Edward J. Dailey replied to Frances Rupp Sanchez's discussion Old Mill Road
"Could it have been in Highland Park? There's an article here from the April 1910 New Brunswick Times newspaper about closing Old Mill Road. Not sure if it's the same you're looking for, but thought I'd pass it along as it may…"

"That is pretty interesting. I had not heard of that before. The paper looks like a good source of info. Are they available on line or did you go the library to look at them? Thanks, Kathy"

July 25, 1913 murder at Michelin Plant

I found this article - while I was looking for something else - about a brutal murder in front of the Michelin Plant. Interestingly enough, this is the second brutal crime I found that happened at the plant. I know it's not a pleasant piece of Milltown history, but I thought I'd pass it along. Has anyone heard of this crime before?"Jilted Lover Kills Woman Who Would Not Wed Him, Shoots Man and Eludes Officer in Pursuit."…See More

Edward J. Dailey replied to Historical Society of Moorestown's discussion Is this old mill in Milltown?
"Check out this map from 1878. http://mapmaker.rutgers.edu/HISTORICALMAPS/NJ_1878.jpg If you zoom in to the Moorestown region, you will find the "Milltown" I think you're looking for. Ed"

Edward J. Dailey replied to Historical Society of Moorestown's discussion Is this old mill in Milltown?
"I wonder if the caption is refering to another Milltown in New Jersey? I have seen older maps of NJ with a couple of "Milltown"s on them not even close to Middlesex county. Perhaps it is an unincorporated Milltown? From what time period…"

Profile Information

Hometown:
South Brunswick, NJ
Did your parents/ grandparents live in Milltown? If so, what were their names?
No.
About Me:- Tell us about yourself
I teach American history at the secondary level and am currently working on another history degree. My wife and I have new born twins and are very excited about raising them here in Milltown. I wish I had more time to explore Milltown's history; this site is much appreciated!
What is your interest in Milltown history?
Everything really, but specifically I'm interested in the other side of town, closer to Ryders Lane, where my house is. I have been told by neighbors that my home was one of the first on or near Washington Ave. and was originally a farmhouse. I'm currently trying to piece together its history by looking at census records and collecting the artifacts that I find within and outside the house.
