I am interested in learning more about Annabelle, wife of John (Jack) COFFEY, who died in 1971 and is buried in Groveville Cemetery. Was she the adopted daughter of Rev. Albert CAIN? Can anyone tell me the precise date of her death or her name before marriage? Thank you.

I am seeking information on my 3rd great grandfather David B. HILL, born 1805, died 1888. He is buried in Dutch Neck Cemetery, Princeton Junction, Mercer County. From what I can tell he lived in Mercer County most of his life and was a Blacksmith. He was married to Margaret Ann CONOVER, born 1807, died 1898. I am unable to find any information on the parents of David B. Hill and would greatly appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide.

I found a marriage for John READ and Rebecca GIBERSON who married in 1802 in Middlesex County, NJ. My Rebecca READ/REED was born circa June 1774 in Mercer County, NJ, per her death certificate. She married a John READ/REED around 1800. Her children were David, Wilson, Abijah, Rebecca and John. She died in 1870 in Gloucester County, NJ. I have not yet been able to determine her maiden name and am wondering if anyone in Mercer County could shed some light on this 1802 marriage or my REEDS. Thanks!

Hello, my name (married) is PAGE, but my maiden name is SCHUMACHER. My great-grandfather Peter SCHUHMACHER (b. 1864 in Austro-Hungary) and my grandfather Georg SCHUHMACHER (b. 1892) came to Trenton at the beginning of the 20th century; my father George SCHUMACHER was born there in 1912 but moved away in the 1930's; my great-uncle Peter SCHUMACHER (b. 1901 in Austro-Hungary) continued to live there, as did his son Peter and grandson Peter born in 1956. After that I have lost their traces. All the other children of my great-grandfather died without SCHUMACHER issue -- we would have to search under other names. I myself live in France so I do not know how I could help with the research. Thank you in advance.

[No surname]:
I am searching without a surname; looking for a man who was possibly in Trenton, NJ, area in the 1950's. He was born in Yugoslavia, married a woman who was Polish but born in Germany. Had a daughter possibly named Vera in 1953, also a son later. He was a carpenter by trade, wife a housewife. He died in 1960 from a kidney infection. They were both Roman Catholic. Vera dropped out of school after the 10th grade and worked as a waitress and a sales person. She was about 5'7, 135 pounds, light brown hair, blue-gray eyes and was in the Trenton area in 1969-1970, possibllity in a home for unwed mothers. Please, if this sounds like anyone you may know contact me.
