Ref#64:
"...perh. son of Benj., one of the Associates..."


"Genealogical Notices of the Settlers" by Samuel H. Congar in
"Proceedings Commemorative of the Settlement of Newark, NJ on its Two
Hundreth Anniversary May 17th, 1866" in "Collections of the NJ Hist Soc"
Vol VI- Supplement Newark, NJ: NJ Historical Soc., 1866.

Congar has this to say of the PARKHURST family:

"Benjamin PARKHURST of Elizabethtown, perh. son of Benj., one of the
Associates, in his w. 1721, n. ch. Benjamin, Samuel, John, Martha, Mary,
and Hannah; wi. Mary. Benjamin, had Jeniah, d. inf. and 7 daus; s. in 1.
David James, Moses Beach, John Kitchell, and a Muchmore; perh others.
Benj in Sussex ab 1800; par unk. Samuel m. Esther Baldwin, bur. on the
day bef. the Brit. army ent. town, 1776. They had Stephen, Caleb, David,
Samuel, and inf. dau. d. 1751. Stephen rem. to Springfield; had Samuel,
d. 19th Sept. 1831 a. 63; wh. s. Steph. d. 6th Nov. 1813 a. 22; and
Abraham, f. of Charles and Jonathan. Caleb m. Lydia Lyon; she d. 15th
Aug. 1785 a. 40; had Jabez, Henry L., Hannah Wilson, Esther Clark, Lydia,
Nehemiah, Caleb, and Abby Lyon. He d. 7th Feb. 1817 a. 73; had sec. wi.
wid. Eunice Brown. David d. Oct 1778; had John, Samuel, David, and Mary
Woodruff, wi. of Abner. Rev. Samuel, grad. Princeton, d. and bur. at
Blooming Grove, young; had Nathaniel, and Mary. Samuel d. 1783."

Another source says that Samuel PARKHURST came from Saybrook, CT before
the Revolution. That citation is History of Essex and Hudson Counties" by
William H. Shaw, Philadelphia, PA: Everts and Peck, 1884. In another
section of this book Shaw quotes all of Congar's material, however the
statement about CT was in a different section referring to PARKHURSTs
then living in Milburn, NJ.
