BRITON, EASTLICK:
Elizabeth BRITON (b.abt 1762), said of Trenton, was married to Alexander EASTLICK (b.1741, NJ) prior to 1795 as is witnessed by their Jul 1796 baptism of daughter Betcy in Walpack, Sussex County. Alexander was 21 years Elizabeth's senior and, likely, this was not his first marriage. Likewise, maybe, for Elizabeth as the 1790 Census (Northampton Co., PA) showed no children for the EASTLICK household while later censuses indicated that two young boys should have been tallyed in 1790. This suggests that a widow Elizabeth may have brought her two boys to a marriage to a widower Alex about 1794 and that Betcy may have been their first child together. Based on another researcher's note, Elizabeth BRITON (BRITTON) was "from Trenton". So I need to hear of any Elizabeth born to a BRITTON in Trenton during 1761-1762. If that doesn't work, I'll need to consider a BRITTON marrying an Elizabeth in Trenton, about 1783, and, in conjunction, remembering that one of those "lost" boys of 1790 was born about 1785. As Alex was a veteran of the Revolutionary War, perhaps Elizabeth had a penchant for older men and had been widowed of a militiaman named BRITTON.

BRITTON/BRITTAIN, Joseph b. ca. 1786, possibly the son of Isaac BRITTON who is listed in Nottingham Township [now Mercer Co.] in the 1793 Militia census of NJ.

Isaac was a resident of Trenton until sometime after 1783 when he was sued and lost his business, the Indian King Hotel. Joseph b. 1786 went to McKean Co., PA having bought property there in 1822 and working on it until 1829 when he moved his family there. He died there sometime between 1850 and 1860. He married Nancy ?, but she may have been a second wife. His children are as follows: Nathaniel born October 15, 1817; William born ca. 1823/24; Daniel born ca. 1829 (just before the family left NJ) and Thomas born ca. 1837.

CONWAY, BLACK:
My great grandfather, Patrick CONWAY, declared his intention to become a citizen of the U.S. on 25 October 1860 listing his address as Creamridge, NJ in Mercer County. He had married Elizabeth BLACK and they had one child by that date, John CONWAY, born in 1859. Both Patrick & Elizabeth had emigrated from Ireland, he in 1855. I don't know where or when they were married but, since they were Irish Catholics, I assumed it happened in a Catholic Church and am hoping it happened around Creamridge. Does anyone know of a Catholic Church around Creamridge in the middle-late 1850's and whether any data was recorded regarding birthplaces of those getting married? I have been told that Catholic marriages were typically not recorded by public officials. I am going to Ireland the end of May and would like to have some idea where Patrick and Elizabeth were born in Ireland. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I am doing genealogy research on a Samuel EWING who is my ggg-grandfather. He was born Oct. 18 1787 somewhere in New Jersey. He was married to Margaret MORFORD and had 5 children, Samuel Jr, Robert F., Mary Ann, Joel, and Henry. Samuel's father was James EWING who was born in Scotland and later came over to America. I do not know if Samuel had any brothers or sisters. Perhaps one of them or Samuel himself had a connection with Ewing, New Jersy. I think that Samuel died in Randolph, New York. I would appreciate any information you could give me on the town of Ewing to see if I have an ancestors there. Thank you for your time.

JEMISON, RAKE:
I'm trying to track down the descendants of William Henry JEMISON (b:c1829) and Melissa RAKE (b:c1826) for a fellow RAKE researcher. They were married in Mercer County, NJ in 1851. Based on the 1860 census they were living in Hamiliton Twp and had two children (Amy b:c1856 and Thomas b:May 1860). On the 1870 census for Mercer County there is a William JEMMERSON with a wife Martha which appears to be the same family (perhaps Melissa passed on). While the census does not list Amy it does refer to Thomas (b:1860 now age 10) and twins, Emily and Martha, :Dec 1869. I may be wrong on this being the same family but what appears to be William's father Henry (and wife Ann) appear on both census' either right above or below William. I've also found a Thomas JEMISON b:May 1860 in the 1880 NJ census for Trenton, Mercer Cty. which would appear to be the son. Listed with him is his wife Alfreta b:Jan 1864 and children William (c:Aug 1883), Charles (b:Dec 1889) and twins, Earl and Nellie (b: Nov 1897). In the 1920 census there is a William and Anna JAMIESON (no children but William is the right age) and a Charles JENISON (also the right age -- wife Helen and sons Houles and Wendal) living in Trenton, Mercer Cty., NJ. My interest in the family revolves around Melissa RAKE. A fellow researcher was in contact with family descendants living in Trenton, NJ in the 1960/70's who had in their possession the family bible of Melissa RAKE's father William RAKE b:c1776 (my 4th great grand father). We are hoping to regain contact in order to get a written copy of the family information contained in the bible (not necessarily the bible itself -- though we wouldn't refuse). Any information anyone reading this can provide in tracking down the current holders of this irreplaceable family item would be greatly appreciated. Helen has been researching the RAKE family from Hunterton Cty., NJ for years and while we (Helen and I) only have contact via snail mail and telephone I thought I'd put the wonders of the modern world behind our search. Thanks for your help.

In the 1860 census for Mercer Co. there is a George KLEINKAUF and family listed. Wife Helene, son George Jr. born NJ 1854, daughter Anna Mery born NJ 1856, son Frank S. born NJ 1860. They are also listed in 1870 and 1880 census. In 1900 Helene is listed as a widow living with Anna and Frank in Trenton. George Jr is not listed. I later have Frank married and producing a son born in Isle of Pines Cuba by the name of George. This second George died in Trenton in Sept 1972. Does any one have mortality records for 1880-1900 that could find out when George (1.) died or marriage records for the same period that could check George Jr or know of any descendants of this branch of the family living today. I would be willing to pay a reasonable sum for help in these matters.

SMITH:
I am seeking information on Philip SMITH, born 6 March 1760 Maidenhead, [now Mercer Co.], NJ, died 1833 (date taken from settlement of estate) in Trigg Co., KY. Family records indicate he married 10 October 1786 Terissa HERRIN. Philip SMITH served in the NJ State Line during the Revolution War. He is known to be a relative to another veteran, Jonathan SMITH, who also served in the NJ State Line and who also settled in Todd Co, KY, which adjoins Trigg Co., KY. Philip and Jonathan were thought to have been residing in Culpeper Co. VA by 1795 until last entered on tax records in 1897. Philip SMITH's son, George W. SMITH, was born 25 January 1795, Culpeper Co. VA and resided in the Culpeper-Orange Co., VA area until his death 25 Jan. 1889. Since Philip SMITH died intestate in 1833 in KY, little mention is made of heirs in the settlement of his estate. One daughter, Clarissa Smith THOMPSON (Mrs. Moses THOMPSON) is mentioned as is grandson Jonathan SMITH. Mrs. THOMPSON is known to have had one heir, Mrs. Evalina PETTY, who was accepted by DAR upon application using Philip's Revolutionary War service record. I would like to establish, if possible, a primary source link between Philip SMITH of NJ and KY and George W. SMITH of Culpeper/Orange Co., VA. I have much primary source material which I will exchange with those researching Philip SMITH, George W. SMITH, or Jonathan SMITH, a relative to Philip, even tho the exact relationship is not yet known. All responses will be appreciated.
