That card file with the mar of Paul Garretson to Elizabeth Cock is in error. I have a photo copy of the original deed from which it was abstracted. It described John Garretson as the son of Paul. Immediately after Paul's name was a crazy comma, made like a miniscule C and written on the line. Following that is the name of Elizabeth Cock who was John's wife. See Peter Craig's " 1693 Census of the Swedes on the Delaware", pp96 & 107 which describes Elizabeth as d/o Samuel Petersson, who in turn m1 Christiern Joransson, m2 Valentine Cock and m3 John Garretsson. Paul Garretson was describer as dec'd in that 1734 record; Old Swedes has a rec of the 1730 mar of John Garretson to Elizabeth Cock.
