Re: Nancy Winans and John Tharp, Sussex, NJ...
I saw your posting about Nancy Winans and John Tharp.I just happened to be picking apart that same thing.I think you may have seen the post by: wbh (ID ****1115)#451 on Genealogy.com.I had worked on the Nancy Winans listed before and gave up.Then I decided as long as Nancy Winans' birth didn't show up in Orange County, NY, I would check to see where the Winans originated and it seems to be around Essex County, NJ.
I checked a number of places in Sussex County and found a book "Hardyston Memorial" by Alan Austin Haines.On page 148 there was mention of an individual who stayed at Winans house in Vernon.Then I checked the entry #451, and realized that Winans family was also from Vernon TWP.Vernon TWP was established in 1793 from Hardyston TWP.I get the feeling that Nancy Winans was from Sussex County.
Without dates on the statement about Moses and John Tharp - "His oldest brother was Moses.Moses had 2 sons - James and Moses".The Moses that married Elizabeth McDevitt Aug. 6, 1811 by George Gustin Esq. had 2 sons - James and Moses and 2 daughters.If that is the correct Moses at least that is a date to work from.
I will keep hunting.
I enjoyed your recent email - I have a Great Granddaughter who turns everything to art.
