      In Reply to: Re: Joshua CASE-NJ & Elizabeth Dickerson by Anne Goddard

      I wonder if this is a correct "Elizabeth" for our Joshua case. A Elizabeth Dickerson married an Andrew Wager, son of Charles, on Jan 21, 1743 at Southold, LI, NY. They later moved to Morris Cty, NJ. A Genealogy book written about the Dickerson Family (Don't have title, but author is Wesley Baker) He states that Elizabeth daughter of Thomas did not mary a Joshua Case and could not have as she was married to Andrew Wager and he was still alive to witness a will in 1781. I have not found any documentation either as to who Joshua married too. So Dickerson researchers feel Elizabeth married Andrew and he lived till after the Revolution, so who did Joshua marry and where are the records? I find that our "Case" ancestors did not leave us many clues. Another Case researcher e-mailed me info about Joshua that he died 9 July 1777 age 56, and is buried in Succasunna, NJ. May have died of Small Pox as an epidemic was going on at that time. His will dated 1 Jul 1777, proved 16 Aug 1777 (Lib 19, pg. 138) states wife "Elizabeth". My thought is we need to find a record/document to prove who Joshua was married to. Otherwise most of our information is just "Family Lore".

      See: Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol.1, p. Serial: 8399; Volume: 7, DAR for Joshua Case bur. Succasunna NJ 24.

      Also in The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Volume 39 page 53: "His sons, Samuel, Joseph and Augustus, and son-in-law, Daniel Pedmore, also served in the war. "

      Some say Joshua born in RI.

      On my last visit to NJ I located Joshua's grave. He is buried in the 1st Presbyterian Church Cemetery on Main St. in Succasunna, NJ. His stone is in excellent condition. It is made of red sandstone and reads: In memory of Joshua Case who departed this life July the 9th 1777 aged 55 years.
      I didn't see a stone for his wife but there were a good number of Dickersons buried in the same area. If you go looking, His grave is on the right side of the church as you face it from Main St. and Very close to the Building.
