My ancestors also emigrated from Netherlands to the US, arriving, in most part, in Neu Nederland (New York City).  Their surname was DeVries Van Dalsen.  The Van Dalsen name went through many changes, eventually coming to my birth surname of Dolson.  I don’t know if this information will help you, but I sincerely hope it does.
