  • Notes 
    • From Wikipedia:

      John Ogden (1609–1682), known as "The Pilgrim", was an early settler in New England, Long Island, and an original patentee of the Elizabethtown Purchase, "the first English settlement in the Colony of New Jersey."

      [...] In Stamford, Connecticut, then called Rippowam, he constructed a dam and grist mill. In 1642 he built "the first permanent stone church in Fort Amsterdam," a Dutch settlement at the southern tip of what is now Manhattan Island. In 1644 he relocated to Long Island, where "he established the first commercial whaling enterprise in America."

      In 1665 he became a patentee of the Elizabethtown Purchase in present-day Elizabeth, New Jersey, where he lived until his death in 1682. He is buried in the First Presbyterian Churchyard in Elizabeth.
