PREFACE,






A "preface" is not generally, as the word seems to imply, the beginning of a book, except
as to its location, inasmuch as it embraces the last words that come from the author's pen and is
the last — with the title-page and contents — to In- printed. This enables the writer t" have a final
word with his readers, even alter the 1 k proper is completed. In this instance the opportu-
nity will be used in returning our grateful acknowledgments to the many citizens of the two
counties who have assisted in the preparation of thi> volume.

We are particularly indebted to Hon. Thomas Lawrence, I). S. Anderson, Ksq., Hon. Sam-
uel II. Hunt, Thomas G. Bunnell, David Thompson, Esq., John T. Stewart, Richard F. Good-
man, Thomas Kays, Esq., Jonathan Havens, M.D., George H. Nelden, Theodore Morford,
Thomas Ryerson, M.D., William M. Smith, Maj. William K. Mattison, Rev. A. A. Haines, of
Sussex County; and to Hon. James M. Robeson, Hon. William II. Morrow, Hon. Samuel
Sherrerd, Jt'lii<T S. Shipman, Esq., Judge J. T. Kern, Hon. John I. Blair, Charles K. Vail,
Charles Scranton, J. V. Creveling, John Simerson, Josiah Ketcham, Rev. E. C. Cline, B. F.
Howey, Oscar Jeflfery, Judge P. H. Ilann, J. E. Fulper, Joseph A. Shrope, Augustus H. Del-
liker, Caleb II. Valentine, Zil>a Osmun, Israel Karris, Drs. Brakeley, Johnson, Griffith, Cook,

and Clark, of Warren County; and Hon. Henry C. Kelsey, Trenton, etc.*

The list of those who have contributed to, and in various ways aided in the preparation of,
this work is so large that we may be pardoned for nol attempting to enumerate each individually.
But to the members of the press generally, and the various representatives of the clerical, legal,
and medical professions, in Sussex and Warren Counties, we are particularly indebted. The <'ld

residents — descendants of the early pioneers — have also nobly come to our aid, placing at oar
disposal much that is rare and ancient in documents and verbal lore, and which must prove of
inestimable value in the future. The efficient and polite oounty officials have rendered valuable
assistance, especially in the documentary portions of the work and in the compilation of the
county and township civil lists. So generally and so generously h:us encouragement been given
to our labors that we can charitably overlook the very few exceptions.

Conscientious labor has been bestowed upon this history, with a view to make it as thorough
and accurate as possible. These endeavors have been prosecuted often in the face of obstacles, —

U inj acknowledgments ar.' specially made in the various department* of this volume.

loss of records, imperfect recollections, and conflicting accounts, — and we trust that a charitable
public will keep this in view in passing judgment upon this volume, the result of these efforts.
Our work has been performed as if it was not for the day only, but for all coming time; and
it is safe to assume that these gathered annals will grow in value with each passing year.

To the author's zealous and able stafl 7 of writers much credit is also clue, particularly to
Prof. W. W. Clayton, who with skill and care has told the tale of the birth, infancy, and de-
velopment of this country, as found in the general history chapters of Sussex and Warren Coun-
ties; also to Messrs. W. H. Shaw, E. O. Wagner, D. Schwartz, etc., who have labored in the
special department of township and borough histories.

The publishers have embodied in this handsome volume the historical manuscripts which
the author and his numerous assistants have gathered and edited, and with our best wishes they
now go back, ou the printed page, to the citizens of Sussex and Warren.
