    Ege, "Pioneers of Old Hopewell" pg 75:

    We have very little data concerning the family of Capt. William Golden by his first marriage, except their names and date of birth, as recorded in the family Bible, now in possession of William F. Golden, Esq. who resides on the homestead which has descended from father to son for so many generations. (date of writing, 1902). (The Golden family farm located near Hopewell in Hunterdon Co., NJ.)

    ----------------------------------------

    From will of Joseph Sr. of Hopewell: "I give to my son William Golden that westerly part divided by a line as far as the run whereon he now liveth, he paying legatee to his sisters."

    Captain William Golden died February 10, 1816, aged 73, and is buried in the old family plot on the farm near Hopewell purchased by Joseph Golden Sr. on 23 April 1726.
