Hi Deborah,

See below regarding a recent discovery.... also, Elizabeth Bird was actually the second marriage for Solomon and not his first. Solomon married Aaltje Merrill 02/05/1793 and he married Elizabeth Bird 11/12/1827.

Apparently there were two Solomon Zeluffs. I had my Solomon (married to Aaltje Merrill) as the son of Daniel Zeluff and Hannah Clark. However, I located Peter Zeluff’s will that mentions his son Solomon. Peter is the brother of Daniel and he was married to Marya Van Pelt. I believe that Daniel’s son Solomon is the one who married Elizabeth Taler (Taylor?). Peter is found in the 1790 census for Northfield, Staten Island and in the 1800 census just three away from my Solomon.

Located his will dated January 10, 1801:

Pages 213-215

Will No. 77 (Pages 13-214?) Peter Zeluf of Richmond Co., (no town), Staten Island, ? to my son Daniel Zeluf the whole of my real Estate - to my Son Jacob Zeluff, Daug Dora McGuire - to my Son John Zeluf, Solomon Zeluf, Peter Zeluf 2, Mary Grandine - my Children Jacob Zeluf, Daniel Zeluf, Peter Zeluf, Solomon Zeluf, Mary Grandine - Appoint Sons Daniel Zeluf & Solomon Zeluf Executors signed April 11, 1800 Peter Zeluff. Witnesses Peter Amerman?, Abadiah Jones, Paul Latourrette (interesting to note the double r), dated 10 Jan 1801 will of Peter Zeluf, Late of Northfield, Co. Richmond, Yeoman, ?

Let me know if you have any questions.
