Beginning in 2011, Angeles Oakes has been compiling a genealogical manuscript of the Stoutenburgh family beginning with immigrant Pieter Stoutenburg who died in New York in 1698. Currently within her project she has been able to document facts for 3,362 people in the Stoutenburgh tree, including some Teller descendants.
