      Dinah Van Wicklen Probasco
      Birth: 1734, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA
      Death: Dec. 20, 1807, Piscataway, Middlesex County, New Jersey, USA

      The year of birth is approximate, being inferred from her age 73 years at the time of her death according to the grave stone transcription records of The First Reformed Church.

      Daughter of Simon Van Wicklen (1692-1754) and Geraldine Couwenhoven (1705-1754).

      Dinah Van Wicklen married John Probasco on August 18, 1753 in Somerset County, New Jersey. An electronic search suggests that they may have had one child:

      Jacob Probasco (1779-1839)

      That hypothesis finds support in the following facts:

      1. Priscilla Smalley Probasco is interred in Lot 391 immediately adjacent to those of John Probasco (Lot 393) and Dinah Probasco (Lot 392);

      2. Priscilla Smalley's grave stone transcription in the church records states that she was the wife of Jacob Probasco; and

      3. An electronic search shows that a Jacob Probasco (1779-1839) married a "Pricilla Smalley."

      Further research is needed to verify whether they had children and whether Jacob was their child. . . .
