Eight years later and still no connection to the larger Apgar family tree!
Here are the clues in case anyone can help me solve this puzzle.
1. Marriage announcement:
Hunterdon Gazette, 13 Aug 1834
On the 2nd instant by the Rev. H.W. Hunt, Mr. Lewis Heath to Miss Mary Ann Apgar, both of Bethlehem.
2. Mary Ann's death certificate
Father: Henry Apgar
3. Daughter Matilda is buried in Norton Churchyard. Elizabeth Apgar Humphrey and family are also buried there and lived in the area. Could there be some connection?
4. There seems to be no obvious connection to Bethlehem for either Mary Ann or Lewis, but they lived there (and owned property) from 1834 until the late 1850s. Were there any other Apgar families living in the Norton area?
I'm open to any ideas or suggestions! Here is an update on Mary Ann Apgar and her children. Both Sylvester and William fought in the Civil War. Sylvester died in the Old Soldiers Home in Kearny, N.J. I am descended through George.
