Looking for info about James LAFORGE or LA FORGE.  He was born in New Jersey about 1833, according to the 1860 Census, when he was living  in Wantage.  

He married Permelia VAN GORDEN, daughter of Jeremiah VAN GORDON and Martha PATTERSON, in Colesville in 1856.  She was born in 1837 in New York, and was a descendant of Martin VAN GORDON and his father Daniel VAN GORDON who lived in Minisink in Revolutionary War days.

James and Permelia had a son, William LAFORGE, born in 1857 in New Jersey.  He married Elzabeth WHILSON or WILLSON, daughter of John WHILSON and his wife Frances C. (WHILSON) , in 1881.

Thanks very much for any assistance!
