Bio and Links
Bio Photo The day I was born on June 18, 1941, I said to my Mother and Father, "Who are you and who I'm I", thus started my search of my family tree. I have been doing that ever since.
Searching New Jersey for Applegates I crossed paths with the Revolutionary War and started my collection of everything of George Washington.
I'm now in the middle of the Civil War with no end in sight.
I was lucky to know all four of my grandparents and they were all very good at relaying family stories, even if they did embellish the tales a little.
My Mother and Father dated for seven years during the depression before getting married in 1934.
She lived in Tuckerton, NJ on the Crik and Father lived in Haddonfield, NJ about one hour apart. They wrote two love letters to each other, every week for the entire seven years and my Mother saved everyone of them. What a great collection.
After my Mother was married and living in Haddonfield, she wrote letters to and from her Mother in Tuckerton, and she save everyone of them also.
All my many Aunts and Uncles are gone now, but I try to keep the family of cousins together by hosting a Applegate Family Reunion every September.
After my career as a building contractor in Haddonfield, I find myself retired and living in
(you guessed it) Tuckerton.
So, the search goes on for the few missing links.

Swaims in Wrighstown
Hello Tom,
I fixed the spelling in Rynear's memorial, I didn't even see that typo. Thanks for pointing it out to me! And I added to their memorials that their graves are unmarked.

Now I just have to get all of the records for Rynear's military service and hopefully find a birth and death date for him.. I went to the link on the page you e-mailed me but I couldn't quite figure out how to get the copies of his service sent to me. I will try to figure it out again though.

Thanks!
-Heather

Weightman - Parkin Family
Hi Tom,
Would love to know where the pictures of the Weightman and Parkins came from that you have posted on Find a Grave. Are you related to them? I have a very good friend who is a grand daughter of George Weightman and Elizabeth Parkins. I would love to get in touch with someone else doing their family line. Thank you so much!

RE: Cardwell - Grace Episc. Wilm., DE
Oh, no marker. It might be helpful to add that info into the bio section. That way no one will go searching for a stone that probably isn't there. Kimberly

Cardwell - Grace Episc. Wilm., DE
Hello - You have two memorials created for this cemetery. I just finished photographing all stones at Grace and there were no Cardwell. Are you sure they are buried there?

Applegate
Hello my name is Justin and I was hoping that you might have come across some information on my family. My 4th Great Grandparents are Abigail Applegate and William Little. From what research I have managed to do Abigail is descended from a long line of NJ Applegates. I believe her parents were Andrew Applegate and Elizabeth Pew. If you could relay any information you may have on them or on any of the other Applegate grandparents going back that I believe I am descended from I would be very appreciative.

Thank You,

Justin R. Pfaff
