KUYKENDALL, KERKENDALL, CUICKENTHAEL,
KIRKENDALL - The earliest I have is a Jacob Kuykendall who was an
Indian trader guide for a boundry Commission to fix the beginning of the
Delaware River in 1714. One Jacob Cuickendal ran a canoe ferry from
Phillipsburg NJ to
Easton PA. He had a farm in NJ and 30 acres in Easton, until the local
Sheriff David Martin seized it all for taxes in 1737, including the
Phillipsburg farm. A deputy was low bidder in Easton. One year later David
Martin was granted exclusive ferry rights for 10 miles each way on The
Delaware, and took over from his deputy, quitting as sheriff, to operate
the King Georges ferry grant at Easton.
Other family members owned property as Dutch settlers, claiming large
farms on the NJ side of the Delaware River from Phillipsbug and the Water
Gap, Minnisink Island, and what later became Port Jervis NY. A Samuel
Kuykendall built the first jail in Goshen NY where he served as Justice of
the Peace. These Kuykendall decendants of a Nieu Amsterdam soldier in the
1654 army of Peter Stuyvesant records seem not to exist in early New Jersy
records, although they were on the old Mine Road that shipped copper and
silver ore, coal and farm products via Newburg NY old port facilities.
Records in early Dutch and Dutch Reformed Churches seem to list many
decendants or possibly new immigrants from Holland in the NY cities of
Kingston and Poughkeepsie, and few from the many other DRC churches. At
least 4 DRC churches existed on the old Mine Road, some for nearly 100
years of peace with the Indians. Quaker attempts to cheat Indian tribes
led to war by 1740, and legal land thefts of Dutch farmers lands after
1675 by English rulers and 1783 Quakers took over many farms, forcing
removal of Kuykendall decendants to North Carolina. These have been well
documented, as have most of the later moves to Texas as early as 1830
Austin Colony. The copper and silver mining suddenly were lost, since
Dutch settlers and Indians no longer were friendly to the English courts.
Before the use of Durham PA area to build the famous Durham boats of the
Delaware River and Washington crossing the Delaware River fame, using
local iron and coal sources, a number of mines had existed in the general
vicinity, puportedly by 'German" miners who built early canal
boats and shipped their products by canal boat up and down the Delaware. A
record existed in a local newspaper about a wagon and team crashing into a
deep hole when the mine pit supports gave way in 1722. I am interested in
the early Kuykendall records in what has been a vain attempt to locate the
parents and birthplace on 9 May 1809 of Issac Kerchanthael, later
Kerkendall. It may have been in Harmony Township NJ or in Mt Bethel Twp
area of PA, or some other place entirely. In any event I am getting along
in years, and need to solve this mystery if poiisble. I can be reached by
e-mail at email@example.com or by snail mail as John D. Sweitzer, 5008
South Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76132.

WARNE - The family I am interested in is
John Warne, born 1793, in NJ. He married Sarah Stires on Feb. 14, 1818 in
Hunterdon County, NJ. They eventually left NJ for Michigan, then Illinois.
At least two of their seven children were born in NJ: Daniel A.
(12/8/1820) and Taylor A. (1817) - Daniel would have been my Great, Great,
I have seen the name spelled Warne and Warn.
I found an article that said John Warne moved to Warren County, NJ, where
he bought a farm and opened a general store and hotel for the next 15
years. He was also a genreal contractor and contracted to excavate part of
the Morris Canal. It also mentiones that he was a surveyor and served as
justice of the peace. Then in 1831 he moved to Michigan and tought school.
I heard that a deceased aunt was in the DAR and I have written to them for
assistance. I understand that "Seth Warner" is a relative that she had
researched, but her documentation was never passed along to family and, I
believe, step-children didn't keep it.
