(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.

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.

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.

(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.

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 Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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.

(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. Temperance lived to age sixty in 1826 and was buried alongside her mother. Delzil Keasbey was born 1768. He married Rachel Smith who died in 1793 aged twenty three. They had one son, Edward Smith Keasbey. Delzil was a Hatter and followed his trade in Salem for a number of years. His residence was in the ancient brick house situated at the upper end of East Broadway. Delzil sold his property to his brother Anthony and moved to Muncie Indiana where he died in 1837. Jesse Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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.

With their two small children they journeyed by train to the Mississippi River and thence by wagon train across the trackless prairies to Des Moines, Iowa, then a small village of log cabins. Their fourth child was born in Des Moines. In 1860 the young mother died. Edward, concerned for the proper rearing of his children decided to return East. Henry, the eldest son, was taken into the home of his Uncle Anthony in Morristown and continued his education.

Henry Griffiths was born in Salem 1850. After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable. To meet demand for it the firm of Keasbey and Mattison (now in other hands) built a large plant north of Philadelphia. Henry's wife developed Tuberculosis and so he closed out his business interests and moved to Europe. His wife died 1897 in Menton, France. Marguerite Anna was born 1879.

14Rev. I. S. Hankins,1913. Details sent to RRC on 15/04/2000 by Carol Y. Reese, Email: carol@hdyinc.com, "History of Alloways Creek Baptist Church of Mill Hollow" (was written in for the 26/06/1913 unveiling of a monument to the Salem Baptist pioneers.), 15/04/2000, Salem County Historical Society,, Salem, New Jersey, USA. "The cemetery off Salem Quinton Road, about two miles east of Salem on the north side of Route 49, between Salem and Quinton, NJ in the county of Salem, is the Mill Hollow Baptist Church Cemetery. The following information is from a "History of Alloways Creek Baptist Church of Mill Hollow", by Rev. I. S. Hankins. It was written in for the 26 June 1913 celebration of the unveiling of a monument to the Baptist pioneers of Salem buried there and erecting of an iron fence around the grave yard at Mill Hollow. The Mill Hollow Baptist Church was built in 1743 and abandoned in 1790. It was built half-way between Alloways Creek and Salem, an offshoot of the Cohansey Baptist Church. When the Cohansey Church was formed in 1690, its first pastor was Thomas Killingsworth. He lived in Salem and was responsible for creating Baptist sentiment in that part of the county. Baptist meetings began in the homes of the people of the area and were led by Thomas Killingsworth and Judge John Holme. The first recorded regular meeting place, near Salem, of Baptists, and led in worship by Thomas Killingsworth, was at the home of Jeremiah Nickson, in Penn's Neck, in the county of Salem. After the deaths of John Holme and Thomas Killingsworth, the Baptists in this part of the county continued to meet in homes around Elsinboro, Salem and near Alloways Creek and began to feel that they needed their own meeting house as it was too far to travel regularly to Cohansey. Since some members lived on the Salem side, and some near the Alloways Creek, it was decided to build half-way between, so they built at Mill Hollow in 1743 a frame building 22 x 30 (?) with galleries on three sides. Johnson in his history of Salem says that there was a tide mill at this place, which most likely gave it its name, Mill Hollow. Daniel Smith gave the land for the church and grave yard, one quarter of an acre (the deed was not given until 20 June 1748). The Cohansey Church required Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton to give a bond to the Cohansey Church officials in the sum of £100 and it was dated 20 Jun 1748. A Memorandum to the bond states that "as it was forgotten in deed and bond to give the house a name, it is hereby called -- "Bethesday," which, according to Mr. Williams, signifies the House of Effusion or the House of Mercy." The congregation shared monthly communions at the Cohansey Baptist Church until Mill Hollow became an independent Baptist Church on 17 May 1755. Those who signed the church covenant at that time were Rev. Job Sheppard, Catherine Sheppard, Edward Quinton, Temperance Quinton, Edward Keasbey, Prudence Keasbey, Abner Sims, Sarah Sims, John Holme, Daniel Smith, Seth Smith, Samuel Sims, Joseph Sneathen, Sarah Smith, Rachel Sneathen, Keren Happach Blackwood, John Whittall, Phebe Smith, Patience James. It was the first Baptist church in what is now Salem County. In 1786 Thomas Sayer, John Holme, Benjamin Holme and Anthony Keasbey (Esquires) and Samuel Vance, John Briggs, and Howell Smith (Gentlemen), were appointed trustees, in order be incorporated according to law. They changed their first name "Bethesda" to Anti-Pædo Baptist Society of Salem, letting the world know that they were a Church against the practice of infant baptism and only for believers' baptism by immersion. The congregation worshipped at Mill Hollow and buried their dead in the grave yard next to it for 47 years, until they decided it would be advisable to move the church into town of Salem. The building at Mill Hollow was sold and a new brick church was built on Yorke Street 1786-1790. Mrs. Mary Dunlap gave one and a half acres for the church and grave yard in on the condition that the church give yearly one ear on Indian corn, should it be demanded. They worshipped there from 1790 until it too was abandoned on 12 December 1846 when the First Baptist Church of Salem was dedicated on Broadway. (Personal note: The Broadway church and the Baptist graveyard at the Yorke Street property continue to be utilized to this day.) The grave yard at Mill Hollow was one of the oldest in this part of the county, older then Alloway, Canton or the Methodist in Salem, so many more were buried there than the stones indicate as tombstones were scarce in those days. Here are the names of some of the persons known to be buried there: Rev. John Sheppard-first pastor of the church; Edward Quinton (the village of Quinton was named after him); Daniel Smith-he gave the land for the church and graveyard and his father was a prominent man in the Fenwick Colony; Edward Keasbey-a large landholder and prominent citizen; Wade Barker, grandson of Samuel Wade, one of Fenwick's prominent colonists. A small boulder stone under a cedar tree is marked "J.H." which probably means John Holme, reputed to be a surveyor for William Penn who was the father of Col. Benjamin Holme. -----End of information from the historical sketch referenced above. Information from a newspaper article appearing 4 July 1913, describing the 26 June 1913 celebration of the unveiling of the monument and the erection of the iron fence, gives more information about the location of the cemetery. "At the time of the Revolutionary War and before Mill Hollow was on the main road from Salem to Thompson's Bridge (now Alloway), or as it was termed in Colonial days on the King's Highway from Salem to Maurice River, The British soldiers passed down that road. Afterward the present road was laid out (straightening the route considerably) the cemetery was thrown back from the highway and to all appearances became a part of the farm at present occupied by George Lawrence." -----End of information from the newspaper article From "History of the First Baptist Church, Salem, New Jersey", by F. B. LaBarrer, 17 May 1905 this list of ministers of the Mill Hollow Baptist Church appears: Revs. Job Sheppard, 1755 to 1757; John Sutton, 1761; John Blackwell, 1763; Abel Griffith, 1768 to 1775; Peter Vanhorn, 1784 to 1789. -----End of information from this historical sketch by Carol Y. Reese, Salem, New Jersey, USA, 15/04/2000. Email: carol@hdyinc.com I wrote to Carol thanking her for the information and asked for Dates of Death or Burial for those named as interred in the Mill Hollow Cemetery and the following was her reply on 17/04/2000. Ron, I don't have any details you need regarding the Keasbeys and Quintons. I will keep my eyes open to see if I can find some. I will look to see if I can find a more complete list of those buried at Mill Hollow to see if it shows any dates for those people. Any idea who the Anthony Keasbey, Esquire, was that helped incorporate the Mill Hollow Baptist Church in 1786? Since you are particularly interested in the Keasbey's, I'll elaborate on some additional information that I didn't include in the previous posting to the NJSALEM list for your use. Text is quoted below, but items in [brackets] are mine: From "History of Alloways Creek Baptist Church of Mill Hollow", by Rev. I. S. Hankins - After their death [Killingsworth and Holme], meetings were held in the homes around Elsinboro, Salem and near Alloways Creek, viz: Samuel Fogg and Daniel Smith, who lived then in the house now owned by Lucius Hires; Edward Quinton, who lived on the Quinton side; Edward Keasbey, near Salem; Abner Sims, east of Quinton, and others. [several paragraphs skipped] [The deed to the Mill Hollow congregation from Daniel Smith was dated June 20th, 1748.] It will be of interest to give it as it is recorded: "Daniel Smith, of Alloways Creek, Salem county, to Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton, conveys to Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton, and their successors of the denomination of His Majesty's (Uncle Sam wasn't born yet) protestant subjects, said people and their well wishers, have sit up a meeting house, bounded as follows (then described 6x6 perches) bounded on the north side of the road that goes to Thompson's Bridge (Alloway), this road running east and west. To have and to hold i.e. for an house of religious worship and burying ground forever." Signed DANIEL SMITH. SARAH SMITH. It evidently was the purpose of the church at Cohansey to be sure that the trustees living away over here, near Alloways Creek, executed the trust imposed upon them without default, as it required Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton to give a bond to the Cohansey Church officials in the sum of 100 pounds. The bond reads: "Bond of Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton, both of Salem county, to Nathaniel Jenkins (Pastor) John Remington and Obidiah Robins, all of Cohansey, in the sum of 100 pounds. Dated June 20th, 1748. Conditioned that if the said Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton shall allow the Baptists to worship, at, and in ye said house set up by the said people and their well wishers on a quarter of an acre of ground, near Alloways Creek, given by Daniel Smith, himself being a member of ye said Society", then this bond to be void, otherwise to be in force. The said Nathaniel Jenkins, John Remington and Obidiah Robins, and their survivors, ministers and elders and deacons, are to possess the same for the Baptist Church in the counties of Cumberland and Salem, whose meetings for communion is held monthly at Cohansey." Memorandum:--That the persons to whom this bond is given are at present Pastor, Elder and Deacon of Baptist Church in Cumberland counties and says, that as it was forgotten in deed and bond to give the house a name, it is hereby called--"Bethesday." which, according to Mr. Williams, signifies the House of Effusion or the House of Mercy." From "Three Hundred Years of Baptist Witness - The History of the Cohansey Baptist Church" by Rev. David Charles Laubach, ©1983, Cohansey Baptist Church of Roadstown, N.J.: [In 1688] Baptists in New Jersey were considered members of the Pennepack Baptist Church [now Lower Dublin] and met twice a year for communion and fellowship: the Spring in Salem and at Dublin or Burlington in the fall. [Thomas Killingworth arrived in the region in 1690.] Rev. Thomas Killingworth would be the person who gathered the Baptists in Fenwick's Colony into the "Cohansie" Baptist church in 1690. Killingworth who was ordained as a minister in Norwich, England, had previously assisted in forming Baptist Societies in Middletown (1688) and Piscataway (1689). Killingworth settled in Salem Town, became the first Judge of Salem Courts, purchased large acreages and preached throughout South Jersey and Chester County. He resided at the head of Broadway, on property long owned by the Keasbey family. The following "ear-mark" was registered for the cattle and swine of Thomas Killingworth: "a crop in the right ear and two slitts and a slitt in the left ear." [a drawing of the ear-mark is shown on the page] This earmark was registered in 1707-08 and descended to Edward Keasbey. Killingworth died in the Spring of 1709 and his wife, Prudence a few months later, bearing no children. The will of Thomas Killingworth reveals that he was a slave holder who owned "a negro girl valued at 25 pounds." Glad you found my compilation useful. Feel free to use it along with my email address. Hope you can use some of the above information also. Carol.". He was appointed a Trustee in 1786 of the Mill Hollow, Cohansey, Salem, New Jersey, USA, Baptist Church and Cemetery,.

(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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744.

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. 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.

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. 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.

With their two small children they journeyed by train to the Mississippi River and thence by wagon train across the trackless prairies to Des Moines, Iowa, then a small village of log cabins.

After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable.

(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.

After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. 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. 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..

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. 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.

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. 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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744.

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.

(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.

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.

(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.

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.

(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.

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.

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.

6Rev. I. S. Hankins,1913. Details sent to RRC on 15/04/2000 by Carol Y. Reese, Email: carol@hdyinc.com, "History of Alloways Creek Baptist Church of Mill Hollow" (was written in for the 26/06/1913 unveiling of a monument to the Salem Baptist pioneers.), 15/04/2000, Salem County Historical Society,, Salem, New Jersey, USA. "The cemetery off Salem Quinton Road, about two miles east of Salem on the north side of Route 49, between Salem and Quinton, NJ in the county of Salem, is the Mill Hollow Baptist Church Cemetery. The following information is from a "History of Alloways Creek Baptist Church of Mill Hollow", by Rev. I. S. Hankins. It was written in for the 26 June 1913 celebration of the unveiling of a monument to the Baptist pioneers of Salem buried there and erecting of an iron fence around the grave yard at Mill Hollow. The Mill Hollow Baptist Church was built in 1743 and abandoned in 1790. It was built half-way between Alloways Creek and Salem, an offshoot of the Cohansey Baptist Church. When the Cohansey Church was formed in 1690, its first pastor was Thomas Killingsworth. He lived in Salem and was responsible for creating Baptist sentiment in that part of the county. Baptist meetings began in the homes of the people of the area and were led by Thomas Killingsworth and Judge John Holme. The first recorded regular meeting place, near Salem, of Baptists, and led in worship by Thomas Killingsworth, was at the home of Jeremiah Nickson, in Penn's Neck, in the county of Salem. After the deaths of John Holme and Thomas Killingsworth, the Baptists in this part of the county continued to meet in homes around Elsinboro, Salem and near Alloways Creek and began to feel that they needed their own meeting house as it was too far to travel regularly to Cohansey. Since some members lived on the Salem side, and some near the Alloways Creek, it was decided to build half-way between, so they built at Mill Hollow in 1743 a frame building 22 x 30 (?) with galleries on three sides. Johnson in his history of Salem says that there was a tide mill at this place, which most likely gave it its name, Mill Hollow. Daniel Smith gave the land for the church and grave yard, one quarter of an acre (the deed was not given until 20 June 1748). The Cohansey Church required Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton to give a bond to the Cohansey Church officials in the sum of £100 and it was dated 20 Jun 1748. A Memorandum to the bond states that "as it was forgotten in deed and bond to give the house a name, it is hereby called -- "Bethesday," which, according to Mr. Williams, signifies the House of Effusion or the House of Mercy." The congregation shared monthly communions at the Cohansey Baptist Church until Mill Hollow became an independent Baptist Church on 17 May 1755. Those who signed the church covenant at that time were Rev. Job Sheppard, Catherine Sheppard, Edward Quinton, Temperance Quinton, Edward Keasbey, Prudence Keasbey, Abner Sims, Sarah Sims, John Holme, Daniel Smith, Seth Smith, Samuel Sims, Joseph Sneathen, Sarah Smith, Rachel Sneathen, Keren Happach Blackwood, John Whittall, Phebe Smith, Patience James. It was the first Baptist church in what is now Salem County. In 1786 Thomas Sayer, John Holme, Benjamin Holme and Anthony Keasbey (Esquires) and Samuel Vance, John Briggs, and Howell Smith (Gentlemen), were appointed trustees, in order be incorporated according to law. They changed their first name "Bethesda" to Anti-Pædo Baptist Society of Salem, letting the world know that they were a Church against the practice of infant baptism and only for believers' baptism by immersion. The congregation worshipped at Mill Hollow and buried their dead in the grave yard next to it for 47 years, until they decided it would be advisable to move the church into town of Salem. The building at Mill Hollow was sold and a new brick church was built on Yorke Street 1786-1790. Mrs. Mary Dunlap gave one and a half acres for the church and grave yard in on the condition that the church give yearly one ear on Indian corn, should it be demanded. They worshipped there from 1790 until it too was abandoned on 12 December 1846 when the First Baptist Church of Salem was dedicated on Broadway. (Personal note: The Broadway church and the Baptist graveyard at the Yorke Street property continue to be utilized to this day.) The grave yard at Mill Hollow was one of the oldest in this part of the county, older then Alloway, Canton or the Methodist in Salem, so many more were buried there than the stones indicate as tombstones were scarce in those days. Here are the names of some of the persons known to be buried there: Rev. John Sheppard-first pastor of the church; Edward Quinton (the village of Quinton was named after him); Daniel Smith-he gave the land for the church and graveyard and his father was a prominent man in the Fenwick Colony; Edward Keasbey-a large landholder and prominent citizen; Wade Barker, grandson of Samuel Wade, one of Fenwick's prominent colonists. A small boulder stone under a cedar tree is marked "J.H." which probably means John Holme, reputed to be a surveyor for William Penn who was the father of Col. Benjamin Holme. -----End of information from the historical sketch referenced above. Information from a newspaper article appearing 4 July 1913, describing the 26 June 1913 celebration of the unveiling of the monument and the erection of the iron fence, gives more information about the location of the cemetery. "At the time of the Revolutionary War and before Mill Hollow was on the main road from Salem to Thompson's Bridge (now Alloway), or as it was termed in Colonial days on the King's Highway from Salem to Maurice River, The British soldiers passed down that road. Afterward the present road was laid out (straightening the route considerably) the cemetery was thrown back from the highway and to all appearances became a part of the farm at present occupied by George Lawrence." -----End of information from the newspaper article From "History of the First Baptist Church, Salem, New Jersey", by F. B. LaBarrer, 17 May 1905 this list of ministers of the Mill Hollow Baptist Church appears: Revs. Job Sheppard, 1755 to 1757; John Sutton, 1761; John Blackwell, 1763; Abel Griffith, 1768 to 1775; Peter Vanhorn, 1784 to 1789. -----End of information from this historical sketch by Carol Y. Reese, Salem, New Jersey, USA, 15/04/2000. Email: carol@hdyinc.com I wrote to Carol thanking her for the information and asked for Dates of Death or Burial for those named as interred in the Mill Hollow Cemetery and the following was her reply on 17/04/2000. Ron, I don't have any details you need regarding the Keasbeys and Quintons. I will keep my eyes open to see if I can find some. I will look to see if I can find a more complete list of those buried at Mill Hollow to see if it shows any dates for those people. Any idea who the Anthony Keasbey, Esquire, was that helped incorporate the Mill Hollow Baptist Church in 1786? Since you are particularly interested in the Keasbey's, I'll elaborate on some additional information that I didn't include in the previous posting to the NJSALEM list for your use. Text is quoted below, but items in [brackets] are mine: From "History of Alloways Creek Baptist Church of Mill Hollow", by Rev. I. S. Hankins - After their death [Killingsworth and Holme], meetings were held in the homes around Elsinboro, Salem and near Alloways Creek, viz: Samuel Fogg and Daniel Smith, who lived then in the house now owned by Lucius Hires; Edward Quinton, who lived on the Quinton side; Edward Keasbey, near Salem; Abner Sims, east of Quinton, and others. [several paragraphs skipped] [The deed to the Mill Hollow congregation from Daniel Smith was dated June 20th, 1748.] It will be of interest to give it as it is recorded: "Daniel Smith, of Alloways Creek, Salem county, to Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton, conveys to Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton, and their successors of the denomination of His Majesty's (Uncle Sam wasn't born yet) protestant subjects, said people and their well wishers, have sit up a meeting house, bounded as follows (then described 6x6 perches) bounded on the north side of the road that goes to Thompson's Bridge (Alloway), this road running east and west. To have and to hold i.e. for an house of religious worship and burying ground forever." Signed DANIEL SMITH. SARAH SMITH. It evidently was the purpose of the church at Cohansey to be sure that the trustees living away over here, near Alloways Creek, executed the trust imposed upon them without default, as it required Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton to give a bond to the Cohansey Church officials in the sum of 100 pounds. The bond reads: "Bond of Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton, both of Salem county, to Nathaniel Jenkins (Pastor) John Remington and Obidiah Robins, all of Cohansey, in the sum of 100 pounds. Dated June 20th, 1748. Conditioned that if the said Edward Keasbey and Edward Quinton shall allow the Baptists to worship, at, and in ye said house set up by the said people and their well wishers on a quarter of an acre of ground, near Alloways Creek, given by Daniel Smith, himself being a member of ye said Society", then this bond to be void, otherwise to be in force. The said Nathaniel Jenkins, John Remington and Obidiah Robins, and their survivors, ministers and elders and deacons, are to possess the same for the Baptist Church in the counties of Cumberland and Salem, whose meetings for communion is held monthly at Cohansey." Memorandum:--That the persons to whom this bond is given are at present Pastor, Elder and Deacon of Baptist Church in Cumberland counties and says, that as it was forgotten in deed and bond to give the house a name, it is hereby called--"Bethesday." which, according to Mr. Williams, signifies the House of Effusion or the House of Mercy." From "Three Hundred Years of Baptist Witness - The History of the Cohansey Baptist Church" by Rev. David Charles Laubach, ©1983, Cohansey Baptist Church of Roadstown, N.J.: [In 1688] Baptists in New Jersey were considered members of the Pennepack Baptist Church [now Lower Dublin] and met twice a year for communion and fellowship: the Spring in Salem and at Dublin or Burlington in the fall. [Thomas Killingworth arrived in the region in 1690.] Rev. Thomas Killingworth would be the person who gathered the Baptists in Fenwick's Colony into the "Cohansie" Baptist church in 1690. Killingworth who was ordained as a minister in Norwich, England, had previously assisted in forming Baptist Societies in Middletown (1688) and Piscataway (1689). Killingworth settled in Salem Town, became the first Judge of Salem Courts, purchased large acreages and preached throughout South Jersey and Chester County. He resided at the head of Broadway, on property long owned by the Keasbey family. The following "ear-mark" was registered for the cattle and swine of Thomas Killingworth: "a crop in the right ear and two slitts and a slitt in the left ear." [a drawing of the ear-mark is shown on the page] This earmark was registered in 1707-08 and descended to Edward Keasbey. Killingworth died in the Spring of 1709 and his wife, Prudence a few months later, bearing no children. The will of Thomas Killingworth reveals that he was a slave holder who owned "a negro girl valued at 25 pounds." Glad you found my compilation useful. Feel free to use it along with my email address.

(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 Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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. 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. 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.

Henry Griffiths was born in Salem 1850. After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable. To meet demand for it the firm of Keasbey and Mattison (now in other hands) built a large plant north of Philadelphia. Henry's wife developed Tuberculosis and so he closed out his business interests and moved to Europe. His wife died 1897 in Menton, France. Marguerite Anna was born 1879.

(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. Temperance lived to age sixty in 1826 and was buried alongside her mother. Delzil Keasbey was born 1768. He married Rachel Smith who died in 1793 aged twenty three.

Jesse Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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.

In 1855 they answered the call of the opening West. With their two small children they journeyed by train to the Mississippi River and thence by wagon train across the trackless prairies to Des Moines, Iowa, then a small village of log cabins. Their fourth child was born in Des Moines. In 1860 the young mother died. Edward, concerned for the proper rearing of his children decided to return East. Henry, the eldest son, was taken into the home of his Uncle Anthony in Morristown and continued his education. Edward the first born of Edward and Mary Griffiths was born in Salem 1849 and died the same day. Mary Parry, born 1854 in Salem, married Francis Alonzo Hardy in 1880 at Perth Amboy. Henry Griffiths was born in Salem 1850. After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable. To meet demand for it the firm of Keasbey and Mattison (now in other hands) built a large plant north of Philadelphia. Henry's wife developed Tuberculosis and so he closed out his business interests and moved to Europe. His wife died 1897 in Menton, France. Marguerite Anna was born 1879.

(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.

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.

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.

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. 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 Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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.

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.

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.

(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.

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.

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.

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.

(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. Temperance lived to age sixty in 1826 and was buried alongside her mother. Delzil Keasbey was born 1768. He married Rachel Smith who died in 1793 aged twenty three. They had one son, Edward Smith Keasbey. Delzil was a Hatter and followed his trade in Salem for a number of years. His residence was in the ancient brick house situated at the upper end of East Broadway. Delzil sold his property to his brother Anthony and moved to Muncie Indiana where he died in 1837. Jesse Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable.

(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.

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.

Their fourth child was born in Des Moines. In 1860 the young mother died. Edward, concerned for the proper rearing of his children decided to return East. Henry, the eldest son, was taken into the home of his Uncle Anthony in Morristown and continued his education. Edward the first born of Edward and Mary Griffiths was born in Salem 1849 and died the same day. Mary Parry, born 1854 in Salem, married Francis Alonzo Hardy in 1880 at Perth Amboy. Henry Griffiths was born in Salem 1850. After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable. To meet demand for it the firm of Keasbey and Mattison (now in other hands) built a large plant north of Philadelphia. Henry's wife developed Tuberculosis and so he closed out his business interests and moved to Europe. His wife died 1897 in Menton, France. Marguerite Anna was born 1879. She became her fathers close companion after the death of her mother. Together they traveled extensively in England and France.

(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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744. 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.

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. Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Salem County in l840. In 1844 he was chosen a Presidential elector by the Whig party and gave his vote for Henry Clay.

With their two small children they journeyed by train to the Mississippi River and thence by wagon train across the trackless prairies to Des Moines, Iowa, then a small village of log cabins. Their fourth child was born in Des Moines. In 1860 the young mother died. Edward, concerned for the proper rearing of his children decided to return East.

Henry Griffiths was born in Salem 1850. After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable. To meet demand for it the firm of Keasbey and Mattison (now in other hands) built a large plant north of Philadelphia.

(Personal Information about the KEASBY family.), Edward (Deke) KEASBEY., Tierra Properties, Real Estate Investment, 11941 Santa Monica Boulevard,, Los Angeles, California 90025. USA., dkeasbey@gte.net. "DRAFT OF THE NARRATIVE FOR THE KEASBEY GENEALOGY STUDY. As At 18/03/2000. (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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744.

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.

(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.

After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. 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.

Henry was rewarded, on graduation, with a trip to New Orleans on one of the picturesque Mississippi riverboats of that era.

Returning to Philadelphia, he persuaded his college friend Dr. Mattison to join him in efforts to perfect quinine compounds.

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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744. 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.

In 1855 they answered the call of the opening West. With their two small children they journeyed by train to the Mississippi River and thence by wagon train across the trackless prairies to Des Moines, Iowa, then a small village of log cabins. Their fourth child was born in Des Moines. In 1860 the young mother died. Edward, concerned for the proper rearing of his children decided to return East.

After returning East, the family's traditional interest in medicine led him to choose chemistry as his life work and he attended the College of Chemistry in Philadelphia. Here he met Richard V. 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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. In 1877 Henry married Anna Isabella Griffith. They had four children: Marguerite, Henry Turner, Helen Hilda, and. Gwendolyn. During this period Henry. perfected a process for using asbestos for insulating pipes. His discovery proved revolutionary and. became highly profitable.

(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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744. 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. Temperance lived to age sixty in 1826 and was buried alongside her mother. Delzil Keasbey was born 1768. He married Rachel Smith who died in 1793 aged twenty three. They had one son, Edward Smith Keasbey. Delzil was a Hatter and followed his trade in Salem for a number of years. His residence was in the ancient brick house situated at the upper end of East Broadway. Delzil sold his property to his brother Anthony and moved to Muncie Indiana where he died in 1837. Jesse Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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.

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. 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.

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.

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.

When Edward died in 1779, he was buried beside his wife Prudence at Mill Hollow.

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.

(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".

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. 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.

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".

With their two small children they journeyed by train to the Mississippi River and thence by wagon train across the trackless prairies to Des Moines, Iowa, then a small village of log cabins.

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. Henry made a number of important discoveries, among them the perfection of a series of "bromo" compounds. With Dr. Mattison in charge of the business activities the enterprise prospered. 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. 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. Prudence was born in 1756. The family bible says she had a twin brother, Edward, who died in infancy. Prudence married a Colonel David Sayre in 1744. 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. Temperance lived to age sixty in 1826 and was buried alongside her mother. Delzil Keasbey was born 1768. He married Rachel Smith who died in 1793 aged twenty three. They had one son, Edward Smith Keasbey. Delzil was a Hatter and followed his trade in Salem for a number of years. His residence was in the ancient brick house situated at the upper end of East Broadway. Delzil sold his property to his brother Anthony and moved to Muncie Indiana where he died in 1837. Jesse Keasbey was born in 1770. He married Margaret Rowen daughter of Doctor John Rowan. He served as guardian for his young Sister-in-law Elizabeth Rowen until she died in 1795. 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. She died in 1851 aged seventy six and was buried in the Baptist cemetery in Salem. Sarah, widow of Edward Keasbey III was married in 1783 to Thomas Morton of Delaware and survived him. She died in Salem 1812 and was buried in the Baptist cemetery. ( INDIANA * to be completed later. ) Anthony Keasbey was a County Clerk at Salem.
