Living next to the even wealthier Theodore R. Sitgreaves, age 52, merchant, and his mother age 87. Sitgreaves married Anna Michler in 1873. The Sitgreaves Mansion is now 217 Spring Garden St.)
Birth26 June 1791He was born on 26 June 1791 in Piscataway, Middlesex County, New Jersey.
Occupation10 April 1811On 10 April 1811 James worked in New Brunswick, Middlesex County, New Jersey, as a newspaperman. "The New Brunswick Fredonian was established on the 10th of April 1811, by the brothers James and David Fitz Randolph, who were born in the township of Piscataway, Middlesex County. They served an apprenticeship to the printing business in the Office of the Gazette, at Alexandria, Va., and were but little past their majority when they commenced the publication of the Fredonian. The paper was at first printed on a medium sheet, issued weekly, and presented a creditable typographical appearance, the Randolphs being good practical printers in their day. The Randolphs were earnest Republicans of the Jeffersonian type, and advocated the principles of that party in the Fredonian, which at once took high rank in importance and influence in the State, the paper circulating largely in all the counties. The editorials were mainly written by James F. Randolph, were models in style, terse, vigorous, and brief, full of the advanced and cultivated thought of the day, and in consequence were quoted largely in other newspapers, and made their mark upon the times. The brothers were active in all the social, religious, and political movements in town, county, and State, and frequently filled places of honor and trust in the community. They were honored with such offices as alderman, justice of the peace, judge of the Court of Common Pleas, mayor, county clerk, postmaster, etc., the brothers sharing equally the emoluments of any office or business in which either of them was engaged. They did not confine their labors solely to the printing business, but also engaged in other mercantile affairs a large portion of the time of their connection with the Fredonian. During the years of 1828, '29, '30, '31' ,and '32, James was a member of Congress, and took an important part in the debates therein. In consequence of a growing deafness he resigned his seat in Congress in 1832. He continued very deaf during the remainder of his life. About the year 1848 James went to Easton, Pa., to reside and there engaged in the wholesale coal business, in which he succeeded in accumulating a handsome fortune. He still continued to write the leading editorials of the Fredonian, which were regularly forwarded to it each week until the paper passed out of the hands of the Randolphs, in 1854. James was the father of Theodore F. Randolph, Governor of New Jersey from 1869 to 1872. During the period that the Fredonian was published by the Randolphs, the paper supported the national administrations of Presidents Madison, Taylor, and Fillmore, advocating the doctrines of the Whig party during the whole period that party was in existence. The brothers were model citizens, and highly respected wherever known. David died at New Brunswick in 1863, and James at Easton, Pa., in 1872. After publishing the Fredonian for a period of 43 years, the establishment was sold to John F. Babcock on the 12th of April, 1854, Mr. Babcock having occupied a subordinate position in the office during the previous fifteen months. While the Randolphs published the Fredonian, very little attention was given to the publication of local news, their efforts having been almost solely directed to State and national affairs. Under the editorship of Mr. Babcock the character of the paper was materially changed."

Biography

NoteIn W. Woodford Clayton's "History of Union & Middlesex Counties, New Jersey (1882) he lists Susannah's children as: "Daniel, who died unmarried, Nicholas Morgan, James Morgan, Charles Morgan, Hannah (Mrs. William I. Dey), Catherine (Mrs. Peter Burlew), and Elsie (Mrs. Alfred Letts). In Susannah's will, she referred to Alice Letts.
Birthabout 1803Alice J ("Elsie") Disbrow was born about 1803.
Marriageabout 1826James Vanderhoef and she were married about 1826 in Middlesex County, New Jersey, The name James was provided in the marriage record of their son Theodore, in Massachusetts in 1850.
Census1840She appeared in the census 1840 in North Brunswick Township, Middlesex County, New Jersey. Alice is listed as: "Elcy Vanderhoof", female age 30 and under 40. Also in her entry are:
1 male under 5
2 males 5 and under 10
1 female 5 and under 10

It is difficult to square this data with estimated birthdates of the children we think were hers:
Boy under 5 would be born 1835- maybe this boy died. If she had a boy under 5, that limits James Vanderhoof's death to between 1835 and 1840.

Boys between 5 and 10 - Theodore M was 14, Orin Jerome was 13. There is the possibility that she had more boys who either died or I have not turned them up yet. Theodore and Orin could have been out in other households as apprentice potters.
Female between 5 and 10 was Amanda Susan who was 9.
