THOMAS CARLE lived on Long Island, and had two sons:

Jona; Jacob.

Jona Carle sold, in the year 1729, to Benjamin Pettit, of New Rochelle, in the State of New York, 105 acres of land adjoining Passaic River, and yet in the Pettit family.

In the deed, from John Blanchard for the Church Parsonage lot, Jacob Carle is said to adjoin it on the west; therefore it would seem that Jacob Carle and Jona Carle owned from the Parsonage lot up the river, to about the middle of the Pettit farm, and that Jacob sold the remainder to Elnathan Cory, who subsequently owned it.

Jacob Carle removed to the farm now owned by John Worth, on the north of Dead River. He then bought 500 acres, the one-fourth part of the Berkley Tract of 2000 acres, north of Passaic River, on which his grandson, Daniel Carle, now lives.

Jacob Carle married Rebecca Stites, daughter of William Stites, and had children:
[Carle, Jacob d. Nov 29 1769 in 67th year
Carle, Rebekah (widow of Jacob) d. Apr 30 1770 in 64th year
Carle, Timothy (son of Jacob & Rebekah) d. Sept 10 1759 in 10th year
