (I probably just dated myself) and being the last one in the class to be able to type my name because Q was the last letter we learned. This is a great site - Thanks!

Hi. I am English and have been studying my maternal ancestors. They were called FLITTON. In 1867, James Walby Flitton and his wife Marion Westrope and six children crossed the Atlantic and made home in the area of Sabula and Walnut Grove. They settled and of course their children grew up, married and they all lived in the area. their youngest child was Eleanor Dorothea Flitton who was born on 10 Dec 1874 at Springfield, Greene Co, Missouri. She married Roy Quackenbush during the late 1890s and had a daughter Beatrice. I believe she (Beatrice) may have married a Theo Langton. I think Roy Quackenbush died in 1999 but I am unclear as to whether this was the husband of Eleanor or possibly a descendant.
I hope you do not mind me writing like this - once you start on the trail of a family tree, the roots seem to stretch forever and whereever.
Anyway, I would be delighted to hear from you and to know whether you can identify any of the good people described above. I am hoping very much that there may be relatives living today who are direct descendants of Eleanor Flitton and Roy Quackenbush.
Kind regards
David Watkins

My wife and I recently returned from living and working overseas for the past 28 years. The only place that we ran into the family name in our travels was in the Bahamas. Following are two stories about the Bahamas Quackenbushes.

There was a doctor Quackenbush at one time who practiced in Nassau, probably about 40 years ago. He delivered a large number of Bahamian babies during his practice. As soon as you mention to a older white Bahamian that you are a Quackenbush, they tell the story about Dr. Quackenbush and the mother who took her young daughter to him for an examination. The daughter was complaining of abdominal pains. After the examination the mother asked the doctor for his diagnosis. Dr. Quackenbush replied, madame, I am sorry to report that your daughter is pregnant. The mother protested that this could not be so, as her young daughter had never been with a man. The next thing that she new, Dr. Quackenbush was intently staring out of the window as if looking for something. The mother asked, \"Doctor, what are you doing?\" Dr. Quackenbush turned and casually replied, \"You know madame, that last time that a thing like this happened, there was a star in the East.\"

We also ran into the name Quackenbush in Hopetown in the Abacos. There is evidently a Quackenbush family who owns a home there. There is also a park in Hopetown named Taylor Quackenbush Recreation park. As the story goes, Taylor Quackenbush was a three year old child who was playing in the road and was hit and killed by the first automobile on the island. The park was named in remembrance of young Taylor.

Best regards to all Quackenbushes - Nick and Alicia Quackenbush.

Although I am a Quackenbush, I know little about my paternal side. My father, James Rufus Quackenbush, Jr. (1946-2005) did not extract much history from his father James Rufus Quackenbush, Sr. James Rufus Quackenbush, Sr. had a brother William (Bill) Quackenbush and a sister Grace Quackenbush. James Rufus, William (Bill) and Grace were raised in the Woodbridge/Perth Amboy, NJ area. James Rufus, William and Grace were born in the late 1910’s early 1920’s.

James Rufus Quackenbush, Sr. married Hilda Marko and had four children: James Rufus, Jr (1947-2005), Carol (1952-1981), David (1956- ) and Daniel (1956- ) Quackenbush. I believe all children were born in Perth Amboy, NJ.

William (Bill) Quackenbush of Sewaren, NJ married and had several children. William (Bill) died in the early 1990’s.

Grace married and moved to northern California. My father James Rufus Quackenbush, Jr visited one of Grace's children in Northern California in the late 1990’s. Grace deceased prior to the visit.

The \"Quack\" isn\'t a duck sound, it\'s a small heron that lives in bushes.
During the short occupation by Napoleon Boneparte in the Netherlands, many family names were altered, shortened or just made up. \"two brothers reported ate the civil servant to register their family name. First one say\'s: my name is Janssen. Clerk writes that down. Second brother says: the same(ditto). That would be his family name ever after\"

I am writing this in reference to you dry ice cannon. I was wondering where I could get a 100 PSI filter bag housing. I have searched the internet with no luck. Also I was wondering if PVC chamber would work instead. Please e-mail your response to ajeds (at) zoominternet (dot) net



Erik Quackenbush

, March 5th, 2007, Lake Forest, IL

You can obtain the X100 filter housings from filterbag.com. I do not recommend using PVC. It is brittle and will not withstand repeated pressure and temperature changes.

Disclaimer: a dry ice cannon is a dangerous thing. Wear gloves when handling dry ice. Always wear safety glasses. Wear hearing protection when launching. Make sure they are not illegal in your jurisdiction.

Carie its Doug your ex from like 1998 to 2001ish. I made it through two wars and the only thing that kept me alive is that maybe one day I might just find you in my living room in my log cabin. I know things were rough between I and you, I know I did not pay enough attention to you; I know so many things went wrong and for that I'm sorry. You have no idea how much you meant to be and I know why…

Because I did not tell you enough. 24 months in the middle of the dessert gives you time to think…that is after the fear leaves your body…What I did over there and what I see I wish not on my worst enemy.

Its now 2007 and I still hurt. I joined the army for you. I wanted to be able to provide for you and take care for you. And I want you to know that I still have the Friends Forever thing off your necklace. And so many other things all your letters…

Letters I never sent you…letters I wrote and re-wrote and never sent. After the wars my life has not been the same. Every happy memory I have was with you and those memories make me cry.

How can something 7 yrs ago still make me cry? Its because the way we parted. I would have given you anything Carie and you know that I would have done anything for you. Why did you lie to me about your friend’s car being broken and needing the money to get it fixed?

The thing that bothers me the most is that as quick as you came into my life, you left it. Not a bye, not a see ya later, not a word. I’m sure I am the last thing on your mind. But let it be known, you will always have a place in my heart.

Hello fellow Quackenbush’s,

The Quackenbush name is alive and well in Wisconsin. I hope to see more Quackenbush’s from the Wisconsin area offer input to this site. How they’ll find it I’ll never know, but if I did by chance, maybe they will as well. I can tell you a bit about the Quackenbush’s from this area though. No specifics since this is just a comment area, so…
In the early 1800’s the Quackenbush’s were some of the first pioneers to enter this region and establish resident farms after the waves of Swedish, Bohemian and German loggers moved further north in pursuit of larger pineries to satisfy their log mills. In the early 1900’s you would see Quackenbush’s in politics and public positions, often being mentioned in historic documents as being involved in community functions and events. You would see Quackenbush men serving as Constables and City Board members, others were well known for professions as masons, shop smiths and barbers, while the Quackenbush women were often seen mentioned as teachers or mid-wives in their communities. Through the Depression and after the world wars, there was change in the air and Wisconsin Quackenbush’s began to sell their farms and move to larger communities to become business owners, doctors and lawyers. If there’s one thing about a Quackenbush, they are not afraid of the unknown, and they have a can do attitude, don’t they?
There’s quite a few Quackenbush’s living throughout the WI, MN and IL region, yet I never seem to actually bump into any for some reason. I tend to do a lot of traveling throughout the states, and I can attest as well, when you talk to long time locals from their area, they often mention "They once knew a Quackenbush" and more times than not, the memory is fond. And like many other Quackenbush‘s, I often find it easier to relent to their inner wishes and suggest the Quackenbush they’ve mentioned, is distantly related in one way, form or another.
One thing I’ve noticed, since everyone is discussing familiar oddities, is that I am sure many of you go through the same rituals as my family of six does when they travel. One of the first things we like to do when we reach a hotel and we’ve had a chance to settle down a bit is, to take out the phone book in the room and look up the various Quackenbush’s, Quakenbush’s, Quackenboss’s, etc. I think you’d all be pleasantly surprised to know that if you’re ever in need of a Dentist, a Lawyer or a Banker while out of town, you only have to look as far as the Q’s in the yellow pages…
Anyhow, I’d like to thank Erik C. Quackenbush for creating the Quackenbush website. I would also think that this was a family project with a lots of outside input and insight from others to boot, so hopefully the thanks to Erik will suffice for the others as well. The appreciation is heart felt. I’ve just spent a pleasant evening viewing all the hard work that went into this site, as well as all the great comments that’s been sent in from throughout the world, and I’m hard pressed to remember a better time spent on memorializing the Quackenbush name in a self evident way. Makes the world a little smaller place, knowing there are Quackenbush’s scattered throughout, just waiting to bump into the likes of me with such a unique name such as their own.

I am wondering if there is a connection of Peter(Philip) married to Joanna Bebee who are buried at the Vennachar Cemetery. As well, I am looking for information on their son-George Drayper Quackenbush who served in WW1. He was born in Frontenac County-Ontario(village-Wensly). His next of kin is listed as P. Quackenbush(Whitney) Ontario. The family must have left this area and moved to Whitney and returned as their burial site is here. George is buried at Vimy Ridge-but reference is made to him on their grave stone.
Any info will be appreciated.

, May 3rd, 2007, New York City

I came across this site a couple years ago, but had not signed the guest book. After a coworker asked about my name today, I recalled the site and... here I am (and forwarding links to her). My father is Harold Ruhl Quackenbush, born and raised in Detroit. His father was Harold Wilbur Quackenbush. However, I was born and raised in the Finger Lakes Area of New York (my father relocated to where my mother was raised). After much youthful wanderlust, I now reside in New York City (Astoria, in the borough of Queens, to be precise), and work as a legal assistant, freelance book editor, and a soon-to-be-published novelist.

The site is a wonderful resource of information regarding the background and history of our inimitable family name. It is also, as I mentioned, the perfect place to direct people curious about the name, as well.

Many thanks.

-Craig (van) Quackenbush

Great to read all the "do you know XYX Quackenbush in..." stories. In most companies I've worked, no one reads beyond the last name. I routinely get all Quackenbush correspondence in my organization--including a string of reimbursement checks from a sales rep in San Fran when I was working outside Boston. Yes, I returned them.

My maiden name and I am SO glad I never changed it. After getting teased in grade school, I figure I'd earned the privilege of keeping it.

And, yes, when asked "Do you spell that Gua.. or Crack.." I simply say, Just like it sounds. Quack like a duck, in , and bush like a small tree. Never fails to make a friend or get a smile.

My nickname--EQUACK

HI.I marrid a Q. in BROCKPORT NY.....jAMES Cecil Q. He had a twin brother John Henry Q. (he later changed the last name to Bush)....Their dad was HENRY CECIL Q. and he married Mary.... MR Q was from MANITOULIN ISLAND in CANADA and moved to Brockport NY....There were lots of QUACKENBUSHES on the island ...some of the "elders" insisted that the correct spelling of the name was QUESCHINBACH...note it was a long time ago in the 1960.s that I saw the spelling ...phonically it was Quesch in bach. TO MICHAEL from BROCKPORT NY ....you must be related....cause my husbands family never got along either...seems they thrived on quarreling..Jim and John had a brother ELDRED wife Marion they had a small dairy farm on lake road. There was also a brother EVERET,sisters ELSIE and MARY there may have been one more brother?? I left Brockport where the Quackenbush name was rare...there were 2 Quackenbush's in walla walla and lots of them in the Portland Oregon area. Have any of you seen the old western with a wagon train traveling west and through out the flick you here the phrase "look for the grave of Jim Quackenbush" My exhusband James said he was in Army Reserves with a fellow that was in movie business they were pals and I guess thats how he happened to use that phrase in the movie. Well bye all......if we are related...give a holler on the e mail.

Very interesting site, I find it a blast finding out more about my name and other stories that come with it. I also find that everyone seems to get along, if you follow the tree back far enough, if it were possible, then perhaps we all do come from the same tree. I was getting married so my wife had a website put up just to make things easier for out of town guest, and I think we had about 5 e-mails from Quackenbush\'s from across North America just to say congrats. I thought that was really cool. So to everyones else, we are all lucky to have this name, and I carry it proud

Amanda Evans Quackenbush

, June 29th, 2007, Nashville, TN

Hello, fellow Q's! I am the daughter of James Edwin Quackenbush and Karen Elizabeth Evans, and my paternal grandparents are Leland and Elizabeth Quackenbush of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

My grandfather (who was a professor of engineering for UM) did the genealogy for our family and figured out that we go back to the original Pieter Q in the 17th century. As a history PhD student, I have a special appreciation for our longevity here in America, and I have always been proud to bear the name. My favorite nicknames have been \"Duckinshrub\" and most especially \"QB,\" because I am a huge football fan! My biggest pet peeve is when people leave out the \"c\" in my name.

In our branch we often refer to a family trait we call the \"Q factor,\" which seems to be a permanent part of our genetic make-up: all of us are opinionated, stubborn, and hate to admit when we are wrong! Sure does makes for lively conversation around the dinner table. ;)

Best of luck and love to all the Quackenbushes of the world.

Robert F. Quackenbush

, July 23rd, 2007, Miamisburg, Ohio

Yet another Quackenbush checking in. My dad is Charles W. Quackenbush of Fort Edward, NY. He enlisted in the USAF back in the 40's(then known as the Army Air Corp) and saw the world, eventually collecting a wife and four kids. He retired from the USAF in Dayton, OH and worked for the University of Dayton for many years. Retirement was kind to him as he never had a financial worry and maintained relative good health until called before our Lord. Sadly he passed a decade ago and he is buried at the St Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Ft Edward along with his bride, Irmgard. I am the 3rd child of that fortunate union. I graduated from Miami University(the real one, in Ohio! Seriously folks, Miami was a University when Florida still belonged to Spain!) anyways, I graduated in 1983 and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. Ten years later after collecting my very own bride as well as four children of my own, I left the Marine Corps to pursue interests that didn't involve getting shot at while in a sandy place. But I missed the camaraderie of the Marine Corps... So I joined the Reserves since, back then, whoever even considered an activation order? Well, "My recruiter lied to me"!!! I was activated to support Operation Iraqi Freedom and went back to that God-forsaken armpit of the world for the second time. I left Iraq for the last time in May, 2003 determined not to give Achmet a third chance at my hide and retired from the Marines with 20 years of service. I have been working in the Dayton area ever since. I have two kids in college, one at Miami and one at Ohio State, and two kids still working their way through the local schools.

By and large, life has been very, very good to me! Yes, I got teased as a kid but I think that was just the envy talking. Those poor kids with boring last names like Smith and Jones knew they were missing out on a good thing...

Douglas Henry Quackenbush

, August 13th, 2007, Blue Springs, MO

Thanks for putting this website together and keeping it updated. I didn't find my lineage listed. My father was David Adams Quackenbush (born in 1889) and he married Hazel Lulu Wicks/Weeks/Weekes (born 1898). My grandfather's name was Peter Quackenbush who was born around 1848. It is reported that he spent some time in the Ontario, Canada area, then owned a store in Gouveneur, NY. His partner in the business ran off with the money and grandfather paid it all off and bought a hard scrabble farm southwest of Harrisville, NY. Farm has been sold and we've all scattered. My siblings were Donald, Keith, Pauline, John LeRoy, Robert, and me (a late surprise!). Don, Keith, and Pauline have all died. John lives in Plattsburgh, NY, Bob (and he signed in to this website a year ago -- I'm just a little slow) lives in Ocala, FL. I married a Kansas girl and here we are in MO. We've all retired but my son owns and operates Quackenbush Engineering Solutions in Wellington, Mo where I moonlight while collecting SS.

Please keep the good information on all your family histories flowing and perhaps some good Samaration will put another genelogy together for folks like me -- interested, but with too many other things (called grandchildren) to fatigue us. I did like the description of Quackenbushes -- headstrong, stubborn, opinionated and add to that -- don't like to take orders and each of us believes we ought to be boss. That must be why we are separated and spread out. On the flip side of that coin, if someone demands the shirt off our back, there will be a fight, but if we understand the need, you won't have to ask, it'll be handed to you. Guess that's why there was a Revolution in 1776.

There is no doubt that God has blessed this family.

Most of the Quackenbush's I meet or hear about are teachers. I am curious about how many of y'all are. I am, my father and his sister and his aunt are.

I understand that a grand daughter of Peiter Q wrote a book about him and that it is in the Albany, NY library.

There is also a Quackenbush Square in Albany. I wonder if it was named for Peiter.

In fact, the entire Hudson River Valley has a deep Dutch history, and Albany is at the top of the river.

And during the 50's, a Montgomery Wards-like store called Quackenbush's was found everywhere. I found one in Eugene, Oregon in 1980. Are there others?

Mr. Cloud,

I suggest you contact John Groenewold of J.G. Airguns at (jgairguns.biz) for information concerning guns produced by the H.M. Quackenbush Company of Herkimer NY. John literally wrote the book on Quackenbush guns. You could still get the book from Him the last time I checked. He also offers some parts and service.

The HMQ company still exists (it is now called HMQ) but it has not produced guns or ammunition for many years.

Debra Quackenbush

, January 15th, 2008, Newark, CA


My husband Michael Roy Quackenbush has never known his full family history. His father doesn't tell us much and the rest of the family is not sure either...so they say.
All we know if that Grandfather Quackenbush was a sailor/marine(?) somewhere stationed back east and while he was on leave was struck and killed by a drunk driver.

Grandmother Gurtrude Quackenbush had only two children.
Ray Quackenbush (my husband's father) and Joan Quackenbush.

It's so strange because it's like some big mystery that no one wants to talk about. Every time the subject comes up it gets changed right aways or they just shrug their shoulders like they don't know.
I find it hard to believe that even the grandmother whose still alive doesn't even have the answers as to who the father of her only two children are.

Oh and there is some story in the family about some relative great grandmother/aunt who missed being on the Titanic because of her cat. ??? not sure if this is true.

If anyone reads this and can give me some help it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, My name is Jennifer. In 1987-89 I attended Baker Middle School in Tacoma, Washington. There I met a wonderful boy named Creed Quackenbush. He was a very dear friend. He passed away in April 1993, just 2 months before we graduated. I am looking for his mother. I dont remember her name but I want her to know that her son was the most amazing friend I have ever had. If anyone knows who I am talking about I would love to find a way to let her know that he lives on through the stories I tell about him and the choices I make everyday. She would also be happy to know that one of my twin boys reminds me a lot of Creed. He is now the same age Creed and I were when we met.
Thank You,

Hey, I don't know much about my Quackenbush roots and am eager to find out some more. My grandfather was Laurence (Ernest i think) Quackenbush. He married Constance Perco or Perko? My dad was John Laurence and also he had one sibling my Aunt Nancy. My great uncle was Howard. That's about all I know. I believe My grandfather and Howard may have been 2 of the "6 brothers" as my grandma vaguely told me of it when I was younger. All are dead except my aunt who I don't have contact with, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! P.S. My grandparents and Howard and of course my dad and aunt and I are all from San Jose,Ca although I know my Grandparents and Howard relocated here from Minnesota.

This message is off topic but it's my site and I wanted to share this tip. Anyone searching for a way to recalibrate their TRUE Fitness treadmill (this works on a TRUE 500) which is giving them an E2 error code can follow this procedure:
(1)remove safety key
(2)turn machine off
(3)turn machine back on
(4)hold down both incline buttons
(5)keep buttons down and insert safety key
(6)machine will say "calibration"
(7)press start

My husband's family has been in Park Ridge, NJ over 115 years and before that not too far in Rockland County, NY. To add to your "Business" section, my husband's great grandfather started "Quackenbush Lumber Company" in 1896 and it is still being run today by my husband's brother, Albert Quackenbush. Their great Aunt Almeta Quackenbush Hartmann is still alive and doing fairly well at 108 yrs old. This is so interesting and fun. Thank you for putting this information together. BJQuackenbush

My grandmother was Doris Quackenbush and I,ve spent a fair amount of time on the Q genealogy. I believe we are all descendants of Pieter Q who came to what is now NYC and then Albany from Holland in 1653. I\'m a descendant of Hunter Scott Q who was a private in the Tryon Co in the Revolution. My ancestors lived in the Fort Plains, NY area until my great grandfather John Q died. John was a carpenter, wagon maker (I\'m looking a a candlestick table he made a this minute) and had lived in a house on the River Road but had moved to a house in Little Falls before his death. I have a copy of the Quackenbush book from which I can follow my part of the family until 1830. Regards to all my distant cousins.

The piece on the hotel shower heads was exceptional! But do rememember that any shower in the USA rivals those found in Africa. Something about water heated by fire in a barrel isn't easy to forget. No aromatheraphy in that!

When my husband 'THE REAL ERIC QUACKENBUSH' and I were engaged a friend of ours - one Ron Quackenbush - told me that I (the bride) was either crazy or in love. 13 years later we have been unable to satisfactorily answer the question. :) And I have to mention that I did date a Duckwhitz before marrying a Quackenbush.

But seriously here in North Atlanta we did have 2 listings for Eric Quackenbush married to Janet Quackenbush (neither being the same person). What a small world we live in.

Quackenbush, Florida,N.Y. from the 1870-1890 period. My father in law was an antique dealer in Greeley Pa. through the 1980's. He passed away several years ago, leaving his antiques to the family. I couldn't throw these beautiful history notes away without trying to contact the family...
These items are not for sale, i wish to give them to the Quackenbush family. If anyone is interested please call me at 570 729 7028.

Wow! Imagine my surprise to search and find this. My Great-Grandmother was a Quackenbush. I must get with my aunt to find all the details, but I remember Grandmother going to Mt. Morris, MI to visit her cousin - trying to remember his first name.....I know it was Quackenbush....

Anyways, I know that our roots have been traced to Pieter Quackenbush because he fought with George Washington in the Revolutionary war. I'm hoping to become a member of the DAR as soon as I can get a few papers in order to join that esteemed group.

If anyone has any information and would like to share notes on Geneaological Quackenbush stuff I sure would be happy to begin a dialogue!


Erik C Quackenbush

, August 6th, 2009, Duncan, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Pieter Quackenbosch, the founder of the Quackenbush family in America, was born in Holland circa 1614. He came to the new world in 1653. He was a brickmaker in Albany New York more than 100 years before the American Revolution. He had a grandson named Pieter who died in 1748, twenty eight years before the American Revolution. There were Quackenbushs on both sides of the revolutionary war. Some went to Canada after the war and received grants of land from the Crown. Others stayed in the United States. What kind of documentation do you need for DAR?


Melinda Arnson

, August 6th, 2009, Flint MI

Holy cow! What a great find.
I've been wanting to research family history. Until this very day, I believed there were VERY few Quackenbushes out there in the world, I mean, how common could THAT name be?

All you people- from all over the world who are Quackenbushes must be somehow related. My Great Grandmother, Myrtle Quackenbush lived in Flint area in Michigan. I don't know if she was born here, I intend to find out. She met and married my Great-Grandfather, James(John?) Coyne. My grandmother, Jeanette Coyne was born in 1920 in Flint, MI. Great-Grandfather James Coyne passed on in 1928 when Grandmother Jeanette was only 8 years old. Then Great-Grandmother moved to the middle area of the state and settled around Big Rapids, MI - not yet sure how that happened, but it did - maybe she moved then met Mr. Larsen or maybe met then moved. But anyways I grew up around Big Rapids MI - I knew little of family history. Had heard stories but none of it really, really stuck. Then I met a nice guy and moved to Flint, Michigan (really closer to Flushing and Swartz Creek than Flint) where I started getting interested in geneology. How interesting to find out I've come full circle back to Flint!

It's also interesting to know there are many, many Quackenbushes in this area. I am in hopes of contacting some of them once I get my courage up to call one of them out of the blue......so I'm wondering, if you're in my area of Flint, MI and you wish to become acquainted to share Quackenbush information and make friends, I'd LOVE to get to know my relatives.

My aunt's done a boatload of research, has been in contact with Mr. Gail Richard Quackenbush who wrote the book we can't seem to find now and I'm hoping perhaps I can get copies of some of the stuff she's got. All the info here matches most of what she's told me. How can folks from this area get in touch with each other without putting personal information on this very public page?

My mother was a Quackenbush. Her name was Olive Quackenbush. She was the daughter of Alfred Quackenbush,who was the son of Simon who was the son of Christopher and so on. While my sisters and I were doing research in Fonda, we came across some papers about a Peter Quackenbush who died of illness in an army hospital during the Civil War. His wife was paid a bounty for his service. Is this your grandfather? do you know the rest of your family tree? Sincerely, Cynthia Johnston

Just trying to fuse my line, Found a detailed History in my mothers attic. I am the 12th generation from Pieter Quackenbosch. My line stems from his son Adriaan Quackenosch, then Adriaan Jr. from Albany. Then his son Jacob Quackenbush, a private in the revolutionary war 1st reg. mormouth co. Jacob was the first in his line to assume this spelling (Quackenbush). His son William Quackenbush. And so on till my line. I have most of it if anyone is interested.

I'm researching my "roots" and my natural maternal grandmother was Irene Quackenbush Ressico who died at age 39 near Oneonta, NY (circa 1951) ... My mother was Elizabeth Joan Ressico Bloeth. Would like to see what connections to Quackenbush and the Oneonta area in the 1930s there might be ... My uncle was Marvin Ressico and another of their siblings was Marilyn Ressico. Their father was part of the Normandy Invasion and was killed shortly after D-Day.

He moved to Saginaw during the lumber era, and became Sheriff of Saginaw Co.

He evidently attended the Family Reunion in New York in the 60's - did not meet him there. Last I heard he moved moved to Florida, that was several years ago. Reportedly he has decided not to reprint the book. My family are NY and NJ up to my generation - then we scattered. Would like to hear from others.

I have a copy of Lieutenant George W Quackenbush's commission to the 133rd NYSV regiment, the Metropolitan Guards from New York City, dated 1862. He was my great grandfather. After the War he became a New York City fireman with the rank of Engineer, which would today be a Captain. I am descended from him through my grandmother, his daughter, Caroline. I believe that she had a brother, James, but may be mistaken.
I am interested in tracing the family back further. I would appreciate any assistance or guidance, as I am brand new to researching geneology.

Hi, I would like to purchase one of these books if possible?!? A few exist in our family, but I would like a copy of my own! I was at a recent gathering of my husband\'s family and our niecehas been working on the geneology on the Dawson side.After I gave her all of our birth dates;I asked to see her long list of ancestors. It went back twelve generations and much to my surprise, all I kept saying was \"Oh My GOD!!!\"!!! PIETER QUACKENBOSCH was their first ancester to come to AMERICA too! I wrote down the information from the first couple of lines so I could verify it Mon.When I could call my brother or my cousin to look up the info for me and sure enough, same, same!!!My cousin gave me your name and here I am;not sure what else to do.It is interesting going on ine and finding things though. I clicked on a Robert Q.-a well known Author and Illustrator of children\'s books;His AUNT FIVE GENERATIONS back WYN QUACKENBUSH MABIE served as a messenger for General Washington during America\'s Revolutionary War! What is most interesting besides a part of history is WYN QUACKENBUSH (MABIE) MAY BE THe connection to the DAWSON Family

I am the grand-daughter to Amy Quackenbush (1900-1973) and she was from Saginaw,MI. I now live in Maine. I had also traced her line back to Pieter Quackenbush/Quackenbosch. It's been a while since I have done genealogy, but I'm wanting to get back into it. I would be interesting what information we both have on the Quackenbushes and how we may very well be related.
Feel free to contact me at the email above!

Great website!
I am related via my paternal grandmother whose maiden name is Wood. Going from her backwards:
Silas LeRoy Wood - Silas Heman Wood - Peter Henry Wood - David I Wood - John Wood - Uriah Wood and Magdelana Quackenbush

Since you have access to extensive Quackenbush genealogy, do you happen to have further information on Uriah Wood? Some records have him born in 1725 in Schenectady, New York and others have him born in England, but location unknown. None of us can seem to go backwards from Uriah to the Wood English roots.

Great to see another Chicagoland native. I was born and raised in Des Plaines. =)

I still have yet to add my Quackenbush information, but feel free to visit my genealogy site at: www.eyre-genealogy.com

I am puzzled by a Ben Quackenbush and family who appear on the 1880 Census in the household of my GGgrandfather, George Stout, in Morgan Co. IN. Census taker had Ben down as a "son-in-law". I suspect the Census record was in error, and that Ben was related to George's wife Martha White, or Martha's mother's family, the Russells.
Does this ring a bell with anybody? TIA.

, May 10th, 2011, Northport, NY

My part of the family came to the region of New York known as Kingsboro, later changed to Stump City and currently Gloversville. Our side of the family startde the leather/tanning business in the area but something when wrong and we were exiled to the Carolina's. This is where the name was changed to Quakenbush because we were protector of a group of Quakers in the region. My Grand dadfought in the Civil War and my dad Thomas Roland Quakenbush enlisted in the Navy at the age of 16. After the WWII he married and left Greensboro NC for Gloversville. Who knew the family would return to its roots some two hundred years later! I have since moved from Gloversville to my current location. If you know of any of the North Carolina Quakenbush's I am looking to reconnect.

The death certificate of my great grandfather, Delanson Foster Russell, lists his father as Gideon Russell and his mother as Hulda Quackenbush. Delanson was born in the town of Glen, Montgomery County, New York on August 19, 1847.
I have records from the First Reformed Protestant Dutch church of the Town of Glen, organized as the First Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of the Town of Charlestown (Charleston) Montgomery County, New York on March 18, 1795. It states that on Feby. 19, 1853 a Delancing Foster and a Gilbert Johnson, whose parents are Jane Eliza Quackenboss and Gideon Russell, were baptised The birth dates are Aug. 21, 1847 and Aug. 19, 1847 respectively.Does anyone have any other information on siblings of Delanson or about the name Hulda?

We are searching for the artist of a stylized deer resembling artwork of native american Zunis. It is signed Quackenbush and says "Mimtus 9" to the right of the signature. It is drawn or printed on what might be rice paper or another kind of special paper. It was recently purchased from a dealer in an antique mall in Boston. The framing appears to be original and has some age. Any help you can give us will be appreciated.
Neither Robert (illustrator - childrens' book)nor Don Quackenbush (glass and graphics)are the artist.

Sir, for reasons I will not explain, my son has left me with one of your fine weapons. I regret that airguns are not my passion and I find myself attempting to sell a very fine weapon that I know nothing about, including the price. I would like to obtain your help if possible to sell this weapon. I can not verify the condition of the weapon other that to say it is in excellent condition. I would like to send this weapon to you and let you dispose of it for the appropriate amount. If this is possible please advise, my home number is 252-569-5471.

Delia couldn't have been my grandmother's (Edith Townsend Aber) sister-in-law or her name would have been Delia Casterline. I think Delia Quackenbush was my grandmother's aunt. They both look about 40 in my 1933 photo. They look happy--friends on a sunny day. I might be able to find out more. I have a box full of papers. As I said on my previous post, there's a family tree on Facebook. See Townsend, Coon or Tucker.

Researching history of my little hometown. P.A. Quackenbush was named news reporter and solicitor of The Van News in May of 1930. News article says he had been in newspaper business for 28 years. Would love to know more about him. He was the "cheerleader" for the town - always urging improvement. Active in development of the town. What happened to him?

He is presently puttung the info on Ancestry.com. I have updated my line on Ancestry.com. You could do this also. Also just heard of some Auackenbushes having a reunion in Mumford NY.

I recently married a Justice A. Quackenbush, son of William Neal Quackenbush. Looking over your website it seems like we must be from the same family tree. The family is notorious for having boys so when my husband and I gave birth to the first Quackenbush girl in many generations everyone considered her a rare jewel. Her name is Charlotte Elizabeth Quackenbush. I was just curious if you knew if our Quackenbush line is from the same blood line. My Grandfather in-law is David Quackenbush.

or a different Quackenbush?
There is an 1870's article
in a Canastota newspaper
where a Quackenbush businessman
moved from Canastota to Herkimer.

When my mother and father (both now deceased) were married in 1948 they received a wonderful water color painting. The painting depicts stevedores working on a busy dock and it is signed "Quackenbush". I just discovered that Stanley Quackenbush was an animator and a fine arts painter. Is there a possibility that your grandfather might have painted it?

Thanks, John

I am in possession of a HM Quackenbush air rifle.. serial number 1-33877. The last time I used it was as a little boy in the 1960s... The spring broke and that was that. My father and his brother were each given on as young boys by their father, probably in the late 1920s or early 1930s but the rifles may have been older at that time.

I am really not interested in selling it but am interested in knowing its value..... the finish is not too bad , but not great either. Any information you can provide as to when this rifle was manufactured would be appreciated. Thank you.


Erik Craig Quackenbush

, September 13th, 2013, Duncan, BC

James Dietz,

H.M. Quackenbush made many different air gun models over the years. The one I own was made in the 1890\'s. They were made from 1871-1943.

You can find out more about your gun by picking up the book \"Quackenbush Guns\" by John Groenewold.

Quackenbush Guns book: //www.jgairguns.biz/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=46_625&products_id=8274

JG Airguns (run by his daughter now, I think?) still sells replacement parts and ammunition for Quackenbush guns.

.21 caliber Quackenbush air gun ammunition: www.jgairguns.biz/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=30_37&products_id=8231

(Most of the air guns were .21 caliber and will jam if you try to force in a .22 pellet)

Value? I think I paid a few hundred dollars for mine. It\'s nickel plated and is in very good (but not mint) condition.

Nice job. My mother's maiden name was Quackenbush. She grew up on Sparta and Bangor, WI. I've done a lot of family research, but our branch (from our records and the Quack book) stop in New York in the 1790s which is a bummer. I think a multiple marraige situation caused confusion for the Quack book author.

My uncle, who passed away at age 102, published a book, Quackenbush Family History. I can likely get you a copy of the hardbound book if you'd like. He did a tremendous amount of research. He lived most of his adult life in New Jersey and then retired close to children in Massachusetts.

Helo! I am Daniel Quackenbush, son of Dan Quackenbush, son of Cecil Quackenbush. I've only ever met one Quackenbush that wasn't a member of my paternal family, but everywhere I go people will tell me, "Oh I knew a Quackenbush once", or "Do you know so and so Quackenbush?" It's awesome to see that these aren't just rumors! I loved the Nicknames bit on this site, totally related to it. People call me Duckinshrub, and where I move it follows me. I love our name though, it's the best! Thanks for keeping this up by the way! It's great!

Just thought I would share a joke I heard once, a guy came to me and told me that he had a dream about a joke where my last name was the punchline. In Australia the wilderness is called the "bush" right? So the joke was, What do you call an Australian duck? Quackenbush! Haha, it's pretty cheesy but someone might appreciate it!

Very interesting info about the "first car radio".
When my dad was very young he claims he saw the first successful car radio. The secret? The inventer used an aluminum fishing pole that stretched along the running board!\
I've had a couple of the Quackenbush .22 rifles. Next time I get one I will try some of the reduced velocity .22 CB cartridges in it. In truth I think any standard velocity cartridge is safe but high velocity may well shorten the lifespan of the gun.
Best wishes and thanks,

I remember Chris when I was a grad student at UNH. He lived in Seacrest Village in the same complex where I lived on Rock Hill Ave. I used to go to the Friday night dances at UNH where he played. I can still remember him playing "Do You Believe In Magic" by the Lovin Spoonful. He was a Skinny kid with long blond hair as I remember him and I think he may have married as a student and had a very young baby at the time. I was in Seacrest Village from 1965-1969. I always liked to hear him sing and play.

I believe I'm also a Quackenbush. I'm a descendent of Annatje Quackenbosch, who is the daughter of Jacob Quackenbosch (born in Albany NY in 1715)

I am in possession of a .22 caliber Safety Rifle,(an 18" Barrel) with Patent Markings for 1886 & 1896. Though not in mint condition, it has the original wood stock & the action works and fires true. I was curious as to the approx. value.

Thank you

This link will/might point to a more likely origin of our name. Unfortunately, Dutch only. But Google translate does a decent (fair attempt) job ...

I was born at 7272 USAF Hospital on Wheelus Air Base in Libya in June 1967.

My official USAF hospital birth record was signed by the Registrar, D.F. Quackenbush, Capt, USAF MSC.

Perhaps someone visiting this site is related to him.
