Also present in the collection are documents such as promissory notes issued by the State of New Jersey to army enlistees, land petitions, and general returns of stores and provisions issued to the army. In addition, there are notes and correspondence concerning the genealogies of the Barricklo, De Klyn, FitzRandolph, and Lalor families; as well as a small selection of miscellanea.
