    • "Thomas was a farmer, a blacksmith and possibly a carriage builder. His home occpied one side of the Sugar Loaf Road where it joined Jockey Hollow Road. AccrossSugar Loaf Road stood his son, Joshua's smithy and two buildings which were used as a carriage factory. This is according to archealogical work which as done on the site for the restoration of the buildings when the site was added to the Historical Park. Thomas and his family were occupying the house when the surrounding territory was used for the encampment of the American Army at Jockey Hollow in 1777 and 1779-1780" Source: US Dept. of Interior - Morristown National Historical Park, Morristown, NJ Dec 24, 1934

      "There was living in Morris County, New Jersey, during the eighteenth century one, Thomas Guerin, who was born about 1713. According to family tradition he was a French Huguenot coming to America as a boy or young man. It has been said that he could trace his ancestry back to DeGuerin, Count of Auvern and Duke of Aquitaine during the reign of Emperor Charlemagne."
