Searching for Quakers

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.

Hancock House

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.

    1. 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.
