My ancestor Aaron Yerks was born in "The Jerseys" in 1753 and he died in Montgomery, Orange County NY in 1789. His children were Aaron, Nicholas, Mary and Catharine. I have been unable to locate details about Yerks Yerkes Yourkes Jourkes Jourckse Jurckes Jurckse families that were in NJ during the 1750's. I am looking for any information about Yerks families in this area during this time.

Beyond suggesting a thorough search of the NY Biographical Record, and a thorough walk through the early published New York records at the Society for all those name spelling variants, both the state volumes and the various church records, I'm at a loss as what to suggest you do next.

 

Are you near the Society or NYC itself, or Albany?

No, I'm in western NY (Rochester) so can you tell me if these databases are online? Thanks for responding.
