As suggested by the photo above, most 18th & 19th century Hunterdon families were farm families. On this blog, some families get more attention than others. As of the spring of 2018, I began publishing family trees for the first five or six generations. In the list below, the family names whose trees have been published are in caps and links to the family tree pages added.


Gradually more and more family trees will be published, and more family names will be added to the list.

One of the purposes of these family trees is to help readers understand the relationships between family members that I write about. It can get confusing at times. Another purpose is to provide a place for researchers of Hunterdon families to get in touch. If you are such a person, add your contact information in the comments sections to whatever family you are interested in. Perhaps you will find other family members there.

If you wish to see articles in which these families are featured, go to the Families section in the right-hand column. Clicking on the drop-down menu will reveal corresponding links and the number of articles in which each family is featured. If you search for the family name in the upper left-hand search space, you will get all of the articles in which that name is mentioned. Families with published trees are shown in caps and contain links to those trees.

The oak tree depicted here is by one of my favorite artists, Thomas Bewick. It will show up with every family tree.
