There are some interesting sidenotes about some of the people mentioned. For example, Benjamin Borden was a pillar of the community but was involved with the last of a series of riots in courtrooms in the colony of New Jersey. Benjamin's father, Richard, was one of the earliest Quakers in the colonies and was a founding member of the town of Aquidneck which became Portsmouth and later Rhode Island (he arrived in RI in 1638 and in Boston in 1635). It appears that Benjamin may not have been a Quaker but was a Baptist, like his father in law, James Grover (birthdate and birthplace unknown but died about 1685 in Monmouth County, New Jersey in which he was a pioneer (actually a patentee). I have recently placed some background information about James Grover on the Grover family forum. James and Rebecca had the following children: John, James, Abigail, Safety and Hannah, not necessarily in that order. James Grover is a fascinating character. If you want more info, please contact me.
