It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

Elizabeth Bloetgoet (1702-????) was the daughter of Jan Bloetgoet (1672-1716) and Mary Morgan (about 1672-after 1730) of Flushing, New York.  She married Thomas Gach (1702-1770) in 1721, and they had ten  children. 

Thomas and Elizabeth (Bloetgoet) Gach are my 6th great-grandparents, through their daughter Martha Gach (1730-????) who married Samuel Fitz Randolph (1730-????) in 1750.
