I traveled to New Jersey back in 2014 for two book tours. I had the opportunity to place a wreath at Abraham Clark's grave in Rahway, NJ. He represented New Jersey and signed the Declaration of Independence. My first book is about his life. A great read for the 4th of July celebrations for the birth of our nation. A FOUNDER FOR ALL is available on Amazon. My followup book, A PATRIOT'S PRICE, is also on Amazon. You will find a new appreciation for our founding fathers through these books. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!!

Does anyone know who oversees the upkeep of the Coward-Smith house in Imlaystown,NJ? It is right down the road from the Yellow Meeting House. Any way to be allowed inside? I am trying to go inside as many great grandfathers' houses as I can and this one was built by one(John Coward).
Any idea or suggestion as to where Port Richmond NJ was? It existed in census information in the late 1800's.
