    Fenton/Finton in 1830 New Jersey Census:
    *Only Daniel Fenton had a daughter 15-20 which was Sarah's age.

    Fenton, Daniel, Trenton City, Hunterdon Co., page 460; age 40-50 with 1 son 15-20, 1 daughte r 15-20*, 1 daughter 20-30, and wife 40-50. [In 1840 Daniel, age 60-70, lived in Trenton, Mer cer Co., NJ (page 91) with wife, 50-60, and 2 sons and 1 daughter, 15-20. Note: Mercer Co. fo rmed from part of Hunterdon Co. in 1838.]

    Daniel was born 1775 and died in Trenton Feb. 14, 1845. His wife was Margaret (or Elizabeth G ardiner). The two sons are Charles Wesley Fenton and Daniel B. Fenton. The daughter is uniden tified. Daniel had a brother Benjamin who had several children, none by the name of Sarah. Da niel`s father was James. [By Tom Jones ]

    It is a somewhat curious circumstance that exactly opposite to the Raum home Mill Hill's onl y publisher did business for some years. This was Daniel Fenton, whose little establishment w as at what is now 317 South Broad Street. On the site of the late Dr. Herman Schafer substitu ted for the small stone house, a brick dwelling and drug store about forty years ago and sinc e his death it has been occupied by Fred A. Kemler, the tailor. Mr. Fenton's personal histor y is somewhat obscure. Dr. John Hall in his History of the First Presbyterian Church refers ( page 202) to the "Christian Circulating Library established by the excellent Daniel Fenton i n 1811," indicating our publisher's favorable repute. It is unfortunate that Dr. Hall did no t give us fuller information about a man of whom he evidently had some knowledge. Raum's Hist ory" mentions the "stone house" as still standing in the early 70's.
