I understand the name Staats has an important history in NJ. I believe the family moved there around 1710. The Abraham Staats House was built by my 8th great-grandfather. Since John (my direct ancestor) did not need the house, his brother Abraham got it.
I would love to know more about my family history and the importance they played in NJ.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I hope to receive enough information to write a book based around the family and highlighting the Abraham Staats House.
Thank you for your help.
Daniel D. Staats
