A book on the Devendorf family at library

I just stumbled on this forum. When researching my family in the early 1980's, I found a book by Col. Ola Walker Bell on "The Devendorf Family" Tracing the line of decent from the pioneers in the Mohawk Valley. It is in the Rundell Branch of the Rochester (NY) Public Library. I copied numerous pages relating to my line:
1) Johannes Diefendorf(1700-2/23/1791) (sp)Elizabeth Keller
2) John Jacob Diefendorf (5/12/1742-3/29/1829) (sp)Catherine Windecker
3) Daniel Defendorf (12/17/1792 - 10/30/1865) (sp) Maria Countryman
4) Elija Defendorf (10/14/1814 - 6/4/1897) (sp)Harriet Bevier
5) George E. Defendorf (3/26/1859 - 10/24/1906) (sp) Elizabeth Burling
6) Raymond Elisha Defendorf (1/6/1891 - 8/26/1968) (sp) Alice McCulloch
etc.

The common decendant of everyone on this page is Johannes, who aparently came to America with his brother Heinrich between 1720 and 1725. My cousin uncovered a Johannes and Heinrich Diebendorfer with the correct birth and death dates (actually a 10 year to the day difference in Johannes, Born 24 Nov 1690 or 1700)
Johannes and Heinrich were the children of:
Ludwig Diebendorfer(12/12/1658-7/27/1694) and Solome Notz (4/17/1659 - 5/8/1703) Married July 3, 1685

Ludwig was the child of:
Jacob Dubendorfer (4/19/1629 - 8/13/1684) and Ester Rellstab (unknow/1694 - 2/3/1690) They were married 4/29/1651 and moved to Schresheim Germany after the 30 year war

Jacob was the child of:
Andreas Dubendorfeer (2/19/1600-unknown) and Elsbeth Banz (unknown b/d) They were married 2/20/1621. Andreas second wife was Reigel Bachmann and they were maried 2/15/1633)

Andreas was the child of Bassersdorf (only name known) from Kanton of Zurich, Switzerland.
