Posted: 2 Jan 2001 12:00PM GMT Classification: Will Edited: 21 Aug 2001 2:27AM GMT Joshua Warne's wife was Elizabeth Throckmorton, dau. of Joseph and sister of Job Throckmorton. According to his will, which was executed the day before his death, he was a farmer and miller, and lived at South Amboy, Middlesex County, N. J. He appears also at one time to have lived in Middletown, or at Middletown Point, now Matawan. Eleven children are mentioned in his will, although he had at least twelve, one having died years before. He was a man undoubtedly of considerable standing.
