  3. [John] appeared in a 1698 census of West Chester Town, NY, when he was listed as "sarvant" in the household of John Headen, his grandfather (18 NY G&B Rec. 129). After 1698 there is no mention of John[2] Clevenger in New York records. In 1699, however, a John Clevenger appears in the records of Monmouth Co., NJ. It seems to be a unanimous assumption by those of us pursuing this family that it is the same John Clevenger from New York who was in New Jersey from 1699 for some years. The assumption seems reasonable in view of the disappearance of John[2] from New records and the prompt appearance of a John Clevenger in New Jersey records. Source: George R.

Is there a primary source for John Good Clevenger marrying Mary Platt? Two of John Good Clevenger's sons married women named Platt, so it seems unlikely that their mother also had a Platt family name. The marriages of the sons Thomas and Abraham in New Jersey are well-sourced.
