As you will soon see I came completely frustrated! This is my Jewell connection: Martha (Patty) Jewell was born 12 Aug 1792 in New Hackensack, New York, she married Oct 10, 1810 in New Hackensack, Andrew G. Lossing (Lawson, Lassen) . Her father was John H. Jewell he was born 1767 in New Hackensack, New York, her mother was Catherine Reynders, they were married 13 Sep 1783, New Hackensack. Now for my problem, Who are John H. Jewell's parents. I have look high and low, but to no avail. Perhaps someone knows of this family. I would like to find this line. I think the father is Harmon or Herman Jewell but I am not sure as his mother was Elizabeth Hillicker. Does that help, or does it make it worse. This is just an educated guess and his middle initial is H.
