Dear Linda, HOW wonderful to be living in an historic house! I have a photo of the Nathaniel Chambless house in Salem County, New Jersey, built in 1730. I have not done anything much on this line. I do remember that Narhaniel Sr. and wife ( her name refuses to come to the surface right now) , their son Nathaniel, Jr. and their daughter, Elizabeth, were Quakers who came to N. J. aboard the ship THE GRIFFIN, WITH the Fenwick Colony. That their said daughter, Elizabeth married one of the Fenwick family. I shall not go on because I am working from memory... at least 25 years two heart attacks, 5 bypasses and 2 strokes ago. The information on this family came from the Colonial Records of New Jersey and N. J.Genealogical Society records purchased by the University of Oklshoma Library when the university was opening. It was believed that they were History records of the regular kind. I discovered the books and copied everything, then turned the information as to what they were in to the Librarian sp?. Of course they were removed to the safety of the Western History Collection. I cannot go and hold them as I did. Seems they also had Mass., and several other states. I was told that The Nathaniel Chambless House was a museum. guess it isn't. Sincerely,
Mary M. Chambless
