37. Sarah Price b. 25 Sept 1722 m. William Hollister. She was living 4 Feb
1745/6 when her brother, Zachariah's estate was distributed. One would
assume she was deceased before 27 Oct 1748 when her half sister Sarah was
born, but this does not seem to be the case. The Diary of Joshua Hempstead,
1901, p. 598, states under date of 21 Nov 1752, regarding deaths of seamen
at New London from smallpox. "One man more buryed to day. Died out of a
vessel. Hollister ye Mate of Glassenbury, aged above 30 years. Jno Colefax
is his Uncle." Administration on the estate of William Hollister, a sea
captain, of Glastonbury, granted 26 Dec 1752 to Sarah Hollister of
Glastonbury with Samuel Price of Hartford as bondsman. Inventory dated
17/18 Jan 1753. On 28 Mar 1755 Samuel Price and Sarah Hollister of
Glastonbury and Ebenezer Price of Wethersfield conveyed part of two tracts
which "descends to us from our mother Dorothy Price, dec'd." Sarah
Hollister acknowledged 10 Mar 1761 and Sarah Hollister, Jr., witnessed. On

Hollister, dec'd, of Glastonbury" about three acres. On 19 May 1772 George
Hollister of Blandford, Massachusetts; Giles Hollister, Sarah Hollister,
Sarah Hollister 2d, and Ezra and Hannah Covel, all of Glastonbury, sold to
John Gains of Glastonbury, 2 acres and 136 rods with the house where "said
Sarah and children" now dwell.

84. Hannah Hollister m. 12 Jan 1767 Ezra Covell of Glastonbury.
85. perhaps William Hollister who d. 15 Sept 1762 during French and Indian

gave bond on the estate of William Hollister of Glastonbury.

Benjamin Price who had daughters Eunice bpt 8 Apr 1781 and Jemima 20 Apr
1783 at Rocky Hill was perhaps a son of Ebenezer.
39. Robert Price b. 10 Feb 1730/31 removed to Frankford township, Sussex
County, New Jersey with his parents, m. Abigail Coult b. c. 1738 daughter
of Isaac Coult and Hannah Hill. Abigail d. 3 Dec 1773 35y (ts) buried
Frankford Plains Cemetery, Frankford township. Robert m. after her death
and referenced a wife in his Will, but unnamed. He appeared in the 1773
Newton tax rateables as Robard Prise with 140 acres, 22 horses and cattle.
He appeared in the 1774 Newton tax rateables with 140 acres, 22 horned
cattle. He was a member of the Sussex County Committee of Safety, Aug 1775.
Robert d. 15 Jan 1782 50y 11m 5d (ts) Frankford Plains Cemetery.
Will dated 29 Aug 1779 Newton. Wife to have 1/3 of moveable estate. Son,
Samuel land I bought of Job Curzad of 80 acres which joins line of Francis
Price. Sons, Robert, John, and Zachariah, remainder of lands when 21.
Daughters, Mary, Abigail, and Lucy, rest of moveable estate. Executors,
brothers Francis and Zachariah and eldest son, Samuel. Witnesses, Dougald
Smith, Christopher Case, Samuel Kennedy Jr. Inventory, 24 Jan 1782 by James
Stott, Christopher Case, James Morrow. Proved 28 Jan 1782 (Liber M:83).
Partition of estate recorded 23 Jan 1797, witnessed by John Gustin, James
Hamilton, and John DeWitt. Five sons were named: Robert Price, John Price,
Francis Price, Samuel Price, and Zachariah Price. Francis was not named in
the Will, either born after the date of the Will to the second wife,
omitted from the Will, or not abstracted from the Will. The original Will
should be consulted.
Samuel was cited as the eldest son in the Will and it is known from his
cemetery marker that he was born in 1756. This would make Abigail about
eighteen years of age at his birth and perhaps Samuel was also the eldest
child. This would indicate most of the other sons were under 21 as the
above Will states and it would be unlikely that Robert would have omitted a
minor child from his Will, so perhaps Francis was a child of his second
93. Samuel Price b. 1756.
94. Mary Price b. perhaps c. 1758/60.
95. Abigail Price b. c. 1762.
96. Robert Price Jr., b. c. 1764 d. 12 Aug 1793 30y (ts) Frankford Plains
Cemetery. Inventory of estate dated 14 Sept 1793 made by Francis Price and
John Gustin. On 17 Sept 1793 administration granted to Samuel Price and
Joseph Northrup. If he m. and had children they are unknown. The Mary Price
who m. 24 Dec 1793 (justice docket of Daniel Predmore Genealogical Magazine
of New Jersey 1931, p. 67) John Bell was perhaps his widow and not his
sister Mary (no. 67 above), since from the order of children in the Will of
Robert Sr., Mary (no. 67) was perhaps b. c. 1758/60 and would have been in
her thirties if she m. in 1793. In a deed (O-255) dated 4 Apr 1798 John
Price of Frankford township conveyed to Samuel Price of Frankford township
the "whole of the lands of Robert Price, Jr., owned at his decease below
the center of the great road through Pepocotting" and bounded by Samuel
Price and Robert Price. Most of the tract assigned to Robert Price, Jr., in
the division of his father's estate (Division A-24) was included in the
parcel sold by John Price to Jacob Cary on 1 June 1815 (M2-362). In that
deed John claims title as a result of conveyances to him from the heirs of
Robert Price, but it would appear, most of those deeds were never recorded.
97. John Price b. 25 May 1766.
98. Lucy Price.
99. Zachariah Price b. 1773.
100. Francis Price.
40. Elizabeth Price b. 18 Mar 1733 is believed to be the Lisabeth Prys
whose marriage appears in the Machackemeck Church Records in 1753, which
would place the arrival of the Price family in Sussex County at this date
or prior. "Jacobus (James) Devoor, widower of Evje Dingenman and Lisabeth
Prys, young woman, born in N. Engellant (New England) and both dwelling at
Palingskill (Paulinskill) were married 5 July 1753."
The Paulinskill River traverses through Frankford township in Sussex County
where the Price family resided.
Jacobus (James) Devoor and Evje (Eva) Dingenman had four children baptised
in the Walpack church records, Abram 12 July 1741, Adam 19 Oct 1743,
Andries 2 Feb 1746, and Hendrick 21 Aug 1748.
42. John Price b. 16 June 1739 m. Esther Smith b. 16 Jan 1746 daughter of
Hezekiah Smith and his wife Mary. Hezekiah Smith was residing in Sussex
County, New Jersey in 1753 when he joined the First Baptist Church of
Wantage and "Hezekiah Smith and wife" were baptised in the Walkill River.
Hezekiah was assessor for Sussex County, 4 Oct 1755; board of freeholders,
1769/73 for Newton and paid tax in 1774 on 75 acres and 22 horses and/or
cattle. Member of Sussex County grand jury. He often practiced medicine. On
24 Mar 1779, Hezekiah Smith of Newton, Sussex County, purchased 233 1/2
acres of land in Piscataway, New Jersey where he removed to and died 6 Oct
1801 88y (ts) First Baptist Church Cemetery, Piscataway.
In 1782 Hezekiah Smith prepared a Will in his own hand, apparently
unrecorded, which was found in 1949 by a descendant, Mrs. Margaret Stelle
Pool, in a hidden compartment of an old chest, believed to have been
Hezekiah's, which she inherited. Along with the Will was found a receipt
(in Hezekiah's handwriting) from Phebe Ogden, dated 9 Nov 1770, with an
acknowledgement 13 Nov by Robert Ogden in payment of Hezekiah's mortgage of
44 78/100 acres recorded in Newton in 1766. One provision of the unrecorded
Will reads "to my daughter Esther Price 1/6 part of my land, mortgages,
investments, and salt meadows while she continues to be the widow of John
John Price was thus deceased before 7 Jan 1782, the date of Hezekiah's
unrecorded Will. Esther d. 9 May 1799. One son named in later Will of
Hezekiah Smith, dated 22 June 1799, proved 7 Nov 1801.
101. Hezekiah Price b. 14 May/6 June 1761.
43. Francis Price b. 13 Sept 1741 m. Esther Dunn b. 19 Dec 1743 Enfield,
Connecticut daughter of William and Esther Dunn who settled in Sussex
County, New Jersey. Esther's family was involved in the Wyoming massacre in
Pennsylvania during the American Revolution and she had brothers who died
in the massacre. Francis acquired 48.87 acres (S6:118) in 1770 from the
Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey. He was taxed in Newton,
Sussex County in 1773 with 50 acres and 9 horses and/or cattle. In 1774,
same acreage and 11 cattle. Esther d. 12 July 1774 30y (ts) Frankford
Plains Cemetery. Francis served in the American Revolution in the capacity
of captain. After the war he was a justice of the peace and became a
prominent figure in the county when appointed County judge, 20 Nov 1789 and
26 Nov 1794. In 1790 he acquired 33.93 acres (S8:433) from the Proprietors
of the Eastern Division of New Jersey and in 1795 he acquired 19.87 acres
(S10:403) from the Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey.
Francis m. (2)Anna _________ . They were married before 28 Apr 1778 when
her name appears on a deed. Since Anna named slaves in her Will she is
perhaps the Anna Price who recorded the birth of a child to a slave owned
by her, which New Jersey law required, "Tamir, female child, b. 31 May 1807
to negro woman, slave, owned by Anna Price." Anna signed by mark.

Zachariah's date of birth of 1744 is taken from a family bible record of
his parent's. His older brother Zachariah died 31 May 1744 and it would be
more likely that the second Zachariah was born 22 Sept 1744 and that his
marker is incorrectly inscribed with 1743 as a date of birth. Below are
dates of birth for the children of Zachariah and Mary Price, evidently
taken from a family bible or similar record and printed in Genealogical and
Memorial History of the State of New Jersey. These dates do not agree with
some other records, including the cemetery markers above, but they are here

120. Robert Price b. 7 Oct 1796 d. 1 July 1798.
46. Jerusha Price b. 25 May 1751 m. Isaac DeWitt b. perhaps c. 1741. Isaac
was taxed in Newton township (that portion that is now Frankford), Sussex
County in 1773 with 10 acres, 4 horses/cattle; 1774, 21 acres and 4
horses/cattle. He is perhaps the Isaac DeWitt, Sr., in the 1793 Sussex
County light horse militia, third company. The name of Jerushey DeWitt
appears on the 1797 membership list of the First Baptist Church of Wantage.
Will of Isaac dated 28 July 1811 Frankford township named wife "Gerusha"
to have 1/3 of moveable and real estate and house we now live in. Residue
of estate divided among children, John, Isaac, Ann, Caty, Elizabeth, heirs
of Gerusha, Jemiah, Sarah, Lucy, and Subah. Daughter, Mary, now Janes, $1.
Inventory dated 25 Jan 1813 and Will proved 9 Feb 1813. Jerusha signed by
mark. Perhaps buried in Frankford Plains Cemetery, no marker. At his death,
Isaac left about 175 acres of land, which was all sold by his estate
(L2:108, N2:140, S2:356). Jerusha removed with some of her children to Knox
County, Ohio, perhaps c. 1818.
Jerusha purchased property 29 Apr 1820 (D:595-6) in Knox County, Ohio from
John P. Lindley and his wife, Susannah, being in Section 2, Township 7,
Range 14. Jerusha DeWitt of Chester township deeded (O:60) 32 acres of this
purchase on 13 Dec 1828 to Benjamin Pitman for $1 for "love and affection
which I bear towards my daughter Jemima wife of the said Benjamin Pitman of
Franklin township, in said County of Knox," containing 32 acres and 132
perches known as lot no. 3. On this same date Jerusha deeded (H:138-9) to
"my daughter Susannah Dalrymple" of Marion County for $1 the southeast
corner of her 1820 purchase, containing 32 acres and 137 perches known as
lot 4. Also, on this same date, Jerusha deeded (M:324-5) the northeast
corner of her 1820 purchase to Charles Mann for $1 for "love and affection
which I bear towards my daughter Asuba Mann wife of the said Charles Mann
of Marion County" containing 32 acres and 137 perches known as lot 1.
Jerusha signed by mark on all land transfers. After selling these three
parcels there remained 32 acres and 137 perches in the northwest corner of
her 1820 purchase, which she sold (O:61) 23 Aug 1831 while a resident of
Knox County to Benjamin Pitman for $120.00 and known as lot 2 (present
Wayne township) in Section 2, Township 7, Range 14. Jerusha is not
enumerated with any of her known children (John DeWitt, Azuba Mann,
Elizabeth Hazen, Susannah Dalrymple, Isaac DeWitt, or Catherine Struble)
living in Ohio in 1830. Perhaps living with Jemima Pittman or another
daughter whose residence has not been located in 1830. Jerusha was living
23 Aug 1831 when she deeded the last of her land, but at what date she died
we are uninformed.
