Hollenbeck Family Orchestra
From left: Emma Hollenbeck Pettit, Cora (Mrs. Herbert Hollenbeck),
Gertrude (Mrs. Charles Hollenbeck), & Herbert Hollenbeck.
Seated: Edwin Hollenbeck, Harold Pettit, & Charles Hollenbeck.
This proud family had their roots in Holland, as the name might suggest.
Although the little book tracing their genealogy disappeared many years ago,
we do know that the first Hollenbeck immigrant to America came in the 1600s,
when New York belonged to the Dutch and was known as New Amsterdam.
