Those will not look forward to their posterity who never look backwards to their ancestors...Burke

Truly, the figure of an ancestor is a wonderful thing...Plato

Those who do not look upon themselves as a link connecting the past with the future do not perform their duty to the world....Webster

Happy he who remembers his progenitors with pride, who relates with pleasure to the listener the story of their greatness, or their deeds, and silently rejoicing, sees himself linked to the end of this godly chain.... Goethe

He only deserves to be remembered by posterity who treasures up and preserves the history of his ancestors...Burke

Our fathers find their graves in our short memories, and sadly tell us how we may be buried in our survivors...The greater part must be content to be as though they had not been buried, to be found in the register of God, not in the records of man...Sir Thomas Browne

Call to remembrance the former days...Heb. X, 32

Let us praise famous men, and our fathers that begot us....Eccl.XLIV, 1

Our ancestors, whether we know who they are or not, roll away at gathering speed into the past, at times taking us with them. From our summit, turning back to look, we can see them fading into the distance, the perspective diminishing head by head, individuals merging into the crowd, and beyond that into the misty ramifications of history...Each of us...is a synthesis of his race...Sir Robert Sitwell

The name LONGSTREET does not loom large in either our colonial or national history. The three members of the family who are included in the Dictionary of American Biography are of the southern branch, viz. (1) The Confederate Lieutenant General James, (2) his uncle Augustus Baldwin who occupies a place in American literature as author and educator, and (3) the General's grandfather William who has a footnote in history as one of the inventors of the steamboat. The first two have been the subject of full-length biographies: Eckenrode and Conrad's JAMES LONGSTREET: LEE'S WAR HORSE, Sanger and Hayes' JAMES LONGSTREET: The Soldier and the Politician, and Wade's AUGUSTUS BALDWIN LONGSTREET.

Nor is the name LONGSTREET common in the country. Published family histories often include several thousand descendants of an early colonial ancestor. But perhaps not more than 2,500 or 3,000 Longstreets have been born in the United States in the last 300 years. The number of children per family in the first generation averaged 6.5, which is below the colonial average. In the mid-period, the average was 5.5. in the later generations the average has been only 3.3. The ratio of boys to girls has been about normal, tho there has been a small excess of girls. Infant mortality, as for as can be determined, was not in excess of that of the times. The vital statistics indicate simply that the Longstreets just have not multiplied as rapidly as the average American family has. A parent-child ratio of 2:3.3 is hardly sufficient to maintain the family, in the light of non-marriages, childless marriages and infant mortality. There are some male Longstreets of the late 18th century who are represented today by only one or two male descendants. Whatever be the reason, the fact is that the immigrant DIRCK STOFFELS LANGESTRAET who settled in Long Island, in 1657, probably coming from North Brabant in Holland, has not been blessed with a numerous progeny, if the available records tell half of the story.

Not all of the Longstreets now living in America, or who have lived here, are descendants of Dirck Stoffelse. In the Appendix will be found a brief account of the "other" Longstreets.

In the biographical sketch of Cornelius Tyler Longstreet (1814-1881) of Syracuse, N.Y., in the National Encyclopedia of American Biography, V, p.69, we may read:

The Longstreets were of Dutch descent, the first of the name in America being three brothers who came over in the 17th century and settled in New Jersey; one of them subsequently removing to Pennsylvania and one to Georgia.

The authority for the above statement is now unknown, but as we shall see, it is not wholly accurate.

According to the 1790 U.S. Census, there were no Longstreets living anywhere outside of New Jersey at that time. For New Jersey itself we are limited in our search to such "Ratables" (tax lists) as may have been preserved, because the N.J. census for 1790 was destroyed by fire. The Trenton records show that in 1790 there were at least 18 Longstreet freeholders in Monmouth and Middlesex Counties, with five or six more in neighboring Sussex and Somerset Counties. These men, with few exceptions, can be traced to two sons of the immigrant ancestor who moved from Long Island to Monmouth County, N.J. in the year 1698 or close thereto.

A preview of the data to be presented in this MS shows that the two sons of Dirck Stoffelse viz. Stoffel and Aaron, settled not far apart in Monmouth County, N.J. upon leaving Long Island. Stoffel settled in Shrewsbury Tp and Aaron (Adrian) in Freehold Tp. This Shrewsbury-Freehold area was sometimes called the "Neversink" or the "Navesink". Sons of the descendants of these two brothers later moved out into what in early 18th century became South Brunswick Tp, in Middlesex County, and into Upper Freehold Tp. in Monmouth County. It is possible to distinguish four "lines" or branches of the family in the 18th century, based on local Jersey geography: (1) the Shrewsbury Longstreets (chiefly with a settlement on the Manasquan River, often referred to as 'Squan); (2) the Middlesex County Longstreets, living chiefly in Rocky Hill, Kingston and Cranbury and later flowing over into what later became Somerset and Sussex Counties; (3) the Upper Freehold Longstreets from who descended the Southerners; and (4) the Holmdel Longstreets of Freehold Township.

As previously stated, there is no record of any Longstreets outside of New Jersey prior to the Revolution (except for the immigrant ancestor on Long Island, and for a few named in the Penna. Archives who are not presently identifiable.) For almost a century, the family seemed content to live in Jersey. But as the 19th century dawned and the nation had established its independence, the "Westward Movement" began and the Longstreets also began to move. The first, apparently, was one of the Upper Freehold group, who went to South Carolina and thence to Georgia shortly after the Revolution. His is the only branch of the family for which there is a published genealogy. (Mayes' GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY OF LONGSTREET, WITH ITS RELATED FAMILIES...compiled and written for private information, Jackson, Mississippi, 1893, 181 pp. This small work is incomplete and contains some inaccuracies.)

Another Longstreet who moved out of New Jersey about this time was a South Brunswick Township young man named Cornelius, son of a Revolutionary soldier named James; Cornelius appeared in Onondaga County, N.Y. as early as 1802. About this time, two or three Jersey Longstreets went up into western New York. By 1815, some of the family started west to Ohio, and apparently some went up into Canada. By the end of the 19th century there were Longstreets in many parts of the country, North, East, South and West. But the tribe remained relatively small in numbers, and the name is not commonly met to this day, either in person, or in any of the "local histories".

It may be noted that New Jersey records are much less complete than are those of some of the other original colonies; and that when the Westward Movement began, the territories were even less favorable places for any sort of vital statistics. The consequence is that Longstreet family records are hard to come by. There are Longstreets in New Jersey today who are unable to trace their ancestry back to the first settlers in Monmouth County. In fact, as early as 1840, there were inter-marriages without any apparent knowledge of a family relationship.

In the latter part of this MS will be found a report on some branches of the family which the writer has never been able to connect with any 18th century name. Since 1910, the writer has been gathering data on the family, the sources being listed a few pages below.

The title of this MS might well be:

DESCENDANTS OF
DIRCK STOFFELSE LANGSTRAAT

WITHOUT ANY prefatory article "The", because it is certain that this report is incomplete, but such data as have been collected and collated should be preserved and that is the reason for the preparation of the MS.

A NOTE ON THE NAME

The Dutch, prior to the 17th century, had no family names but took their surnames either from the baptismal name of their fathers, or from the town where they were born or with which they were later connected. (as is pointed out by Preserved Smith in his biography of Erasmus, and well illustrated in my copy of the COLLOQUIA pub by the Elsivirs in 1662 where the famous Dutchman's name appears: DES. ERASMI ROTEROD.) Our immigrant ancestor first appears as DIRCK STOFFELS, i.e. Dirck, the son of Stoffel. But by 1696, the surname LANGSTRAAT or Langestraet appears, soon to be anglicized into LONGSTREET. In 1698, our ancestor was listed in a census of Flatlands, L.I., N.Y. as DIRCK LANGSTRAAT.

The first will of record in this name is that of the son of the immigrant ancestor and is signed STOFFEL LANGSTRAAT, tho the clerk or other person who drafted the testament spelled the name in the English style, LONGSTREET. That is the first known appearance of the modern spelling - the year was 1739. The baptismal register of the Dutch Reformed Church at Marlboro, N.J. has the name spelled LANGSTRAAT up to 1760. From the mid-eighteenth century, LONGSTREET became the accepted spelling.

It will become evident that this MS is predominantly about New Jersey Longstreets. About 65% of all the males named herein were born in New Jersey. There are several possible reasons for this predominance, the chief one being that New Jersey is the ancestral home of the family, save for perhaps an initial thirty-odd years on Long Island. So far as is known, all the descendants of the immigrant ancestor in the third generation, i.e. all of his grand children save one, were born in New Jersey; and, with a few possible exceptions, the same is true of the great-grand children. In the fifth generation, they still stayed in New Jersey, save for the one who went South just after the Revolution, and at least one who ventured across the Delaware into northeastern Pennsylvania. It was not until the nineteenth century that Longstreets began to appear in the Mid-west, upper New York, Canada, New England, etc.

A second reason for the predominance of New Jersey in this record is that most of the research has been done in the court houses, libraries and cemeteries of New Jersey. We believe that we have unearthed almost all of the names in that state (prior to 1900). But it is quite unlikely that we have discovered a majority of the names of Longstreets who scattered themselves over the U.S. in the last hundred years. As for the twentieth century, we have made no real effort to collect names. This is the age of vital statistics and if it is ever worthwhile to add the 20th century births, marriages and deaths, some one will make the effort.

The percentages of names of males totaled for the first eight generations, by States, is approximately as follows:

New Jersey...........64%
The Mid-west.........12%
The South.............9%
New York State........7%
New England...........4%
Canada................4%

The Netherlands Embassy, Washington, D.C. informs us that the name "Langstraat" refers "to a section of the Netherlands which is called 'de Langstraat'...a name given to a long stretch of villages in North Brabant province between Vligmen (west of 's-Hertogenbosch) and Raamdonksveer (near Geertrudenberg)...well known because of the many shoe factories which are located in the area. The center of the district is Wallevigh".

OUR IMMIGRANT ANCESTOR

DIRCK STOFFELSE

The first record of the presence in America of our immigrant ancestor was made on June 14, 1663, when a list of "equipment and munitions of war" possessed by the Dutch settlers at Ameersfoort (Brooklyn) revealed that DIRCK STOFFELSEN was responsible for one pound of powder valued at one florin. (M-8, II, 463) In September, 1687, there was a "roll of those who have taken the oath of allegiance in Kings County in the Province of New York ...in the 3rd year of His Maj Reigne", and in this roll, "off fflackland" we find entered:

DIRCK STOFFELSE - 30 Jeare
STOFFEL DIRCKSEN - native

Intrepreted, this means that Dirck had lived in the colony for 30 years (which sets the date of his arrival as 1657) and that his son Stoffel was born in the colony. (M-7, I, 431) The following ante-nuptial agreement found in the Gravesend Town Records, Bk 3 p. 114, gives us more information about Dirck:

To all Christian people to whom this present writing shall come: Know ye thatt I Dirck Stoffelsen living att Ameersfoort in Kings County upon Long Island in ye province of New York weduwaer of Catherine van Lewen deceased, being now remarried with Johanna havens widdow of Johannis holsard deceased my present wife:

JOHN EMANS: Clerke

We do not know the date of death of Dirck's first wife Catherine, but she was with him as witness to a baptism on 11-16-1684 (See Holland Yearbook, 1898). As we see above, Dirck was remarried by Feb. 18, 1690/1. In 1698, there was a census of Flatland, Long Island, in which was listed the then family of Dirck Langstraat, consisting of "Men 1 Wo 1 Chil 3" (M-7, III, 88). On 4-25-1696, Dirch is recorded with his second wife Johanna Havens at the Reformed Dutch Church in Brooklyn, witnessing the baptism of grandsons Jan and Dirck (M-11 I,79) The last known record of this family in Long Island is the following: (P-2, 54:180)

Sept. 10, 1698: Antony Warshaer of Flatlands and Maritje his wife deed Stoffel Langstraat, Adrian Langstraat, Johannes Holsaer, Classje Lake and Cretje Williamse, late of Kings County, house, orchard, etc. in Flatlands bounded by property of John Vandyckhuys and Derick Amertman. The parties of the second part paying full value to Antony Holsaer, Benjamein Holsaer, Dirick Langstraat and Marytntje Langstraat when they are of age or marry the ninth part of said property. Signed by Antony alone. Wit by Henry Filkin and Ferdinand Vansycklyn, Jr. Ack. Sept. 15, Rec'd Sept. 16, 1698 before and by Henry Filkin, Reg.

We know from the ante-nuptial agreement that Dirck had three children by his first wife Catherine, viz. eldest son Stoffel and a brother and a sister. In the Warshaer deed we learn the name of the brother, i.e. Arian (Adrian, Aaron). We learn the name of the sister, Classje, from (M-11). Thus Dirck's first three children, by Catherine, were: Stoffel, Adrian and Classje. The Warshaer deed names two more as minors in 1698, and therefore of the second marriage, i.e. Dirick and Maryntje.

This list of five does not wholly agree with the Flatlands census of 1698. Who the third child of that list may have been remains undetermined.

The list of five is also in diagreement with (L-20), where Bergen states that the children of Dirck were: Stoffel, Classje, Adrian, Richard of Shrewsbury, Johannis (sup), and Samuel (sup). Berger may have counted Johannis Holsard of the Warshaer deed as a Longstreet, in error. Of his "Samuel", there is no present explanation. Nor do we know why Bergen credited "Richard of Shrewsbury" to a place as a son of the Immigrant Dirck, for the Warshaer deed again lists "Dirick" as a minor in 1698, and in any case born after 1690, as a son of Dirck and Johanna. In the light of such data as we now have, it seems likely that this "Richard" is a grandson of Dirck by his son Stoffel, and the author of will #2659M (see later); that is, he is the Dirick b. 1696 to Stoffel and Mayke Lanen. Therefore we shall proceed to develop his family history on the assumption that the immigrant ancestor founded his line upon the two elder sons, viz. Stoffel and Adrian (Aaron). Of his third son, by Johanna, we have no further data.


DESCENDANTS IN THE MALE LINE
OF DIRCK STOFFELSE

NOTE: The children of female Longstreets are reported with brief data, using for them the system of Roman numerals. Male descendants are listed with Arabic numerals. Grandchildren of female Longstreets are not reported. This purports to be a Longstreet family history.


THE FIRST GENERATION

1. DIRCK STOFFELSE
2. Stoffel Dircksen b. ca. 1666
3. Classje Dircksen b. ca. 1672
4. Adrian (Aaron) bp. 9-16-1677

(Omitting Dirck's two children by his second marriage - Dirick and Maryntje - for neither of whom we have any record of issue.) [Note]


THE SECOND GENERATION

2. STOFFEL DIRCKSEN LANGESTRAET, F1, b. ca. 1666, probably in Flatlands, L.I. and moved to Monmouth County, N.J. sometime near 1700. The "American Weekly Mercury" of Feb 14-21, 1726/7 is quoted in the N.J.A. 111:118 to the effect that Theophilus (or Stoffel) Langstraat from "the Shrewsbury in East Jersey" on Saturday, Dec. 31, 1726, "aged near 60 years met with seven swans flying over a meadow and shot down six of these with one shot". The achievement may well be inaccurately reported but it does give us the birthdate for Stoffel Dircksen. Bergen is our authority for the statement that he m. Mayke Laanen, dau. of Gysbrecht Tuysz Lanen Van Pelt of New Amsterdamk, and that he was a deacon of the Flatlands Dutch Reformed Church in 1698, and "removed to the Neversinks in Monmouth County, New Jersey, where his descendants abound to this day".

12-1-1739 "in the 13th year of His Majesty King George the Seconds Reign" proved at Perth Amboy, 3-1-1741, executors being his sons Richard, Aury and Theophilus. The will begins with these words:

In the name of God Amen. I Theophilus Longstreet of the town of Shrewsbury in the county of Monmouth and eastern division of the Province of New Jersey, yeoman, being in good health of body and of sound and dispensing mind and memory, thanks be given to Almighty God for that and all other manifold mercies to me, do in this my time of health ordain and constitute this my last will and testament, in the manner following, that is to say, first and principally I give and recommend my soul into the hands of God that gave it, and my body to the earth to be decently burried.....nothing doubting but at the general resurrection to receive the same again by the mighty power of God.....

The will is signed: STOFFEL LANGSTRAAT. (Apparently the one drawing the will for him, used "Theophilus" as equal to "Stoffel".

In the will, Stoffel refers to his "beloved wife Mercy" (Mayke), to eldest son Richard to whom he gave a plantation on the north side of the Manasquan River, to "second son Gilbert", to "third son Aury" to whom he gave a tract "at Raritom", to a fourth son Theophilus, and bequeathed 100 pounds each to his daughters Yonica, Catherine, Mary, Sarah, Moica and Anne.

Stoffel's wife Mayke also wrote a will which has survived, signed by her with her mark, 4-8-1752 and proved 3-13-1753. She named of the sons only Stoophel and Gisbert. Mayke herself is named in her father's will of 11-7-1720 as "wife of Stoffel Langstraat". Her father signed his will as "Gilbert Lane", but his formal Dutch name was Gysbrecht Tuysz Laanen Van Pelt. In (P-8, 2:115-6) we read that Mayke's father moved to Monmouth County about 1700. He had a ... (Printing error)

It is not possible to establish accurately the dates of birth of the children of Stoffel and Mayke, save for those whose names are entered in the Register of the "Old Brick Church" of Marlboro and which are marked with an asterisk (*) below. The date for the birth of Dirck (Richard) is in the Register of the Dutch Reformed Church of Brooklyn. The psresumed order of birth of the children is as follows:

5. Dirck (Richard) bp. 4-25-1696
6. Jonica
7. Catherine
8. Mary bp. 5-6-1702 (Bergen)
9. Sarah bp. 11-26-1710*
10. Gisbert bp. 11-26-1710*
11. Aurie (Awrey, Aaron) bp. 11-26-1710*
12. Stoffel bp. 12-25-1713*
13. Moica bp. 5-6-1715*
14. Ann b. ca. 1718 (Bergen)
3. CLASSJE DIRCKSEN LANGESTRAET, F1, b. 1672, m. Abraham Lott (P-2,Oct 1952) of Long Island. The Reformed Dutch Church record in Brooklyn has this 4-25-1696 entry:

Jan Abraham Lodt and Classje Langstraat, parents. Dirck Langstreet and Johanna Havens, wit.

Dirck Stoffel Langstraat and Mayke Lanen, parents. Dirck Langstraat and Classje, wit.

From the same church records, we establish the children of Classje as follows:
i. Rem
ii. Hendrick
iii. Jacob
iv. Isaac
v. Abraham
vi. John bp. 4-25-1696
vii. Peter viii. Charity

4. ADRIAN (AARON) LANGESTRAET, F1, bp. 9-16-1677, d. 1728, m. Christine Janse. (L-20) states that he was "on the assessment roll of Flatlands, L.I. in the census of 1698; deacon of the Freehold, New Jersey Dutch Reformed Church, 1721, to which place he had removed. Issue all baptized in Marlboro, NJ" i.e. in the Dutch Reformed Church of the Navesink, serving the area of Freehold, Middleton, Holmdel, Marlboro, etc., the "Old Brick Church".

Adrian's will (#397M) dated 3-3-1727, refers to his wife Styntje (Christina). Ellis (L-12) gives the date of marriage as 1707. The will is signed "Aaron". The descendants who contributed data to Lee (L-9) reported that Adrian was a cordswainer and had a farm near Holmdel (Freehold) which is doubtless the present "Longstreet Farm", long held by members of the family but now in other hands. Of the children mentioned in the will, only four are recorded as baptized at Marlboro (these are marked with an asterisk (*) below.)

15. Katrinke bp. 11-27-1709*
16. Jan bp. 1-13-1711*
17. Dirck b. ca. 1713 (L-20)
18. Nelly b. ca. 1715 (L-20)
19. Winifred b. ca. 1718 (L-20)
20. Maria b. ca. 1721 (L-20)
21. Arianche bp. 10-3-1723*
22. Stophel bp. 4-10-1726*
23. An unborn child mentioned in the will (1727)
The spreceding pages have named the children and the grandchildren of our immigrant ancestor. In the male line, we have thus set up through the sons of Stoffel and Adrian (Aaron) the following third generation "Heads of Families":

Dirck (5) and Gisbert (10) The Manasquan Line
Aurie (Awrey) (11) The Brunswick Line
Stoffel (12) The Southern Line
Jan (John) (16) The Freehold Line
Richard (17) The Princeton Line (shortlived)
Stoffel (22) Probably has no living descendants


THE THIRD GENERATION

5. DIRCK (RICHARD) bp. 4-25-1696 in the Reformed Dutch Church in Brooklyn, L.I. (M-11,I,79). Bergen (L-20) states that Dirck m. Jonica (Jane) and was probably dead at the time of his father's will (1739) but upon what grounds is not apparent. It seems more likely that this is the "Richard of Shrewsbury" who wrote will #2659M, dated 12-23-1759, proved 4-18-1761. The descendants who supplied data for Ogden (L-6), if they were well informed, made this identification. Richard, in his will, refers to his wife "my well-adored Alice". She seems to have been dau. of Samuel Osborn (1680-1754) of Shrewsbury, whose will #2307M, dated 3-21-1754, names his fourth child as "Alice Longstreet". Richard also refers to a plantation at Manasquan which his father "bought of John West and by his will gave to me" (Will #1001M).

Richard named as his children: eldest son then living, Samuel; two younger sons, Awrey and Richard; three older daughters, viz. Catherine, Moica and Mary; daughters Alice and Ann; two grand-daughters by eldest son Stophel deceased, viz. Catherine and Alice.

The Second Book of Shrewsbury Friends Record, under date of "1767, 9, 12 mo" lists as witnesses at a wedding in Manasquan what are probably four of the above children, viz. Anne, Else, Catherine, Samuel.

The order of birth of Richard's children is not established by baptismal records (save for the last two which are to be found in the Parish Record of Christ Church in Shrewsbury.)

24. Catherine
25. Moica b. ca. 1730
26. Stophel
27. Samuel
28. Mary
29. Awrey
30. Alice (perhaps b. 1-13-1742)
31. Richard bp. 12-13-1745, aged 3 mos.
32. Anne bp. 6-17-1748, aged 2 weeks, 3 days

6. JONICA (JANE) m. (1) William Osborn, (2) Peter Knott of Deal, NJ (F-11,IV,153;8,69). Her will is dated 10-10-1774. Order of birth of children is uncertain:

i. Maycah m. 11-16-1749
ii. Richard
iii. Catherine m. S. Osborn
iv. Stauffel

7. CATHERINE prob. the Katrina (Karyntie) Langestraet who m. Jan Sutven and had 5 children bp. at Marlboro:

i. ____________ bp. 4-10-1726
ii. Maria bp. 5-21-1732
iii. Jannetje bp. 8-25-1733/4
iv. Christopher bp. 3-6-1737
v. Christopher bp. 6-17-1738

8. MARIA (MARY) bp. 5-6-1702 according to Bergen (L-20). The "Old Brick Church" records two baptisms by parents Maria and Willem Hendrickse which seem to belong here:

i. Catherine bp. 9-15-1732
ii. Daniel bp. 11-25-1736

9. SARAH b. ca 1705, bp. 11-26-1710, Probably m. William Logan and had:

i. Mary who m. Cornelilus Cowenhoven

10. GISBERT (Variously spelled Guysbrecht, Gysbrecht, Guisbert, and finally Gilbert), b. ca. 1707, bp. 11-26-1710 (Old Brick Church), m. Rachel Schenck, dau. of Garret Reolofse and Neeltje Coerten (Van Vorhees) Schenck (F-9,40). He was a resident of Shrewsbury Tp, in 'Squan, and is probably the Gllllytsbrecht Longstreet who was appointed a Justice in Monmouth County on 6-6-1751, and on 3-16-1756 (M-12,22:242). His will (#2301M), dated 4-20-1755, proved 11-8-1758, refers to his wife Rachel, sons Garret and Gilbert (minors), and to daughters Moyca, Molley, Jane and Rachel. The order of birth is not known:

33. Garret
34. Gisbert
35. Moyca
36. Nelle
37. Jane
38. Rachel
. Elizabeth
(Data added)

11. AWREY (AURY) bp. at Marlboro, NJ, 11-6-1710, m. (1) Catherine Osborn, dau. of Samuel Osborn and Katherine Pullion, of Shrewsbury, (See will of Samuel Osborn, dated 5-21-1754). He m. (2) Lydia Hull (NJA 22:242), d. 1793. His will dated 8-20-1791 (#8221L), proved 6-11-1793, reads in part:

In the name of God Amen, I Awrey Longstreet of the County of Middlesex Corporation of New Brunswick and Eastern Division of the State of New Jersey, Yeoman, being in perfect Health of Body and sound and disposing mind and memory many thanks be given to Almighty God for that and all other his manifold mercies to me and as it is appointed to all men to die I do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament in manner following that is to say my principally and first of all, I give and commend my Soul into the hands of almighty God who gave it and my Body to the earth to be decently buried at the discretion of my Executors nothing doubting but at the general resurrection to receive the same again by the mighty power of God, and as touching my Temporal Estate wherewith it has pleased God to bless me in this life I give and bequeath the same after the following manner and form, viz....

Awrey gave his "beloved wife Lydia...one feather bed and furniture for same and likewise my riding-chair and harness...and my negro Caesar"; Awrey made bequests to the "two sons of my eldest daughter Moica, John Reid and Aaron Reid"; he gave his clock to his son Christopher; to his son Aaron he gave his smith tools and "all that part of my land situate and lying on the east side of the brook on which Thomas Van Dyke formerly built a saw-mill"; he gave his daughter Ann, wife of William Surtis, 120 pounds of "prock" money; to "the children of my son Derick Longstreet deceased, 100 poounds; to three children of "my deceased son James in the followin manner, viz. to his two sons cornelius and Aaron 100 pounds and to his daughter Helena 50 pounds"; to his daughter Lydia, wife of Mather Van Dyke 100 pounds and also "twelve acres of woodland lying on Rocky Hill in the County of Middlesex on the easterly side of the Great Road"....He appointed as executors" Samual Longstreet, Christopher Longstreet and Aaron Longstreet, all of them my sons". Awrey's residence in Middlesex Countly, at Rocky Hill, was doubtless due to "the tract at Raritom" bequeathed him by his father (see will #1001M). The exact location of this property has not be determined. In 1766 a re-survey of the Somerset-Middlesex County line was made, and a preserved copy shows "Longstreet Road" on the Middlesex County side of the lline, next to Rocky Brook, just west of Kingston and Millstone River. We do not knowhow early Awrey occupied his tract in what, after 1700, was created into South Brunswick Tp, an area about seven by eight miles and in which area came to be settled the towns of Kingston, Rocky Hill and Cranbury (L-11,I,p.52). Awrey is listed as a freeholder there in 1748 (L-8,p.358). There is a deed which he signed as "arre" in Lib. H-2, p.398, in 1754. In the Trenton State House are many "Retables" or tax lists on which Awrey (listed as "Aaron") owned 350 acres of improved land valued at 70 pounds, 7 horses, 15 head of cattle, 10 hogs and one slave. In 1786, his taxes were three pounds, o-half shilling and two pence. His farm suffered some damage from the British during the Revolution, evidence of which may be seen in a claim which he filed 10-19-1782 (see file in Trenton State House) and which asserts that in December, 1776, the British took away 5 loads of oats, some tanned calf-skins, one pair of stockintgs, worsted rope, 6 barrels of apples, 3 loaves of bread, and "one day with horse and wagon".

Awrey Longstreet, being sworn, saith that the above inventory is just and true to the best of my knowledge and that he was knowing to the British troops and their adherents during part of the above damage and that he has just reason to believe that they did the remainder and that he has not received any satisfaction for any of the articles.

The order of birth of Awrey's children is difficult to determine. Only one baptismal record has been found and that seems to be for his eighth and last child(probably the only child born of his second marriage). He names in his will Moica as eldest daughter and refers to her first. Her com. inscr. (Topanemus Cem. near Marlboro) shows that she was b. 5-15-1755. His second named child in the will is son Samuel and if this is the Samuel bur. First Presbyterian Churchyard at Cranbury, he was b. 1738. The inscr. reads "died 12-21-1829 in the 91st year of his age". If, as seems most probable, the Aaron bur. in the Presbyterian Churchyard at Kingston is Awrey's son, the he was b. 1741 (SAR application papers #36022 and #45468). The cem. inscr. reads that he d. 5-25-1829 in 88th year; the worn stone bears marks which well may have been "junior", an appelation found frequently in the records of the time for this son of Awrey. The daughter Ann who m. William Burtis 3-15-1764 was, therefore, not born much later than 1746. The son James has a son b. 1777 (as per cem. enscr. in Onondage Vallen, N.Y.) who m. a wife who was pb. before 1755; therefore James was in all likelihood b. of Awrey's first marriage.

In the light of such data as we have, the following is proposed as the order of birth of Awrey's children:

39. Moica b. 5-15-1735
40. Samuel b. 1738
41. Christopher
42. Aaron b. 1741
43. Ann b. ca. 1745
44. Derrick b. ca. 1747
45. James b. ca. 1750
46. Lydia bp. 6-10-1759 (as per entry in Symmes "History of Old Tennent Church", p 214 which reads: "Aaron of Rocky Hill had baptized Lydia").

12. STOPHEL (CHRISTOPHER) b. 7-14-1712, bp. 12-25-1713 in the Old Brick Church at Marlboro, m. 12-16-1743 Abigail Wooley, dau of Thomas Wooley, d. 8-31-1782. Abigail was b. 5-17-1717 BS S, 5-25-1786 (F-2). Stophen is the progenitor of the Southern line of Longstreets. He lived in Upper Freehold Tp where, on the "Retables", he is listed as "Stofil". A number of deeds executed by him are in the files at the Trenton State House. Prior to 175 he lived in Shrewsbury Tp. Symmes in his History (supra) noted that Stophen "was one of the first trustees of the Old Tennent Church which was granted a royal charter 2-21-1750. He was the son of "Theophilus" and his wife Mercy Lane, and was bp. in the Dutch Reformed Church in Long Island (in this, Symmes seems to err). He m. Abigail Wooley Dec. 1743 and moved to Allentown, 1756, where he bought a grist-mill, concluded Symmes. The list of children found in Mayes' small history of the Southern branch does not agree entirely with the list named in Stophel's will (#5252N) dated 11-19-1779. Daniel was probably deceased by that date and is not named in the will. But Daniel is named as a son in a deed by Stophel (See Bk g-3, p. 332). The children of Stophel and Abigail:

47. John b. 1744 according to cem. inscr. at Jacobstown, NJ.
48. Daniel
49. Gilbert
50. William b. 10-6-1759 (cem. inscr. Augusta, Ga.)
51. Mary
52. Lydia

13. MOICA (Mayke) bp. 3-6-1716 (as per Marlboro Register) not to be confused with the Moica dau. of #5 Dirck who m. Rinear Van Sickle and had a child as late as 1771. Symmes (l-14) states that she m. John Little, a judge in the Monmouth County courts. (May be same as Johannes Leek). Children see to have been:

i. Mercy (Mary) b. 4-5-1739 m. Daniel Schenck 6-21-1759 (H&GM IV, p. 240)
ii. Elizabeth bp 6-3-1749 (Old Brick Church Register).

14. ANNE b. ca. 1718 (Bergen). Probably the Anne who m. Samuel Osborn, Jr. as his first wife 7-5-1740, and had:

i. Samuel ii. Mercy iii. Catherine (?)

15. CATHERINE (KATRINKE) bp. 11-27-1705 as per Register of the Old Brick Church (Marlboro). No further data.

16. JAN (JOHN) bp. Marlboro 1-13-1711, m. Antje Kuowenhoven, 12-17-1736 (L-20). The Old Brick Church Register contains several baptisms of children of Jan and Antje. He lived in Freehold Tp and his name appears on the "Retables" from 1748 to 1785 as "John". There is no surviving will. This may be the "Johon, Esq." who was a justice in Freehold 4-27-1780 (H&GM V, p. 399), and who was received into membership in his old age in the Marlboro church:

The names of Persons Received into visible membership in the Unighted (sic) Congregation of Freehold and Middletown under the Ministry of the Reverend Benj. DuBois........JOHN LONGSTREET, ESQ.....received on confession of faith, 4-24-1787

Jan's children were:

53. Aaron bp 7-25-1737
54. Pietras (Peter) - the name appears in some local histories but not on the baptismal record. 55. Jan bp. 6-24-1744
56. Elias bp 9-6-1747
57. Aaron bp. 7-22-1753
58. Antje bp. 10-3-1756

17. DIRCK (DERRICK, RICHARD) There is no final proof tht this son of #4 Adrian is the "Richard of Princeton" for whom there are several printed accounts, e.g. Holman in (F-8) and Hegeman (L-9). Both agree on the names of the children, but neigher has complete vital statistics. Holman states that Richard of Princeton d. before 1790. But the New Jersey State Gazette reads:

Died on Monday, 14th inst. at his home near Princeton. Mr. Richard Longstreet, aged 77 years. Few men have lived to his age more generally respected or died more sincerely regretted. (Issue of 12-22-1795)
Bergen gives date of birth as 1713 (L-20). But according to the Gazette item Richard was b. 1718. These discrepancie cast doubt upon the identity of Richard of Princeton with #17 Dirck, but the identity is assumed for the purposes of this account.

Richard was a framer in Somerset County (Mercer County had not been created at that time. He was an elder in the local church. It is proabably that he is the one referred to as "put up for the New Jersey Legislature" at a meeting held in Harlingen, 10-5-1782.

He is surely the intestate Derrick Longstreet of #1013R whose inventoroy was dated 12-26-1795 and for whose estate letters of administration were issued to Peter Strycker, Catherine Longstreet and Samuel Scudder. The children of Richard of Princeton:

59. Eleanor
60. Mary
61. Richard
62. Aaron

18. NELLY b. ca. 1715 (L-20). This is probably the Neeltje Longstreet who m. Cornelius Lane of Readington (SCHQ 3:215 & 218) where we find these children listed:

i. Catherine b. 11-12-1734
ii. Aaron (Aury in the Family Bible) b. 12-30-1736
iii. Gilbert (bp Gysbert) 4-23-1739
iv. Christian (bp. Styntie) b. 4-30-1741
v. Mary b. 11-9-1743
vi. Cornelius b. 2-17-1745
vii. Abraham b. 11-18-1748
viii. John b. 3-2-1751
ix. Jacob. b. 5-29-1753
x. Neeltje b. 4-6-1757

19. WINIFRED b. ca. 1721 (L-20). This is perhaps the Nyntje whose m. lic. to William Guyon dated 10-1-1742 is in (M-12 22:254).

20. MARIA b. ca. 1721 (L-20). Probably the Maria who m. Dirck Zutveen (Sutphen) 12-5-1742 and had baptized at Marlboro:

< i. Catharina bp. 12-11-1743/4
ii. Abraham bp. 6-9-1745
iii. Maria bp. 4-17-1748
iv. Aaron bp. 8-29-17--

21. ARIANCHE (ANN) bp. 10-3-1723 in the Marlboro Church, Probably the Arianche whose mar. lic. to Dirck Aten, dated 8-16-1749 is in N.J. Archives 22:253, and who had three children baptized in the Readington church (SCQN 4:307; 5:56 & 60)

i. Judick bp. 9-30-1750
ii. Adrian bp. 4-22-1753
iii. Christine bp. 4-26-1756

22. STOPHEL bp. 4-10-1726 (Marlboro), m. 11-28-1753 (M-12 22:242) Neeltje Schenck, dau. Koert Schenck and Mary Peterse Cowenhoven (F-9 p. 42) Residence, Freehold Tp. His will (#2293M) recorded 11-4-1758 names two children:

63. Christine bp. 11-3-1754 (Marlboro)
64. Court bp. 3-6-1757 (Marlboro)
The church register spells the father's name "Christopher" and "Christophel" and the surname "Langstraet".

23. _________________ This unknown child, mentioned in father's will as then not born, may be the Johoanna who m. Pieter Monfoort of Hunterdon County, N.J. (SCHQ 5:56).

This ends our account of the lives of the grand-children of the immigrant Ancestor and of the third generation in America. We proceed now to the fourth generation and the great grand-children.


THE FOURTH GENERATION

24. CATHERINE This may be the Catherine whose mar. lic. to William Chamberlain, 12-22-1746 is in NJ Archives 22:253. If correct, she had several children. In H&GM 3:164 is the record of one:
i. Richard bp. 5-18-1748

25. MOICA m. Rinaer Van Sickle of Hunterdon County, NJ 4-29-1746 (Mar. Lic. Bk V, p40) The marriage bond has a signature which may be that of her brother but is not that of her father. Her children were (FH 7):
i. Dirck b. 9-11-147 m. Mary Cain
ii. Rynier b. 11-28-1749 m. Rebecca Firman
iii. Annetje b. 4-18-1752 m. George Warne
iv. Elsje b. 9-11-1754 d. 1763
v. Katrina b. 6-15-1758 m. Jacob Probasco
vi. Lydia b. 6-20-1760 d. 7-17-1790
vii. Aaron b. 7-8-1764 m Catherine Opdyke
viii. Peter b. 8-26-1766 m. Ellen Vanderbilt
ix. Samuel b. 1-28-1769 m (1) Johanna Oxford (2) her sister
x. David b. 7-17-1771 m. Mary Opdyke

26. STOPHEL. His father's will (#2659M) names two daughters:
65. Catherine
66. Alice

27. SAMUEL. The Samuel of (LH20) is considered to be mis identified. The mar. lic. of 10-30-1756 to Barbara Antonides may belong here. This #27 Samuel is probably also the Samuel of Shrewsbury who was elected to the Committee of Observation 5-27-1775 (Misc. 12, 10:600). The Monmouth County Inventory of 4-6-1801 (#8453M) probably belongs here. No will has survived and we have no present knowledge of his descendants, if any.
28. MARY. This may be the Mary whose mar. lic. to Francis Jeffry in 12-12-1757 is recorded in NJ Archives 22:253.
29. AWREY. This is probably the author of will #2657M dated 1-10-1760, signed "Aaron", in which the author refers to the brothers Samuel and Derrick, to a dau. of Bro. Stoffel (i.e. Catherine), and to "my uncle Samuel" (apparently to Samuel Osborn; his mother had a bro. of that name). His will mentions neither wife nor child; he d. ca. 1761.
30. ALICE. This is not the Alice of (FH 14, p387). We have no record of the life of #30 Alice.
31. RICHARD (DERRICK) bp. 12-13-1745 aet. 3 mos., d. 6-20-1827 "aged 85 years and about 2 mos." (H&GM I, 164; GM of NJ, XV 51) His will (Mon Co Bk B, p 62) dated 7-11-1826, does not name wife; it refers to a grandson of his deceased son David and to children of his deceased dau. Mary Morton, and to Deborah, a grand-dau. by his son Richard's first wife Lydia Morton; he also mentions sons William and Samuel, and Samuel's son who was "disinherited", and daughters Elizabeth and Alice, and son John deceased. His inventory (Bk H, 416) is dated 7-10-1827, The order of birth of his children cannot be determined from any known records. His will was protested on the charge that he was not sober when he signed it "after a visit to Clayton's tavern"; the order of the nine children found in the file of this protest does not agree with the order by which eight children are named in the will, nor with the order reported in (LH 6). However, we do have cem. inscr. for the birth of Richard and William, 1767 and 1788 respectively, and we know the dates of marriage of three of the other sons. On such basis we present the following order:

67. Richard b. 1767
68. Samuel
69. David
70. William
71. John
72. Theophilus
73. Mary
74. Elizabeth
75. Alice

The executors of the will of #31 Richard were Tabor Chadwick and Richard Longstreet. Richard's residence was Manasquan, Monmouth County, NJ (Howell Tp. created out of Shrewsbury Tp) A contemporary news item states that: "About 135 of the enemy landed Sunday last (April, 1778) on the south side of 'Squan Inlet....then crossed the river and burnt all except Dirrick Longstreet's; after this mischief they embarked".
32. ANNE LONGSTREET No data available.
33. GARRETT LONGSTREET. Evidence that #33 Garret was the son of #10 Gisbert is found in an indenture dated 11-13-1793 between Richard, Garret and Gisbert Longstreet on the one side and John Polon on the other, all of Shrewsbury Tp. referring to a piece of "meadow given in the last will and testament of the present grantors' grandfather Theophilus Longstreet to his two sons as joint pardners Dereck Longstreet and Gisbert Longstreet, and from them the said Dereck Longstreet and Gisbert Longstreet, with more, was bequeathed to us". (This indenture is in the possession of Miss Martha Poland, Manasquan, NJ.) See also will #1001M of Theophilus in which he devised jointly to "Derrick and Gisbut" the plantation on the north side of the Manasquan River. In his will (Bk 8, p.123) dated 7-26-1818, Garret describes himself as "of Howell", the name of the new Tp in which Manasquan was located, and he names the three sons referred to below. The inventory of his estate was made 8-1-1818 (Bk E, p.134). There is a cem. inscr. at Brielle which reads "Lydia, wife of Garret Longstreet, d. 8-13-1812 aged 69.3.19". This would be the Lydia Barraclow whom Garret m. 12-16-1802 (Mar. B,. A, p.71), apparently a second wife in his old age. There are two other marriage records, either or both of which may be Garret's; the mar. lic. of 12-27-1763 to Catherine Smock (DAR Lin. Bk. 103, p.259) and to Catherine Lawrence 5-9-1761 (NJ Archives 22:243). The Shrewsbury Ratables list Garret from 1779 to 1794. He is probably the Garret appointed to the Committte of Observation in Shrewsbury 5-27-1775 (Misc.12, 10:600 ). According to DAR application papers, he was a "judge in the inferior court of common pleas" in 1814, and a captain of the militia in 1776. But the date of birth in the DAR papers (1750) seems to be in error. His children were:
76. Gisbert b. 1770 (DAR lin. supra)
77. Barnes
78. Hendrick


34. GISBERT LONGSTREET. No data available.


35. MOICA LONGSTREET In her father's will (#2301M) three children are named but we do not know whom she married.
i. Nelly
ii. Rachel
iii.Noira (?)


36. NELLE LONGSTREET m. James Irons (Data added)
i. Rachel
ii. Francis
iii. James (III)
iv. Garret
v. Gisbert
vi. John


37. JANE m._______ Lake and had at least:
i. Guisbert
38. RACHEL. This may be the "Rachal" whose mar. lic. is listed in N.J.Archives 22:254 to Jacob Van Dorn in 10-21-1763, and to William Hendricksen in 2-22-1768. There is also (SCHQ 2:228) record of cem. inscr. in Old Bedh\minster of a Rachel Longstreet, wife of William Van Doren, d. 7-16-1765. At present, these data are unexplained.
39. MOIKEY (MOICA) b. 5-15-1735, m. James Reid 5-28-1754, d. 8-11-1757. A cem. inscr. in Topanemus Cem., Marlboro, N.J. refers to her as dau. of Aaron and Catherine Longstreet. Her father's will names two son; there may have been others.
i. John I. b. 10-2-1754, d. 5-12-1843, m. Margaret Taylor (1751-1834).
ii. Aaron b. 1756, d. 1839, m. Rebecca Clayton
40. SAMUEL. In the First Presbyterian Churchyard, Cranbury, N>J> is the tombstone which proabbly belongs to thlis oldest (?) son of #11 Awrey. The marker stands somewhat by itself (i.e. not with the other Longstreet burials there) and is the oldest marked grave of any Longstreet known to the writer, i.e. it is to a Longstreet b. 1738. The inscr. reads, "In Memory of Samuel Longstreet who died 12-21-1829 in the 91st year of his age". Note that "94th" is the reading in (LH 4) and in the "Detroit Soc. for Gen. Res. Mag." This cem. inscr. is that of the Longstreet-Dye Family Bible quoted in the "Detroiter Mag." If will #11432L dated 11-2-1827 is by this Cranbury Samuel, hils children are as given below. But the identification of him with Awrey's son #40 Samuel rests at plresent on reasonable conjecture only. In hils will, Samuel mentions a grandson Samuel by William, and grandchildren by dau. Hannah.
79. William
80. Aaron
81. Hannah (wife of Jos. Mount)
82. Mary (wife of Isaac Forman)
83. Abigail (wife of Ezekiel Dye)
84. Ann (wife of John Dye)
85. John
#85 John is not named in the will for the reason that he was deceased at that time. But John's will in Lib.34, p. 282 dated 2-9-1792 refers to father Samuel, sister Anna Dye, half-sister Ann Mount, sisters Mary and Abbe. Thus #40 Samuel was twice married, but we have no records thereof.
41. CHRISTOPHER. This is probably the "Colonel Christopher" of Sussex County, NJ (LH 7,III,p.1284); (Misc. 14,pp399,409), and who was a captain in the Revolution, a member of the NJ Legislature, trustee of the First Presbyterian Church in Hardyston, NJ 11-23-1786, township tax collector of Newton NJ in 1785, and who moved to New Milford Tp., Penn. where his wife Gertrude (Seely) d. 1800. (Cem. inscr. Hillside Cem.) There are two deeds in Newton, Sussex County, executed by Christopher and Gertrude in 1798 (Bk T, p 287), and another 1795 (Bk L, p 488) and in each residence is given as South Brunwick Tp, Middlesex County, NJ. There are four other conveyances apparently by this Christopher, giving same residence. In two of these, he refers to a Christopher Jr of Sussex County, probably his son. According to descendants (Dr. Martha Longstreet of Saginaw, Michigan) Christopher had at least three children, of whom two are named below.
There is also a deed in Sussex County (Bk B, p 262) which names Elizabeth as Christopher's wife, and this may have some connection with a note in NYG & BR V, p 122, 216 and 230 where a Christopher Longstreed had baptized a son Christopher at Minisink Valley, 8-23-1801, and where Elizabeth was baptized as an adult 10-26-1816.

42. AARON LONGSTREET. b. 1741, d. 5-25-1829 (cem. inscr. Kingston, NJ) In the "Ratables" for the "South Ward" of New Brunswick Tp. "Aaron Jr" is listed with "Aaron" from 1780 to year of death of the latter (#11 Awrie) in 1793 . The designation "jr" is also used in signing a claim for damages by British troops during the Revolution, the claim is dated 10-24-1782, and is for "two tons of hay, 300 bu. of coal, iron and steel, small tools of smith shop: etc. (Filed in the Office of the Secretary of State of New Jersey). In SAR applications #36022 and #45468, the applicants identify their Revolutionary ancestor as "Jr" and further identify him with will #113511, dated 12-11-1826, South Brunswick Tp. and with the cem. inscr. in the Presbyterian Churchyard in Kingston, NJ, and with that of his wife Ann Wetherill who d. 4-17-1832 in her 90th year. She was probably the dau. of George Wetherill of the same Tp, whose will #10086L, proved 11-30-1805 names Ann as youngest of four children, and names also a grandson William Longstreet. The executors of Wetherill's will were his daughter and his son-in-law, Aaron Longstreet. (Misc. 14) gives Aaron Jr. as a Captain of the Revolutionary Army in 1776, in the 3rd Reg. of Middlesex County Militia, and as having been in the battles of Monmouth (6-28-1778), of Connecticut Farms (8-7-1780), and of Springfield (6-23-1780). He was a member of the general courts martial in New Brunswick 1-28-1782. (See SAR papers.)
The A.G.O. in National Archives Bldg in Washington, DC, has a file on Aaron Jr. - 6431 1/2, dated 12-10-1851) - which reveals that there was no evidence of his service in the Continental Line of NJ "in any capacity or at any time", and that therefore the claim of a son of Aaron Jr when he d. was denied. This file contains a deposition by William, son of Aaron Jr. giving residence as South Brunswick and age as 84, and names of surviving children of Aaron (referred to as "Captain"), and names the places of military service and the battles of which he had heard his father speak. Thus it seems conclusive that Aaron Jr was only in the militia of New Jersey. His will #11361L dated 4-11-1826 names the children below. The married names of daughters are in parenthesis:
89. William, b. 7-10-176_ (SAR papers)
90. Catherine (Gulick), bp. 5-10-1767 (SCHQ 8:228) "Eron Longstraat and Anne had Cate baptized at Sixmile Run". There was a Dutch Reformed Church at this point on a brook (a "run") six miles from the town of New Brunswick.
91. Betsy (Rule)
92. Ann (Bestedo)
93. Aaron b. 3-3-1775 (letter from descendant)
94. Euphemia (Bestedo), b. 1781 (cem. inscr. Kingston, NJ)
95. Samuel, b. 11-3-1782 if cem. inscr. at Kingston, NJ, belongs here, and d. 8-6-1839, aged 56.9.3


43. ANN LONGSTREET b. ca. 1744, m. 1764 William Burtis as per will #8221L.
44. DERRICK (RICHARD) LONGSTREET There is uncertainty as to the identity of this Richard. It is possible that he was the Richard of Sussex described in #227S dated 11-27-1776, a resident of Hardwick, to whose wife Effy, letters of administration were given on that date. Effy is probably the Euphemia Van Dyne who m. (2) Ezekiel Ayers of Hacketstown, Warren County, NJ. In her will (Lib. 40, p. 41) she refers to four children by her first marriage, naming Aaron Longstreet, Lydia Landon, Christopher Longstreet and Euphemia. The Hillick Family Bible gives the children and dates which appear below:
96. Christopher bh. 12-21-1766
97. Elsey b. 4-26-1768
98. Lydia b. 2-12-1770
99. Isaac b. 6-30-1772
100 Aaron b. 9-30-1774
101 Euphemia b. 12-29-1776

It is possible that this Richard of Sussex is the son of #17 Dirck whom we have tentatively accepted as "Richard of Princeton". In the light of such data as we now possess, we have decided to accept the former hypothesis.


45. JAMES LONGSTREET. Probably b. ca. 1750 in South Brunswick Tp. He m. Elizabeth Ten Broeck, dau of Cornellius Ten Broeck and Margaret Luow. Elizabeth was b. at Harlingen, NJ and was bp. at Sixmile Run 7-13-1755 (NYG&B 16:153). The statement found in this ref. that she m(1) Christopher Van Pelt must be in error. James is listed in the New Brunswick "Ratables" 1778 to 1784. He d. 1785; on 9-8-1785 an inventory of his estate was filed (#6855L) and his wife and her brother-in-law Aaron Longstreet, Jr., were appointed administrators. On 1-1-1787 the Orphans Court at New Brunswick (OC-I, pp.29-31), on request of the widow for an accounting, found Aaron, Jr. somewhat in arrears, ordered his release as executor, and appointed as guardian of the three children viz. Cornelius, Aaron and Helena, her brother Cornellius Ten Broeck. This James Longstreet is probably the one listed by Strycker (Misc. 14, p. 670) as a private in the State Troops of Middlesex County, in the Revolution. Of the nature of his service, nothing is known.
102. Cornelius b. 1777 (as per cem. inscr. Oakwood Cem., Syracuse, NY)
103. Aaron b. 4-11-1780
104. Helena b. 10-11-1785, See OC-I, pp.29-31, Middlesex County, NJ, for Elizabeth's expense statement: "To lying-in of my daughter Helena....and attending the child from 10-11-1785".


46. LYDIA. bp. 6-10-1759, m. Matthew Van Dyke, d. 10-18-1843. She had 6 children, names not known.
[Note: One daughter's name was Mary VanDyke, birth unknown, probably Mapleton, died 1854, married James Carnahan. From: Donna Stieber]


47. JOHN b. 1744, m. 1-28-1769 Lucy Tapscott (Misc. 12, 22:243), d. June, 1819 (cem. inscr. Jacobstown, NJ), Lucy, his wife, d. 10-21-1836 in her 86th year (b cem inscr). John was living in Burlington County, NJ, in 1776 (Deed Bk A-H, p. 500). The "Ratables" of Upper Freehold Tp list him in 1797 and 1808. He was a private in the Revolution (Misc. 12, p. 670). He left no will. In (TH 2) his children are listed as Stoffel, William, Johon, Daniel, Abigail and Lydia. But according to the Family Bible in possession of a descendant, Mrs. Emma Taylor of Allentown, NJ, the children were:
105. Gilbert b. 12-11-1788
106. Lucy,
107. William
108. Lydia
109. Abigail b 1778 (cem inscr Jacobstown, NJ)


48. DANIEL. According to Mayes (LH 2), Daniel did not marry. By his father's will (#5251M) he was deceased by 11-19-1779. Will #5909M by a brother indicates that Daniel was living in 1787. This conflict of dates or of names has not been cleared. It seems that the following letter from the Division of Information, US Marine Corps, belongs here:
Daniel Longstreet was appointed a first lieutenant of Marines on board the ship Morris, Capt. Wm. Pickles, Commander, in the service of the United Independent States of Nort America, by Oliver Pollock, Commercial Agent at New Orleans, La. on 1 April 1778...In March, 1778, Capt. James Willling, of the Marines, and a small party of men arrived in New Orleans from Pennsylvania, having traveled by way of Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. They captured a number of prizes on the Mississippi which were sold in New Orleans for $37,500.00. One of these prizes, the "Rebecca", was armed.....Pollock planned to enlist 150 men and send his ship against His Majesty's sloop of war "Sylph" which was defending Manchac on Lake Pontchartrain. By July, 1779, Pollock had succeeded in obtaining and mounting 24 guns on the decks of his ship, whilch he now rechristened the "Morris" in honor of his well-known friend Robert Morris of Philadelphia. He had appointed a fullcomplement of officers (including Daniel Longstreet as First Lieultenant of Marines) and engaged 76 men to swell the complement...Pollock decided to send the "Morris" cruising; however, a severe hurricane swept over New Orleans causing considerable damage to the town and its shipping. The "Morris" was lost and 11 of her crew were drowned. The remainder of the crew was rescued some nine miles below the town, clinging to the wreckage of their ship. Our records concerning this phase of the Revolutionary War, which are very meager, fail to reveal any further record of Daniel Longstreet.

49. GILBERT. He lived in Upper Freehold Tp. His will (#5909M) of 1787 refers to wife Helena, dau. Elenor (a minor), a nephew William (a minor and the son of John Longstreet) and a bro. Daniel. Helena was probably Elinor Hankinson whom he m. 11-22-1777 (Misc. 12, 22:243). Gilbert was lprobably a recruiting officer of the NJ continental Line (Misc. 14, p 47, 428). If the cem. inscr. in Old Tennent Churchyard belongs here, there was a daughter:
110. Eleanor b. 2-7-1780


50. WILLIAM b. 10-6-1759, m. Hannah FitzRandolph ca. 1784, d. Sept. 1814 (cem. inscr. St. Paul's Churchyard, Augusta, GA) He moved to Georgia ca. 1786. The biog. of his distinguished son Augustus Baldwin Longstreet (Misc.) gives some details of the life of William, as does also the biog of his still more distinguished grandson, General James Longstreet (Misc.2) The following newspaper story from an Atlanta newspaper (somewhat abridged here) appeared with the title "Mr. William Longstreet Pioneer in the Application of Steam Power to Navigation".
Of peculiar intereest to Augustans is the proposed celebration to take place shortly in New York of the 100th anniversary of the first successful attempt at steam navitation by Robert Fulton in 1807. This is interesting to Augustans by reason of the fact that Mr. William Longstreet of this city was the pioneer in the application of steam as a motive power, and in 1788 - years before Mr. Fulton began the study of steam power - secured a patent on a steam engine and actually had a steamboat in operation on the Savannah River a year before Mr. Fulton's trials on the Hudson River..... His greatest difficulty in making his models for his machinery...was the impossibility of obtaining proper materials...He had to use wood in building his machines, yet with this crude material, without assistance, ridiculed and laughed at by many, we find that in 1788 he had perfected and secured a patent on an engine which he applied to steam navigation. In Watkins "Digest of Georgin Law, p 382, we find that on Feb. 1, 1788, the General Assembly passed an Act "to secure Isaac Briggs and William Longstreet for the term of 14 years the sole and exclusive privilege of using a newly constructed steam engine invented by them...

On Sept. 26, 1790, William Longstreet wote a letter to the Governor of Georgia, stating, "I have no doubt you have often heard it laughed at, but in this I have only shared the fate of all other projectors, for it has uniformly been the custom of every country to ridicule even the greatest inventions until use has proved their utility".

His efforts to enlist the assistance of the Governor met with little success but...he kept faithfully at work in effort to perfect the steamboat. In the meantime he applied his knowledge of the use of steam machinery to the saw mill and to the cotton gin...

In the Augusta "Herald" of Nov. 10, 1808, there was the following article:

We are happy to announce that Mr. Longstreet's experiments with his newly ivented steamboat have answered his most sanguine expectations...The different spectators have been extremely gratified by the different essays he has made, and no doubt remains in their minds but his labors will be crowned with success.

The Atlanta newspaper article continues:

There are many of our older citizens who are positive that as early as 1806 Mr. Longstreet made a trial trip with his invention on the Savannah River' but should Mr. Fulton's trip on the Clermont be the first successful trip made by steam navigation, to Mr. Longstreet should be given the honor of the invention. For he had secured a patent on his engine, presumably designed for steam navigation, in 1788, two years before Mr. Hudson went to Europe to perfect his education...Mr. Longstreet never once relinquished his work towards perfecting the steamboat until his recorded success in 1808.

William Longstreet was a member of the Georgia Legislature in 1794-95 and the following account by Clalude G. Bowers in his "Jefferson in Power", p.299, is apropos:

In the winter of 1794-5, under the leadership of William Longstreet, a member of the Georgia Legislature, was engineered through that body by blatant criminal methods the sale to four land speculations companies of most of what is now the states of Alabama and Mississippi. It was accomplished by the most brazen and defiant bribery, in the open. The little town of Augusta was crowded with speculators wishing to be in at the kill; and not the least of them was James Wilson, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court having on his person $25,000 in bank bills.

This notorious Yazoo land scandal finally landed in the United States Supreme Court in "Fletcher vs Peck", and the Court held that the original sale was valid on the ground that the U.S. Constitution forbids a state to impair the obligation of a contract, which the succeeding Georgia Legislature attempted to do by repealing the act of sale of 1794-95. The deal included about 35,000,000 in land script to satisfy the claimants.

According to Mayes (FH2) the children of William were:

111. James b. ca. 1784 in New Jersey
112. Gilbert
113. Rebecca b. 11-9-1786
114. Rachel
115. Augustus Baldwin, b. 9-22-1790 in Augusta, GA

WILLIAM LONGSTREET'S STEAMBOAT



a 10" by 12" etching by
Wilbur G. Kurtz
shows Longstreet plying the Savannah
River in his steamboat in 1806...
two decades before Robert Fulton
conducted his first successful experiments on the Hudson River...


On the next page of this issue of the Atlanta Journal Magazine (apparently a Sunday supplement affair) Annie Laurie Fuller Kurtz has a column about the boat and its inventor, which concludes: "It is said that he and some friends were starting for Washington to secure a government patent, his state patent having expired, when the news came to him of Robert Fulton's successful voyage in his steamboat, the Clermont, up the Hudson to Albany and back to New York again - 1807. Had Longstreet acted with a little more promptness, the honor which is now accorded Fulton might have been his.

William Longstreet was the father of the eminent Augustus Baldwin Longstreet, president of the University of Mississippi, of Emory University, and of South Carolina College and also a writer of note, being the author of Georgia Scenes. He was the grandfather of General James Longstreet, Lee's right-hand man in Virginia. So, in three generations of one Georgia family we have the scientist and inventor, the educator and man of letters, and last, the eminent Southern General in Lee's army. Georgia may well be proud of the name Longstreet.

117. Elias bp. 6-14-1767
118. Anne bp. 4-29-1770


55. JAN (John) bp. 6-24-1744 at Marlboro. This is probably the John who was a Loyalist, as per (Misc. 3, 10:137), (NJHQ 11:433): "John Jr. was b. in Monmouth County, NJ and lived in Freehold. In the spring of 1776, he joined in a company of over 70 inhabitants, mostly Loyalists, at Freehold, with the declared intention of opposing the British Army - a device adopted to avoid being called out in the American militia. He was a Captain in the NJ Volunteers 7-15-1776. In 1779 he attempted to raise men for the British, but failed. He moved to Parraborough, Nova Scotia. His confiscated property sold for 3,780 pounds". Of his descendants, nothing is known. [Note]


56. ELIAS bp. 9-6-1747 at Marlboro, m. Rebecca Hart, 6-6-1779, d. intestate 4-10-1788. He is listed as a Captain in the 8th Co., later the 7th Co., NJ Continental Line (Misc.14:83). There is an interesting file about this man in the A.G.O., Old Records Section, Washington, DC (#2504). His widow remaried to William White who d. 11--16-1825. On 7-14-1837, Rebecca filed claim for a pension as the relict of a soldier of the Revolution. From the affidavit we learn that Elias was appointed a captain by joint resolution of the NJ Legislature on 11-29-1776; that his residence then was Colts Neck, NJ, where he and Levi Hart (Rebecca's father) operated a grocery store; that Elias was active in recruiting men for the lst Bn of the lst Reg. commanded by Col. Mathews Ogden; that the regiment marched to Canada with Gen. Montgomery, where Elias was taken prisoner, later to be paroled home in 1780. He was never exchanged and hence held no further commissioned office. (Channing III, 242) The file includes several affidavits by neighbors attesting to the fact that Elias did, however, continue his patriotic service by becoming a private in a sort of home-guard which had several brushes with the Tories and with small detachments of the Red-Coats, and that in one of these engagements, near Manasquan, Elias was wounded. The purpose of the affidavits was to prove that Elias served his country until the end of the war. The Commissioner of Pensions was hesitant to award a pension to Rebecca, because Elias was a paroled officer and hence technically should not have continued in any hostilities.

Rebecca d. 8-15-1838 before the pension matter was settled and the claim was renewed by her dau. Ann, 1-21-1843, and she did secure an award of $480 per annum. In her deposition, REbecca stated that she witnessed the Battle of Monmouth from horse-back atop a nearby hill.

The children of Elias are named as Ann and Catherine. In the A.G.O. file, we learn that Catherine d. "some 15 years' before the date of Ann's claim (1843). Ann m. William W. Foster. One document stated that Elias "was a very smart man - he was expelled from college for skating on the roof of the college". From another affidavit we learn that Elias became "very intemperate before his decease".

Among many papers in this interesting file are copies of letters of administration granted to Rebecca and Hendrick Vorhees dated 5-10-1788. See also Inv. Bk A, p.95. (Misc.10:372) has a list of Monmouth County "Associates" which includes the names of John, Elias, and Peter Longstreet. The children of Elias and Rebecca were:

61. RICHARD A private in Capt. McMakion's company in the Revolution and reported killed in action near Morristown, NJ (FH 8. p. 69). But Strycker (Misc. 14) lists no such private. (See previously #44 that this may be the Richard of Sussex of #227S).
62. AARON m Anna van Dyke who was b. 9-11-1763. This is probably the Aaron who was a first Lieut . in Capt. Houston's companhy of the NJ Militia (Misc. 14, p. 438). The only child of record is:

Richard had 16 children by his first wife. In the "Journal" of Bishop Francis J. Asbury (VIII, p. 305) is this entry:
I set out for Squan River. My host there, Derrick Longstreet, has been married for 24 years; his wife once had twins and she made him the father of 16 children, all of whom are alive and well.

By his second wife Richard (Derrick) had seven more children. His will (Bk G. p.109) signed 6-4-1853, lists the children named below and then living (marked with an asterisk *). The other names are from (LH6).

68. SAMUEL. This is the Samuel R. of Monmouth County Orphan's Court proceedings of 1837 (OC-I, p.434, dated 10-18-1837) In the division of his property among his children, Samuel is identified as of 'Squan and as a son of Richard. The land is located on Curtis Cove and along the Robert Swamp Brook. The wife of Samuel R. is probably Annet Allen (Marr. Bk. A, p. 38, 6-11-1799) The order of birth of the children is based on the listing found in the OC files. In Atlantic View Cem., Manasquan, NJ, is cem. inscr. "Anna, wife of Samuel" d. 9-14-1858, aged 76.3.11".(S30.65)

159. Stephen (deceased as of 1837)
160. Mary Ann (wife of William J. Johnson, as in the OC-I file supra)

March 1823, and probably is the David Longstreet bur. there. A Robert McChesney and son owned a pew in Old Tennent in 1755. The Family Bible is owned by Miss Florence E. Longstreet, Hempstead, L.I. and lists these children:
162. Robert b. 2-29-1799 (sic)
163. Catherine
164. Derrick
165. Prudence

70. WILLIAM. This is the William G. who d. intestate in Manasquan, NJ, 1829. He m. Deborah Kinney 7-4-1804, both of Howell Tp (Mar Bk A 78). No tombstone has been located for William G. but that of his wife is in Manasquan and reads: "d. 4-27-1864, aged 76.3.21". Letters of administration were granted to her 1-28-1829 (Bk H, p.322). The Orphans' Court records (Bk H, p.363, 419ff) the division of the estate, together with a map showing shares allotted to each of his children on 'Squan River and "Longstreet's Creek". William's father (Richard) gave William a portion of "the farm where I live south of the creek..." Miss Ethleen Longstreet of Manasquan preserved some papers relating to this transsaction; one is a receipt which reads:

Received of Deborah Longstreet, guardian of Elizabeth Longstreet, Taber Longstreet, Carhart Longstreet and William Longstreet, ten dollars in full for the amount of monies charged in their several lots of land to make up the deficiencies of the debts due from the estate of Richard Longstreet, deceased, from whom their lands descended. August 1, 1835, Taber Chadwick, Richard Longstreet, executors.

91. ELIZABETH (Betsy) m. __________ Rule. She was living in 1851 (See AGQ file supra). The following letter from Mrs. R.A. Gallaher of Lebanon, Ohio, dated 3-4-1912, established identification of this branch of the family, by the ref. to "Aunt Betsy Rule":
I am sorry to tell you that I know very little about my maternal grandfather and mother, Aaron Longstreet and Mary Higgins. They came from New Jersey in the year 1815 with six children. Two, John, b. in 1800, and James, b. in 1812, having died in New Jersey. My mother was b. in 1816, a younger sister in 1820. My grandparents returned to New Jersey in 1821 for a visit. They drove through and were gone less than two months. They never made another visit. They were quite old when I was born so I never heard them say very much about their relations. Aaron Longstreet was born 3-3-1775. I do not know his father's name; his mother's maiden name was Ann Wetherly. He had a sister they called Aunt Betsy Rule and another sister and brother who lived to be old. An aunt who was a young lady when they came to Ohio married a man from New Jersey by the name of Abram Simpson. They visited Aunt Betsie and her brother and some relatives in New York City. The family have all passed away so I have no means of finding out. My grandfather died 7-7-1858. My grandmother died 3-20-1862 aged 84 years.

93. AARON b. 3-3-1775, m. Mary Higgins, d. 7-7-1858 (See letter quoted in #91). He moved to Ohio (Turtle Creek Tp) in 1815, from New Jersey. His wife d. 3-20-1862, aged 84. She was dau of Samuel Higgins of Somerset County, NJ (FH 15,p.212). From the Family Bible, Miss Jeannette Niederlander of Middletown, Ohio, lists eight children; Walter F. Twiss, 5001 8th Ave., NE, Seattle, Washington, adds a daughter Mary. Estate settlement of Aaron is recorded in Warren County, Ohio (G-153,p.280), dated 8-21-1862. The Inventory is in Vol. 15, p. 454. The estate consisted of 418.52 acres of farm, bought at sheriff's sale for $25,100.00 recorded 3-11-1864. His residence was in or near Amanda where he was a member of the Methodist Chrch. The estate was partinioned to George Longstreet, Rebecca Gallaher, Ann Hall, Mary Burntrager and Euphenia Simpson. See Butler County (Ohio) History, pp.643-4.

It seems probable that will in WB-B,p.308 Middlesex County, NJ dated 5-10-1839 belongs to this Samuel. The will names wife as "Elizabeth" and therefore, if it be the testament of #95 Sssamuel, she was a second wife. The will also names son Aaron, dau. Elizabeth, and son Samuel a minor.

102. CORNELIUS b. probably in South Brunswick Tp, NJ in 1777 (cem.inscr. Oakwood Cem. Syracuse, NY), m. 9-9-1804 Deborah Wemple Tyler, dau. Comfort Tyler and Deborah Wemple of Onondaga County, NY, d. 12-17-1814. Deborah d. 9-24-1826. Cornellius' father James d. when Cornelius was 8 years old; his uncle Cornelius Ten Broeck of Harlingen, NJ became his guardian and apparently the Ten Broecks rather than the Longstreets became his mentors. His uncle Peter Ten Broeck was a surveyor on the NY frontier and became an early settler in Onondaga County, NY. (NYG&BR 16:153). This probably accounts for young Cornelius leaving his ancestral home in New Jersey and going to the new country where hils uncle was. Cornelius appeared in Onondaga in 1802 and opened a store there. Soon he married the daughter of one of the founders of Syracuse, i.e. Deborah Tyler. In later lyears, one of Cornelius' sons (Cornelius Tyler Longstreet) gave the following information to the author of (LH15):
About the year 1802 Cornelius Longstreet came to Onondaga West Hill and opened a general store. He was among the first who sold goods oin this county. In 1805 he married Deborah, daughter of Comfort Tyler....He d. in 1814, leaving a large propertly for those times, wlic, however, through the mismanagement of his execlultors, was nearly lost to the family except for their use for a few years.
Cornelius was one of the 22 trustees who organized the Onondaga Academy (LH18,p.129) His will (Bk.B,p.128) dated 11-24-1814, was written in his 37th year, reads in part as follows:
I, Cornelius Longstreet, of the town and county of Onondage in the State of New York, do make and ordain and publish this my last will and testament as follows: First, I give and bequeath unto my wife Deborah, her heirs and assigns 20 acres in a square form to be taken off the S.E. corner of lot #120 in the Reservation aforesaid, bounded...... And I do also give unto the said Deborah all her wearing apparel and such household furniture as I now possess as may be deemed necessary for the convenience of the said Deborah and family in case she should choose to keep house, and I also give and bequeath to the said Deborah the barn now standing on lot #120 aforesaid.... I also constitute and appoint Job Tyler of Marcellus, John Van Pelt of Onondage executors of this my last will and testament..... and to pay over annually unto the Saidorah during her lifetime and on her personal applications the sum of $140.00 and also appropriate such sums for the maintenance and education of my children as shell be necessary and they deem expedient.
The children are not named in the will, but their names and dates of birth were secured in 1912 from Cornelius' great grand-daughter, Mrs. Sarah L. Tolman of Syracuse. These data may also be found in (FH12,I,p.395), and in the public library of Syracuse.

It was not until 1945 that it was possible to identify whith certainty this Onondage County Cornelius with the son Cornelilus of #45 James. The relation was only a well-founded deduction until the discovery in 1945 of two letters in the C.T.Longstreet file in the Onondaga Historical Association. It is a strange coincidence that these letters should have been preserved. The first was addressed to "Cornelius Longstreet of Princeton, or to Samuel Beckman, near Rocky Hill, Somerset County, NJ" and was sent from Cooperstown, NY on 8-23-1800, and was signed "A. Ten Broeck", with the salutation "Dr Nephew". This letter refers to "Bro Peter", covers miscellaneous matters about real estate and taxes, and closes with the sentence, "Please to tell your Uncle Sammy know....

In the possession of R.J.Longstreet, DeLand Florida are a London-made stem-winding watch and two Masonic emblems once owned by Cornelius Longstret. He was a member of Onondaga Chapter R.A.M. in 1807.

(?)....street (NYG&BR16:153). Thus, at long last, we were able to establish the fact that the Cornelius of the old Bergen account (LH20), and which we also copied from Awry's will #8221L, was in reality our own New York great-great-grand-father. The children of Cornelius and Deborah were:

223. James b. 5-24-1806
224. Elizabeth b. 3-9-1808
225. Helen b. 7-15-1810
226. Jane b. 6-6-1812
227. Cornelius Tyler b. 4-18-1814

103. AARON b. 4-11-1780, m. Margaret Beckman (FH4,p.85) (SCHQ3:133) and d. 4-15-1856. Residence, Lamington, Somerset County, NJ. A great-great grandson wrote that "Aaron was the owner of a large farm, and was a tanner by trade. He was a justice of the peace, and later was one of the county judges....and one of the founders of the Somerset Bank" (Letter from John L. Stillwell, Somerille, NJ). A great grand daughter (Miss Martha Hoffman, Whitehouse, NJ) wrote that the father of this #103 Aaron was named James. These are the only authorities for identifying the Somerset Countly Aaron with the son of the Revolutionary soldier of South Brunswick Tp. lHis will (#3562R), proved 4-13-1856) reveals that Aaron was a man of onsiderable means, and also gives the names of his children but we do not have the name of his wife.

115. AUGUSTUS BALDWIN b. 9-22-1790 in Augusta, GA, m. 3-3-1817 Eliza Parks, d. at Oxford, MS, 9-9-1870. A full-length biography of this distinguished member of the family was pub. by the Macmillan Company (author, J.D. Wade) in 1924. An outline of his life is copied here from the Encyclopedia Americana:
He was graduated at Yale College in 1813, began the study of law at Litchfield, Conn., and was admitted to practice in Georgia in 1815. In 1821 he represented the County of Greene in the Legislature, and in 1822 was made a Judge of the Superior Court of Ocmulgee Circuit. Declining reelection to the bench, he returned to the bar and was especially distinguished for his efforts and successes in criminal cases. In 1822 he removed to Augusta, GA., and founded the Sentinel. In 1838, he entered the ministry of the Methodist Church and was president of Emory College. In 1839-48, he was president of Centenary College in Louisiana, and subsequently of the University of Mississippi, but in 1857 he became president of South Carolina College and a few years later resumed his post at the University of Mississippi. His works include Georgia Scenes, a series of broadly humorous sketches, long popular.
His children were:
262. Alfred-Emslely b. 7-20-1820, d. infant
263. Henrietta Augusta b. 12-25-1821
264. Frances Eliza b. Greensboro, Miss. 4-12-1824

122. JOHN LONGSTREET - The identity of this John rests upon a statement by Ellis (LH 12:828) in the sketch of John S. Longstreet who b. 12-5-1815. The Monmouth County historian reported that the grandfather of John S. who m. Williampse Hendricksen was descended from one of the sons of #4 Adrian. This grandfather, wrote Ellis, had a son John who m. Elizaabeth Stoutenburgh and had children listed below. The JERSEYMAN of Nov. 1904, treats of John, son of Aaron, who m. Elizabeth Stoutenborough and gives list of children similar to that of Ellis. The will of Elizabeth Longstreet (Mon. Co. Will Bk E, p. 234, dated 9-9-1871) also agrees in the names of the children. Putting these data together, we identify #122 John as herein presented. He d. intestate in 1847. Mon. Co. Mar. Bk A, p. 144 lists his marriage to Elizabeth Stoutenburrow on 5-26-1812 at Marlboro. Order of birth of children is conjectual.

129. AARON LONGSTREET, F67 b. 1788. Original records have not yet been found to determine with certainty the identitly of this Aaron, but he is placed here on the basis of such data as James Aaron Lonstgreet, 5034 Greene St., Germantown, Phila, Pa. could give in 1913. He understood that he was the greatgrandson of the #67 Richard, famouos as father of 25 childrenk, of Manasquan, NJ. He said that his grandfather Aaron d. "in his twenties', leaving one son named Morford; that the widow then re-married to "a Mr. Gifford" and that after some misunderstanding concerning the inheritance, Jamrews Morfosrd went to Nashvile, sTenn., "to live with relatives", and that later he came to know General Longstreet "very well". In the April term of sthe Orphans' Court in Monmouth County, 1834 (oc-I,p.98;see also LA-B,p.10), is information corroborating this statement of James A. of Philadelphia. In this county record we read that William M. Gifford was guardian of James A. Longstreet (a minor under the age of 14), appointed as such 4-26-1834. The marriage of this Aaron #129 may be the one in Mon. Co. Mar. Bk. A, p.162 to Deborah Hulet on 5-16-1813 or perhaps to Mary Morton, in Mar, Bk B, p. 192 on 6-26-1826.

223. JAMES LONGSTREET - James was born 5-24-1806 in Onondaga, NY, m. 12-31-1829 Lauara Breed, daughter of Henry Breed and Eleanor Fish who came to Onondaga from Connecticut; James d. in Onondaga Valley, NY 5-22-1873. The writer knows very little about this great-grandfather, other than what is found in the obituary pasted in the Family Bible (which James began and which is now (1960) in the possession of the writer). The obituary states that James was a member of the Methodist Church for fifty years. "Every office that came to the laity he held. He was a class leader for more than 30 years". He held the elective office of County superintendent of the poor on Onondaga County for 13 years. He was elected a member of the NY Assembly (Legislature) in 1856. We read in ACCOUNTS OF THE ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, 79th Session, 1856, that James Longstreet was then a farmer, was over six feet tall, and considered himself to be of English ancestry (which, on the patenal side, was an error, as we have seen). There is an unverified report that at one time he owned and operated a plaster mill in Onondaga Valley, but the writer has no original data on this. He entered their names of his children in the large Family Bible (10x14x4.5 inches) pub. by Harper and Brothers, 1846.

Longstreet) the following letter:
"I never saw my grandparents on either side...I can give you no information at all in regard (to them) but my father was a noble man, kind and affectionate in his family, and always ready to do a kind act for everyone he came in contact with. He was very religious and devoted to the church and its interests. He was a generous, kind-hearted loving father in every way."
