INTERESTING RECORDS Warren County, New Jersey Blairstown Area
I don't have publication information on this article, I felt certain
there was enough information in it to make it imperative that I share
Note that Morris Crisman, born in 1815, was still living at the time
was published. Special thanks to Nan Horsfield for sending it to
all things that have become old and matters of record are usually of
interest, especially those who have some immediate concern therein, we
have induced Mr. Morris Crisman to allow us to publish the "marriage
kept by his father from 1805 to 1854. Those after that date were
recorded by the children.
The house in which Mr.
Crisman lives, at Crismantown, is also of considerable interest, it
seen beneath its roof the birth of four generations. Charles
the grandfather, was born in Germany and came to this country in the
1769, and secured a parchment deed from Ephraim Manning for a large
of land in 1787. From his union with Mary Kimble came Isaac
the father of Morris. He was born in that house in 1779 and in
married Susan Shippen, from which marriage were born seven children,
boys and one girl, the latter marrying Sampson Howell.
Morris Crisman, who
born in 1815, still lives in the old home, with his brother, Edgar, and
his sons, Cassius and Blair, who till the farm. In very few homes
will be found the father, sons and grandchildren all living as one
The marriages are
in a little leather-covered diary for 1802, in a neat hand and with ink
that has retained its color remarkably well.
