Notes for Captain Jonathan Condit
He was captain of militia, Second New Jersey regiment, in the Revolutionary war. He died Aug. 29, 1823. Rev. James Hoyt, former pastor of the First church of Orange, in his Church History, says of Jonathan: "He was a conscientious church-goer, and in his old age, being poor and having no vehicle but an ox cart, he and his wife rode regularly to church in that. Not caring to show it, he would stop as he entered the village, hitch his cattle to a tree, and thence walk to the House of God."7
