Some sources give Gloucester Co as her place of birth. I guess that the daughter Rhoda was born in New Jersey. Her birthdate is 8 apr 1768, married in Burlington county, NJ 1788 and died in Ohio 6 jan 1842. Other than that I only have the names of her parents. Don't know of any other children. They were Quakers. At least Rhoda was a Quaker. Her husband Michael Stratton comes from a line of Quakers. Rhoda and Michael had many children, and I know of one marriage in New Jersey, but they moved to Salem, Columbiana Co., Ohio in 1810 and most of the children are married in Ohio. I have contacted the Alton association years ago in search of Rhoda's parents. They didn't know anything about her. I just got the info of her parents' names a couple of weeks ago from my mother through her only surviving cousin who is now 84 and doesn't know anything more. I hope someone out there can now help me find the connection with their past. I saw on the Internet somewhere that she might have been known as Holton instead. I suppose with the Brittish pronounciation it would be about the same.
