Biographical and Genealogical History of Morris County New Jersey. Illustrated. Vol. II., Lewis Publishing Company, New York and Chicago, 1899.

John H. CONDIT, of Troy Hills, fully sustains the high reputation which has always been maintained by his family during their long connection with Morris county and its interests. He is the youngest son of the late John O. CONDIT and was born on the 7th of November, 1835, spending the days of childhood and youth upon the farm which he now owns. During the winter season he attended the schools near by, and through the summer months he aided in the cultivation and improvement of his father's farm until he had attained an age sufficient to begin farming on his own account. His entire life has been devoted to agricultural pursuits and he is a wide-awake, progressive farmer, but manages his interests after the most improved methods of modern farming.

On the 7th of November, 1869, Mr. CONDIT was united in marriage to Miss Carrie BOSTEDO, daughter of John M. and Sarah (EGBERT) BOSTEDO. Their children are

  • Howell and
  • Bessie.

Mr. CONDIT is one of the unswerving supporters of the Republican party in Hanover township, and has filled the office of justice of the peace, discharging his duties with marked fidelity and ability. Mrs. CONDIT is a member of the Presbyterian church at Parsippany, where the family attend worship.
