John Duryea (1861-1919) was a first cousin of my great great grandfather, Abraham Brewer Duryea (1878-1944). Abraham's middle name, Brewer, is from the family of his maternal grandmother, Rene Brewer (1824-1904).
John and Abraham's grandfather was Garrett Duryea (1777-1834). I am seeking documentation that Garrett's first wife was Charity Horton. John and Abraham descend from Garrett's second wife, Ann Cornell (1784-1871).
On my most recent trip to the New Jersey State Archives in Trenton, I copied John Duryea's marriage certificate to Katherine Dwyer (1858-1929). They were married in Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey on February 11, 1889. To my surprise and delight, John's middle name was included on the certificate. HORTON. I wonder if the family knew of the origin of this name when John was named, as he is the grandson of Ann Cornell, not Charity Horton.
