    Notes:

    From George Washington's Secret Spy War: The Making of America's First Spymaster by John A. Nagy (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2016):

    There was a change in the sand dunes that made up a portion of the New Jersey coastline early in 1778. It opened the Shrewsbury River to the sea and the inlet remained open until 1800. This changed Sandy Hook from a promontory into an island that was controlled by the British army. At times the British navy had a warship stationed at the Hook. Sandy Hook was even called "Refugee's Town," where Tories could receive protection from the British military stationed there. This would have made it possible for a small boat from Shrewsbury to go out of the inlet and head north to drop off merchandise either to the sloop Eagle at Princess Bay, to refugees, or to the military encampment at Sandy Hook. Governor Livingston stated that the illegal trade had depleted Bergen County by August of 1778 and had shifted its focus to Shrewsbury and that the state was unable to stop it.

    Lieutenant Enos Reeves of the Pennsylvania Line wrote that "there has been an amazing trade carried on from [New] Jersey shore to the city of New York, but we hope to put a stop to it." It was wishful thinking, as they could not raise enough men to guard the entire coastline. Washington left the enforcement of the illegal trade to the state. He had Brigadier General David Forman of the New Jersey Militia station observers in the Raritan Bay area to keep a watchful eye on British shipping. Colonel John Stillwell watched from his house atop Garrett's Hill. He used a spyglass provided by General Forman. His reports on the movement of ships in Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook were in the form of a diary and were given to David Forman, who then provided them to Washington. Martha Tallman Seabrook, who lived at Shoal Harbor, worked as an agent in sending reports of observations.

    [Footnote:] Shoal Harbor is now known as Port Monmouth. Martha was the wife of the American Major Thomas Seabrook. With Thomas off to war, she opened the house as an inn and today it is known as the Spy House.

    Martha married Maj. Thomas Seabrook on 11 Oct 1758 in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Thomas (son of Daniel Seabrook and Mary Brown) was born on 16 Feb 1735 in Middletown, Monmouth, New Jersey; died on 22 Feb 1805 in Middletown, Monmouth, New Jersey; was buried in Fair View Cemetery, Middletown, Monmouth, New Jersey.
