I believe that part of the primarily Quaker Colonies from the Aberdeenshire and surrounding areas in Scotland around 1680 that were settled in East Jersey with my kinsmen John BARCLAY and his inabsentia propriator and Governor of East Jersey brother Robert BARCLAY and propriator father, David and nephew David were in Mercer County. I am inquiring of other families from these settlement any information they might have about the settlers in that generation and those to follow. I am seeking a connection between the descendants of BARCLAY in East Jersey and later those in Rowan Co NC, Jersey settlement, Robert BARKLEY b est 1717 to 1723 married to Leah probably Madison BARKLEY. The BARCLAY family has betten to dead the question of who was Robert BAKLEY of Rowan Co m to Leah and where did he come from, but the clues may be with other settler families. Also, does anyone have a note in their family materials about Robert BARCLAY, the Governor and Quaker Apologist ever visiting the colonies in America, his having other interests in Scotland and this being just one of them. These BARCLAYs were the BARCLAYs of Ury. New Jersey history seems to have either forgotten or never known much of these colonies, a fastinating part of its history.

Searching for the family of my Great Great Grandfather, James Allen DAVIS and his wife Charlotte KIRBY. James Allen DAVIS was born in New Jersey in about 1820 - possibly in Mercer County. His father's name was most probably John DAVIS and his mother's first name was Ann. Her maiden name might have been STEWART or she may have remarried a man named STEWART. Based on James' birth date, his parents would have been married between 1800 and 1820. James left New Jersey for Champaign County, Ohio sometime prior to 1840. It is assumed that his parents (if still alive) and siblings (if any) remained in New Jersey. Once in Ohio, James initially lived with and possibly traveled to Ohio with his uncle, also named James DAVIS (born 1778 in New Jersey), an Aunt named Britania DAVIS (born 1790 New Jersey), and Britania's son Thomas DAVIS (born 1820 New Jersey.). In 1847, James Allen DAVIS married Charlotte KIRBY. It is believed that the KIRBYs came from the same area in New Jersey as the DAVIS family and may have traveled west with them. Charlotte's father was Joel KIRBY born 1802 in New Jersey. His wife's first name was Hannah. Her maiden name was possibly BUSSER with her mother's first name also possibly being Hannah born 1780 in New Jersey. Joel and Hannah KIRBY had 7 children among them, Charlotte, Elizibeth, and Olivia. All of these children may have been born in New Jersey. Thank you.

Looking for information on HENRY. Charles A. HENRY born 1891, died 1954, lived on Melrose Ave. Trenton, Mercer County, NJ. Believed to have also previously lived on Centre St. Also looking for information on his wife Anna M. HENRY (maiden name ZIEGLER), born 1895, died 1964, lived on Melrose Ave, and believed to have also previously lived on Klagg Ave. Both are buried in Our Lady of Lourdes Cemetery, Trenton, Mercer County, NJ. They had three sons, Charles HENRY (deceased), John HENRY (deceased) and Donald J. HENRY, Sr. (my father-currently 73 years old). Charles A. HENRY and Anna M. (ZIEGLER) HENRY were my grandparents, and both were of Irish/German ancestry. I am trying to gather information on them and hopefully their respective parents as well, in an effort to trace back the HENRY family genealogy. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Looking for information on the parentage of Gershom HERRON, born in Hopewell Township, Hunterdon Co., now Mercer Co., on 6 May 1752. He married Hannah BRINSON. Their daughter Susan was born in Hopewell in 1776. Susan married Benjamin ANDERSON, son of Joseph and Hannah. Another daughter, Sarah HERRON married Benjamin SMITH, son of Benjamin and Sarah SMITH, also from Hopewell. A preponderance of evidence leads me to believe that Gershom HERRON and his brother John HERRON were the sons of Edmund HERRIN, who had a son named ISAAC. Edmund HERRIN was the son of Isaac HERRIN, the first Town Clerk of Hopewell, who died in 1756.

HOWELL's of Trenton. I am hoping that someone might be able to fill in my gaps! I have sketchy information about 3 brothers named John, Howard, and Daniel HOWELL that were "extensive landholders in NJ" and who came here with William Penn in the late 1600's. One of these brothers had a ggrandson named John. My info comes from my ggggrandfather Dr. Memucan HOWELL's obituary of 1819. Of course, that obit might not be absolutely accurate. It states that "Dr. Memucan HOWELL's father was, John, from the Trenton NJ area. John HOWELL's ggrandfather was either Daniel, John, or Howard." The obit also says that Memucan went to Princeton and was a surgeon in the War of 1812. (Princeton can't seem to locate Memucan in their records.) I don't know how to go backwards from Memucan since I can't seem to find his birth place in New Jersey. Does any of my info dovetail with yours? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

May 5, 1840 in Ewing, NJ. They were married in 1820. I need to verify the dates of their births and deaths and marriage.

My great, great grandparents were Patrick and Ann (or Anna) MAGUIRE (McGUIRE). They immigrated to the USA in 1853 with infant son John (born in Ireland Oct, 1852) and possibly a sister. I have no information regarding where they came from or where they landed. Oral information mentions mother, daughter and son John in Philidelphia somewhere between 1853 and 1862. John emerges in Trenton, NJ at age 10 (unknown if he was with the rest of the family) according to his police department employment records. He was an officer in the Trenton Police Department from Jan 20, 1887 to June 4, 1909. Previous jobs were iron worker, street car conductor and canal boatman. He was married to Mary Ellen GANNON on Jan 13, 1875 in Trenton, NJ. They had 5 surviving children - Thomas, John, Joseph, Mary, and Edward. Despite many efforts I have been unable to fill in the gaps and most importantly find out where they were from in Ireland. My hunch is that they were married in Ireland somewhere between 1848 and 1852. Family oral information indicates they were from "Northern Ireland". If any of this sounds familiar to you please drop me a line. Many thanks.

I am looking for my biological grandparents, MORRIS. My dad was born Charles Calvin MORRIS, on May 6, 1933 in Franklin Township, Hunterdon County, NJ. He was placed in the New Jersey Childrens Home Society, at 471 Parkway Ave, Trenton, Mercer County, NJ. In the spring of 1935 he was taken by Albert & Ella DILKS to Pennsville, Salem County, NJ.

His mother was between 16-18 years old at the time of birth, the father was a married man with 3 children and worked with the Railroad. I don't know if the mother or father was the MORRIS. Nor do I know if they were from Hunterdon county or perhaps Mercer since that is where my father was placed (the Childrens Home Society, in Trenton) if anyone can help me locate my grandparents or a member of her family or his family it would be so much appreciated. My father does not have a computer so that is another reason I have posting this query. He will be 67 in May and I am also interested in my medical history, for the six kids that my parents have all have medical problems that aren't on my mother's side.

Looking for more information about Margaretta CLOSSON (maiden name probably VANSANT) or her siblings. She died in Trenton, Mercer County in 1877 according to her will. She was the widow of William CLOSSON. She was born in PA (not sure where) around 1800. Her will lists brother Cornelius VANSANT, nephew Courtland Wilson (my ancestor), nieces Mary Ann BAKER, Sarah KULP, and nephew James WINDSOR. Also lists her late husband's niece Jane McGARVEY and her cousin Fannie WALKER, wife of Benjamin WALKER of Philadelphia. From the above information in the will I assume that she was Margaretta VANSANT who married William CLOSSON. Also, I assume she had one brother named Cornelius VANSANT and a number of sisters, one who married a WILSON, one who married a BAKER, one who married a KULP,and one who married a WINDSOR. However, the nieces could already be using married names, so they may have different maiden name(s). *** I am particularly interested in finding out about the VANSANT sister who married a WILSON, as I do not know who Courtland WILSONs' parents were. *** Quaker ties: Margaretta CLOSSON left $500 in her will to the Trenton Quaker meeting on the corner of Hanover and Montgomery streets (Hicksite at the time). From this I assume she was a Quaker.

These are names common to the WEST family of Mercer County, New Jersey, especially the Hamilton Square, Groveville, Yardville area.
