Marriage of Albert R. Van Winkle & Margaret BushAlbert R. Van Winkle married Margaret Bush on April 13, 1811 in the Paramus Church in Bergen Co., NJ. Albert is on the tax lists for Saddle River, Bergen Co., NJ in 1813, 1814 & 1816. Albert Van Winkle probably died between 1816 & 1820. In 1820 Margaret is on the 1820 census of Ontario Co., NY with her 3 children, living with her parents (Lodowick & Magdalena Bush) who had emigrated there. I'm not sure where Margaret and the children were living in 1830, but there is a female the right age to be Margaret living in the household of her brother John L. Bush on the 1840 census of Benton, Yates Co., NY. Margaret is listed in John L. Bush's household on the 1850 (age 61) and 1860 (age 72) censuses of Benton, Yates Co., NY. Margaret Bush Van Winkle died on June 26, 1864 in Benton, Yates Co., NY. Of the 3 children from this marriage, only Hannah married and had descendants, and all 3 children probably died before 1855.

As far as I know he did not marry, and died when he was about 19-1/2 years old.
