|Bio and Links|
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.

|Jacqueline Wells Lubinski||RE: John A. Applegate|
Hi Thomas, Glad to be of help. My father was fostered out for a year to Walter and Gertrude Taylor Applegate in Merchantville in 1918. I found their names when I got his papers from the foster home, and ironically I have loads of DNA connections thru Ancestry to numerous Applegate families. I am investigating my 2nd ggrandmother Elizabeth (unknown last name) married to William Wells. This Wells line is from Abraham Wells in Burlington County and has connections up the wazoo to Applegate, Lippincott, Garwood, Gaskill, Venable, Borradaill, Slim, Shinn, you name it in Burlington County and I have a DNA connection to it. Borradaill and Venable are definite possibilities for Elizabeth and/or her ancestors as I have 5 DNA connections to these names with absolutely no other connection to any that I can see in Burlington County. These are Quakers and the line goes back to New England and comes back to Burlington County thru a back door.

Looking further I found a death certificate for a John A. Applegate and a Find-a-Grave listing for him #148064687 in Oakland Cemetery, Philadelphia. Could this be the correct John A. Applegate--son of Henry and Sarah?

I have a question about the info you have posted for John A. Applegate, Findagrave #42366874.
You have him killed by Indians in January 1873 according to a July 1980 National Geographic article. I looked up the article and it stated on page 64 "John Applegate, Ralph Lozier, killed by Indians, 1860".
In looking up this event for further information
it stated that the attack was May of 1860 which would make John A. only 6 years old at the time. It appears that the John Applegate killed by Indians in 1860 was not John A. born in 1854. I don't know who this John Applegate would be, but he is listed in the article as a worker so he would have to be at least 14 if he was a Pony Express rider, or older if he was a station hand.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Clearly my mind if not functioning very well between Louella E. and Louella V. I'm going to transfer Louella V.'s memorial to you.

You might like to add John G. Bowen (Find A Grave Memorial# 11082272) to your 10th NJ Volunteer Infantry virtual cemetery.
All the best.

Mr. Applegate, I just saw the beautiful pic you have on the find a grave entry for Catherine Miller Applegate, memorial number 41332583. I assume the pic is actually of Catherine Miller Applegate, even though the memorial doesn't actually say so. I am wondering if you have any idea when the pic was actually taken? Catherine looks so young. Thanks for a speedy reply. :-)
