I've just come back from doing research in Hunterdon County and found this item in The Articles of Egbert T. Bush,* p. 428:
"Peter Gary, son of Peter Gary, came from Scotland and married Betsy Clickenger, who came from Germany" Peter, born Sept 21, 1751. They settled below Croton** in the vicinity of Boarshead Tavern.
I have nothing else on the Gary family; my interest is in the Clickengers. If anyone has anything more on Betsy, please contact me. The name, in its German form, is Glockner, Kleckner, morphing into Clickner, and then Clickenger in NJ.
*I believe this was a notebook with unpublished clippings; in the collection of the Hunterdon County Public Library.
**Croton is near Flemington in Hunterdon Co.
