- A series of five volumes containing historical and genealogical miscellany compiled by John Stillwell. These records were gathered together in an effort to record the Stillwell families in New York and New Jersey. However, the scope was broadened to include all the records that Mr. Stillwell was searching when he realized the value of preserving the records for others. These volumes contain records of town court, early road surveys, cattle marks, and other miscellaneous matter for Richmond County, New York. There are also many church and court records from New Jersey.
This work lists the sources upon which the compilation was based, but does not indicate where specific records came from. Verification and validation of any given datum would require guessing as to which of the many sources used, a particular record came from, and then locating the original records.
