In Reply to: Place of Birth by James Ewing of 123

James here is some of the info from that link I sent to you.Certainly this tradition is far more plausible than the oft-repeated fable that both Zebulon 1722-1794) and his wife Susannah (Barton) Morford (1727-1812) had been born and married in Wales before coming to New Jersey. Actually, Zebulon's marriage to Susannah, by license dated 12 January 1746, is recorded in Middlesex County (NJMB M:44). An account of the Barton family shows that Susannah was born in New York state, later resided in Cranbury, New Jersey; she was a daughter of Noah and Mary Barton ("Roger Barton of Westchester Co. , N. Y. . . . ," by George E. McCracken, NEHGR 106:297.)
