From Miner's Lineage we can see that the Lamoureux Family provides the Mother for Miner VanLoon while the Bronson Family provides the Mother for Charity VanLoon.  However, both Charity and Miner share the same Great Grandfather and Grandmother; Jean (John) Lamoureux and Charity E Davenport.  The reason for this can be seen if you look at Children of Jean (John) Lamoureux.  Thomas Lamoureux married Keturah Tuttle in 1772. This leads to the birth of Miner Van Loon.  The Sister of Thomas, Charity Lamoureux married Thomas Davenport in 1774.  This led to the birth of Charity Davenport.  As a result, both Miner and Charity share some of the same ancestors.  Read the Writings by the Van Loon Family for good information.
