I've created this "treasure chest" page to feature one genealogical gem I've found in the Sussex County Library per month. The purpose is to highlight an older, rare or forgotten resource so other researchers can benefit and share. I will answer simple, concise queries on this particular book as long as it remains active on this page. After that, please write to the library (or visit) for yourself.
This genealogy outlines the descendants of Abraham AXFORD, son of John and Anna who married Sarah BEAVERS. Their marriage license was dated 29 Jul 1762, both described as from Sussex County, NJ. No complete list of Abraham's children exists but the author combined the children named in Abraham's will with that of Uncle Samuel Axford's (Abraham's brother). The genealogy names intermarriages with the DUNHAM, Van SYCKLE, MORGAN, COOPER, SWAYZE, HUNT, MACKEY, OSMUN, HOAGLAND, PRALL, WYCKOFF, and DeCOW among others. A few branches journeyed to Ontario, Canada and later moved into Michigan. I have 11 pages of this book copied at home so I can provided unlimited lookups in this portion. The rest of the book is restricted to the top floor of the Dennis Library so you'll need to contact them with other questions.
