Deborah PATTERSON & Joseph HAVILAND, Monmouth, NJ 1762
New Jersey's Monmouth County Illegitimate Children
Mother: Deborah Patterson
Father: Joseph Haviland
Male child born 3/1/1762
Complaint filed 2/22/1785
Can anyonehelp me identify the name of the Haviland son born to Deborah Patterson?By any chance, was it Stephen B. Haviland?:
MONMOUTH COUNTY GRAVESTONES *
Bethesda Methodist Church Cemetery, at Adelphia
(Formerly Blue Ball), Howell Township
Copied August 25, 1946
Haviland, Stephen B., son of Jonathan (?) and Deborah (?) Haviland, b. May 16, 177(1?), d. April 25, 182(2?); wife, Zilpha, b. --- 177-, d. June 5, 1836(?)
The stone was obviously hard to read even in 1946, because there are question marks placed throughout the transcription.That leaves room to wonder if the dates might be wrong.Maybe his parents were Joseph and Deborah (there were no Jonathan Havilands in the area.) May could have been March, maybe the year of birth was 1762 instead of 177?.
Any help wouldbe appreciated.
