I can only review that of which I know...William Stratton, who is written under the Asa Stratton paragraph. Unfortunately the information contained about him is quite faulty.
First and foremost
, his ancestors did not come from "Holland". William is of the Mark Stratton, of New Jersey line and they came from Market Harborough Leicestershire Great Britain. Mark and his brother Immanuel landed in New Jersey in 1702. Mark's son, Isaac, built the Stratton-Braddock House of Medford, New Jersey, which still stands and is a state historical site.
Wm. Oliver Stratton, William's son, was my great grandfather.
Second, although the paragraph was entitled Asa Stratton, very little was written about Asa. Most of the paragraph was about William. Asa was another of William's sons and a brother of my great grandfather.
Finally, one cannot copy and paste the History. So it's problematic to copy and paste its contents into anything that's being written that cites the contents of the History. So as a research and reference piece it is awkward at best.
