Greetings. I am a historian writing a book on the early history of the Cohansey River region in what became Cumberland County, New Jersey. As part of my research, I am trying to identify the places from where these early settlers migrated. I hope to develop a database of the earliest settlers to the region so I can draw some conclusions about the makeup of this late 17th and early 18th society.
I am trying to locate a Thomas Alderman "of Cohansey," New Jersey. His wife at the time of his death was Mary. His children were Thomas, Daniel, Mary, and William. He died in 1715. Does anyone have his place of birth (I think it was Connecticut) or the place of birth of his father?
