H. Jeanne Altshuler,
▸ Page 61 shows a copy of "Portion of 'Inventories of Goods' of Derick Banta taken or destroyed by the British," which is credited to the New Jersey State Library. Within the section of the inventory for 1778, there are entries for "a Large house burnt" and "a Large Barn burnt."
Althshuler's text appears to contradict this date, stating that the house burned as part of a raid on June 24, 1780. However, since the year 1778 is shown in the original document, I have accepted 1778 as the year the house was burned.
