Whitenack Family History and Letters, by Mildred Hamburg (cont.)

Listed in the 1850 census of Morris Twsp., Morris Co., NJ which have not been placed in Blakert Whitenack's descendants:

Name Age Occupation Birth
Isaac Whitenack 56 laborer NJ (1794)
Ruba Whitenack 54 female NJ (1796)
John Whitenack 24 laborer NJ (1826)
Karia Whitenack 22 female NJ (1828)
David Whitenack 62 farmer NJ (1788)

Windham Twsp, Morris Co: John Whitenack, age 16, born in NR (1834).

Will of Bliker Whitenack, Passaic Twsp., Morris Co., NJ dated 24 Apr 1879 (5756 N). Wills dear sister, Laura Whitenack personal and real estate to be sold and the proceeds shall be expended upon the old Whitenack burial grounds where my father is buried and an iron fence made around the same. Signed Bliker Whitenack Executors, Calvin Thompson and Jeremiah Hayden.

The above Bliker Whitenack is probably the son of John who was the sone of Bliker and Patience Whitenack. Lauey Whitenack (5986 N Inv. 1881) is probably the sister Laura's will.

Will of Samuel Whitenack (3802 N W 1856) Morris Co. is available from Office of Secretary of State, New Jersey. Will of James H. Whitenack (7031 N Inv. 1890) Morris Co. would be only an inventory.

There are records of a private Bleker Whitenack who enrolled 5 Sep 1814 and was discharged 4 Dec 1814 (War of 1812).

There are records of another John Whitenack who married Lydia Cooper 4 May 1819. He was born 19 Apr 1795 and died 30 Mar 1850.

Also there was a Bliker Whitnack of Logansvile who married Phebe Paine of Spring Valley on 12 Jan 1817.

A Sally Whitnack married Baily Breeze of Basking Ridge, NJ on Jun 1829, she died 20 Feb 1883 age 75 (born 1808).

A John Whitenack married Alice Horton who was the daughter of Milton Horton, born in 1820, who was the son of John Horton who came from Long Island to Newark.

Lorenzo Sabine's book entitled: "The American Loyalists" lists a John Whitenack of Studholm, Kings county, New Brunswick, NJ where he died in 1841, age one hundred years which makes the year of his birht 1741. This is further proof that either Johannas Weidknecht who lived in Somerset county married two or more times or there are some 'ghost' Whitenack lines that we are not aware of. There seems to be no connection to Martin Whiteknight's line who settled in Pennsylvania in 1732 or Samuel Whitenack who settled in Virginia about 1736.
