bullet  General Notes:

When the Shewards came to the U.S., they apparently spent some time in New Jersey. Uncle Jack lived there longer than the others, and my mother and father spent their honeymoon with him in New Jersey. According to Aunt Marge, it was a small town.

The New Jersey State Library informs me: In 1909, carpet factories were found in Paterson and Little Falls in North Jersey; Heightstown and Freehold in Central NJ, and Newfields in South Jersey.
