I too have seen that wedding announcement, but just a partial listing, that didn't include all those names, presumably the wedding party.
But the Barnce R. Hagerman family listed there were not immediate relatives of my James Hagerman and his brother George Hagerman.
At least some of the Barnce R. Hagerman family are buried in the Bethesda Methodist Church Cemetery in Adelphia, which is now part of Howell Township, NJ. That cemetery listing includes Barnce, his wife Eleanor, and various family members.
They were most likely more distant relatives of our James and George.
By way of background, in the late 1700s four Hagermans appeared in Monmouth County. They were Cornelius, Dollance, James and Barent. It is unclear exactly who descends from whom. Although Barent, also known as Barnet, Barnes, Barnce, etc. settled in Dover Township, which is now in Ocean County. This Barent died in 1801 I think. He had children, but I can only place 2 with him, John and William, both remained in Dover Township area. Both these sons had sons they named Barent or Barnes, etc. after their father.
Additionally there was a Barent Hagerman in Monmouth County at this same time, probably the son of the Dollance who came to Monmouth County in the late 1700s.
Our James and George's father was John Hagerman who lived in Monmouth County and who I can trace to about 1814 when he bought land in the Shark River area. I think this John Hagerman descends from James, one of the original four mentioned above. There was also a Johnson Hagerman listed in the 1793 Militia Census, I'm not sure of his relationship, or was he our John?
Unfortunately there are very few records in Monmouth County from 1800 to 1830 to go by.
The 1851 map I referred to is very large and reprints/copies can be obtained from various historical sites, I think I saw a copy at the Allaire State Park, general store. I don't have a copy to send.
Also I assume George died of consumption because he died young, as did his brother James, who died of it. James also lost at least 2 daughters from it, and maybe one of his son's who also died young. During the mid 1800s, some families were considered "consumptive families" since it wss spread so easily among family members.
