Biography

John Cory born 3 Feb. 1673/4 in Huntington, Suffolk, LI, NY; died 30 Dec. 1720, 1721 or 1722 in Elizabethtown, Essex Co., NJ; buried in old Presbyterian Church yard in Elizabethtown, NJ; occupation farmer/merchant. Records show that John bought 63 acres of land from David Watkins in 1719 about 2.5 miles from Westfield. He resided on that land until his death in 172__. (conflicting years of death, see explanation below).

John Cory was possibly married three times. His wives were Mary Cornish, Priscilla Osborn and Priscilla Day. Some records have "Priscilla Day Osborn" and care must be used in ascribing John's offspring.

John Cory married Priscilla Osborn, daughter of Joseph Osborn and Priscilla Roberts on 16 Mar. 1697/8, in Elizabethtown, Essex Co., NJ. She was born in 1677 in Elizabethtown, NJ and died there on 16 Dec. 1723.

John /Cory/[3]

Birth

Date: 03 Feb 1674
Place: Huntington,Long Island,New York,USA[4]
Date: 3 Feb 1673 or 1674

Found multiple copies of BIRTH DATE. Using 03 Feb 1674; "USA" incorrect but kept as part of source.

Death

Date: 1 Dec 1720 possibly, but not earlier. John's will was dated 3 March 1720; it was proven 7 January 1723. His death was recorded as December 30, no year given. Therefore it is likely that he died in 1722, eight days before the Will ws proven. But it is also possible he died in 1721 or 1720, but less likely.
Place: Essex, Union, New Jersey, USA[6]
