PREFACE



The design of this work is to give the two counties treated an impartial, faithful
chronicle of their past from the date of earliest settlement down to recent times. Its scope,
as originally planned and laid out, seemed more than ample, yet so very much that was
valuable for record and for preservation was gathered in the rich historic field wherein we
have delved that, notwithstanding arduous labor at condensation, it has far outgrown its
proposed dimensions. The author only regrets that his labors must now cease, as every
passing day is adding 'to the treasures developed by historical research. But here the super-
structure is reared upon which the future historians of these counties may build. We have
striven to gather the scattered threads of the past and to weave them into a complete fabric,
to which the "Art preservative of arts" shall give immortality.

Over one year of patient, painstaking, and conscientious labor has been devoted to the
above design by the author and his numerous staff of assistants, supplemented by the con-
tributions of many of the ablest citizen's of these counties, — equal to nearly ten years of
constant effort of one person. The result is embodied in this volume; but the obstacles and
vexations attendant upon its preparation will hardly be realized by those who peruse its
pages. Lord Macaulay has said that perfection in historical composition was not attainable
by fallible men. If there be no errors of fact or date in the legion of items herein con-
tained, we shall feel that the great English historian was at fault.

AVe have given many items of local history which may by some be thought trivial or
beneath the "dignity of history." But who is competent to judge of what 'may be valuable or
interesting to those who come after us'.' Much valuable information has undoubtedly been lost
to the world by the fastidious views of many historical writers. Instead of polished sentences
or well-turned periods, truth in Us simplicity lias been our aim, — to go, as far as practicable, back-
to the original sources of information, and to verify by corroborative testimony whenever
possible, while correcting the errors of writers who have preceded us.

From colonial and other documents in the State archives, from county and township records,
family manuscripts, printed publications, and innumerable private sources, we have endeavored
to prepare a history which should be accurate, instructive, and an honor to the counties represented.

AW' will not here enumerate (as is customary with many authors) the volumes which have
been consulted in the preparation of this work, for several reasons: the lis! would till Beveral
pages, would be read by very few, and would be a needless repetition, as a large proportion of
them are given through the text in parenthetical references, foot-notes, etc.

\Ye are under special obligation, however, to the Reverends Geo. 9. Moii. DJD., Klein -
ington : Edward Tanjdre ( 'orwin, IU>., of Millstone ; Abram Messier, D.D., Somerville ; P. A.
