He appears to have migrated to Philadelphia in 1822 and then just disappears.

Can anybody find him?

With that name, it is very likely they would have Americanized

his name.If you have his exact dte birth, Month Day year.could

Thanks Betty, it's clear Newark and Phoebe weren't married then.

Nansworthy is one unique name as well. I wonder if they were related? Newark had a cousin named Pattison Rutland so the family were well into weird names.
Hi Wayne

I guess he could well have changed his name to John just to avoid explaining his name everyone all the time.
