Neff, who says that he is a manufacturer and lived at 744 East Forty-third street, was locked up yesterday. Neff was arrested on a warrant sworn out by M. Bruce Anderson, 1151 East Fifty-fifth street, proprietor of a cleaning and dyeing shop. Anderson said his wife left him last summer and Neff and a man of the name of Nicholas Devereau learned of this. Neff, he declared, approached him with an offer to produce signed statements from several men reflecting on Mrs. Anderson. Anderson said that Neff wanted $100 for the “evidence” and made so many attempts to sell it that he finally bought it for $27. The husband investigated the reports, meanwhile filing suit for divorce. He says none of the men named in the statement could be found. The case came up in the Circuit court, and Neff did not appear. Anderson said that he obtained his divorce on other testimony.

Now Anderson has procured a warrant charging Neff with selling false evidence and the former Mrs. Anderson will testify in support of his charge.25

Amy Polly Pierson1

b. circa 1730
FatherWilliam Pierson2 b. 1 Apr 1706
MotherElizabeth Howell2
Birth*Amy Polly Pierson was born circa 1730, daughter of William Pierson and Elizabeth Howell, at Rosemont, Hunterdon County, New Jersey.2 
Marriage*Amy Polly Pierson married Joseph Reading, son of John Reading and Maritje Ryerson, on 26 June 1753 at Hunterdon County, New Jersey.3
(Heir) WillIn Joseph Reading's will dated 10 November 1806 at Amwell, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, Amy Polly Reading was named as an heir.4 
Reference*Reference: The relationship between William Pierson and Amy Pierson has not been verified with primary data. However, some secondary sources and circumstantial and onomastic evidence suggest this scenario may be correct.

Amy (PIERSON) and Joseph READING named their oldest son William and the name William did not exist in the READING family prior to this. Also, they named one of their sons Pierson.

In William Pierson [Jr.]'s will, Joseph READING is one of the witnesses, Thomas READING is one of the executors, and George READING is one of the men who made the inventory. I believe they are brothers, the sons of Gov. John READING. Also, in his will, William [Jr.]'s surname is spelled PEIRSON, and, he says his mother's name is Elizabeth PEIRSON, his brother's name is Lemuel PEIRSON, his wife's name is Ann, he mentions only one child Ely and says Ann is Ely's mother, and he and his brother Lemuel are blacksmiths.2
