Notes:







1850 Census - Morris Co., NJ, Pequannac - p. 7(Ancestry image)
AdamDemouth AGE 61, A LABORER, is listed living with the family of Adam and Anna Jacobus.
It looks like there is a Catherine DeMouth, age 14, also listed. She could be the female under 5 listed above.

Adam was born about 1789. He fought in the War of 1812. He served in the 2nd Regiment of New Jersey Militia known as Seward's Militia, from September 1814 to December 1814. Between information from the census of 1830 and the census of 1840, I have figured he had at least 7 children, but in those censuses only numbers were listed, not names. 1850 was the first census to list all family members by name. In the 1850 census, Adam is working as a laborer, his wife has died, and he and his 14 year old daughter Catherine are living with Adam and Anna Jacobus. Could they be his in-laws? very possibly but we don't know. Catherine grew up and married first John Riker in 1852 and then David Greenswike in 1862. With John Riker she had at least two children, Phebe and Mary Ann.
