First Generation:

(1) Tunis Hontis Case (1691 – 1772) & Eva Catharine Dubraucke (1695 – after 1774)

This couple came to Hunterdon County from the Rheinland-Pfalz area of Germany, probably fairly late in life. Tunis was not listed with Amwell Township freeholders in 1741, but in 1755 he was naturalized along with son Peter. The Case family was extensive in Hunterdon County, especially in Amwell (later Raritan) Township, and this is only one branch of the Case/Kaes/Kase tree.

As is my practice, I have listed the children of daughters, but not their granddaughters. I have highlighted children of the second generation who have known children of their own, and I have put surnames in caps for families that have trees published on this website. (Go to the Families page where you can get the links to these other trees.) There are unresolved questions with this tree, so additional information is welcome, as well as corrections.
