Connector needed for Rev War John Tilton

+2 votes

John Tilton-1351 is currently attached as a son of Samuel TIlton-1352, but the evidence is tenuous. Only one source, William Haslet Jones, has the connection, with no documentation.

In general, there are very few known facts about Samuel Tilton-1352.

There are at least 4 John Tiltons from NJ who served in the Revolutionary War, and they can be hard to sort out, but this one has a FindAGrave page and was married to Mary Sutphen.

I really hate to rely on a FindAGrave page.

Hi Lois, have you seen the New Jersey Sources Guide?

In particular, I would look at the Documents series (always look at the print index to each book of wills, Ancestry's database does not include all names) and the Early Land Records database (which can help establish a timeline and sometimes relationships). 

As for offline, print-only sources, I will have a look for you in the GMNJ index. There are likely ratables available.
