I'm a project coordinator for the New Sweden Project and the New Jersey Project. If you need help researching profiles in colonial New Jersey, let me know.

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. 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.

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.

Please contact me within the next week to let me know if you would like to remain an active member of the project. If I don’t hear back from you I will assume you no longer want to be a part of the Categorization Project.

... 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..

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,

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