I have a copy of a part of a book entitled "Time and The Valley - Story of
the Upper Roundout Valley" published by the Town of Neversink Bicentennial
Commission in 1978.
I have pages 27-43 of a Chapter entitled "Great Expectations The
Hardscrapple Years 1810-1850". On page 28 is a paragraph that interests me
"If we wish to tell the story of the Valley in terms of one family, we have
several to choose from. The Hornbecks first settled at Eureka in 1743, and
there are direct descendants of the original settlers still living in the
I am interested in the Hornbecks of the Eureka area in particularly I am
looking for the lineage of an Eleazer Hornbeck (b. 1790-1794). He lived his
life in the Neversink area. But who his parents were is unknown.
This one paragraph in the book is interesting -- who were the Hornbecks who
were in Eureka in the Roundout Valley beginning in 1743? The Neversink
Bicentennial Commission must have had some documents that allowed them to
write this paragraph - does anyone know the possible source? Does anyone
have any idea which Hornbeck's were in the Eureka area from 1743 onwards?
And of course, does anyone know who these direct descendants still living
there (at least as of 1978) may be.
Lastly - has anyone run across old maps of Neversink that may show land
ownership in the 1700's or early 1800's. I have seen some maps for Ulster
County in the mid to late 1800's but I have not yet seen any for Neversink.
