My Mom lives on Morris Lake in Sparta, NJ, and just found out that John Peter Norman owned and operated a forge on Norman Pond (which is now known as Morris Lake), back in 1788. Do you happen to know WHERE the forge was located, or where the family lived? I know it was near the outflow of the lake, but no more specifics.
Could you tell me where I could go for a copy of the William McCabe book which you mentioned? Perhaps it would clarify some of our questions.
Thank you so much!
