Just beginning research on two families that settled in Trenton circa 1900 from Russia: ALEXANDER and GARBER - respectively, the father (Benjamin ALEXANDER) and mother (Rose GARBER) of my father, Harold ALEXANDER, a lifelong Philadelphia resident. They were both born in 1898 and both, coincidentally, rooted in the same Russian community, Vilna, near the Western border. Rose, I am told, came here as an infant but her father, according to recently uncovered records, first arrived here in 1894 (haven't figured out how that's possible yet). Ben was born in Philadelphia, but raised in Trenton. I assume they all came here through Ellis Island but that's only a guess. And I've always been told that the name was not ALEXANDER in Russia, but was Anglicized upon arrival in USA. Rose's parents were Bernard and Bertha GARBER. Benjamin's parents were Joseph and Rachel ALEXANDER. If you can help, please contact me.

NELSON, MCCLAIN, GOMMINGER, MCCLURE:
My great grandfathers, Joseph and James NELSON were brothers. Their parents were Andrew NELSON and Selina HARTMAN, married Burlington Co 1836. Selina and five sons, Aaron, William, Joseph, James and Henry were living in Groveville, Mercer Co. in 1850. Henry, James and Joseph all fought in NJ regiments in the Civil War and are buried under GAR headstones in the Groveville Methodist Cemetery. Joseph married Mary McCLAIN, daughter of Robert McCLAIN (b Scotland), who was living in Groveville in 1870. James married Agnes GOMMINGER, daughter of James and Mary GOMMINGER of Bordentown in Burlington Co. Seek info Andrew: I have no birth or death date, but it seems that Selina in 1857 married her much younger neighbor, Leonard McCLURE. They show as man and wife in the 1860 Mercer census. by 1880 Leonard was married to an "Eliza" and the two of them proceeded to raise a family, including Leonard Jr who appears in the Trenton City Directory in 1897 as a barber. There is no death certificate in NJ for Selina McCLURE, but a Selina NELSON died in 1869 in Hamilton Twp. I would desparately like to contact any NELSON relatives. Would also like to find any descendants of these McCLURE and possibly solve the mystery of Selina and Leonard. I know there are GOMMINGER and possibly McCLAIN descendants still living in the Mercer and Burlington Co areas.

ROBBINS, HOW, GREEN, STERLING, MASON:
I have recently discovered a journal from 1777 and re-written by a relative named Charles Henry MASON.
