(Note on the origins of this document which was Supplied by Edward (Deke) KEASBEY to Ronald Rodger CASEBY on 03/03/2000 along with his Handwritten Family Tree Chart of the contents plus recent additions. Deke said in his note that this draft document had been prepared many years before, possibly after 1966, by a professional Genealogist but that the task had never been completed as far as he knew. The writer refers to "The Family Bible" and "Wills" as well as to other book sources such as the work of "Shrouds". Basically, the main sources are original family ones.) EDWARD KEASBEY, first of the Keasbey family in this country, reportedly emigrated from Gloucestershire, England about the year 1694 and settled in the town of New Salem, New Jersey, then part of Fenwick Settlement. The founder of the Salem colony was John Fenwick. In 1675 he sailed on the Griffin. Among the Quaker companions on the Griffin were John Smith, his wife, and Isaac Smart. In 1677 John and Andrew Thompson, each with wife and children, sailed from Ireland in the ship Mary of Dublin. Edward Bradway came with wife and two children in an unnamed ship in 1677. Edward Keasbey brought neither wife, nor children, nor the traditional brother. He was then a young man and had probably become an Elder of the Society of Friends before leaving England and had come to this country in order to avoid religious persecution. Soon after his arrival we find him taking an active part in the affairs and religious meetings of the society. One of the earliest records bearing his name is of a Friends Meeting in 1698 when he subscribed 5 (five pounds) towards the erection of a brick Meeting House (completed in 1701). In 1701 Edward married. Elizabeth, widow of Isaac Smart, daughter of Andrew and. Elizabeth (Marshill) Thompson. Elizabeth was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1666 and came to America with her parents in 1677. In 1683 she married Isaac Smart and they had six children. Her husband Isaac died in 1700, Edward and Elizabeth had four children; Mary, Edward, Matthew and Susannah. Edward Keasbey made his will on August 13, 1712. He gave his son Edward his plantation, his son Matthew 75 (seventy five pounds), his wife to have his plantation until his son Edward was twenty-one. To Hugh Middleton, whom he appointed tutor to his children and overseer of his plantation he left 5 (five pounds). The remainder of his property was to be divided between his wife and son Matthew. There is no mention of his daughters, they must have died before him. Elizabeth, his widow was reported married to Henry Wamsley in 1713. Matthew Keasbey was born in 1706. He married and had four children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and John. Tradition says that he built the old brick house on Broadway which afterwards belonged to Jesse Keasbey. In 1737 Matthew made his will leaving a house and lot to son John at age 20; his wife Sarah to have the benefit thereof; and a lot to daughter Mary when 18. His other two daughters must have died in childhood which was common in those times. Sarah Keasbey, his widow, was reported married to Thomas Rice in 1739. There is no further record of this branch of the family. It is likely they died early. Edward Keasbey was born in 1705. He married Elizabeth Bradway, daughter of William Bradway, in 1725. They had three children; Edward, Mary and Bradway. Edward and his brother Matthew were apparently quite close. In 1729 Edward deeded land he inherited to Matthew. In 1733 he named Matthew as executor of his will and made him heir in case of the death of his sons. There is no wife or daughter mentioned, he must have survived them. Edward divided his estate between his sons Edward and Bradway and provided that the income from the real estate be used for maintaining his sons until of age. Thomas Rice, husband. of the late Matthew's widow Sarah, was named guardian of Edward in 1740. Bradway's Uncle Jonathan was named his guardian in 1744. The inventory of Edward's estate included 452 (four hundred-fifty two pounds), parcel of bricks, one hundred and twenty oxen, seventeen cows, nine yearling, four doe, and thirty sheep and. nineteen acres of wheat. He must have made some considerable money in his short life as there are several deeds of property he bought. He also built on the property a large brick house in which descendants lived for more than a century and which his great-great-grandson Edward rebuilt in 1843. BRADWAY BRANCH. Bradway, son of Edward arid Elizabeth Bradway was born in 1730. In 1757 he sold the land in Salem that he inherited from his father to his brother Edward for 163 (one hundred sixty three pounds). Bradway married Prudence Sayre in 1755. They had two children: Elizabeth and Edward. In 1763 Bradway married Jane Waddington, presumably his first wife died. Bradway and Jane had one child Sarah. In 1782 Bradway made his will leaving his wife Jane 200 (two hundred pounds). To his daughter Elizabeth Sayre he left one hundred pounds. To his three grandchildren 100 (one hundred. Pounds) each when of age. He left land to his daughter Sarah. The will was proved in 1785. An inventory of Bradway's personal estate was set at slightly over 2,000 (two thousand pounds). Sara married John Pancoast from Gloucester county. They lived for a short time on her property that was willed to her by her father. They, however, in a few years sold it to Samuel Pancoast and purchased a farm on the north side of Alloway's Creek. Elizabeth married Samuel Fogg. Edward, son of Bradway and Prudence, was born in 1760. He married Lydia Carll and they had six children: Sarah, Joseph, Prudence, Grace, Elizabeth, and Edward. Edward wrote two wills in 1805. He left his wife three hundred dollars. To his son Joseph he leaves part of his plantation, ten acres of meadow and a horse and steers. To his son Edward, the remainder of his plantation and a tract of woodland. He left land to his four daughters when of age. Lydia Keasbey, widow of Edward died in 1814 leaving her personal estate to her four daughters Prudence Waddington, Sarah, Grace and Elizabeth Keasbey. She left land to son Edward. and a silver watch. Edward Waddington named guardian of Edward until age fourteen. Joseph, son of Edward and Lydia married. Hannah Stretch. Soon after coming of age purchased land in Elinsborough being part of the Norris estate bordering Alloway's Creek. He lived but a short time afterwards dying in 1814 with typhus fever which was prevalent and very mortal about that time. He left a will leaving most of his plantation to his wife Hannah. He left his brother Edward the land willed to him by his father. Joseph's widow Hannah married Andrew Smith within a year. Prudence, daughter of Edward and Lydia married Edward Waddington. In 1815, Sarah married his brother Aaron. Grace married Rueben Dare and Elizabeth youngest daughter of Edward and Lydia married William Plummer. Edward, son of Edward and Lydia, died nine years later in 1823 without a will. included in the inventory of 0a11 the goods and chattles, rights and credits" was the silver watch willed to him by his mother. With Edward's death, the Bradway branch of the Keasbey Family tree terminated. RETURN TO THE TRUNK OF THE TREE Edward Keasbey III, son of Edward Keasbey II and Elizabeth Bradway was born 1726 in Salem and became one of the most prominent men of his time. His name was first on the list of patriots proscribed in the proclamation of 1778 by Colonel Mawhood of the British Expeditionary Force , which was rejected for the patriots by Colonel Hand. Edward served as Representative of Salem and Cumberland counties in the General Assembly from 1763 to 1769.

Tradition says that he was unusually handsome, and that he graduated a physician. His father having a young family by his second wife said that he could do no more for him. Mathew left and settled in one of the West India islands. He left his true love at home, and afterwards he wrote to his brother Anthony that he would be in a certain ship.. The vessel was never heard from after sailing. Thomas Shrouds says that Lewis Quinton married Sarah Grinnell. However another account says he died in childhood. No record. is noted of his marriage nor of a will which supports the latter theory. Phebe was born in 1751. She married twice. Her first husband was William Grinnell who was a lawyer and they settled in Philadelphia. Phebe's second. husband was a man by the name of Craven. She died in 1812 and was buried at Mill Hollow.

A new congregation of Baptists was organized at Mill Hollow midway between Salem and Quinton and a Baptist Meeting House was built at that place. A monument had been erected on the site of the old meeting house in memory of the first persons to sign the church covenant including Edward and. Prudence Keasbey. When Edward died in 1779, he was buried beside his wife Prudence at Mill Hollow. The inscription on his tombstone reads; "O Death thou hast conquered me and by thy darts I'm slain, but through Christ's righteousness I shall rise again".

(Note on the origins of this document which was Supplied by Edward (Deke) KEASBEY to Ronald Rodger CASEBY on 03/03/2000 along with his Handwritten Family Tree Chart of the contents plus recent additions. Deke said in his note that this draft document had been prepared many years before, possibly after 1966, by a professional Genealogist but that the task had never been completed as far as he knew. The writer refers to "The Family Bible" and "Wills" as well as to other book sources such as the work of "Shrouds". Basically, the main sources are original family ones.) EDWARD KEASBEY, first of the Keasbey family in this country, reportedly emigrated from Gloucestershire, England about the year 1694 and settled in the town of New Salem, New Jersey, then part of Fenwick Settlement. The founder of the Salem colony was John Fenwick. In 1675 he sailed on the Griffin. Among the Quaker companions on the Griffin were John Smith, his wife, and Isaac Smart. In 1677 John and Andrew Thompson, each with wife and children, sailed from Ireland in the ship Mary of Dublin. Edward Bradway came with wife and two children in an unnamed ship in 1677. Edward Keasbey brought neither wife, nor children, nor the traditional brother. He was then a young man and had probably become an Elder of the Society of Friends before leaving England and had come to this country in order to avoid religious persecution. Soon after his arrival we find him taking an active part in the affairs and religious meetings of the society. One of the earliest records bearing his name is of a Friends Meeting in 1698 when he subscribed 5 (five pounds) towards the erection of a brick Meeting House (completed in 1701). In 1701 Edward married. Elizabeth, widow of Isaac Smart, daughter of Andrew and. Elizabeth (Marshill) Thompson. Elizabeth was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1666 and came to America with her parents in 1677. In 1683 she married Isaac Smart and they had six children. Her husband Isaac died in 1700, Edward and Elizabeth had four children; Mary, Edward, Matthew and Susannah. Edward Keasbey made his will on August 13, 1712. He gave his son Edward his plantation, his son Matthew 75 (seventy five pounds), his wife to have his plantation until his son Edward was twenty-one. To Hugh Middleton, whom he appointed tutor to his children and overseer of his plantation he left 5 (five pounds). The remainder of his property was to be divided between his wife and son Matthew. There is no mention of his daughters, they must have died before him. Elizabeth, his widow was reported married to Henry Wamsley in 1713. Matthew Keasbey was born in 1706. He married and had four children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and John. Tradition says that he built the old brick house on Broadway which afterwards belonged to Jesse Keasbey. In 1737 Matthew made his will leaving a house and lot to son John at age 20; his wife Sarah to have the benefit thereof; and a lot to daughter Mary when 18. His other two daughters must have died in childhood which was common in those times. Sarah Keasbey, his widow, was reported married to Thomas Rice in 1739. There is no further record of this branch of the family. It is likely they died early. Edward Keasbey was born in 1705. He married Elizabeth Bradway, daughter of William Bradway, in 1725. They had three children; Edward, Mary and Bradway. Edward and his brother Matthew were apparently quite close. In 1729 Edward deeded land he inherited to Matthew. In 1733 he named Matthew as executor of his will and made him heir in case of the death of his sons. There is no wife or daughter mentioned, he must have survived them. Edward divided his estate between his sons Edward and Bradway and provided that the income from the real estate be used for maintaining his sons until of age. Thomas Rice, husband. of the late Matthew's widow Sarah, was named guardian of Edward in 1740. Bradway's Uncle Jonathan was named his guardian in 1744. The inventory of Edward's estate included 452 (four hundred-fifty two pounds), parcel of bricks, one hundred and twenty oxen, seventeen cows, nine yearling, four doe, and thirty sheep and. nineteen acres of wheat. He must have made some considerable money in his short life as there are several deeds of property he bought. He also built on the property a large brick house in which descendants lived for more than a century and which his great-great-grandson Edward rebuilt in 1843. BRADWAY BRANCH. Bradway, son of Edward arid Elizabeth Bradway was born in 1730. In 1757 he sold the land in Salem that he inherited from his father to his brother Edward for 163 (one hundred sixty three pounds). Bradway married Prudence Sayre in 1755. They had two children: Elizabeth and Edward. In 1763 Bradway married Jane Waddington, presumably his first wife died. Bradway and Jane had one child Sarah. In 1782 Bradway made his will leaving his wife Jane 200 (two hundred pounds). To his daughter Elizabeth Sayre he left one hundred pounds. To his three grandchildren 100 (one hundred. Pounds) each when of age. He left land to his daughter Sarah. The will was proved in 1785. An inventory of Bradway's personal estate was set at slightly over 2,000 (two thousand pounds). Sara married John Pancoast from Gloucester county. They lived for a short time on her property that was willed to her by her father. They, however, in a few years sold it to Samuel Pancoast and purchased a farm on the north side of Alloway's Creek. Elizabeth married Samuel Fogg. Edward, son of Bradway and Prudence, was born in 1760. He married Lydia Carll and they had six children: Sarah, Joseph, Prudence, Grace, Elizabeth, and Edward. Edward wrote two wills in 1805. He left his wife three hundred dollars. To his son Joseph he leaves part of his plantation, ten acres of meadow and a horse and steers. To his son Edward, the remainder of his plantation and a tract of woodland. He left land to his four daughters when of age. Lydia Keasbey, widow of Edward died in 1814 leaving her personal estate to her four daughters Prudence Waddington, Sarah, Grace and Elizabeth Keasbey. She left land to son Edward. and a silver watch. Edward Waddington named guardian of Edward until age fourteen. Joseph, son of Edward and Lydia married. Hannah Stretch. Soon after coming of age purchased land in Elinsborough being part of the Norris estate bordering Alloway's Creek. He lived but a short time afterwards dying in 1814 with typhus fever which was prevalent and very mortal about that time. He left a will leaving most of his plantation to his wife Hannah. He left his brother Edward the land willed to him by his father. Joseph's widow Hannah married Andrew Smith within a year. Prudence, daughter of Edward and Lydia married Edward Waddington. In 1815, Sarah married his brother Aaron. Grace married Rueben Dare and Elizabeth youngest daughter of Edward and Lydia married William Plummer. Edward, son of Edward and Lydia, died nine years later in 1823 without a will. included in the inventory of 0a11 the goods and chattles, rights and credits" was the silver watch willed to him by his mother. With Edward's death, the Bradway branch of the Keasbey Family tree terminated. RETURN TO THE TRUNK OF THE TREE Edward Keasbey III, son of Edward Keasbey II and Elizabeth Bradway was born 1726 in Salem and became one of the most prominent men of his time. His name was first on the list of patriots proscribed in the proclamation of 1778 by Colonel Mawhood of the British Expeditionary Force , which was rejected for the patriots by Colonel Hand. Edward served as Representative of Salem and Cumberland counties in the General Assembly from 1763 to 1769. He was elected deputy from Salem to the Provincial Congress which met in 1775 in Trenton and he attended its session in 1776 at New Brunswick where the congress adopted a State Constitution for New Jersey and ratified its place in the newly formed Federation of the Colonies. On April 4, 1778 he was appointed Chairman of the Council of Safety and served until the end of the Revolutionary War. He married (first) Prudence, daughter of Edward and Temperance Quinton; (second) Sarah, sister of his first wife. Edward and Prudence had ten children: Edward, Elizabeth, Mathew, Sarah, Lewis Quinton, Phebe, Prudence, Edward, Samuel and Anthony, many of whom died in childhood. Matthew was born 1749. Tradition says that he was unusually handsome, and that he graduated a physician. His father having a young family by his second wife said that he could do no more for him. Mathew left and settled in one of the West India islands. He left his true love at home, and afterwards he wrote to his brother Anthony that he would be in a certain ship.. The vessel was never heard from after sailing. Thomas Shrouds says that Lewis Quinton married Sarah Grinnell. However another account says he died in childhood. No record. is noted of his marriage nor of a will which supports the latter theory. Phebe was born in 1751. She married twice. Her first husband was William Grinnell who was a lawyer and they settled in Philadelphia. Phebe's second. husband was a man by the name of Craven. She died in 1812 and was buried at Mill Hollow.

David Sayre later served as guardian for Temperance when heir father died. Anthony Keasbey was born in 1758. Prudence Keasbey, wife of Edward III died in 1760 and was buried at Mill Hollow. A new congregation of Baptists was organized at Mill Hollow midway between Salem and Quinton and a Baptist Meeting House was built at that place. A monument had been erected on the site of the old meeting house in memory of the first persons to sign the church covenant including Edward and. Prudence Keasbey. When Edward died in 1779, he was buried beside his wife Prudence at Mill Hollow. The inscription on his tombstone reads; "O Death thou hast conquered me and by thy darts I'm slain, but through Christ's righteousness I shall rise again". After the death of Prudence Edward married Sarah Quinton, sister of his first wife, by whom he had six children: Temperance, Delzil, Jesse, Rachel, Kezia, and Jane. Temperance was born 1766. She married Howell Smith and had four children. Howell died in his early thirties. She then married John Smith, a widower with three daughters. They had three sons together.

Jesse and Margaret had two children, John who was shot in a duel in the West Indies (he was a midshipman in the Navy and only nineteen years old at the time of his death), and Ann. One account has her life-span from 1803 to 1884. A tombstone in Salem however lists an Anna Keasbey born 1808 and died 1873. Kezia Keasbey was born 1777. She went to Indiana with her brother Delzil with whom most of her life was spent and died in 1837, five days before him. Rachel was born 1775. She married Leonard Gibbon and had eleven children.

While in China reportedly Dr. Keasbey performed an operation on the son of the Emperor - what modern medicine would amount to appendectomy. In a token of gratitude, the Emperor gave Dr. Keasbey a set of Canton china which is presently on display in the St Johns Episcopal Church in Salem having been donated by Howard Buzby Keasbey, grandson of Dr. Keasbey's brother Matthew.

(Note on the origins of this document which was Supplied by Edward (Deke) KEASBEY to Ronald Rodger CASEBY on 03/03/2000 along with his Handwritten Family Tree Chart of the contents plus recent additions. Deke said in his note that this draft document had been prepared many years before, possibly after 1966, by a professional Genealogist but that the task had never been completed as far as he knew. The writer refers to "The Family Bible" and "Wills" as well as to other book sources such as the work of "Shrouds". Basically, the main sources are original family ones.) EDWARD KEASBEY, first of the Keasbey family in this country, reportedly emigrated from Gloucestershire, England about the year 1694 and settled in the town of New Salem, New Jersey, then part of Fenwick Settlement. The founder of the Salem colony was John Fenwick. In 1675 he sailed on the Griffin. Among the Quaker companions on the Griffin were John Smith, his wife, and Isaac Smart. In 1677 John and Andrew Thompson, each with wife and children, sailed from Ireland in the ship Mary of Dublin. Edward Bradway came with wife and two children in an unnamed ship in 1677. Edward Keasbey brought neither wife, nor children, nor the traditional brother. He was then a young man and had probably become an Elder of the Society of Friends before leaving England and had come to this country in order to avoid religious persecution. Soon after his arrival we find him taking an active part in the affairs and religious meetings of the society. One of the earliest records bearing his name is of a Friends Meeting in 1698 when he subscribed 5 (five pounds) towards the erection of a brick Meeting House (completed in 1701). In 1701 Edward married. Elizabeth, widow of Isaac Smart, daughter of Andrew and. Elizabeth (Marshill) Thompson. Elizabeth was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1666 and came to America with her parents in 1677. In 1683 she married Isaac Smart and they had six children. Her husband Isaac died in 1700, Edward and Elizabeth had four children; Mary, Edward, Matthew and Susannah. Edward Keasbey made his will on August 13, 1712. He gave his son Edward his plantation, his son Matthew 75 (seventy five pounds), his wife to have his plantation until his son Edward was twenty-one. To Hugh Middleton, whom he appointed tutor to his children and overseer of his plantation he left 5 (five pounds). The remainder of his property was to be divided between his wife and son Matthew. There is no mention of his daughters, they must have died before him. Elizabeth, his widow was reported married to Henry Wamsley in 1713. Matthew Keasbey was born in 1706. He married and had four children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and John. Tradition says that he built the old brick house on Broadway which afterwards belonged to Jesse Keasbey. In 1737 Matthew made his will leaving a house and lot to son John at age 20; his wife Sarah to have the benefit thereof; and a lot to daughter Mary when 18. His other two daughters must have died in childhood which was common in those times. Sarah Keasbey, his widow, was reported married to Thomas Rice in 1739. There is no further record of this branch of the family. It is likely they died early. Edward Keasbey was born in 1705. He married Elizabeth Bradway, daughter of William Bradway, in 1725. They had three children; Edward, Mary and Bradway. Edward and his brother Matthew were apparently quite close. In 1729 Edward deeded land he inherited to Matthew. In 1733 he named Matthew as executor of his will and made him heir in case of the death of his sons. There is no wife or daughter mentioned, he must have survived them. Edward divided his estate between his sons Edward and Bradway and provided that the income from the real estate be used for maintaining his sons until of age. Thomas Rice, husband. of the late Matthew's widow Sarah, was named guardian of Edward in 1740. Bradway's Uncle Jonathan was named his guardian in 1744. The inventory of Edward's estate included 452 (four hundred-fifty two pounds), parcel of bricks, one hundred and twenty oxen, seventeen cows, nine yearling, four doe, and thirty sheep and. nineteen acres of wheat. He must have made some considerable money in his short life as there are several deeds of property he bought. He also built on the property a large brick house in which descendants lived for more than a century and which his great-great-grandson Edward rebuilt in 1843. BRADWAY BRANCH. Bradway, son of Edward arid Elizabeth Bradway was born in 1730. In 1757 he sold the land in Salem that he inherited from his father to his brother Edward for 163 (one hundred sixty three pounds). Bradway married Prudence Sayre in 1755. They had two children: Elizabeth and Edward. In 1763 Bradway married Jane Waddington, presumably his first wife died. Bradway and Jane had one child Sarah. In 1782 Bradway made his will leaving his wife Jane 200 (two hundred pounds). To his daughter Elizabeth Sayre he left one hundred pounds. To his three grandchildren 100 (one hundred. Pounds) each when of age. He left land to his daughter Sarah. The will was proved in 1785. An inventory of Bradway's personal estate was set at slightly over 2,000 (two thousand pounds). Sara married John Pancoast from Gloucester county. They lived for a short time on her property that was willed to her by her father. They, however, in a few years sold it to Samuel Pancoast and purchased a farm on the north side of Alloway's Creek. Elizabeth married Samuel Fogg. Edward, son of Bradway and Prudence, was born in 1760. He married Lydia Carll and they had six children: Sarah, Joseph, Prudence, Grace, Elizabeth, and Edward. Edward wrote two wills in 1805. He left his wife three hundred dollars. To his son Joseph he leaves part of his plantation, ten acres of meadow and a horse and steers. To his son Edward, the remainder of his plantation and a tract of woodland. He left land to his four daughters when of age. Lydia Keasbey, widow of Edward died in 1814 leaving her personal estate to her four daughters Prudence Waddington, Sarah, Grace and Elizabeth Keasbey. She left land to son Edward. and a silver watch. Edward Waddington named guardian of Edward until age fourteen. Joseph, son of Edward and Lydia married. Hannah Stretch. Soon after coming of age purchased land in Elinsborough being part of the Norris estate bordering Alloway's Creek. He lived but a short time afterwards dying in 1814 with typhus fever which was prevalent and very mortal about that time. He left a will leaving most of his plantation to his wife Hannah. He left his brother Edward the land willed to him by his father. Joseph's widow Hannah married Andrew Smith within a year. Prudence, daughter of Edward and Lydia married Edward Waddington. In 1815, Sarah married his brother Aaron. Grace married Rueben Dare and Elizabeth youngest daughter of Edward and Lydia married William Plummer. Edward, son of Edward and Lydia, died nine years later in 1823 without a will. included in the inventory of 0a11 the goods and chattles, rights and credits" was the silver watch willed to him by his mother. With Edward's death, the Bradway branch of the Keasbey Family tree terminated. RETURN TO THE TRUNK OF THE TREE Edward Keasbey III, son of Edward Keasbey II and Elizabeth Bradway was born 1726 in Salem and became one of the most prominent men of his time. His name was first on the list of patriots proscribed in the proclamation of 1778 by Colonel Mawhood of the British Expeditionary Force , which was rejected for the patriots by Colonel Hand. Edward served as Representative of Salem and Cumberland counties in the General Assembly from 1763 to 1769. He was elected deputy from Salem to the Provincial Congress which met in 1775 in Trenton and he attended its session in 1776 at New Brunswick where the congress adopted a State Constitution for New Jersey and ratified its place in the newly formed Federation of the Colonies.

Tradition says that he was unusually handsome, and that he graduated a physician. His father having a young family by his second wife said that he could do no more for him. Mathew left and settled in one of the West India islands. He left his true love at home, and afterwards he wrote to his brother Anthony that he would be in a certain ship.. The vessel was never heard from after sailing. Thomas Shrouds says that Lewis Quinton married Sarah Grinnell. However another account says he died in childhood. No record. is noted of his marriage nor of a will which supports the latter theory. Phebe was born in 1751. She married twice. Her first husband was William Grinnell who was a lawyer and they settled in Philadelphia. Phebe's second. husband was a man by the name of Craven. She died in 1812 and was buried at Mill Hollow.

A new congregation of Baptists was organized at Mill Hollow midway between Salem and Quinton and a Baptist Meeting House was built at that place. A monument had been erected on the site of the old meeting house in memory of the first persons to sign the church covenant including Edward and. Prudence Keasbey. When Edward died in 1779, he was buried beside his wife Prudence at Mill Hollow. The inscription on his tombstone reads; "O Death thou hast conquered me and by thy darts I'm slain, but through Christ's righteousness I shall rise again".

In a token of gratitude, the Emperor gave Dr. Keasbey a set of Canton china which is presently on display in the St Johns Episcopal Church in Salem having been donated by Howard Buzby Keasbey, grandson of Dr. Keasbey's brother Matthew.

(Note on the origins of this document which was Supplied by Edward (Deke) KEASBEY to Ronald Rodger CASEBY on 03/03/2000 along with his Handwritten Family Tree Chart of the contents plus recent additions. Deke said in his note that this draft document had been prepared many years before, possibly after 1966, by a professional Genealogist but that the task had never been completed as far as he knew. The writer refers to "The Family Bible" and "Wills" as well as to other book sources such as the work of "Shrouds". Basically, the main sources are original family ones.) EDWARD KEASBEY, first of the Keasbey family in this country, reportedly emigrated from Gloucestershire, England about the year 1694 and settled in the town of New Salem, New Jersey, then part of Fenwick Settlement. The founder of the Salem colony was John Fenwick. In 1675 he sailed on the Griffin. Among the Quaker companions on the Griffin were John Smith, his wife, and Isaac Smart. In 1677 John and Andrew Thompson, each with wife and children, sailed from Ireland in the ship Mary of Dublin. Edward Bradway came with wife and two children in an unnamed ship in 1677. Edward Keasbey brought neither wife, nor children, nor the traditional brother. He was then a young man and had probably become an Elder of the Society of Friends before leaving England and had come to this country in order to avoid religious persecution. Soon after his arrival we find him taking an active part in the affairs and religious meetings of the society. One of the earliest records bearing his name is of a Friends Meeting in 1698 when he subscribed 5 (five pounds) towards the erection of a brick Meeting House (completed in 1701). In 1701 Edward married. Elizabeth, widow of Isaac Smart, daughter of Andrew and. Elizabeth (Marshill) Thompson. Elizabeth was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1666 and came to America with her parents in 1677. In 1683 she married Isaac Smart and they had six children. Her husband Isaac died in 1700, Edward and Elizabeth had four children; Mary, Edward, Matthew and Susannah. Edward Keasbey made his will on August 13, 1712. He gave his son Edward his plantation, his son Matthew 75 (seventy five pounds), his wife to have his plantation until his son Edward was twenty-one. To Hugh Middleton, whom he appointed tutor to his children and overseer of his plantation he left 5 (five pounds). The remainder of his property was to be divided between his wife and son Matthew. There is no mention of his daughters, they must have died before him. Elizabeth, his widow was reported married to Henry Wamsley in 1713. Matthew Keasbey was born in 1706. He married and had four children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and John. Tradition says that he built the old brick house on Broadway which afterwards belonged to Jesse Keasbey. In 1737 Matthew made his will leaving a house and lot to son John at age 20; his wife Sarah to have the benefit thereof; and a lot to daughter Mary when 18. His other two daughters must have died in childhood which was common in those times. Sarah Keasbey, his widow, was reported married to Thomas Rice in 1739. There is no further record of this branch of the family. It is likely they died early. Edward Keasbey was born in 1705. He married Elizabeth Bradway, daughter of William Bradway, in 1725. They had three children; Edward, Mary and Bradway. Edward and his brother Matthew were apparently quite close. In 1729 Edward deeded land he inherited to Matthew. In 1733 he named Matthew as executor of his will and made him heir in case of the death of his sons. There is no wife or daughter mentioned, he must have survived them. Edward divided his estate between his sons Edward and Bradway and provided that the income from the real estate be used for maintaining his sons until of age. Thomas Rice, husband. of the late Matthew's widow Sarah, was named guardian of Edward in 1740. Bradway's Uncle Jonathan was named his guardian in 1744. The inventory of Edward's estate included 452 (four hundred-fifty two pounds), parcel of bricks, one hundred and twenty oxen, seventeen cows, nine yearling, four doe, and thirty sheep and. nineteen acres of wheat. He must have made some considerable money in his short life as there are several deeds of property he bought. He also built on the property a large brick house in which descendants lived for more than a century and which his great-great-grandson Edward rebuilt in 1843. BRADWAY BRANCH. Bradway, son of Edward arid Elizabeth Bradway was born in 1730. In 1757 he sold the land in Salem that he inherited from his father to his brother Edward for 163 (one hundred sixty three pounds). Bradway married Prudence Sayre in 1755. They had two children: Elizabeth and Edward. In 1763 Bradway married Jane Waddington, presumably his first wife died. Bradway and Jane had one child Sarah. In 1782 Bradway made his will leaving his wife Jane 200 (two hundred pounds). To his daughter Elizabeth Sayre he left one hundred pounds. To his three grandchildren 100 (one hundred. Pounds) each when of age. He left land to his daughter Sarah. The will was proved in 1785. An inventory of Bradway's personal estate was set at slightly over 2,000 (two thousand pounds). Sara married John Pancoast from Gloucester county. They lived for a short time on her property that was willed to her by her father. They, however, in a few years sold it to Samuel Pancoast and purchased a farm on the north side of Alloway's Creek. Elizabeth married Samuel Fogg. Edward, son of Bradway and Prudence, was born in 1760. He married Lydia Carll and they had six children: Sarah, Joseph, Prudence, Grace, Elizabeth, and Edward. Edward wrote two wills in 1805. He left his wife three hundred dollars. To his son Joseph he leaves part of his plantation, ten acres of meadow and a horse and steers. To his son Edward, the remainder of his plantation and a tract of woodland. He left land to his four daughters when of age. Lydia Keasbey, widow of Edward died in 1814 leaving her personal estate to her four daughters Prudence Waddington, Sarah, Grace and Elizabeth Keasbey. She left land to son Edward. and a silver watch. Edward Waddington named guardian of Edward until age fourteen. Joseph, son of Edward and Lydia married. Hannah Stretch. Soon after coming of age purchased land in Elinsborough being part of the Norris estate bordering Alloway's Creek. He lived but a short time afterwards dying in 1814 with typhus fever which was prevalent and very mortal about that time. He left a will leaving most of his plantation to his wife Hannah. He left his brother Edward the land willed to him by his father. Joseph's widow Hannah married Andrew Smith within a year. Prudence, daughter of Edward and Lydia married Edward Waddington. In 1815, Sarah married his brother Aaron. Grace married Rueben Dare and Elizabeth youngest daughter of Edward and Lydia married William Plummer. Edward, son of Edward and Lydia, died nine years later in 1823 without a will. included in the inventory of 0a11 the goods and chattles, rights and credits" was the silver watch willed to him by his mother. With Edward's death, the Bradway branch of the Keasbey Family tree terminated. RETURN TO THE TRUNK OF THE TREE Edward Keasbey III, son of Edward Keasbey II and Elizabeth Bradway was born 1726 in Salem and became one of the most prominent men of his time. His name was first on the list of patriots proscribed in the proclamation of 1778 by Colonel Mawhood of the British Expeditionary Force , which was rejected for the patriots by Colonel Hand. Edward served as Representative of Salem and Cumberland counties in the General Assembly from 1763 to 1769. He was elected deputy from Salem to the Provincial Congress which met in 1775 in Trenton and he attended its session in 1776 at New Brunswick where the congress adopted a State Constitution for New Jersey and ratified its place in the newly formed Federation of the Colonies.

Edward and Prudence had ten children: Edward, Elizabeth, Mathew, Sarah, Lewis Quinton, Phebe, Prudence, Edward, Samuel and Anthony, many of whom died in childhood. Matthew was born 1749. Tradition says that he was unusually handsome, and that he graduated a physician. His father having a young family by his second wife said that he could do no more for him. Mathew left and settled in one of the West India islands. He left his true love at home, and afterwards he wrote to his brother Anthony that he would be in a certain ship.. The vessel was never heard from after sailing. Thomas Shrouds says that Lewis Quinton married Sarah Grinnell. However another account says he died in childhood. No record. is noted of his marriage nor of a will which supports the latter theory. Phebe was born in 1751. She married twice. Her first husband was William Grinnell who was a lawyer and they settled in Philadelphia. Phebe's second. husband was a man by the name of Craven. She died in 1812 and was buried at Mill Hollow.

David Sayre later served as guardian for Temperance when heir father died. Anthony Keasbey was born in 1758. Prudence Keasbey, wife of Edward III died in 1760 and was buried at Mill Hollow. A new congregation of Baptists was organized at Mill Hollow midway between Salem and Quinton and a Baptist Meeting House was built at that place. A monument had been erected on the site of the old meeting house in memory of the first persons to sign the church covenant including Edward and. Prudence Keasbey. When Edward died in 1779, he was buried beside his wife Prudence at Mill Hollow. The inscription on his tombstone reads; "O Death thou hast conquered me and by thy darts I'm slain, but through Christ's righteousness I shall rise again". After the death of Prudence Edward married Sarah Quinton, sister of his first wife, by whom he had six children: Temperance, Delzil, Jesse, Rachel, Kezia, and Jane. Temperance was born 1766.

Jesse and Margaret had two children, John who was shot in a duel in the West Indies (he was a midshipman in the Navy and only nineteen years old at the time of his death), and Ann.

He practiced medicine in Canton working on small pox. In 1817 he took a second voyage to China on the same ship. While in China reportedly Dr. Keasbey performed an operation on the son of the Emperor - what modern medicine would amount to appendectomy. In a token of gratitude, the Emperor gave Dr. Keasbey a set of Canton china which is presently on display in the St Johns Episcopal Church in Salem having been donated by Howard Buzby Keasbey, grandson of Dr. Keasbey's brother Matthew.

EDWARD KEASBEY, first of the Keasbey family in this country, reportedly emigrated from Gloucestershire, England about the year 1694 and settled in the town of New Salem, New Jersey, then part of Fenwick Settlement. The founder of the Salem colony was John Fenwick. In 1675 he sailed on the Griffin. Among the Quaker companions on the Griffin were John Smith, his wife, and Isaac Smart. In 1677 John and Andrew Thompson, each with wife and children, sailed from Ireland in the ship Mary of Dublin. Edward Bradway came with wife and two children in an unnamed ship in 1677. Edward Keasbey brought neither wife, nor children, nor the traditional brother. He was then a young man and had probably become an Elder of the Society of Friends before leaving England and had come to this country in order to avoid religious persecution. Soon after his arrival we find him taking an active part in the affairs and religious meetings of the society. One of the earliest records bearing his name is of a Friends Meeting in 1698 when he subscribed 5 (five pounds) towards the erection of a brick Meeting House (completed in 1701). In 1701 Edward married. Elizabeth, widow of Isaac Smart, daughter of Andrew and. Elizabeth (Marshill) Thompson. Elizabeth was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1666 and came to America with her parents in 1677. In 1683 she married Isaac Smart and they had six children. Her husband Isaac died in 1700, Edward and Elizabeth had four children; Mary, Edward, Matthew and Susannah. Edward Keasbey made his will on August 13, 1712. He gave his son Edward his plantation, his son Matthew 75 (seventy five pounds), his wife to have his plantation until his son Edward was twenty-one. To Hugh Middleton, whom he appointed tutor to his children and overseer of his plantation he left 5 (five pounds). The remainder of his property was to be divided between his wife and son Matthew. There is no mention of his daughters, they must have died before him. Elizabeth, his widow was reported married to Henry Wamsley in 1713. Matthew Keasbey was born in 1706. He married and had four children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and John. Tradition says that he built the old brick house on Broadway which afterwards belonged to Jesse Keasbey. In 1737 Matthew made his will leaving a house and lot to son John at age 20; his wife Sarah to have the benefit thereof; and a lot to daughter Mary when 18. His other two daughters must have died in childhood which was common in those times. Sarah Keasbey, his widow, was reported married to Thomas Rice in 1739. There is no further record of this branch of the family. It is likely they died early. Edward Keasbey was born in 1705. He married Elizabeth Bradway, daughter of William Bradway, in 1725. They had three children; Edward, Mary and Bradway. Edward and his brother Matthew were apparently quite close. In 1729 Edward deeded land he inherited to Matthew. In 1733 he named Matthew as executor of his will and made him heir in case of the death of his sons. There is no wife or daughter mentioned, he must have survived them. Edward divided his estate between his sons Edward and Bradway and provided that the income from the real estate be used for maintaining his sons until of age. Thomas Rice, husband. of the late Matthew's widow Sarah, was named guardian of Edward in 1740. Bradway's Uncle Jonathan was named his guardian in 1744. The inventory of Edward's estate included 452 (four hundred-fifty two pounds), parcel of bricks, one hundred and twenty oxen, seventeen cows, nine yearling, four doe, and thirty sheep and. nineteen acres of wheat. He must have made some considerable money in his short life as there are several deeds of property he bought. He also built on the property a large brick house in which descendants lived for more than a century and which his great-great-grandson Edward rebuilt in 1843. BRADWAY BRANCH. Bradway, son of Edward arid Elizabeth Bradway was born in 1730. In 1757 he sold the land in Salem that he inherited from his father to his brother Edward for 163 (one hundred sixty three pounds). Bradway married Prudence Sayre in 1755. They had two children: Elizabeth and Edward. In 1763 Bradway married Jane Waddington, presumably his first wife died. Bradway and Jane had one child Sarah. In 1782 Bradway made his will leaving his wife Jane 200 (two hundred pounds). To his daughter Elizabeth Sayre he left one hundred pounds. To his three grandchildren 100 (one hundred. Pounds) each when of age. He left land to his daughter Sarah. The will was proved in 1785. An inventory of Bradway's personal estate was set at slightly over 2,000 (two thousand pounds). Sara married John Pancoast from Gloucester county. They lived for a short time on her property that was willed to her by her father. They, however, in a few years sold it to Samuel Pancoast and purchased a farm on the north side of Alloway's Creek. Elizabeth married Samuel Fogg. Edward, son of Bradway and Prudence, was born in 1760. He married Lydia Carll and they had six children: Sarah, Joseph, Prudence, Grace, Elizabeth, and Edward. Edward wrote two wills in 1805. He left his wife three hundred dollars. To his son Joseph he leaves part of his plantation, ten acres of meadow and a horse and steers. To his son Edward, the remainder of his plantation and a tract of woodland. He left land to his four daughters when of age. Lydia Keasbey, widow of Edward died in 1814 leaving her personal estate to her four daughters Prudence Waddington, Sarah, Grace and Elizabeth Keasbey. She left land to son Edward. and a silver watch. Edward Waddington named guardian of Edward until age fourteen. Joseph, son of Edward and Lydia married. Hannah Stretch. Soon after coming of age purchased land in Elinsborough being part of the Norris estate bordering Alloway's Creek. He lived but a short time afterwards dying in 1814 with typhus fever which was prevalent and very mortal about that time. He left a will leaving most of his plantation to his wife Hannah. He left his brother Edward the land willed to him by his father. Joseph's widow Hannah married Andrew Smith within a year. Prudence, daughter of Edward and Lydia married Edward Waddington. In 1815, Sarah married his brother Aaron. Grace married Rueben Dare and Elizabeth youngest daughter of Edward and Lydia married William Plummer. Edward, son of Edward and Lydia, died nine years later in 1823 without a will. included in the inventory of 0a11 the goods and chattles, rights and credits" was the silver watch willed to him by his mother. With Edward's death, the Bradway branch of the Keasbey Family tree terminated. RETURN TO THE TRUNK OF THE TREE Edward Keasbey III, son of Edward Keasbey II and Elizabeth Bradway was born 1726 in Salem and became one of the most prominent men of his time. His name was first on the list of patriots proscribed in the proclamation of 1778 by Colonel Mawhood of the British Expeditionary Force , which was rejected for the patriots by Colonel Hand. Edward served as Representative of Salem and Cumberland counties in the General Assembly from 1763 to 1769. He was elected deputy from Salem to the Provincial Congress which met in 1775 in Trenton and he attended its session in 1776 at New Brunswick where the congress adopted a State Constitution for New Jersey and ratified its place in the newly formed Federation of the Colonies.

Edward and Prudence had ten children: Edward, Elizabeth, Mathew, Sarah, Lewis Quinton, Phebe, Prudence, Edward, Samuel and Anthony, many of whom died in childhood. Matthew was born 1749. Tradition says that he was unusually handsome, and that he graduated a physician. His father having a young family by his second wife said that he could do no more for him. Mathew left and settled in one of the West India islands. He left his true love at home, and afterwards he wrote to his brother Anthony that he would be in a certain ship.. The vessel was never heard from after sailing. Thomas Shrouds says that Lewis Quinton married Sarah Grinnell. However another account says he died in childhood. No record. is noted of his marriage nor of a will which supports the latter theory. Phebe was born in 1751. She married twice. Her first husband was William Grinnell who was a lawyer and they settled in Philadelphia. Phebe's second. husband was a man by the name of Craven. She died in 1812 and was buried at Mill Hollow.

A new congregation of Baptists was organized at Mill Hollow midway between Salem and Quinton and a Baptist Meeting House was built at that place. A monument had been erected on the site of the old meeting house in memory of the first persons to sign the church covenant including Edward and. Prudence Keasbey. When Edward died in 1779, he was buried beside his wife Prudence at Mill Hollow. The inscription on his tombstone reads; "O Death thou hast conquered me and by thy darts I'm slain, but through Christ's righteousness I shall rise again". After the death of Prudence Edward married Sarah Quinton, sister of his first wife, by whom he had six children: Temperance, Delzil, Jesse, Rachel, Kezia, and Jane. Temperance was born 1766.

Jesse and Margaret had two children, John who was shot in a duel in the West Indies (he was a midshipman in the Navy and only nineteen years old at the time of his death), and Ann. One account has her life-span from 1803 to 1884. A tombstone in Salem however lists an Anna Keasbey born 1808 and died 1873. Kezia Keasbey was born 1777. She went to Indiana with her brother Delzil with whom most of her life was spent and died in 1837, five days before him. Rachel was born 1775. She married Leonard Gibbon and had eleven children.

He practiced medicine in Canton working on small pox. In 1817 he took a second voyage to China on the same ship. While in China reportedly Dr. Keasbey performed an operation on the son of the Emperor - what modern medicine would amount to appendectomy. In a token of gratitude, the Emperor gave Dr. Keasbey a set of Canton china which is presently on display in the St Johns Episcopal Church in Salem having been donated by Howard Buzby Keasbey, grandson of Dr. Keasbey's brother Matthew. Dr. Keasbey was a physician not only eminent in his profession but so versed in every department of' human knowledge that he was deemed quite worthy of a seat upon the bench and was accordingly appointed a.

Mattison, a fellow student, and the friendship was to prove remarkably fruitful. Henry was rewarded, on graduation, with a trip to New Orleans on one of the picturesque Mississippi riverboats of that era. He was deeply affected by seeing the poverty and broken health afflicting the South, the results of malaria. He resolved to seek means with which to combat the disease. Returning to Philadelphia, he persuaded his college friend Dr. Mattison to join him in efforts to perfect quinine compounds.

In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn.

(Note on the origins of this document which was Supplied by Edward (Deke) KEASBEY to Ronald Rodger CASEBY on 03/03/2000 along with his Handwritten Family Tree Chart of the contents plus recent additions. Deke said in his note that this draft document had been prepared many years before, possibly after 1966, by a professional Genealogist but that the task had never been completed as far as he knew. The writer refers to "The Family Bible" and "Wills" as well as to other book sources such as the work of "Shrouds". Basically, the main sources are original family ones.) EDWARD KEASBEY, first of the Keasbey family in this country, reportedly emigrated from Gloucestershire, England about the year 1694 and settled in the town of New Salem, New Jersey, then part of Fenwick Settlement. The founder of the Salem colony was John Fenwick. In 1675 he sailed on the Griffin. Among the Quaker companions on the Griffin were John Smith, his wife, and Isaac Smart. In 1677 John and Andrew Thompson, each with wife and children, sailed from Ireland in the ship Mary of Dublin. Edward Bradway came with wife and two children in an unnamed ship in 1677. Edward Keasbey brought neither wife, nor children, nor the traditional brother. He was then a young man and had probably become an Elder of the Society of Friends before leaving England and had come to this country in order to avoid religious persecution. Soon after his arrival we find him taking an active part in the affairs and religious meetings of the society. One of the earliest records bearing his name is of a Friends Meeting in 1698 when he subscribed 5 (five pounds) towards the erection of a brick Meeting House (completed in 1701). In 1701 Edward married. Elizabeth, widow of Isaac Smart, daughter of Andrew and. Elizabeth (Marshill) Thompson. Elizabeth was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1666 and came to America with her parents in 1677. In 1683 she married Isaac Smart and they had six children. Her husband Isaac died in 1700, Edward and Elizabeth had four children; Mary, Edward, Matthew and Susannah. Edward Keasbey made his will on August 13, 1712. He gave his son Edward his plantation, his son Matthew 75 (seventy five pounds), his wife to have his plantation until his son Edward was twenty-one. To Hugh Middleton, whom he appointed tutor to his children and overseer of his plantation he left 5 (five pounds). The remainder of his property was to be divided between his wife and son Matthew. There is no mention of his daughters, they must have died before him. Elizabeth, his widow was reported married to Henry Wamsley in 1713. Matthew Keasbey was born in 1706. He married and had four children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and John. Tradition says that he built the old brick house on Broadway which afterwards belonged to Jesse Keasbey. In 1737 Matthew made his will leaving a house and lot to son John at age 20; his wife Sarah to have the benefit thereof; and a lot to daughter Mary when 18. His other two daughters must have died in childhood which was common in those times. Sarah Keasbey, his widow, was reported married to Thomas Rice in 1739. There is no further record of this branch of the family. It is likely they died early. Edward Keasbey was born in 1705. He married Elizabeth Bradway, daughter of William Bradway, in 1725. They had three children; Edward, Mary and Bradway. Edward and his brother Matthew were apparently quite close. In 1729 Edward deeded land he inherited to Matthew. In 1733 he named Matthew as executor of his will and made him heir in case of the death of his sons. There is no wife or daughter mentioned, he must have survived them. Edward divided his estate between his sons Edward and Bradway and provided that the income from the real estate be used for maintaining his sons until of age. Thomas Rice, husband. of the late Matthew's widow Sarah, was named guardian of Edward in 1740. Bradway's Uncle Jonathan was named his guardian in 1744. The inventory of Edward's estate included 452 (four hundred-fifty two pounds), parcel of bricks, one hundred and twenty oxen, seventeen cows, nine yearling, four doe, and thirty sheep and. nineteen acres of wheat. He must have made some considerable money in his short life as there are several deeds of property he bought. He also built on the property a large brick house in which descendants lived for more than a century and which his great-great-grandson Edward rebuilt in 1843. BRADWAY BRANCH.
