Does anyone know any information on Aaron Meeker from Sussex County. He was born in 1810 and married to Hannah Maseker in 1842. I am trying to find who his father was.

Some information I have found claims his father to be Joseph Meeker born in 1777. Just trying to find some confirmation. Thanks for any help!

Hi, Rosina, I don't know if you have this information already, but Sussex County was created from Morris County in 1753, and Morris and Sussex had originally all been part of Hunterdon County. Hunterdon had split from Burlington in 1714. So perhaps some of these counties might have information on your ancestors.

Hello everybody. New here. I've done a lot of research on ancestors in the Minisink Valley (Sussex) in the18th and early 19th centuries, and I've got a pretty stubborn brick wall in the person of my x4 great grandmother Eleanor Decker (born 1756 - died 16 Mar 1791  in Walpack, Sussex, New Jersey. She married Cornelius Ennis  22 Sep 1781 and had three children. I haven't been able to find any trace of her life before her marriage and nothing about her parents or family. If any one has suggestions on where I might look, I'd be thankful. And thrilled.  I have a lot of info about the Ennis, Decker and Westfall lines in northern New Jersey and southern New York -- right back to New Amsterdam -- if anybody is interested, please yell.

do you have any idea how I can get when they died and where they are buried?Most of my Friesian ancestors are buried at Fairlawn Cemetery,it is possible they are also they were not wealthy and may not have had headstones,I have tried to call the cemetery but my calls on genealogy are never returned,I am also trying to see if Lewis and Jessie VanCampen are buried there also.I really would like to find out because if they don't have headstones because they could not afford them I want to get then headstones!The entire Meyer and Waardenburg family are there bit they had money so all have headstones and my Grandpa VanCampen hd a headstone because the company paid for it when he died in the explosion in 1967.

  1. Can you believe I found my entire Meyer family at Find a grave in Fairlawn Cemetery!  I need help with another side of my family if anyone has an suggestions.  I can't find anything more than a 1920 and 30 US censes for my Grandpa and Grandma Cook.I cant find her Maiden name or when they died,nothing.All I have is that Adrian Cook was born in Friesland,Holland appox 1867 came to the us around 1887,Jennie was alot younger born around 1881. I think she was born in north Jersey.They had 3 children Rena,William and Peter. I know they lived in Hawthorne. Can anyone point me in the right direction where else to search? thanks
