Hi- At the New Jersey Archives, Trenton, I found some survey deeds involving DeMouths of Morris Co, NJ. 1. Lemuel Cobb surveyed for himself a tract between Stony Brook and Bloomingdale, Pequannack beginning at a tract returned to Hendry DeModt, Henry Berry, and Jacob Berry on 8 Nov 1762. Also a tract by/in "Bruen's Meadow Lot returned to George Ryerson 27 March 1754. This survey was witnessed and dated 5 Oct 1804. 2. Lemuel Cobb surveyed for the heirs or assigns of Hugh Hartshome at the request of Frederick DeMouth all that tract adjoining the farm of Adam DeMouth in Pequanack, Morris Co which was surveyed 12 May, 1715 for Gov William Penn. Also a tract situate on NE side of the Green Pond, Pequannack returned 14 September, 1751. The heirs of Hugh Hartshone/Hartshome claim right to these through a certificate of Mislocation to them at the request of Frederick Demouth dated 26 December 1761. This was witnessed 27 Nov. 1786. My Deckers in 1793 onward had land next to DeMouths. Can anyone connect the above early DeMouths/DeModts to the other names mentioned and then to the Deckers? Thanks for any help. Janet Bornhoeft

    The cemetery is the Rockaway Valley Cemetery just outside of Boonton, NJ. It's a very old cemetery. William Adkins and Phoebe Demouth (who is one of my ancestors) are both buried there. Paula
