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, while my dad's a descendant of over a hundred colonial immigrants. I'm working on sourcing that first generation as completely as possible.

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 her surname is on their son's death certificate.

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.

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?

Hi, I just merged 2 records for Ericus Smidt. His wife Brita shows 2 different fathers. FS has Peter Andersson, no wife on that record but Katarina on another WT profile. James, (brother of Peter, supposedly) and wife Brita Lyman are also shown as Brita's parents. Do you have sources to sort this out?

After New Sweden, Maine, was settled in 1870, another town not far away was founded and they named it Stockholm. That is where my mother was born. I wonder if there are any other 'New Swedens' out there.

Thanks for responding. My grandfather was born in Sweden and his family settled in New Sweden, a town in northern Maine. My grandmother's family had helped found the town. The town was founded in 1870. See link. http://www.maineswedishcolony.info/index.html.
