Johannes Adam Apgar : Family Sheet

Birth:       circa 1741
Gender:       Male
Died:       4 April 1815
Notes:       Johannes Adam Apgar was probably the first child of Fritz Epgert and Anna Eva Schaefer, Fritz’s second wife. In 1779, a tavern license was issued to Adam Apgar. At that time, Adam was renting the Cokesbury Tavern, or Hotel, built by John Farley. Later, Adam gave his hotel business to his younger brother, Conrad. He then procured some farm land on Petticoat Lane in Cokesbury, NJ. Eventually, Adam and his wife, Anna Barbara, acquired 250 acres of good farm land in the village of Cokesbury, NJ. It was located just beyond the location of the present Mountain View Cemetery in Cokesbury. With the exception of son John, all of Adam”s family stayed in New Jersey. On 4 Apr 1815, Adam went to the spring to fetch a pail of water. He must have tripped or slipped, because he was found lying face down in the water of the spring. An inquest was held, according to records. It was decided that he had not met with foul play and that his death was accidental. After his death his homestead farm was sold and the proceeds divided equally among the heirs.
