I have a John Garretson who married Content Hussey in New Castle, DE in 1736
just before moving to York, PA. As the Hussey's, Cox's and Garretson's were
closely intermarried I would be interested in any information you might
descendant of Nathan Hussey and Ann (Cox) Garretson, the above John
Garretson's mother and brother-in-law, as well as John's other
brother-in-law, John Hussey III. My Hussey descendants were later in
Jefferson, OH as well.
