I went to the NJ State Archives in Trenton and found a birth record for Abram Eckerson, born 2/12/1888. He was born in Harrington Twp, Bergen County, NJ. Parents were Westervelt Eckerson, 36 yr old carpenter, and Maggie Demott, then 28 yrs. She had 5 kids, 3 of which were still living. If anyone has a connection, please let me know.
