Re: Major John Polhemus born 1738 (?) in NJ(?)
I now that this is also a bit late in posting but I just recently was given the info I have about the Polhemus families.
My late mother was a decendent of John H. Polhemus who I think is the grandson or great-grandson of Major John Polhemus.
I have some info about John H. Polhemus which was in a book called "Biographical History of New Jersey." The article is a bit confusing but it has dates and whereabouts of the families. I also have a family record of his family, but it is hard to read but it confirms the article I just mentioned.
