Went to Salem, NJ and Alloways Creek, NJ with Ray today to see if we could find the graves of some of my Quaker ancestors. We didn’t have a lot of luck. The one cemetery we did find didn’t have anyone I was looking for. Probably many of the gravestones were destroyed or sank below ground level. Also, the Quakers didn’t necessarily have grave markers in all cases.
I did find the grave of an “Ann Firth” but I’m not sure how she fits into my tree, if at all.
We *did* come across the Hancock House in Alloways Creek, where my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather Charles Fogg (a “Fighting Quaker”) was killed in a British sneak attack on March 21, 1778.

Ooh the Fighting Quakers! wait…aren’t they into peace? wtf?
Yeah, most of them are…
…the *pussy* ones!
But my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was *hardcore*!
The Fighting Quakers were even part of one of the US invasions of Canada.
