All available records indicate that every Quackenbush in North America can ultimately be traced back to an immigrant name Pieter Quackenbosch who came to New Netherland (later called New York) in 1653 aboard the ship Graft. Pieter was born in Oegstgeesst Holland circa 1614. The modern village of Oesgstgeest is a suburb of Leiden in South Holland.
