  • Notes 
    • Like his father, Benjamin was a prosperous Huntington mill owner. Having married at least 13 years before his father's death, Benjamin clearly had received his share of the estate many years earlier, and thus received no bequest in the will. In 1740, a few years after his father's death, Benjamin sold the Huntington properties and removed to Rahway, where he purchased mills from a Joseph Bailey. No will has been found for Benjamin, very likely because death came suddenly and one could not be written. The principal source of information about Benjamin and Hannah and their 10 children is the Bible of the oldest son, Benjamin.
