I suspect I don't go far enough back. My material was from the MyArnolds.com site. Stephen Arnold evidently copied it from OneWorldTree.
What I do have are two Daniels and one Jeremiah, maybe.
I have Daniel Gard (1737, Morris Co., NJ -7 Nov. 1787, Morris Co., NJ) m. to Charity Grey (1749 - 22 Sept. 1801, NJ). They had a large number of children, including a Daniel, (1779-1823). I have no record of a marriage for the latter; nor do I have a brother for him named Jeremiah.
For the father and grandfather Gard of Daniel m. to Charity, I have no first names. I do have as a potential son for his grandfather (and thus he would be his uncle) a Jeremiah, but no dates or other information. The uncle, possibly named Jeremiah, and the father were likely born 1700-1720.
I am helping another researcher research the Michael Pearce, son of John and Marta Pearce of Scotch Plains, Essex Co., NJ as they may be related to my Pearces who appear in Sussex Co., NJ in the 1750s-60s. I am reading as much online as I can find. I suspect my Pearces were in Suffolk Co., NJ as many of the founding surnames surround my Pearces in Sussex Co. My family may have come from Rehoboth, Bristol Co., MA.
Hunterdon Co., NJ was carved down producing Morris Co., which was carved down producing Sussex Co. Depending on how early mine arrived, it may have been Morris Co. or even Hunterdon Co., but I suspect Morris. There are persons with whom mine intermarried who reportedly "came" from Hunterdon Co. I now suspect they arrived and were simply "in" Hunterdon Co." at the time. A Benjamin Pierce was there "in an early time," according to Snell.
I have learned that many from Suffolk appear in the area of Mendham Twp., near Morristown in early middle 1700s. One of Michael Pearce's daughters married Rev. Steven Gard, a son of Daniel and Charity. Michael led to the way for many of these families to migrate to far western Ohio in the CT Reserve lands; e.g. Hamilton and Preble Cos. I put my colleague's Michael Pearce family on my tree along with mine (as I do relate to Michael Pearce from another line) so that I could absorb the history through the names and migrations of NJ and LI at that time and better sense how folks were moving around. In the meantime I resaved my Tree, which is public, to Ancestry.com on Nov. 26, 2011 and also saved it to FamilySearch.org again. It now has +5300 individual names.
Sorry I could not help more.
