Mappy Monday - Monmouth, New Jersey
The map below shows Monmouth County, New Jersey in 1879 (from the David Rumsey Map Collection). Monmouth was the home my wife's Havens line before they left New Jersey for Tazewell County, Illinois.
I found the marriage record for her 4th-great-grandparents, Daniel Havens and Margaret Ketcham in the New Jersey marriage records on FamilySearch under Monmouth County. Their marriage was witnessed by William Anderson, Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas & Minister of the Methodist E. Church, on 1 March 1827. A copy of their marriage record is below, and this is where I'll begin with the Havens line.
