Hello, I'm new to the list and could really use some help on some of my New
Jersey Quakers in GENERATION FOUR below. Also, I might add that the surname of
Anne ABEL, spouse of Samuel NICHOLSON, [the family who arrived in 1675 with
John FENWICK], came from John NICHOLSON, b: 1757 ~ to his daughter and
grand-daughter, to my grandmother, b: 1869 ~ d: 1969. I have not read it in any
public books or records, other than our family records. And, I do have more
information that I would gladly share... I just could really use some help on the
children of George NICHOLSON and Elizabeth STOCKTON who remained in New Jersey.

Thank you and God's Blessings,
Anne
