Aberdeen and Matawan on Wikipedia - February 2010 Update

I updated the membership of the Township Council in the Aberdeen Township article at Wikipedia. Check through the article for accuracy and update it with any facts you can add.

Hopefully we can come up with more notable residents of Aberdeen than the creator of the Melissa worm. Maybe we should add Philip Freneau, whose home can still be found here? And Charles McKnight, a pastor at Matawan who was a chaplain during the Revolutionary War? And let's not forget Jim Jeffcoat of the Dallas Cowboys.

Note that there are distinct Wikipedia articles on Cliffwood Beach, Strathmore, Matawan, Matawan Creek, the shark attacks in 1916, and the Henry Hudson Trail. Those articles could use editing. If you feel really creative, Wikipedia lacks articles on Cliffwood, Freneau, and Mount Pleasant. Wikipedia is also waiting for someone to write articles about the First Presbyterian Church of Matawan and registered historic places like Burrowes Mansion and the Matawan Train Station.

If you're shy or unsure about editing Wikipedia articles, add a comment here or send me an email and I'll make the changes for you. If you'd like help in authoring an article, let me know and we'll work something out.
