Research Interests

I'm a project coordinator for the New Sweden Project and the New Jersey Project.


My mother is an English immigrant.

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. He was a Revolutionary patriot, she might be a descendant of people who survived a massacre in King Phillip's War. Maybe.

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

Heather, thank you for the research you've been doing on Edward Bradwell and other New Jersey pioneers. The "Corrections to Shourds'" source is new to me and particularly helpful - I will be using it often.

Have you seen Shadwell, Middlesex at "A Vision of Britain through Time", a project of University of Portsmouth and others?

Maybe it throws some light on other research about where Bradway was from?

I love maps, so this is one of my favorite sources.

Heather, I completed the merge for Edward Bradway's profiles, and compliment you on your sources.

I have a feeling you are more familiar with him than myself, and ask that you correct any mistakes I may have made in the merging.

Also, thank you for your inline footnotes, very helpful!!

best regards,

Re: Mary Applegate

I have found no information about the identity of her parents, not even circumstantial.

Hi Heather,

I did get your merger request. My husband is related to Ruth Cope, his grandfather was Richard Benton Beeson and Julia Louella Dwinell. Richard was orphaned at around age 7 and taken in by his uncle’s family.His uncle and father were both found to be in disunity with the Quakers at approximately the same time. His parents died of paralysis. At a 50th wedding anniversary of one of the uncle that raised him, it was noted that there may have been some wife swapping or sharing going on between these brothers in Pennsylvania. But we have never gained access to these Quaker records. I would love to merge the Cope’s but have never really had my hands on actual data on Ruth’s siblings. Over the next week, I will recheck, Thank you, MaryDon E Beeson

Yes, Bustill is interesting, and part of an interesting line. Since he's an open profile, anyone can contribute, so although there's no policy against creating orphaned profiles, I didn't understand why it was necessary. Do you follow if people take on any of the profiles orphaned?

I connected Paul Robeson to the tree, via his wife's ancestor Aaron Cardozo who was already on the tree. Why did you create Cyrus Bustill then remove yourself as manager? Is there a Quaker project or 1776 project that could take on management of Bustill's profile?

Hi Heather,

I am doing OK. Hope all is well with you. Are you completely settled in yet? I was supposed to finish a boring list of things like income tax and probate filings, but you enticed me away with the problem of Henry Coleman. I have found a few specifics, including the original source documents that tie him to the Long Finn Rebellion, and the fine he received, and his brother's will (1698). Those are all mentioned by Craig in the 1693 census (family no. 71 in the Wicaco area). He is on P. 76 at http://nc-chap.org/cranehook/pdfs/wicaco1693.pdf

Unfortunately, not much detail on the wife. I'll add the three primary sources I have (and two other secondary) in the next day or so. You can run with the 1693 Census, if you like.
