Appleton Family Genealogy Forum
Yes I know of that marriage record. It was transcribed from the original, but I haven't found the original. I believe the transcriptionist just misread the old style writing and assumed the name was James, not Jesse. He appears as Jesse on the 1850 and 1880 census, I also understand he left a will under the name Jesse Appleton, which I have recently ordered a copy of. Also, his daughter, Nancy Eliza Appleton, kept a family bible of her own after her marriage to Martin Peters and she wrote his name as Jesse as well.
I believe he is related to the Appleton family in Mass., but I haven't made the connection yet. I suspect his father was Samuel Appleton of Bucks County, but again, haven't made the connection yet. I've just barely started looking into that though - maybe Samuel left a will or some other document that lists his children's names.
Thanks for your interest though! I really appreciate it.
