Notes:


Frederick Demouth, 1697-1766, mentions lands at New Foundland in his will. He left to his "Daughters, Elizabeth and Catharine, 4 lots at New Foundland." J. Percy Crayon in "Rockaway Records of Morris County, N.J. Families," 1902 says, "Mr. Thomas Demouth . . . lived and owned lands where the Clinton Reservoir now is." I believe that is where New Foundland is. Thomas was a great grandson of the aforementioned Frederick.
Thomas married the third Levi sibling, Betsy Levi. Thomas and Betsy ended up with father Jacob's homestead farm and lived there at least through 1880. They had eight children, Abner, Electa, Wesley, Thomas Jr., Hiram, Harrison, Elizabeth, and Minerva. Sons Wesley and Harrison fought in the Civil War. Harrison died of disease at Ship Point, Virginia. He received a commendation for distinguished service and his mother received a pension because of his service. His name is inscribed on the Soldiers and Sailors Monument at Eastside Park in Paterson, New Jersey. Abner married Catherine Jane Stillwell and they had six children. Electa married Peter D. Vreeland and they stayed in West Milford, NJ, (at least through 1880) and had six children. Wesley married Susannah Sigler and they had two daughters. Thomas Jr. died a few months short of his 20th birthday. Hiram married a girl with last name of Stagg. He appears on the census with Mom and Dad in 1860, 1870, and 1880. Elizabeth married Patrick Burns. Minerva, the youngest, was still living with her parents in 1870 but not in 1880.
