In 1803, Hannah Jaggers married John Langley in southern NJ, but we don't know if Jaggers was her maiden name or a first husband. It is clear Hannah had at least one prior marriage (or affair), because John's 1839 Will made a gift to "wife's daughter" (not his) Zipporah Jones.
We see a Hannah Langley witnessing the Will of a Nathan Dunham in 1807, though no relationship is stated. She may have been a Dunham herself, because near her grave there is a faded tombstone of a 10 year old Dunham child (died in 1856) named Marian, Mariah or maybe even Hannah. A Jaggers child (age 5 but no dates) is not far away. The surnames Richman, Blew, Gould and Kandle are also close by, if thatís a hint to anyone.
Finally, there are 3 sparse marriage stats that appear to have joined Dunham to Langley (my interest) in or near southern NJ:
1. Mary H. Langley married a Charles M. Downam (Dunham?). The year 1851 and date of Aug. 10,1914 are mentioned, but it's unclear if these are birth, marriage or death dates.
2. Ann Maria Langley married Samuel Dunham (both of Gloucester County) on 02/24/1841, by Rev. Wm. Lummis.
3. Even earlier, Unice or Eunice Langley married a Dunham between 1800 and 1815, also in southern NJ.
Possibly, these Dunhams had ties with NYC or NY State.
