It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

Mary (Jones) Fitz Randolph (1672-1760) was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey to Jeffery and Safronie (Walter) Jones.  She married Samuel Fitz Randolph on 8 June 1693 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and they had 9 children in Woodbridge, New Jersey.  According to this record, Mary Fitz Randolph died the 1st month (January?) 16, 1760 in Woodbridge.  

Samuel and Mary (Jones) Fitz Randolph are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Jacob Fitz Randolph (1706-1779), who married (1) FNU LNU (about 1710-before 1764) before 1730, and (2) Mary (Fitz Randolph) (Thorne) (Fitz Randolph) (Horseman) Jackson in about 1764.  I am descended through the spouse with no known name.
