I am looking into getting a copy of this publication.If you have already looked into this source please let me know.
I wish I was closer to Jersey so I could do some research up there.Looks like I'm going to have to plan a vacation!!
I purchased a copy of "The Leek Family of Southern Jersey" a couple months ago, Stanley Leek and Ann Hampton are my great grandparents.Their son, George, is my grandfather.My dad's Aunt Phyllis had a farm in Pennsylvania that I visited once as a child.She died recently.I'll have to call my grandmother, who was close with her, for the exact date.
I am connected to Egg Harbor Boats, just haven't pieced together exactly how.As you said, the details in research never end and it is very time consuming.I think I've made a lot of progress in a short time but there is much more to learn!!
