My GGGMother, Emily LASKEY, is reported to have been born in Trenton, NJ, July 2, 1820. Her parents were Edward LASKEY and Abigail BICKLEY. I believe they were originally from Pennsylvania. By 1840, and possibly as early as 1830, Abigail LASKEY is listed in the Philadelphia census. She may have returned there after her husband died in NJ. Is there a source for births and deaths in Trenton during the period 1815-1835/40? If so, I would appreciate help locating my LASKEYs in New Jersey.

William MORRIS, born in Philadelphia, entered military service in 1776 and served as a drummer in in Captain William Tucker's Company, followed by enlistments in a number of Hunterdon County companies which included numerous military campaigns and battles, was discharged from military service in 1783 following a lengthy imprisonment on the British Prison Ship Jersey, having been captured while on service on the privateer "Rambler", which was taken in a battle with the British frigate "Amphytrion." He married a Mary Ann REED, resided all his life in the vicinity of Hamilton Square and became the common ancestor of a large family, including those descended from his son John, who was my great, great grandfather. A number of his descendants are buried in the Hamilton Square Baptist churchyard, as I believe he also may have been (though I have not been able to document his burial). A Revolutionary War pensioner, he resided in the Hamilton Square home of Mary BARBOUR at the time of his death. I'm seeking information about William's forbears and his life in Mercer County, and would be pleased to communicate with others sharing an interest in this man.

I am trying to make a connection between my family and the family of Aaron and Nancy PIERSON or PEARSON, of Groveville and later Trenton NJ. I have a 5X7 studio portrait of a WWII soldier labeled Lester PIERSON, that came from my grandmother's house. My one surviving uncle, himself a WWII veteran, remembers going with his mother to visit a large family named PIERSON, but he doesn't know of a blood connection. My NELSON grandparents were 1st cousins (which my brother always says EXPLAINS a lot....) Anyway, their fathers James and Joseph NELSON were brothers, raised in Groveville in the 1850's, both fought in a NJ regiment in the Civil War. 1870 Groveville census. Aaron PEARSON age 39, a ships' caulker. wife Nancy age 27. Next door is my g grandfather James NELSON with his wife Agnes GOMINGER. 1880 Bordentown, Burlington Co. 2nd Ward. Aaron PEARSIN age 51, ships' caulker. Wife Nancy, sons Charles, Joseph, Richard, Edward. No near neighbors are familiar, but Bordentown is only 1 square mile. By 1880, James NELSON & family are here also, in the 3rd Ward. 1885, NJ state census, Chambersburg, Mercer Co: my other great grandparents, Joseph NELSON & Mary McCLAIN. 2 doors away are Aaron PEIRSON, Nancy, and sons Joseph, Richard, Edward, Alfred & Lester. 1886 Trenton city directory. Aaron PEARSON, ships' caulker, is at 420 Jefferson St in Chambersburg. In 1887 he is at 642 N. Willow St, Trenton. I found the Trenton TImes obituary of the Lester PIERSON of my WWII photo, and then used that & the SSDI to find obits. of some of his brothers & sisters. His brothers were (surprise!) Edward & Alfred. Sisters were Anna Pierson CHALE, who died in Hamilton twp age 96 in 1992, and Elizabeth MONK, of Lawrence Twp, who died in 1991. According to the obit for Anna Chale, these were the children of Richard PIERSON and Ella HAMFORD. I'm wondering if Nancy, the wife of Aaron Pierson, might have been born a NELSON, HARTMAN, GOMINGER or McCLAIN. Any info about this family will be appreciated. Any relative who wants a copy of Lester's photo may have one.

I am looking for information about Elias TAYLOR born around 1835-1840 in Hamilton (then Trenton), NJ. I believe his family owned a farm in the Hamilton/White Horse area. He married Ednietta MOUNT, who was from Hightstown. They were of Presbyterian faith. They had a daughter Sarah Jane, born 1861 (1862), who was my great grandmother. Can you tell me anything about Elias? When was he born? When he died, where? And most importantly, what was his father's first name? Thank you for your help.

I formerly resided in Trenton, New Jersey, and my dad was Naturalized in the Mercer County Court, and it occured prior to the time that the Naturalizations occured in the Federal District Court. My dad arrived here I believe after 1910, and he married my mother, Catherine (aka Katarzyna etc.), and also, the Surname of a lady in Polish is often written with an "a" at the end, instead of an "i". Thus, her surname may be "ZOLTANSKA". I lived at 1804 Chestnut Ave., until I joined the U.S. Navy in 1944. What information is available about my parents, i.e. Naturalization, dates of entry into the U.S., they arrived thru Ellis Island. Also, I was in Poland recently and a family there asked if I could look up something about their relatives who also arrived about the same time as my parents, and her Surname was SLABICKA (I) and the given name was Zofia, and the last address they had was on Coates St., which is now a part of an expressway. The parents of this lady were Slabicki Wojciech and Slabicka Hafia. Also, is there someone there who could look up these public records for me for compensation? Please advise me. Respectfully yours.
