Research Interests

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

Dad's family is from southern New Jersey, including


My mother is an English immigrant. My dad's a descendant of over a hundred 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's question, about Benjamin Bryant (Bryant-6495):

Was he a grandson perhaps of Thomas Bryant? Thomas had a son Benjamin. Haven't traced the line down, but there are many Quaker Briants and Bryants in western New Jersey.

Hi Heather, No, this Benjamin was not a grandson of Thomas Briant from the southern Jersey areas. His grandfather was John Briant of Westfield.

Benjamin was the fifth child, second son, of Andrew Briant and Rachel Meeker Briant of Randolph, Morris County, New Jersey.

I have not had a chance to get back on Wiki and continue to edit my northern New Jersey relatives lately, but will try soon.

In the meantime, pls see my posted genealogy of my Bryant lineage, here: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=jlbryantnj/

Thanks, Jef

That's fine, but wikis go from general to specific. It doesn't matter if there are "millions" or not, that's their category.

Hi Heather,

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Susie :-)

Thanks for the merge request. As far as Joseph goes, I have no doubt it is a match. I do have a difference with his mother; according to my research and looking at the birth date, the Lenni-Lenape Indian Mary was not his mother, she was his grandmother, married to Bartholomew. What are your thoughts?
