Hi Tara, My wifes grandmother was a Remsen, Years ago I searched the Remsen's and went back to Holland, 1 clan settled in New Amsterdam and the others to Brooklyn and the Flatlands it was from this latter where my wifes people came from they wound up in Jamica L. I. NY But unto your search. This John Nehemiah Remsen you are correct on most points along with his spouse and children. It looks to me like the 1880 census messed up on the age of the girl ( they have 17 if they were married in 1868 she would have been born 5 yrs before thier marriage ) the recorder of the Census probably messed up the "1" In the times we now live I would say it could have been the 1863 birth. But there is another issue and THAT IS Nehemiah's father was born in NY and the mother born in Nova Scotia, and the parents of John Nehemiah Remsen are John and Esther and John Nehemiah was christen in 1847 in " All Saints Anglican, Granville, Annapolis, Nova Scotia . Many families went to Nova Scotia from Ny and Mass to escape then returned when things quieted down. The Remsens from NY proper were Dutch Reform and the ones on Long Island were Anglican but soon became Presyterian. for many Years the West end of the Island and the East end of the Island didn't get along ( just a little side note ) Thats it good luck in your searching
