Dey House - Washington's HQ Preakness, NJ
Dey House - Washington's HQ Preakness, NJ
Brief history of the house used by General Washington, built by Dirck Dey, husband of Saartje Toers, daugher of Thomas Laurenson Toers. Their son, Theunis (Thomas) Dey, was a colonel in Washington's army. The Dey House: George Washington's Headquarters at Preakness!

On July 4, 1780, George Washington arrived from Ramapo with his army at Totowa, where he spread out his troops, while he established his headquarters in the handsome and spacious residence of Col. Theunis Dey, at Lower Preakness.
The Dey House was on the road leading from Laurel Grove cemetery westerly and northwesterly toward Lower Preakness and Mountain View, of being about four miles west of the Paterson city hall, and about two and a half miles from the Passaic river at the cemetery mentioned.

Early and Mary Granger house on Navy Street, Brooklyn, NY
Early & Mary Granger House - Navy Street photograph taken in 1927 -- No way to confirm absolutely (as with the Carll street house, where we are certain of the exact location), but it is very likely that one of these small dwellings was Early and Mary's residence in 1853. – Contributed by Russell Granger, Nov 2008

Early Granger, b. 1790, pastel on canvas
Early Granger, b. 1790, pastel on canvas
The image area of the painting is 23.5" by 19.5". It is hung with Early's cane across the top of the frame in eyehooks. The cane is likely the same mentioned in a Brooklyn Eagle newspaper article on his 90th birthday celebration. The cane measures 33.25". The painting was kept in a farmhouse attic for years, and is in good condition.

The painting is as "washed-out" looking as it seems in the photos. A note from my grandfather, kept with the painting states that it is pastel on canvas. It also states that Early Granger's hair was white, his eyes dark brown, and his complexion "fair". It also states that the house pictured was on Springfield Road in Jamaica, Long Island. - Courtesy Ian Williams

Federal Cavalry - 4th New York Cavalry crossing the Rappanhannock River in Virginia abt 1863
Federal Cavalry - 4th New York Cavalry crossing the Rappanhannock River in Virginia abt 1863
Status: Located; Charles Federlichner was serving in this unit at the time the picture was taken. The regiment, also known as "The 1st Regiment," "The German Cavalry," "Dickel's Mounted Rifles," and the "Lincoln Greens" was detached with its brigade (Pennock Huey's) in Maryland during the Battle of Gettysburg. The first colonel of the regiment was Christian F. Dickel, who subsequently resigned on September 10, 1862. Dickel had owned a riding academy on 43rd Street in New York City.

The major battles the regiment participated in were:
Harrisonburg, Cross-Keys, Port Republic, Bull Run, Berryville, Fredericksburg, Barnett's Ford, Grove Church, Trevilian Station, Deep Bottom, Front Royal, Kearneysville, Kelly's Ford, Chancellorsville, Beverly Ford, Upperville, Gettysburg, Brandy Station, Morton Ford, Oak Hill, and Mine Run. The 4th, comprised of an ethnic diversity of Germans, Frenchmen, Italians, Brits, and Hungarians, was Calvary Corps Commander, Alfred Pleasonton's least favorite unit. Pleasonton distrusted anyone not born in America, and constantly demoted or eliminated them on this sole and discriminatory criteria. It was said that orders to the regiment "had to be issued in six or seven different languages." Although surrounded by controversy and criticized for its unreliability, there is a monument to the unit on the field at Gettysburg honoring their service.

Frank Mather in his World War I uniform.
Frank Mather was a sapper in the Royal Engineers in the First World War and served on the Somme. He was too old for the Second World War but did join the Home Guard, which was formed as a last line of defence in Britain during the second war, composed mainly of the elderly, and the young and those on reserved occupations for the war effort. He was a lieutenant and used to bring unexploded incendiary bombs home, which had fallen when he was on night duty. The last one he brought home was an incendiary with the addition of an explosive head timed to go off a minute or two after the magnesium had ignited and people were about to smother the bomb with sand.

George F Granger Home
George F Granger Home
House was owned by George F. Granger, Sr., 49 North Maple Avenue, Park Ridge, NJ. The original house had a screen porch that wrapped the front and left side. The driveway and garage were separate from the house, in the back. The home was where Jim and Joan Turse lived as children with their parents and grandparents. The Turse family slept in the attic, and the Grangers had an apartment on the second floor. There was only one bathroom - located between the second floor and the attic stairs (note shade in corner window). No one had much privacy! The car shown parked in the gravel drive is parked approximately in the location of the original water well on the property. The Yeo family lived nearby in the house to the left rear, with the columned porch.
