    Notes 
    • From History of Queens County: The Mudge family of Long Island traces its ancestry back to 1637, when Jarvis
      Mudge came from England and settled in Boston, Mass. From there he removed to
      Pequot (New London), where he died in 1653. His son Moses, born in 1652, came to
      Oyster Bay and became the progenitor of the present generation. He died in 1729,
      leaving a son William, who subsequently settled at what is now Glen Cove. Here
      he raised a prosperous family and at his death left the homestead to his son
      Coles Mudge, who in turn’ left it to his son Jacob.

      Jacob Mudge married Hannah Titus, and their family consisted of one son and
      one daughter. The daughter, now deceased, was the wife of John Valentine, and
      the son, now occupying the same old homestead, is William Mudge whose portrait
      accompanies this sketch. He was born August 17th 1812. His wife, Martha. T.
      Willets, a daughter of Richard Willets, was an estimable woman, whose death he
      was called to mourn January 1st 1872. Their two sons, William J. and Henry W.,
      are well situated in life. Henry W. was married in 1879 to Jessie C. Jackson,
      and is now a practicing attorney in New York city. His brother William J. is on
      the homestead with his crippled father.

      Several, generations of this family have been members of the Society of
      Friends, and the survivors still live in the faith and practices of that sect.
      Politically, Mr. Mudge is identified with the Republican party, as the successor
      of the Whig party, to which his father also belonged. In the business world he
      is regarded as a successful man, and in the community as a useful citizen.
