I believe that I have found the book that was mentioned earlier on down the message board. The tittle : The early migration of the Jacobus family:from New Jersey to central New York and pioneer farmers pushing west. by L. Maxine Harris. I found it on the web but have yet been able to locate a copy to read since I only have the tittle info etc. If anybody can locate it, please let me know

The DAR Library in DC has the publication. I haven't seen it, but it is listed in their indexes of publications they hold.

It has some New Jersey data in it, but most of the book traces Maxine's branch of the family through upstate New York, Indiana and Illinois. I have done a fair amount of research on the New Jersey branches through about 1850: who are you looking for?

I am just trying to find out if the Jim Tranquada that replied to this posting is one with a family history that came from Madeira with the name Diaz and settled in Hawaii in the 1890's. If you are, I believe my mother and grandmother have copies of the genealogical work you have done, but I have never met you and you probably don't know me either. I am Marge Davis's granddaughter and am very interested in talking to you about what you have done and if I can help in any way. Please respond to this post if you are the Jim Tranquada I am looking for. Thank you!

Didn't know there was a Jacobus Book. My greatgrandmother was Isabella Jacobus. She married John Provost. I believe they lived in the Montville, NJ area. They had several children, one of them being my grandfather, Jesse. Unfortunately, I don't know who her parents were. However in the 1860 census there was an Isabella living with her parents David J. and Elizabeth in Boonton. I'm trying to find out if this is my Isabella. Can you help? Any info would be greatly appreciate.
