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.

However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Heather:

Profile properly sourced for Assembly, category added. Will project box after an email to the PM - some folks are getting touchy about it these days: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/753004/how-can-wikitree-members-have-so-much-power-is-this-not-wrong

Heather - all I can find on Nils Mattsson's wife is what Craig says in the 1693 Census. She was alive for the witch-bit on 27 Feb 1684. By the 1693 census Nils lived with 2 of his grandchildren, near his son in Gloucester. So the best I've got for her death so far is after 1684 and before 1693.

Yes, looks like his. I am traveling so cannot cleanup the profile and add this. But I'll appreciate it if you do. Also, adding David with uncertain flag and commentary in both bios would be fine with me.

Hi Heather

I took the protection off of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Barantyne-1 so that you can make changes, if you would like.

I was looking at mom's sister Marjorie Ewell matches at gedmatch and I saw a Paul Husted there. A relative of yours I assume. They share segments of 6 and 20 which confirms our paper work that we're all Buckalew descendants. It's always good to get that confirmation. Hope all is well otherwise. Mike Guenther

Re: Hannah (Chew) Crostwaith & the Newbys.

I can see that I had questions on her and I am still in process of figuring her out. I also am certain that she is not Abraham Crostwait's mother. I will study this one a bit.

Thank you Heather! I'm very interested in growing my Cooper branch farther back and out.

I'm on day #3 of an intense seven day seminar so I hope to look at it all afterwards.

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:
