I am searching for the Parents of an Elisha PHINNEY who was born c1754 where I don't know but it might have been MA. He married in 1775 I presume New Jersey although this doesn't say, to Hannah HORTON who was born in 1757 a daughter of the Rev. Azariah HORTON, his brother was Rev. Simon HORTON.
Elisha PHINNEY died in 1782 Morristown, New Jersey when a smallpox outbreak took his life. Hannah removed to Elizabethtown, NJ a couple of years later and remarried to a Lewis WOODRUFF. He died in 1806 and Hannah died in 1844. There is a Memorial to her at the Old First Church (I think its Presbyterian)in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. She died July 24, 1844 at age 87 years old.
This little memorial to Hannah (Horton) PHINNEY is from an old History of New Jersey book. It says that after Hannah was widowed for the 2nd time, she took back her married name of PHINNEY. So her memorial reads In Memory of Hannah PHINNEY...
If anyone knows the Parents of her 1st husband I would sure appreciate the info. Thank you very much.
