Am trying to sort out the early descendants of Dr. Roger Park. Read through some of the postings here in this forum, but haven't found my family specifically.
Sarah Jewell, the daughter of Penelope Stout and either Thomas or William Jewell (this is in dispute as well.) Married William Park who was born in Hopewell, NJ May, 1711. He married Sarah Jewell either in 1736 or 1738. They had children which included twins Penelope and Elizabeth Park born in 1738. My connection to the Park surname is through Elizabeth Park who married Thomas Roberts in about 1756.
My questions:The proven children of Dr. Roger Park are Ann,John and Roger Park? I originally believed that William Park, my Park ancestor, was a son of Dr. Roger Park. Could William Park be a grandson of Dr. Roger Park instead? Is it possible that he was the son of Dr. Park's son, Roger?
I might add that until about the 3rd decade of the 1800's my various NJ ancestors which includes Stout,Jewell, Park, Roberts, Fortner, and Garrison were all residents in and near Amwell, and Hopewell, NJ. They married into other families of the area. My Garrison descendant married aPhillips from Buck Co, PA across the river from Amwell, NJ. The family moved further west to Illinois in the late 1840's-early 1850's.
Any help would be appreciated to pinpoint where my ancestor, William Park, fits into the earlier Park families.
