    Sarah du Bois (daughter of Louis)is my 8th great grandmother. My family connection begins with the marriage of Ruth VanMeter to Captain Samuel Gill (Kentucky) Ruth’s father was Henry, his father was John, and his father was Joost JANSEN VAN METERN who married Sara Du Bois. would love to chat with someone who could provide me with more info on these ancestors.

    Hi David,

    I am also a descendant of the Dubois and VanMeter families. They are actually fairly easy to find out about with online trees, blogs, genealogies (along with this website).

    I just looked up Ruth VanMeter and Samuel Gill and found this page: http://sciway3.net/clark/gill/boutetourterasmus.html – interesting and a branch I did not know about!

    I had to find out more because I thought from what you wrote that the people you mentioned were related to me – and I found that they were. Ruth Van Meter was my 1st cousin, 7 times removed. Her father Henry was my 7th great uncle (and a brother of my 7th great-grandfather Jacob VanMeter). This site shows tons of details about the family – the page I am linking is Ruth VanMeter’s. http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=elsien57&id=I2094
