Tried to get some info from your site. Much of it is not avail per GeoCities. [this is why I left them -ed.] Found the 1st Pres church records but the census was not there. The births in the 1800 were. Maybe you need a little bit of fine tuning. Good site otherwise.

Very helpful site. Apparently, Samuel B. SODEN, his wife Hannah and children Margaret, Susan L. and Charles J.lived on North St. W in Westfield in 1875, when daughter Eliza was born. Margaret Soden later married a SMITH and was living in Linden, NJ on 26 August 1940. I am descended from Charles J. Soden, and am hoping I can find the whole family in Westfield in the 1880 Census. Thanks for your great site!

Interested in the Westfield Marsh, Tucker, and Ludlum families. Have a lot on the Marsh and Tucker lines, but seriously lacking information on the Ludlum's.

Families that you are researching:: Kernaghan, Shotwell
WOW! What a valuable service you provide for those doing genealogy research for Westfield, NJ! Unfortunately, my ancestors were born in Elizabeth, NJ (Union County). Since you are such an "expert" at genealogy and I'm a "newbie", could you by chance give me any pointers on how to obtain ACCURATE records??? I am not even sure of the birth year of y great-great grandfather - I thought it was 1877, but "1878" is entered on his funeral record! To make matters more complicated, the family went to California in 1885 and the surname "Kernaghan" ended there. The only son (my great-grandfather) robbed his father's bank and ran to Canada to escape the law - and changed his last name. Oh boy! Any pointers you can give would be greatly appreciated by this Cannuck!

I am seeking information on the DAVIS family who settled in the Westfield/Elizabethtown/Essex County (now Union Co.) New Jersey area. Specifically, I am trying to locate the family of John Davis b. 1706 who married Susannah Marsh abt. 1728. Did John DAV S have a brother named Joseph DAVIS who was b.1710 and moved to Connecticut Farms NJ and died there in 1760? Who were John Davis' parents/siblings and where did they live before they came to New Jersey? I hope to make contact with other DAVIS researchers. Sincerely, Carole Davis Levering email@example.com

Families that you are researching:: Cory, Lyon, Ward, Clark, Miller, Marsh
Beautiful Web page. I am descended from a John Cory who married Susannah Lyon 15 April 1790 at the New Providence Pres.Church. Littel's book says that this John was the brother of Noah and Parkhurst Cory...but the latest edition of Corys of America says that John, son of John and Phebe Parkhurst Cory married a Patty Davis. Also, Susannah Lyon's mother was Joanna Clarke. This families are so hard to separate. My John and Susannah Cory went to PA and then down to Dearborn County, IN before 1820.
