      Biography by Marsha Faulk, November 2, 2000
      Timothy Halstead moved with his family to Elizabethtown, New Jersey in 1721. He is credited with being the ancestor of the New Jersey Halsteads and a number of those in New York. While at Hempstead, he made extensive purchases of land in the Kakiak Patent, a tract of some 35,000 acres in what is now Orange County and Rockland County, New York, which extended as far north as Haverstraw, New York and south into what is now Bergen County, New Jersey.

      One of the two original grantees died in 1714, and his executors sold his half to a group of men, most of whom were from Hempstead, Long Island including Timothy, Jonah and Jacob Halstead (Timothy's sons)
      associated with 14 others.

      The settlement was first called Hempstead, sometimes Kakiak, then New Hempstead, now Ramapo, then Orange ( now Rockland ) County, New York. All of Timothy's sons except John went there to live; Caleb later purchased a 400 acre tract of land " lying in the south side of Elizabeth Creek ". on the south
      shore of Staten Island Sound, near Elizabethtown, New Jersey. It was probably the area thaat came to be known as Halstead's Point.

      Death: also listed as 14 April 1735
      Elizabethtown, Union County, New Jersey
