I have Sarah Hughes marrying a man surnamed Norton.I know of two children:Elizabeth Norton and Lydia Norton.
I don't know the parents of the man Norton.
The parents of Sarah:
* John Hughes, died 1820, of Allentown, NJ.
* Mary Perrine, died before Feb 1849 in Allentown, NJ.
I am trying to find out the parents of John Hughes and Mary Perrine.

Allentown, N.J. its Rise and Progress (Part 49)
Continuing Charles R. Hutchinson's 1914recollection of houses, and their former occupants, along N. Main St., circa1830?
"On thenortherly side, the house [12 Waker] where Horatio Gulick now lives was ownedand occupied by Joseph Waker, senior, who carried on the business of a butcherfor many years. The house near the little brook at the borough line [24 Waker],which James H. Graham lately sold to William
Applegate, and which was onceoccupied by Henry Hughes, son of John, was occupied in 1830 by Charles Britton,shoemaker. Afterwards, John Eagan, who was George Middleton's [tannery] foreman,lived there many years, and perhaps as late as 1860.
"The house where Henry Rocknow lives, at the head of the alley [Maiden Lane], had belonged to the estate ofJohn Hughes, who died in 1820; I do not know who lived there in 1830. In therear of this house, on the little brook above mentioned, was a cider press, andbetween it and the present dwelling of George Rock was a small house in whichlived Nelly Dillon, an old negro woman."
