Keywords:Cumberland County, West Jersey Colony, New Jersey, Colonial Period, William Franklin, Quakers, Presbyterians, Theophilus Elmer, Andrew Hunter,
Bernstein finds in an election broadside of March, 1772, from Cumberland County, New Jersey, held in Rutgers' Special Collections, evidence to support an analysis of local factional quarrels and their relationship to colonial political life. While there were no political parties, there were political rivalies and political machines, in this case, represented by Quakers and Presbyterians.
