Thomas-6 Hallock (1762-1822) and Sarah Bedell of New Jersey - 12 Children

The 1851 genealogy for "Passaic Valley.." NJ, referred to below, contains a bushel-basketful of Hallock descendants of this couple that are not in the published Hallock Genealogies. They are the 12 children and descendants of Thomas and Sarah (Bedell) Hallock of "the Passaic Valley above Chatham", New Jersey. Note Chatham is about 90 miles due east of Brookhaven, Suffolk NY and abt 118 miles due east of Southold, Suffolk, New York.
