Looking for my husband's great-grandmothers family.
We don't know much just that her name was Orianna I.
VanAuken and she was born in Rutland Vt. She married
a Charles S. Bishop and they lived in and around New Haven, Conn. She may have also gone by Anna VanAuken.
I would appreciate any help that you can give.

I found Anna J Bishop, wife of Charles S on the 1900 Bridgeport, CT Federal Census. They are listed with two sons but I could not make out the names. Chales Bishop was b 1857 CT and Anna J b 1861 VT. Do you have any additional information regarding Anna J? such as place & date of death, obituary, siblings, son's names and their place/date of death and obituaries? Also any place/dates of marriage might be helpful as certificates might include further information on Anna J. Looking forward to hearing from you. Ann
I came across your site, and thought I would see if you could help me locate any new information about the family. I am trying to locate a connection to the Sarah and William Vanderbilt line (cousins) from Melrose, Iowa, from the 1880's as well.
Here is our line as I know it:
Jan Coster Van Auken
Marinus Van Auken
Pieter Van Auken 1685 - 1756
Petrus Van Auken 1720 - 1784
Jeremiah Van Auken 1743 - 1825
Soloman Van Auken 1811 - 1860
Nellie Van Auken 1859 - 1938 (my great grandmother)
