Like all the family trees on this website, this tree is focused on residents of Hunterdon County. For those who moved away, I have added “not HC” to their death dates. I am including Hopewell Twp. as part of Hunterdon County, because it was a part of Hunterdon until Mercer County was created. If you would like to add family members to this tree, feel free to do so in the comments section.
