Daniel Bayles, the son of John Bayles and Ruth Rusco, was born about 1683 at Jamaica, Long Island, and died about 1752 at Kingston, New Jersey. He moved from Long Island to New Jersey soon after 1708. He first married Sarah ____ and they had 3 children: Daniel, Samuel, and John. He later married Elizabeth Waters.
In his original book, Howard Green Bayles said that Daniel's first wife and the mother of his children was Sarah Ludlum. In the 1946 supplement to that book Bayles states "The first wife of Daniel seems to have been Sarah, as shown by the Hunterdon Co. Minute Book 1-10. But she was not Sarah Ludlum. The ref. given by J.B.J. (601) refers to a Sarah Ludlum of nearly a century later. There was a Sarah Denton b. Nov. 1681 at Springfield, Mass. Nothing is known of her. As the Bayles and Denton families were close friends she may have m. Daniel. No proof whatever.
There is a newspaper account of his second marriage (NY Gazette, Nov. 25, 1751) Late in life Daniel married Widow Elizabeth (Whitehead?) Waters. and another account of the dissolution of that marriage shortly afterward (NY Gazette, March 16, 1752). Daniel Bayles was included in the New Brunswick tax rolls for the years 1748 and 1750 but was not on the rolls of December 1752 indicating that he was probably dead by that time.
