GEORGE CADMUS.-The Cadmus family are numerous in Hudson and Passaic Counties, New Jersey. Cornelius Cadmus (Cadmuys) was living at Aquackanonck (Passaic) as early as 1718, for the records of the Hackensack Dutch Church register the fact that in April of that year Arientie Cadmus, of Aquackanonck, and lde Sipp, of Bergen, were married at Hackensack. It is more than likely that Dirk (Richard) Cadmus (who Mr. Winfield thinks was the first of the name in Hudson County) was a son of Cornelius, of Passaic. This Dirk was at Bergen before 1718, for on June 20th of that year he married Jannetje Van Horn. Early in the spring of 1731 he bought of John McEvers and wife a tract of 380 acres of land at Tappan (now in Bergen County), extending from the Hackensack River to the Paseack River. The deed describes him as "Dirck Cadmus of the towne of Bergen." Some or all of it lie soon after sold to the Blawvelts, of Tappan. He seems to have remained in Bergen, for in November, 1740, he bought lands of his father-in-law, Van Horn, at Constable's Hook. He died November 8, 1745. He was beyond doubt a Hollander, but when lie emigrated or what part of that country lie hailed as his birthplace are questions which the early records do not answer. By Jannetje Van Horn he had issue of the second generation Rutgert, Catrina, Frederick, John, Cornelia, and Joris (George). He must have had other children.

Joris Cadmus (2), born at Bergen, married (1) Jannetie Vreeland and (2) Jenneke Prior. She died January 29, 1795, and he died April 2, 1781. Their issue of the third generation were Jannettie, Jannettie, Jannettie, Joris, Metie, Dirck, Casparus, and Jenneke.

Casparus Cadmus (3), horn at Bergen, August 16, 1770, died September 23, 1845, married Cathlantie Johns Dodd, born January 27, 1768, and died October 11, 1822. Their issue of the fourth generation were thirteen: Sara, Joris, John, Casparus, Jannetie, Seeltie, Martha, Martha, Michael, Richard, Cathrina, Andrew, and Eleanor.

Richard Cadmus (1), born November 22, 1803, died October 16, 1873, married Cathaline (daughter of Michael de Mott), died, and had issue of the fifth generation, one of whom was George Cadmus, the subject of this sketch.

George Cadmus (5) was born April 12. 1840, in Bayonne, N. J., where lie still resides. He was educated in the schools of Bayonne and Bloomfield, in his native State, and has spent his active life as a farmer. He now lives on the old family homestead at Bayonne. In politics he is a Republican, and in every capacity lie has displayed marked ability and won for himself the confidence and respect of his fellow-citizens. He married, first, Cornelia B., daughter of William N. Smith, of New Brunswick, N. J., formerly of New York. She was born October 15, 1839, and died in 1867. They had one child, Henry S. Cadmus, born April 311, 1865, died February 1, 1867. Mr. Cadmus married, second, June 11, 1889, Mrs. Lillie A. (Jones) Abbott, of Bayonne, and has two children of the sixth generation, namely: Clarence W. and May.
