|Bio and Links|
At first the ferry was just a hollowed-out log canoe in which Henry Baker (my 9th GGF) carried wayfarers across the Delaware River from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to New Jersey. Horses had to swim and tired travelers were put up in the Baker home. Nearly a century later, in December 1776, General George Washington set up headquarters in a mansion near the prosperous tavern that had replaced Baker's house. In The Tavern at the Ferry, Edwin Tunis recreates the people, houses, and artifacts -- indeed, the whole way of life -- of a vital period in our country's history with his lively text and more than 100 meticulous and evocative pencil-and-wash drawings. He depicts the rhythms of daily life in pre-Revolutionary America, from cooking, eating, and drinking to farming and fishing, and describes how such enterprises as flax oil mills and ironworks operated.|
Through Henry Baker (1634-1701) and his family, Tunis tells the story of America's growth in the colonial period and the growing dissatisfaction of its citizens with British rule. More than just set the scene, The Tavern at the Ferry chronicles the dramatic story of the events leading up to Washington's crossing of the Delaware and the ensuing Battle of Trenton, a turning point in the War of Independence. The weeks and days before the crossing were full of intrigue, and Tunis follows the stories of such men as John Honeywell, the patriot double-agent, and Moses Doan, the would-be betrayer, as well as those of the tired but determined troops who turned the tide of war under Washington's leadership. Whether illustrating a dance at a country tavern or soldiers marching across a snow-covered field, The Tavern at the Ferry provides the small, vivid details that bring history to life.

|Dolores J. Rush||Likens/Lykins Family|
I'm trying to figure out a connection between the Lykins family, the Boones and the Allen/ Fletcher/Griffin/White family. I wrote this biography some time ago on Dr. Johnston Lykins,
then discovered his brother, David Lykins, whom the county was named for in the Kansas territory where my 3rd great-grandfather settled when he first moved there. My 3rd great-grandmother's aunt lived near an Isaac Lykins in Montgomery county, KY and I wondered if there was any connection between the two, other than surname? http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~allensofwhiteoak/slate-creek/index.html
There is a map on the last webpage that shows Isaac Lykins land. Does any of this sound familiar?
|J Knaepen||David Sharp Photo Request|
I can't fulfill your request for David Sharp as the tombstone does not exist. Row 7 would be back by the fence and the newer graves. There is a pile of stones in the center of the cemetery, which I have turned over, but no luck. This cemetery is being maintained by nice young people currently living in the old Sharp home. Ten Mile and the Sharp family are beloved to me. Here is my Sharp Cemetery Website. http://knaepen.homestead.com/Sharp-Cem.html
I hope this helps.
|George DeKay||Emma Canaday|
You requested that Emma be linked to E.J. Canaday.
She is already linked to the other one you created. Why do you have two memorials for him. You need to delete the E.J. one.
I transferred the memorial to you. You can copy what you need and then delete it.
|Barbara Sherriff Hahn||Peter Browne|
You indicated that the Peter Browne memorial #162880074 from 2016 is a duplication of one from 2003. I am unable to locate this one. Can you send me the memorial number?
Thank you so much,
I have corrected the middle name to Jones.
Do you know the death year of his first wife?
Sometime about 1881.
