Members welcome at the Milltown Historical Society!
I have been working on updating the Kuhlthau Family Tree that was prepared in 1964 for the Milltown Tercentenary by Marilynn Catchings. It does a wonderful job of showing the relationships between family members starting with Johann Heinrich Kuhlthau and his 11 children (9 of which continued to multiply in Milltown). Unfortunately there are no dates after the second generation (Conrad, Phillip, William etc.). And of course, nothing after 1964. If anyone is interested I can provide PDF images of the original. I can also provide a family index and GED file. The problem would be how to control updates. I suspect each of us knows some part of the tree, but nobody knows all of it. Any interest? Any suggestions?

Do you have any info on William Frederick Kuhlthau 14 Sep 1873 and his son William Raymond Kuhlthau 06 Mar 1903. The latter William owned Bill's Bar and Grill on South Main Street in Milltown.
William Frederick Kuhlthau was born in Brooklyn 14 Sep 1873 and died in South River NJ in 1945. He was married to Emma Schmider, b 1877 in Germany. They had 2 sons, Arthur and William Raymond.
Arthur (27 Jan 1898-01 Dec 1962) married Angeline Fiorenza, (18 Nov 1911 Italy - Apr 1995). They Had 1 daughter, Marie Angeline Kuhlthau (30 JUN 1931, Newark NJ - 14 JUN 1979). She married Arthur Eugene Vader and had at least 5 children.
William Raymond (06 Mar 1903 - Aug 1977 Somerset NJ) married Gladys LNU and had a daughter Charlotte (b Oct 1927).
In the 1940 census William Frederick is living at 16 Leland Ave in South River with his wife, his son Arthur who is separated, and his granddaughter Marie. Both men are employed doing roofing work.
William Raymond is also separated and living with his daughter in a rented room at 85 S Main Street, Milltown. He is listed as a milk dealer. Also renting a room in the same house is his separated sister-in-law Angeline Fiorenza and her sister. The owner of the house is Clifford Schlosser - the Schlosser owned a milk company.
I have not been able to determine William Frederick's parents.
William Raymond seems to have married Constance Fiorenza, Angeline's sister from above.(14 Apr 1917 - Jun 1987 Somerset NJ)
