My RAUB (and more) Ancestry

        The Raub family settled first in Raubsville, Northampton County, PA.  By the mid 1700s, my branch of the family was in Sussex County, NJ.  The Township of Knowlton, where they farmed, became part of Warren County when it separated from Sussex County in 1824.
        Pictured at the left is the Raub homestead, built by my 3rd great grandfather, Michael Raub.  It is located between Vail and Blairstown.  Some of Michael's descendants still live in this house, and I was thrilled to visit there in the fall of 2002.
        My grandfather, Daniel Brands Raub, had a small genealogy done for the RAUB family in 1934.  That genealogist, however, had little interest in all the men and women the Raubs had married.  What follows is my attempt to ferret out more information about ALL my ancestors and cousins.  Andrew Raub, my 4th great grandfather, had 11 children.  I know of at least 30 grandchildren.  Where did all their descendants go?

The internet has helped me find some wonderful cousins I never knew I had, and to reconnect with some others.  Special thanks to Sandy Brands, Shirley Hering, Linda Hora, Albert Hosbach, Marshall Lake, Bob Lanterman, Howard and Wickliffe Mott, Sandy Read and Hilda Lake Swingle for all their help.

One of the best ways to connect with others searching in the same area you are is to join a "list".  There is a list for each of the counties in New Jersey (and probably all the other states).  This link will take you to a page where you can select the NJ county which interests you, and thus link you to a page with instructions for joining the list.
