SOPHER 1800-1821 Essex Co., NJ
Posted by: Dee Alexander Date: July 07, 1998 at 22:32:03
  of 23701

Searching for parents of Jonathan Sopher, b. abt 1800 in NJ per census records. Married 11/3/1821 to Charity Simpson. Marriage record says "Jonathan Sopher of Westfield" and "Charity Simpson of New Providence".

1821 Tax records for Westfield show no Sophers, but does show a "Jonathan Soper".
I am trying to find out if Sopher is a derivation of Soper. Thank you!
