The Roosevelt Cousins


Although the Roosevelts are not known to be descendants of a Hollenbeck, Theodore Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt are cousins of many Hollenbeck descendants. Theodore Roosevelt is the 5th great grandson of Niclaas Van Schaick (also spelled Van Schaack). Niclaas Van Schaick's great granddaughter, Annatje Van Schaick married Jacobus Hannes Hallenbeck in 1713. Also, his granddaughter, Sara Van Hoesen married Casper Willemse Hallenbeck. Hence, many Hollenbeck descendants living today are cousins to both Theodore and Eleanor Roosevelt (Theodore was Eleanor's uncle; also Eleanor's husband, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was her 5th cousin - confusing, isn't it?). Theodore Roosevelt is my 6th cousin four times removed and Eleanor Roosevelt is my 7th cousin three time removed. See Elenaor Roosevelt's Paternal Ancestry and Theodore Roosevelt .
