Loder Connections

Here's another family who I think had connections to our TAYLOR family:  LODER. The possible clues include:
  • A witness to the 1792 will of George Taylor, probably a son of Jerononemus Taylor, was James Loder, who also did the inventory. I think there were two James Loder's around this time:
    • son of John Loder; this James Loder died around Oct 1792. 
    • son of William Loder who married Sarah Rae. The RAE name is curious because there was a Hunterdon County deed in 1815 from Alexander Rea, Richard Hixson, and William Taylor Jr, executors of George Rea, decd, to Daniel Potts, all of Kingwood, Hunterdeon, NJ. 
  • It should  be noted that Samuel Loder, among others, brought a court case against all the Summers which involved alot of money and which the Summers lost.  It should also be noted that Samuel Loder's wife Rachel Gardner was the sister of the wife of John Summers Jr, Jane Gardner.
  • 1822 deed, Hiles & Hixson to William Taylor, husband of Hannah Loder, daughter of James Loder (the one who died in 1792), formerly of Sussex, now of Amwell, Hunterdon, NJ
  • According to History of Sussex and Warren Counties, New Jersey: with illustrations and biographical sketches of its prominent men and pioneers by James P. Snell, published 1881, page 535, Samuel Loder was a tailor by trade - this would have been around 1833 in Belvidere. I bring this up because it's the first place I've seen the tailor profession even mentioned, especially for a family that might have associations with our TAYLORs.
So does anybody know of any other possible Taylor-Loder connections?
