I am trying to find information on Sarah and Jacob Applegate.They lived in or around Manchester, NJ.I have conflicting information on their children's names.My great grandmother Ruth was one of Sarah and Jacob Applegate's granddaughters.She said Sarah and Jacob's children were Margaret, Pauline, Ella, Cyril, and Jennie Applegate.
A distant cousin whose mother was also a granddaughter of Sarah and Jacob Applegate said that Sarah and Jacob's children were Martha, Mary, Emma, Ella, Pauline, and Jennie Applegate.
I have learned from census records that Jennie's real name was Jane or Sarah Jane.I can't find an exact match with the children's names, so I am unable to confirm which Jacob and Sarah Applegate are my great great grandparents.This is what I have found on census records:
1870 Census (Manchester, NJ) Jacob D. Applegate, Age 47 Sarah Applegate, Age 52 Martha, Age 20 Sarah J., Age 17 Paulina, Age 15 Margaret, Age 12 Josiah, Age 9 Charlotte, Age 6 Luella, Age 4
1880 Census (Manchester, NJ) Jacob B. Applegate, Age 59 Sarah, Age 60 Josiah, Age 18 Ella, Age 14
I am looking for any information that will help me determine whether this Jacob and Sarah Applegate are my great great great grandparents.
