CHAMBERS, Alexander and John. John CHAMBERS came from Co. Antrim in 1730. Had two sons, Alexander and David. David went to Philadelphia, Alexander stayed in Trenton.

Looking for marriage and baptism of three children listed above. John and Alexander were prominent in said church. Would appreciate any tips!

Cornish in Mercer County:
I am researching for a book on "The Cornish in New Jersey" and, so far, have 2,500 hundred names of individuals and families. They are from all 21 counties, but predominate in Morris, Sussex and Warren due to the mines in that area and the fact that, knowing the Cornish were around the mines, I have concentrated my efforts there so far. "By TRE-, POL-, and PEN- Ye shall know most Cornishmen." So goes the saying. Names such as TREGO (found in Mercer County), TRELEASE, TREMAINE, TRENGOVE, TREVITHICK, TREVASKIS, TREWEEK, TRELAWNY, TREDINNICK, and variations such as TRUSCOTT, TRYTHALL are all very Cornish names. POL- is POLLARD, POLKINGHORN, POLGREEN, POLLAK, POLLOK, POLLOCK, POLMEAR (or PELMEAR), POLSUE, POLWIN, or POOL, POOLE, POLWELL (though usually Welsh) PEN- names are PENHALLOW, PENDRAY, PENFOUND, PENGELLY, PENNA, PENLERICK, PENPRAZE, PENTREATH, PENVER, PENWARNE (or PENWARDEN) and more. There are also many other Cornish names: HOCKING, TOY, LOBB, VIVIAN, PASCOE, PAWLEY, ROSVEAR, SAWLE, TRURAN, CURNOW (means Cornwall in Cornish), CORNISH, BONYTHON, GEACH, JAGO, JOSE, NANCE, NANKERVIS, NANCARROW, CRAGO, CRAZE and many, many more. If you believe you might have a Cornish ancestor who lived, even for a short time in New Jersey, please let me know.

My grandparents lived in Trenton for over 70 years, and I am trying to find out information regarding my grandmother's family. My grandparents were Morris and Rachel DEITZ. Morris died in 1979 and Rae died in 1970. They lived at 619 West State Street for many, many years, then at the Trent Center Apartments on Greenwood Avenue. My grandfather owned a lot of real estate in Trenton, with 689-691 South Broad Street. He was a Jeweler at 691 South Broad. My grandfather has no other connections to Trenton, as his entire family was from Brooklyn, NY. It is my grandmother I wish to focus on. I believe her maiden name was BULITSKY or BELITSKY. She had a brother, either Abe or Isaac, I do not know. I think her mother, my great-grandmother, passed away, and my great-grandfather remarried and had children. Rae had many half-brothers and sisters. I recall the names of GOLD, ZENTNER, ORELAND and SHLOSSBERG. I remember a David GOLD and Goldie ZENTNER all living in Trenton, either Hermitage Avenue, Parkside Avenue, or in that neighborhood. The ORELANDs owned a funeral home on Pennington Road. I guess you know how families are. My dad, who was a Trenton optometrist, and my grandfather, always had strange relations with their family. By the time I was old enough to ask questions, my grandmother was already in a nursing home and had no memory left. In addition, there are members of my mother's family I would like to try to locate. The names were Felton and Charles LEVINSON. They lived in Trenton during the 50's to the 60's. Thank you.

Seeking info about the FAGANS family. Alfred FAGANS, a merchant, was born in 1845 in Mercerville, NJ. I think his parents were William FAGANS (born 1799? died Oct.21, 1881 in Mercerville) and Lydia CHAMBERS (born August 6, 1806, died Sept. 17, 1876?). Humphrey FAGANS (died 1799) and his wife Mary were William's parents. According to an essay titled "John Paul Jones' Mercer Descendants" written by Joseph H. (Joe Harry) West in July 1905, the mother of either Humphrey or Mary was named Polly and she was John Paul JONES' niece. However, John Paul JONES' brother, William Paul, had no known descendants. I believe they also had a sister, but have no info regarding her. Joe Harry West also wrote an essay titled "The Old Appleton Homestead" about Cornelius APPLETON and Mary COX and their descendants. I have copies of both essays. Interested parties, please contact:

I am searching for my g-grandfather, William H. HENDRICKSON, born 1845 in NJ (location unknown). Family legend says that the family was Swedish and may have spelled the surname HENDRIXSON or HENDRIXON originally. William H. was one of five brothers of a shoemaker and his first wife. When the first wife died, the five brothers left home because they hated their father's second wife. William H. was a Civil War veteran, but we don't know what state he enlisted in (although NJ, NY, or PA are likely). After the war, he became a sewing machine salesman and met my g-grandmother, Emma Frances Kenaga, in Champaign County, Ohio where they were married in 1875. They had four children: three girls, Clara, Helen, and Frances E., and my grandfather, John Kenaga HENDRICKSON (born 28 Aug 1878 in Ohio). If someone has access to the 1850 census, William H. should have been listed as 5 years old in his father's household. Does anyone out there recognize any links to Mercer County? Would appreciate any information that you may have.

I am seeking the maiden names of the wives of Richard MOUNT who died in 1787 in Nottingham Twsp., Burlington Co. [now Mercer Co.], NJ. His last wife was named Lydia ____. Some descendants believe he had an earlier wife named Rebecca ____. Because a Joseph DISBROW was named guardian for some of his children, some descendants believe one of Richard's wives was a DISBROW. Because one of Richard's daughter's middle name was Konover, some descendants believe one of Richard's wives was a CONOVER. Also, which wife was the mother of Richard's son Matthias MOUNT b. 1761?

I am looking for information regarding the surname ROSNICK. My great-grandfather's name was Michael ROSNICK (? - 9/30/1940) and his wife's name was Julia (KWIKLINSKA sp.?) ROSNICK. They lived in Trenton (Mercer County) and had a son Albert, born in 1901. I believe my great-grandfather owned a bakery in Trenton, but later moved from the city to Helmetta (Middlesex County). His wife Julia died when their son Albert was 8 or 9. Michael ROSNICK opened a bakery in Helmetta where one of his employees was later to open MENDOKER'S bakery in Jamesburg. Michael's son Albert was raised by his aunts until he was 15, when he joined the Army. During World War I, Albert was poisoned with mustard gas and died from it on February 20, 1924. He had been married to my grandmother, Victoria (WITKOWSKI) ROSNICK for only a year and my father, also named Albert, was 9 months old. Michael ROSNICK was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Trenton on 10/3/1940 by a woman named Katharina BAK. I do not know if this woman was his sister or one of the many women he took up with following the death of his wife. Michael ROSNICK was a wealthy man for most of his life but lost it all on drinking and opportunistic women. He owned some large tracts of land in Jamesburg and Monroe Township (Middlesex County), one of which he gave away to a woman named STUMP. It became known as the Stump Farm. It is possible that Michael ROSNICK may have had an illegitimate son named Stephen ROSNICK but I know nothing about him or when he may have been born. The only other thing I know about my great-grandfather is that he was most likely a member of St. Stanislaus R.C. Church while in Trenton and belonged to Holy Trinity Church in Helmetta thereafter.

They had 6 or 7 children: John, Robert P. (my father), Edward, Agnes, Margaret, a son who died in WWI, & possibly another child. Grandfather William WALSH had many siblings, including Harry & Edward WALSH. I believe that my great-grandparents were John & Margaret WALSH, & that they lived at 471 Bellevue Ave in Trenton (across the street from Mercer Hospital). Any info appreciated.
