I know this is an old message, but I have information on the descendants of Jacob Applegate and Ester Irons.Jacob was my 5th great grandfather.
If you are curious of how I am related-- His son Ebenezer had a son: Joseph B Applegate. Jospeh B had a daughter: Alice Applegate (My gg-grandma) Alice had a daughter: Leota Applegate (My g-grandmother) Leota had a daughter: Leota Wargo(My grandmother) Leota had a daughter: Leota West(My Mom) Leota had a daughter: Leota Plonsky (Me!)
The first Leota was born in Toms River New Jersey (Where all of the relatives before her lived) but she moved to Connecticut when she was 18yrs old... and the rest of the relatives, myself included, grew up in CT.
All of the Toms River relatives were buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery (formally known as Applegate Cemetery) and you can find a list of the people buried there at:
