  • Notes 
    • According a history of Paterson, Post was born on the east side of the Wesel road in the neighborhood of the parsonage of the First Reformed Church of Passaic. At the time Washington marched through Acquackanonk, he ordered the bridge destroyed to delay the British, and John H. Post was deputized as one of the party to destroy it. Rather than destroy the bridge, John Post organized his neighbors on the morning of 21 November 1776 into a working party, and an the following day they dismantled the decking of the 297 foot-long bridge and stacked it on the Passaic side of the river. He was also at the battle of Monmouth, and his widow, who died in the one hundred and fifth year of her age, was a Revolutionary pensioner. Among his children were: Metje, who married David Cogh; Louwerens, born Dec. 25, 1796, familiarly known as Larry Post; Johannis; Sally; Sussanna, besides eight others.
