All of the Eldert families that lived in South Hempstead, New York in the 1790 census can be traced back to Johannes Eldert II (bef1705-?), with the exception of the household of Lucas Eldert (1733-1815), who was a son of Eldert Eldert (1704-?). Both Johannes and Eldert descended from Eldert Lucaszen (1651-1722), the progenator of the Eldert family of New Netherlands. These South Hempstead Eldert family branches, which include the descendants of Israel Eldert (c1734-aft1800) (son of Johannes II), Benjamin Eldert (c1731-bef1790) (son of Johannes II), James Eldert (bef1755-aft1800) (brother or son of Benjamin), and Lucas Eldert (1733-1815), are collectively referred to in this article as the Eldert family of South Hempstead, New York.

1790 CensusEdit

In the 1790 census, the Eldert families of South Hempstead were in five clusters.

Household of James EldertEdit

On the third page of the census of South Hempstead was the household of James Eldert (bef1755-aft1800). James was either the brother or son of Benjamin Eldert (c1731-bef1790), who was in turn a son of Johannes Eldert II (bef1705-?). The household consisted of James, his wife, two sons over 16 years in age, two sons under 16 years of age and two daughters. Two of the sons were Nicholas Eldert (bet1765&1774-aft1810) and Richard Eldert (c1775-aft1860). Another two of the sons died or left Long Island prior to 1800, and their names are unknown. one of the two daughters was Abigail Eldert (c1790-aft1850). The name of the other is unknown, as she either died or married parior to 1800.

Family of Benjamin Eldert, deceasedEdit

On the fourth page of the census, there was a cluster of three households which belong to the family of Benjamin Eldert (c1731-bef1790), deceased. The heads of these three households were as follows:

Family of Israel EldertEdit

Also on page 4 was a cluster of two households, corresponding to the family of Israel Eldert (c1734-aft1800).

  • Israel Eldert: Israel resided with his wife Anna Totten and son Samuel Eldert (1760-aft1830), as well as three daughters, Sarah Eldert (c1767-?), Jane Eldert (c1769-1846) and Mary Eldert (c1782-1794).
  • Son John Eldert: Next door to Israel was the household of his already married son John Eldert (bef1775-aft1820). John resided with his wife Mary Birdsall, as well as three sons and two daughters. One of John's sons was Israel Eldert (bet1780&1790-aft1830). Another either died childless prior to 1800 or was reported as under 10 in the 1800 census. The third either died childless prior to 1800 or was residing with John's father Israel in the 1800 census. Neither of John's two daughters appear in the 1800 census, although both the households of John's father Israel and John's brother Samuel each pick up an unexplained daughter (over 10 years old) in the 1800 census, possibly daughters of John.

Household of Lucas EldertEdit

Lucas Eldert (1733-1815) was listed as Luke Eldert on page 7 of the census. He was residing with his second wife Jane Suydam, and children Elnathan Eldert (1767-1853) and Abigail Eldert (c1765-aft1791). Both Elnathan and Abigail were from Lucas' first marriage to Martha Mott.

Household of John Eldert, son of LucasEdit

On page 8 was listed John Eldert (1762-1844), the son of Lucas Eldert (1733-1815), above. John resided with his wife Sarah (maiden name unknown), and one daughter, whose name is presently unknown. John's wife Sarah was born February 16, 1764. The daughter in the census either died prior to 1800 or was born in 1790 and reported as under 10 in 1800.

1800 CensusEdit

Household of John Eldert, son of IsraelEdit

John Eldert (bef1775-aft1820) appeared on page 3 of the 1800 census. The household consisted of John, his wife Sarah, and two children born between 1790 and 1800 (one boy and one girl). The boy was Samuel B. Eldert (c1798-aft1850). The name of the girl is presently unknown. None of John and Sarah's children from the 1790 census appear in the household. It is believed that John's son Israel Eldert (bet1780&1790-aft1830) (from the 1790 census) was residing with John's father Israel Eldert (c1734-aft1800). The two other sons from the 1790 census probably died young, or else one of them was reported as under 10 in the 1800 census. As far as the two daughters from the 1790 census, they appear to have both died or married prior to 1800, unless one of them was reported as under 10 in the 1800 census. There is also a strong possibility that one of the daughters was living with John's father Israel, as he seems to have acquired an additional young girl by 1800.

Household of Israel EldertEdit

The Israel Eldert (c1734-aft1800) household appears on page 4 of the 1800 census of South Hempstead. There are three adults of the household, all over 45 years, two of which must be Israel and his wife Anna Totten. The identity of the third woman is unknown. There is also one boy in the household born between 1784 and 1790, presumed to be Israel's grandson Israel Eldert (bet1780&1790-aft1830) who does not appear in the household of his father John. There are also two other females in the household, one between the ages of 16 and 26, and the other between the ages of 26 and 45. The older of the two was either Israel's daughter Sarah Eldert (c1767-?) or Jane Eldert (c1769-1846), although it is unclear which one of Israel's two oldest daughters (Sarah or Jane) married prior to 1800. The younger girl could not have been Israel's daughter Mary Eldert (c1782-1794), as she died in 1794. It could, however, have been one of Israel's grand-daughters (i.e., another child of John and brother of Israel).

Household of Lucas EldertEdit

In 1800, Lucas Eldert (1733-1815) appeared on page 5 of the census of South Hempstead. He was living with his wife Jane Suydam, and one other woman over the age of 45.

Households of Elnathan and John Eldert, sons of LucasEdit

Two of Locas' sons, Elnathan and John, also appeared on page 5 in South Hempstead.

  • Son Elnathan Eldert: Elnathan Eldert (1767-1853) resided with his wife Hannah Norstrand and their first son, reported as under 10 years of age. The name of this son is unknown.
  • Son John Eldert: John Eldert (1762-1844) resided with one daughter aged 10-16 and three daughters reported as under 10 years of age. The names of these four daughters are presently unknown. Conspicuously missing is John's wife Sarah.

Households of Abraham, Smith and William Eldert, sons of BenjaminEdit

The households of Benjamin's three sons Abraham, Smith and William all appear on page 9 of the census of South Hempstead. The households of Abraham and Smith are on the same lot.

  • Son Albraham Eldert: The household of Abraham Eldert (bet1765&1784-aft1820) consisted of Abraham and his wife, as well as 3 sons and 1 daughter, all born between 1790 and 1800. Two of the sons were Daniel Eldert (c1790-aft1830) and John Eldert (bet1790&1794-aft1810). The name of the third is unknown, and is presumed to have died prior to 1810. The name of Abraham's daughter is also unknown. After Abraham's death in the 1800s, his sons Daniel and John appear in the census of Flushing, New York, which indicates that Abraham probably moved there prior to his death, and is thus the progenator of the Eldert family of Flushing, New York.
  • Son Smith Eldert: The household of Smith Eldert (bet1765&1774-aft1810) consisted of Smith and his wife (name unknown), as well as two daughters, both born between 1790 and 1800. The names of these two daughters are presently unknown.
  • Son William Eldert: The household of William Eldert (bef1765-aft1820) consisted of William and his wife Ruth Looker, as well as two sons born between 1784 and 1790, one son born between 1790 and 1800, one daughter born between 1784 and 1790 and one daughter born between 1790 and 1800. The three oldest children are Benjamin Eldert (1786-?), Shadrick Eldert (c1788-aft1850) and the unknown daughter who appeared in the 1790 census. The name of the new young son is unknown; the new young daughter is Mary Eldert (1795-?).

Household of James EldertEdit

James Eldert (bef1755-aft1800) appears on page 10 in South Hempstead. The household consists of James, his wife, two sons between the ages of 26 and 45, and one daughter between the ages of 10 and 16. These three children are identified as:

Household of William Eldert, son of Abraham, grandson of BenjaminEdit

By 1800, William Eldert (bef 1790-aft1800) had married and appears on page 11 of the census of South Hempstead. The household consisted of William, his wife (name unknown) and one young son, born after 1790. William's son is presumed to be the same person as one of the sons in the 1810 household who is reported as under 10, as he was likely born late in the year 1800.

Household of Samuel Eldert, son of IsraelEdit

Samuel Eldert (1760-aft1830) first appears as a head of household in the 1800. The household consists of Samuel and his wife (name unknown), as well as a son under the age of 10, two daughters under the age of 10, and a girl between the ages of 10 and 16. Since Samuel does not appear to have been married for longer than 10 years, the oldest girl is suspected to be a child of Samuel's brother John (who had one son and two daughters vanish from his household between the 1790 and 1800 censuses). None of the names of the children in the household are known.

1810 CensusEdit
