Yes. I first became interested in Quaker genealogy when I observed on census records that my mixed-race ancestors continued to be surrounded by the same Quaker families whenever they migrated. Those same Quaker names appeared as witnesses on their Free Negro Registrations. I then learned the history of Quakers buying/assisting slaves and free blacks and getting them to free states. When I turned to my father's line, I found that they were among the earliest Quakers to arrive (mid1600s). Haddonfied, New Jersey was named for my 7th g-grandfather, John Haddon, whose daughter, Elizabeth came alone to America to manage her father's lands and established that town. I descend through her adopted son (her sister's youngest son), Ebenezer Hopkins, and then the Jennings line. Because of the famous unclaimed inheritance of William Jennens/Jennings of Acton, many families on both sides of the Atlantic and Australia have thoroughly researched this family in an attempt to connect. A copy of that branch of our tree has been in my family for years. I am eager to connect with others from this line of NJ Quakers (later moved to Warren Co. OH, then to Wabash and Huntington Co IN. where they turned into Methodists.
