    1. WEST NEW JERSEY
    Many of the stories in the West New Jersey section are strictly chronological, beginning with 1677. The
    whole section can be taken as one long story, and it is far from finished. Here is a list of the WNJ
    stories, starting from the beginning and ending with 1691, and also a separate category for Dr. Daniel
    Coxe, one-time governor of West New Jersey.

    2. HUNTERDON COUNTY
    I have not written enough about Hunterdon County—it is a large subject. 2014 is the 300th
    anniversary year for the county, a good time to reconsider its origins. I would also like to study its
    politics, some of its early families, and outstanding individuals. Here are some of the stories published
    so far:
    The Indians of Hunterdon County
    Interpreting Lenape (2/13/2011)
    The Lenape of Central New Jersey (9/23/2012)
    By Their Names You Shall Know Them (2/17/2013)
    Much more to write on this subject.
    Hunterdon’s First Landowners
    The people I write about in this section can be found on Hammond’s wonderful maps of the first
    landowners of Hunterdon County. I will never be able to write about all of them, but will start with
    some of the earliest landowners in the southern part of the county.
    Edward Kemp (9/2/2013)
    Richard Bull, Surveyor (12/8/13)
    Samuel Green (and Family)

    “Michigan Fever” (11/7/2016)`
    The Lamberts of Amwell Township
    Two Lambert Farms, part one (9/25/2016)
    Sen. John Lambert’s Farm (10/6/2016)

    Hunterdon in the Revolution
    All Roads Lead To Pittstown (2/26/2016)

    White Hall Recruiting Station, 1775-1781 (Oct 24, 1901) published 3/20/11
    Home of Capt. David Jones (Aug 31, 1905) published 2/27/12
    Thomas Jones v David Johnes (2/27/2012) Regarding the collection and concealment of the boats used
    for Washington’s Crossing. This matter will probably never be resolved, and I expect to return to it.
    Hunterdon People
    John Reading’s Journal (10/17/2010). Much more needs to be written about one of the earliest and
    most important residents of Hunterdon County, the father of the John Reading who wrote a journal in
    the mid-18th century.
    Nathaniel Saxton Esq. (1/8/2012) and Saxton’s Politics (2/11/2012). Saxton had great influence in
    Delaware Township, but he was really a Hunterdon county man.
    Samuel Green Opdycke, Esq., another interesting, and somewhat tragic, Flemington lawyer. The
    second article describes his untimely end.
    Two other interesting Hunterdon people: Daniel Rittenhouse of Locktown and John Rake Jr. of Sand
    Brook.

    Letters of Sen. John Lambert
    Senator John Lambert was a resident of Delaware Twp. back when it was part of Amwell Township, but
    should really be considered a person with county-wide (and even national) influence.

    Days of Lincoln that borrowed heavily from an article by E. T. Bush, “The Old Frog Tavern,” in 1929.




    3. DELAWARE TOWNSHIP
    Bridge-LogoIn 2013, my home town celebrated its 175th birthday. In honor of the event, I have
    written a series on its creation, which was also the creation of Raritan Township, both carved out of old
    Amwell Township. Other series specific to Delaware Twp. include Raven Rock, the Green Sergeant
    Covered Bridge, the village of Headquarters, and villages in general. This is not an exhaustive list; for
    all articles pertaining to Delaware Township, please click on the the link to Delaware Township on the
