Abstract:

This collection contains the notes of Reverend Nicholas Murray, the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The notes were compiled cover the years 1776 to 1853, and are Murray's research on the death of his predecessor, Reverend James Caldwell. Based upon these notes, Murray presented a paper to the New Jersey Historical Society in 1848, in which he asserts that Caldwell was indeed murdered by James Morgan, an American soldier on sentry duty, in 1781. Murray's supporting evidence is documented in the affidavits, correspondence, and other research notes included in this collection. Amongst the witnesses submitting affidavits are Hannah Austin, William Clark, Samuel Downer, Mary Grover, Shepard Kollock, Elizabeth Ross, James Ross, John Stiles, Belcher Woodruff, Henry Woodruff, and Stephen Woodruff. Notes contain Murray's incoming letters, which covers the years 1807 to 1853, all of which is in reference to his research on Caldwell. Correspondents include J.F. Caldwell, Samuel Miller, Aaron Ogden, and William S. Pennington.
