Additional comments.
1. Naugle family
When I was a growing up in Fair Lawn, NJ. I visited this house with my father every Sunday. My parents were divorced so visiting the Naugle House represented a way of learning about my connections to history in time of conflict. I am delighted to see this website acknowledging this beautiful house and the land on which it stands. This house inspired childhood stories and drawings which I still have today!

3. Marker Near the Saddle River
The Naugle House is located on Dunkerhook Road on the south side of the Saddle River.
house is not the correct house our Dad took us by occasionally on Sundays. it was a differnt home in another town. According to our father and other Naugle family members, and according to documents given to me pertaining to our family history, the Fairlawn house was no connection to our family. It is however a lovely home and piece of history and should be preserved in every way. Note To Editor only visible by Contributor and editor
