Thank you for your information on Thomas Atchley, called James in the Maud Horn book.I am very glad to have it as the "Atchley Family History" has been the only knowledge I have on the first two generations.(Your Thomas's grandson Thomas b. 1755 was my 4G-grandfather.)If you have any other information on the early family that you would be willing to share I would be most grateful.I can be reached at email@example.com.
I note the Horn book lists a brother of Joshua, Benjamin, Nathaniel, etc., whom you do not: a Thomas Atchley who was a witness to a 1747 NJ Will.Do you suppose this could have been Joshua's father, rather than a brother?
