I am trying desparately to find the name and date of the marriage between Nehemiah Morss, Sr. of Galloway Twp, Gloucester Co, NJ to Jane [surname unknown] sometime between 1770 and 1780.At this time, we are assuming that Jane is the mother of Nehemiah's children, but cannot prove this.
Nehemiah Morss Sr. is one of the 3 children of Robert Morss and Jemima Wood, who married in Burlington Co NJ in 1741. His siblings Rebecca Morss m William Burnett and Jonas Morss m Abigail Smith.
In all land deeds from 1792-1824, his wife's name is Jane and in his will dated 1834, he bequeaths property to his "beloved wife, Jane".
He is not to be confused with one of his sons, Nehemiah Morss Jr. who married Mary "Polly" Risley in 1805 in same area.
I am willing to share information regarding the family.
Appreciate any and all help.
