    Hi Judith,
    John & Daniel Courter were my great-great grandfathers.
    Daniel b:1839 in Caldwell,NJ-died:3/1/1907 his grave marker reads
    2/28/1907. He married Hannah Marie Cadmus 11/2/1862. He was a private in
    the Civil war NJ Vol. John-B:1842 in Morris County-he married Hannah
    (widow of Daniel) 10/2/1909. Died-3/24/1911-He was a sargeant in the NY
    cavalry. Their father was Jacob.
    Charles Francis was Daniel's son- my great grandfather.
    Is this the same family?

    Dear Terry
    Found time to go over censuses for your Courter family and enter your notes.
    I do not know who was the father of Jacob Courter but my theory is that he
    was the son of Jacob Courter and Ellen Jacobus.
    I have studied Jacob Courter and Ellen Jacobus inside and out because that is
    where I found Greener had placed my family from Bergen County which was
    incorrect.
    Greener had a Jacob Courter in this family but I have not been able to find
    proof of his bp as I can with all other children. Stone House Plains Church
    in West Bloomfield records begin in 1802. Jacob Courter could have been born
    before 1802. He is not in will of Jacob Courter but many times family


    disputes leave people out of wills. If I were to place your Jacob Courter in
    any place it would be with this family.
    I will post information on Jacob Courter and Ellen Jacobus after I send you
    data on your family.
    On my data I have Charles Francis Courter and Sarah Queiman (I have Coeman)
    as parents of Eville b 1897
    Olive b 1890
    Mary b 1892
    Raymond b 1893
    John b 1895
    Nettie b 1897
    You have Annie
    Willie
    Olive
    Macy
    Raymond
    John
    Myrtle
    Where is my error in using names?
    Charles Frances Courter and Sarah Queman (Coeman) are first cousins. Did you
    know that?
    The 1870 census has a 17 year old Phebe Jane 18 living at Little Falls. I
    have looked at index but not census.
    Here are censuses that I have copies
    1850 Caldwell Twsp p 91
    252-285 John Freeman 45 laborer all b NJ pauper
    Jacob Courter 45
    Ellen 39
    Mary Ann 14
    William H. 8
    Emmons 6
    Benjamin 4
    Phebe Jane 1
    Neither Daniel or John listed. I have an index that Daniel is on p 91 but it
    must be a second page of 91. Jacob must have sent children out to work when
    they were 9.

    452 474 Jacob Courter 62
    Alice 47
    Phebe 11
    Abram 9
    If this is same family notice how the ages change. The reason I have put
    them together is the child Phebe. This is unusual name in Courter family.
    1870 Phebe is in Little Falls at age 18.
