Sally's great-great-great-great-great-great Grandparents:

Nathan Foster ca 1680 - 1737 |  his parents
& ca 1713 Mary Lyon ca 1690 - ca 1748
  | her parents
of Essex County, New Jersey


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!

   Nathan Foster son of Joseph Foster was born ca 1680 in Southampton. L I. 
   He died 18 Nov 1737 in Newark, Essex Co, NJ.
    Inventory of personal estate 181.08.07.
   Mary Lyon daughter of Joseph Lyon ca 1659-1726 and Mary Pierson was born ca 1690.

   Nathan and Mary moved to Newark after their marriage. 
A 1713 Newark deed lists him as a clothier living in Newark.
 They had returned to Elizabeth by 1726, when a deed identifies him living there, near Bound Green. 
 He died at  Elizabeth, NJ and was interred at the Old Burial Ground, Orange. 
 The inventory of his will include silver spoons, books, and a black male slave.
