BATSON/DRAKE - I am reseaching the BATSON
line. My husband's gggrandfather was Aaron Drake BATSON. He was born Oct
2, 1815, in Morris Co., NJ. His death certificate states that his father
was Daral or maybe Daniel BATSON. The problem I have is that I have been
unable to locate anyone by this name and of the right age to be Aaron's
father in Morris Co, NJ. His mother's maiden name might have been DRAKE,
although I do not know for sure what it was. This is a shot in the dark.
Aaron left NJ sometime before 1846, when he married Sarah in Canada.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

relationship due to recurrence of names among William/Nancy's children.

BLACKWELL/GARDNER - I am looking desperately for
birth or marriage records on a Robert Blackwell - noted on my GGG
Grandfathers (Lewis Gardner Blackwell) death certificate - as his father -
I found a letter in the Public Library at Flemington requesting
information noting that Robert Blackwell was Robert Lanning Blackwell b.
Hackettstown N.J. b. 8/17/1789 and supposably died at Newport Pa on
5/18/1867. The letter suggested that he was supposed to be married to a
Sara Ann Gardner. Robert - I believe - was the son of Elijah Blackwell and
Martha Lanning - and have a copy of Elijah's will naming Robert in it. If
you know of the names of old Churches in Hackettstown that might be
helpfull - I can call them and ask them to check their records if they
still exist. Would also like to know if the Blackwell - Gardner Connection
sounds familiar. One of Lewis Gardner Blackwells children was named
Gardner Blackwell. Any help or direction would be appreciated. I've been
to the Hackettstown Historical Society and copied their whole file on
Blackwells but found nothing related to my Robert except the same will
that I had already found. Thank you in advance for any help you might be
able to provide.

CASTNER, FINE, DUDLEY, PEARCE, GUERIN, MARZLOFF -
My gg-grandparents were Laura Jane CASTNER and Samuel FINE, both born
around 1862-63. They lived or were born in Changewater or Little
Washington, NJ. Laura may have died in 1937 in Phillipsburg, NJ or Peru,
NY? I have some information on the Castner side, but nothing on Samuel. No
one seems to know where he is from. Speculations are from England to
Jamestown, VA in 1609, or Louisanna, or last name was FINN and misspelled
to FINE. Does anyone, perhaps in the CASTNER family, have any information?
Would love to have some CASTNER contacts too, need to verify dates. Also
have no information of origination on my g-grandmother, Mary Louise DUDLEY
Fine (b: 1883, d: 1967) (married to Harry Carl FINE - Samuels son),
perhaps French Canadian, lived in Plattsburg, NY?

Hagerty, Haggerty - My name is William Robert
Hagerty and have traced my family back to early 1820s to one Thomas
Hagerty who was married to one Caroline Courson born about 1827. I found
very little help in 1850 census for Warren County because Thomas Hagerty
is not listed and may be dead. His wife is working for a doctor as a
housekeeper under her maiden name and her son William H. Hagerty is being
care for by Stephen Emonous age 62 and his wife Elizabeth This information
is taken from Fredinghugaen Township census of 1850. And on William H.
Hagerty Death record of June 19, 1915 his mother record his father as
Thomas Hagerty of U.S.A. Yet I cannot find any other reference to Thomas
Birth, Death, Location.
I have found out from census records from Warren county in townships of
Stillwater, Blairstown, and Frelinghugsen that my Grandfather was born in
Blairstown in 1899 to Harvey C Hagerty and Margaret Katural France (Who
Whose marriage record I found in Trenton These are my problems
1. I cannot find death record of Harvey C Hagerty who died before 1936, I
Know this because his son signed up for Social Security in 1936 and listed
both parents as deceased .
2.Harveys father was one William H Hagerty who was married to Hannah C
Harmmond from both william and Hannah death records I found there date of
birth and date of death. William Died in Jun 19, 1915 in Blairstown and is
listed a being buried in Stillwater Cemetary I made trip up there and
found no grave marker for his place.
3. William's Father is listed as Thomas Haggerty and his mother is
Caroline Courson yet I find no marriage record of them and going back to
the 1850 census Caroline Courson is house hold of a doctor listed as house
keeper and her son is living in Frelinghugen Township census in house hold
of Steven Emmons and wife Elisabeth as a 13 moth old, Which leads me to
belive that Thomas has either pass away, abadand them or move out of the
area. I am trying to trace my family back to when they arrived in United
States and it appears so fare that They have been in North Jersey since
the early 1820's but I cann't verify this as yet. Since Warren County is
so far removed from South Jersey meaning your Historical society is only
open 2-4 on Sunday I cann't get up there and Trenton records have help but
it apperars I am at an impass as to going back farther than Thomas on my
Father Father side, I have a little move information on his mothers side
So any help would be greatly received and any record or added information
I have I will be willing to share with anyone who could help. Photos or
any family history is what I need Any help would be thankful Please email.

METTLER, MEESHOW, MEDLAR, WOOLEVER, THATCHER, BUSHEE
- I am searching for information on my ggg-grandfather, Francis METTLER
(b. 6 Dec 1796 Monmouth Co. NJ) and married a Hannah MEESHOW (sic) in the
Village of Washington, Warren Co. on 20 Feb 1821. The 1830 Warren Co.
census lists a Francis MEDLAR and a Francis MEDLAR Jr. I also found a
Francis Medler as a member of the Sussex County, Grannage Township Militia
in the 1793 Census. The METTLERS moved to Ohio around 1839. Some of the
WOOLEVER, THATCHER, and BUSHEE families married into this line and moved
to Ohio about the same time.
Also submitted - My ggg-grandfather was Francis METTLER (various spellings
incl. MEDLAR), who (according to his pension records) was born on 6 Dec
1796 in Monmouth Co. NJ. He was married to Hannah MEESHOW (could have been
MERSHAN) on 20 Feb 1821 in the Village of Washington, Warren Co.. They
moved to Ohio around 1840 with WOOLEVERS, THATCHERS, and KITCHENS. The
1830 Warren Co. Census has both Francis MEDLAR and Francis MEDLAR Jr.
living next to each other; thus I believe the elder Francis is the father
(b. abt. 1765). I have several METTLER families from this period in
Monmouth, but can't connect them. Do you think we could help each other?

METTLER - I was hoping someone living in

Dingman's Ferry Bridge, Valley Dude and Lazy K Ranches." My METTLER line
lived near Washington Village, Warren County in the early 1800's. I am
interested in the METTLERS (also MEDLAR, METLAR, METLER) and allied
families: WOOLEVER, KITCHEN, and THATCHER. My research indicates Francis
METTLER m. Hannah MEESHOW (could be MERSHON) in 1821 in the Village of
Washington. Thanks much

in Newton, NJ (Sussex county). I've been told that my grandfather met my
grandmother there when he was living there with relatives although noone
knows which relatives or has any names for me. My grandmother is Helen
Louise Dean Wilgus originally from the Washington, NJ area. I am trying to
