Descendants of William Shreve


Generation No. 4


4. CALEB6 SHREVE (THOMAS5 SHERIFF, WILLIAM4 SHREVE, WILLIAM3, LAWRENCE2 SHERIFF, LAWRENCE1) was born Abt. 1652, and died Abt. 1741 in Burlington County, NJ. He married SARAH ARESON Abt. 1680, daughter of DIEDRIC ARESON. She died Abt. 1741 in Burlington County, NJ.

Notes for C
ALEB SHREVE:
SHREVE or SHERIFF, CALEB
Born: Circa 1652 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island [LCF; TOMO]
Died: Circa 1740, Burlington, New Jersey [TOMO]
Married: 1680 [LCF; TOMO]to Sarah Areson of Long Island[LCF]; daughter of Diedrich Areson, of Holland. [TOMO]

WFT 2:4810 claims christening as about 1653 Portsmouth, but primary documents are not cited. Caleb received land warrants in East New Jersey as early as 1676. Assuming he was of age that would put his birth date as between 1650 and 1655. Further, if this birth date is accurate, his marriage to Sarah Areson occurred when he was about twenty-seven or twenty-eight, which also seems unremarkable. In all, the birth date is reasonable, but unsubstantiated outside of secondary sources.

Notes for S
ARAH SHREVE:

Born: Probably ca. 1665-1668 Little Compton, Rhode Island
Died: June 24, 1732 [LCF;TOMO]
Married: John Moon [LCF; TOMO]

Sarah and John's first child, also named John Moon, was born on May 16, 1685. This yields, at minimum, a probable marriage date of about 1684. A probable birth date for Sarah would be between 1665 and 1668.
