Both Samuel Willet Comstock and "Dave Graves" who posts to this forum speak of a Robert Esmay who lived in Amwell, Hunterdon, NJ ca 1747.
Mr. Comstock is long since dead, and Mr.Graves cannot tell me where this idea came from.I have searched, with some very able help, for a Robert Esmay in New Jersey in that time frame, but have not yet found one. I found onlya "Robert Imlay" from an entirely different family.
Has anyone who researches the ESMAY surname, actually FOUND some record of "Robert Esmay of Amwell, Hunterdon, NJ"?
If so, I'd very much like to know what record is responsible for generating the accounts of this man's existence.
