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. :)
|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.

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/
