BADGLEY HISTORY from Newark, New Jersey Evening News
July 23 to Nov 11, 1906 by Wheeler Thurston

"George 2) Badgley, son of Anthony (1) and Elizabeth Badgley, was born at Flushing, Long Island about 1693-6. He moved to Elizabethtown, N.J. Essex (now Union) County, about 1718-20, and was there married to Mary Hatfield.

George Badgley was a land owner at Elizabethtown, and lived there till his death, which took place about September, 1759. He is said by a descendant to have been a ship's carpenter, and to have met his death by drowning, notwithstanding, considerable local fame as a swimmer.

He left no will and on September 19, 1759, letters of administration on his estate were granted to his son George.

His widow lived to an advanced age and died in August 1794. She was buried in the churchyard of the Presbyterian Church at Elizabethtown, August 9, 1794 but no stone marks her grave.

1. George (3) born about 1726, married twice and died April 25, 1794 (see family 7);
