I am searching for the ancestry of my relative John Earl who died in 1804 in Boonton, New Jersey leaving a wife Anna ---- and 3 sons.
John junior was the executor of the estate.
Peter and William (my line) were minors.
John junior married Jane Vreeland.
Peter Married Barbary Witty.
William married Phoebe Onstott.
John, Peter, and William all worked in the iron ore mines in New Jersey.
My William's son, also named William, left Boonton for Clintonville, New York (ore mines), and married Suzanna Roberts (she died in child birth). He later moved to Ludlow, Vermont, where he died.
His son, Henry Clay Earle, was in the Civil War, and moved to Massachusetts after the Civil War.
Does any of the above information tie into any information or relatives that you might have?
I worked researching records in Morris County, NJ for years but could never find the parents of John Earl (he died in 1804, in Morris County).
Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.
