    Notes 
    • The earliest identified ancestor of this family is Richard Misener of New Jersey. Richard is believed to be the original emigrant that came to New Jersey; however, this family story has not be documented by records contemporary with Richard. Richard's great grandson, "Uncle" Adam Misener (1798-1901) recalled that the Misener family were "Hollanders" who arrived in 1720 and settled in New Jersey. Richard and his wife Elizabeth left record in Newton, Sussex County, New Jersey in what is today Warren County. Warren County is located in the Western most part of New Jersey and is a mountainous region. The earliest settlers in the region were Dutch from Kingston, New York that came and set up copper mining in the area. Later groups came from Pennsylvania; many of these later settlers were Quakers. In the 18th century, Warren and its neighbor Sussex were remote regions sparsely populated with only around 600 people inhabiting the area by 1750. The region saw some farming and dairy farming was the principle agricultural pursuit in the region.
       
      Richard left a will probated on the 22nd of April 1762 in Sussex County. This will is our primary source for information on Richard and his children who are named in the will. Adam Misner "yeoman" serves as administrator for the estate with Henry Misener as bondsman; both were of Hardwick township in Sussex. Richard is believed to have the following children, probably all by his wife Elizabeth: Adam; Henry; and Nicholas. [2]
