The Van Gorders of Beaver County, Pa., are linked to an interesting collection of families that settled in the Dutch colony of New Netherland during the mid-1600s.  These families represent a presence in America almost a century earlier than any of our other lines of ancestry.  Following are links to accounts of these families.
