Biographical Note:

Daniel Tichenor (1748-1831) of Newark, New Jersey was the son of Daniel Tichenor (1704-1776) and Susanna Guerin (1714-1778).  He married Abigail Coe (1742-1826), with whom he had seven children: Rachel (1769-1849), Sarah (1771-1776), Phebe (1772-1777), Isaac Coe (1778-1850), Sarah (1779-1851), Gabriel (1781-1855), and Abigail (1788-1861).  Danielís brother Isaac Tichenor (1754-1838) served as a justice of the Vermont Supreme Court from 1790-1797, was elected governor of that state from 1797-1806, and was a United States Senator from 1815-1821.

Daniel Tichenor served in the Revolutionary War as a lieutenant in Captain Elephalet Johnsonís regiment, and fought in the battles of Monmouth and Connecticut Farms.  Afterwards he became a farmer in Newark, and his family lived in a large house on Broad Street, the lot extending from Tichenor Street to Pennington Street.  The family were members of The First Presbyterian Church.

The executor of Daniel Tichenorís estate was Ashbel W. Corey, and the estate seems to have been divided among Danielís five living children.
