    John BLAIR

    Male Abt 1720 -

    Personal Information    |    PDF

    • Name John BLAIR 
      Born Abt 1720 
      Gender Male 
      • According to information received from the Blair Society for Genealogival Research:
      • Vol IX, #2 pg 8 " The earliest Blair we have found in Somerset Co., NJ was a John Blair "of Peapack". In 1754 a notice was published in the Philadelphia paper for John Blair of Peapack to pick up his mail in Trenton, NJ. John was also listed
        in the day book of a merchant John Van Der Veer in Bedminster Twp Somerset Co., NJ covering May 1, 1767 to Jan 25, 1774. His purchases included rum, snuff, ginger, tar, tobacco, wine, sugar, and a castor hat. He paid his debt in tallow, wheat
        and pork. No further word has yet been found in the surviving documentsof that period, but we can hazard a guess that John Blair COULD be the father of five men, three of whom lived in Somerset Co. These three married girls whose families
        also lived in Somerset.
