Looking for any info leading to the whereabouts of Peter Uptegrove's parents. Peter was b. sometime around 1760, d. 1830, and apparently was a Farmer in Vernon Twp, (Sussex Co.) NJ, was married to a "Catherine" and had 5 dau. and 2 sons Richard, and William. My direct line follows his son Richard, b. 1783, the other son was William Pierson. Richard m. Eunice Genung, and William m. Cornelia Ann Slaughter. Beleive Peter's parents would have been born approx 1740, and may have come from PA. We know that Richard's and William's children were all born in Orange Co., NY. They remained in that area for awhile, until some of them headed back down to NJ again in the early 1900s. We can't quite figure out the rationale of the migration route that took place here initially. Whether they came from PA and started working their way east then north, or visa versa. I know that some Uptegroves (or Upthegroves/Updegroves) went up to Canada during or right after the Revolutionary war.
Be glad to share and exchange information that will hopefully shed some light on some of these mysteries!
