As time goes on I have become increasingly more interested in my family genealogy. Most of my ancestors came to the U.S. from England, the Netherlands and Germany. They all settled in Trenton and Bergen County, NJ; as well as, Sussex County, Delaware, Rockland, Suffolk & King's County, NY and Fairfield County, CT. The prominent names associated with them are: Lockwood, Turse/Toers/Tuers, Bowers, Granger, Stanier, Federlichner, Vallerie,Grindrod, Matthew, Zabriskie, Straut, Corne, Rae, Rudlun, Conklin, Clark, Andrew, Lauth, Benjamin, Kemp, Howell, Terry, Gardiner and Hallock.
I am also interested in my wife's genealogy. Her ancestors are primarily from Germany and England. They initially settled in Broome County, NY, Eastern, PA & Southern, NJ. The prominent names are: Schiffhauer, Woodruff, Stokes, Selby, Barnes, Trimble, Braddock, Bradway, Fogg, Hall, Merrit, Pitt, Wood, Wunder, Faust, Hancock, Seifert, Somers, Townsend & Ware. They concentrated in Salem, Cumberland & Camden counties New Jersey, Binghamton NY and Bethlehem PA.
