I don't know if John Appleby was a widow when he married Phoebe Leek.They were marr. Aug. 1803.
I am having a hard time chasing him down.
Census of 1830 shows they were living in Gloucester Co.N.J.
Census in 1840 shows Phoebe,with children, but no John.
I did find in the tax records,1785,Galloway Twph.a John Smith Appleby owning 50 acres of improved land.
Don't know if this is my John Appleby.
The Leeks were an important family back then and it seems odd that I cannot locate him.
