I'm a project coordinator for the New Sweden Project and the New Jersey Project. If you are working on colonial New Jersey profiles, I would be happy to suggest research strategies.


Research Interests


My mother is an English immigrant of proud working class origins. Besides the many laborers and working people in her tree, some interesting maternal ancestors include "japanners", a POW in the Napoleonic Wars, and a bigamist who was exiled to Australia.

My dad's a descendant of over a hundred known U.S. colonial immigrants. They were farmers, adventurers, mariners, Puritans, and Quakers, migrating to New Jersey from Philadelphia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Amsterdam, New Sweden, and one from the Virginia Colony (maybe). Many migrated from Long Island when land in New Jersey became available. Others landed in the Garden State and stayed put.  :)

Brick Walls

I would love to solve the brick walls of Joseph Stratton & Rosanna (Layton, White) Stratton of Philadelphia and Clayton Township, Gloucester County. They were born in the 1820s and died after 1885.

The only place I have this surname is on their son's death certificate. On her son's marriage record, her name is Layman.

Another pair of brick walls I'd like to solve is Cornelius Shaw and Phebe Joslin.

These are my other U.S. family brick walls: CT, MA, NY, NJ, PA.

You betcha, Heater! I'm working on the Husteds as part of my ongoing effort to identify slaveowners in CT, mostly Fairfield County. To be sure I've got the right person from the 1790 or 1800 Census, I need to fill in around them. I'll be at this awhile longer. FYI, here's what I've got for the category so far:

Thank you for your message. I'm new to this on Wiki tree. I've been using just ancestry. Captain Silas Husted is my 4th great-grandfather. Thru his son Silas (jr) whose daughter is Dorcas (1855-1921) who married Franklin Hubbard (1858-1935) whose daughter Viola Pitcher is my great grandmother. So it's really proven that Rebecca Sherwood (1625-1704) did not marry Angell Heusted I (1620-1706)?

Thank you for your message in regards to Hannah (Cooper) Woolston. I have cleaned up the biography and sources for her. I can only state that her father was William Cooper- this was from the marriage record of John Woolston and Hannah. See Hannah's biography. Thank you.

Hi Heather, I've started a G2G regarding the inclusion/exclusion of WNJ settlers in the Penn project:


see you there!

Hi Heather, thanks for your messages. It looks like this profile (and others) were put in the project in 2015 and in dialogue with others working on the project it seemed that WJ would be included. If it is alright with you, I will start a G2G thread on this topic and we can hash it out there; in this way, everyone can put in their 2 cents and once it is resolved, there will be a record for reference. Cheers, SJ.

Hi Heather, thanks for your message about Samuel Wilson. The Penn project covers what is now Pennsylvania and the areas that were originally settled as part of Pennsylvania to include west New Jersey and some counties in Delaware. It appears that Samuel landed in Burlington - this town was founded by Penn Quakers who landed at Chygoes island. Indeed, the founders of Burlington had Penn commissioners in their party and many had land patents negotiated before they left England. Here are some references that may help to explain: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Grubb http://www.ushistory.org/penn/pennnj.htm https://www.geni.com/projects/Quakers-of-New-Jersey-Kent-Passengers-1677/291

Hi Heather,

I’m Steven, coordinator of the Categorization Project. Please have a look at the revamped Categorization Project page, specifically about the new team approach. Members will be now be part of the Maintenance Team. Project Liaisons and leaders will be involved in the Vision and Collaboration team.

... between 1827 and 1955. So if I undestand correctly - two Salem meetings in New Jersey, one in Salem, the other in Woodstown. (Bryn Mawr link)

Hi Heather, thanks you for your message on the Quaker Meeting Category Names space. I am admittedly not the specialist, but here is what the Bryn Mawr entry says;

"Salem Monthly Meeting was established in 1676. It became part of Salem Quarterly Meeting in 1682. In 1827, after the Hicksite Separation in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, the meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. In 1955, after the two Philadelphia Yearly Meetings reunited, there remained two Salem Monthly Meetings. Salem Monthly Meeting at Woodstown, the former Orthodox meeting, was discontinued in 1977. Salem Monthly Meeting at Salem, the former Hicksite meeting, is currently an active monthly meeting." The only Salem, New Jersey meeting category we have is for the one located in Salem - the one which was Hicksite..
