Philip Quick Jr. was born about 1788-1792 in Oxford Township, Sussex Co. New Jersey using deductions from the 1830 and 1840 Census  and his death in the 1860 Census shows he died, aged 72 May 1860 in Independence, Warren Co. New Jersey. Philip is usually listed with the “Jr.” moniker in land transactions to separate him from his father, Philip Quick Sr. and concrete proof of his parentage is in a deed late in his life to his brother Robert.
"Philip Quick Jr. to Robert Quick. This indenture made the ninth day of November in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and forty three between Philip Quick Jr. of the township of Oxford County of Warren and State of New Jersey party of the first part and Robert Quick of the said township of Oxford in the County of Warren and State of New Jersey of the second part witnesseth that the said party of the first part for and in consideration of four hundred and ten dollars good and lawful money of the United States of America to him in hand well and truly paid by the said party of the second part at and before the sealing and delivery of these presents the receipt whereof is herely fully acknowledged and the said party of the first part therewith fully satisfied contented and paid has given granted bargained and sold aliened enfeoffed conveyed and confirmed and by these presents does give grant bargain tell alien enfeoff convoy and confirm to the said party of the second part and to his heirs and assign forever all that equal undivided one third part of the real estate which descended to the party of the first from his father Phillip Quick deceased (Philip Quick Sr. the patriot died Oct 10th 1843 at 93 years of age) lying and being situate in the township of Oxford County of Warren and State of New Jersey butted and bounded by lands of George Titman, Henry Winters, Michael Banghart, Peter Hopler, Robert Quick, John Hamon and others and containing about one hundred and twenty five acres of land” … "signed Philip Quick Jr. Received and recorded November 10th, 1843” 
Philip Jr. was married twice and the genealogy of his offspring has caused some confusion. His first marriage was to Catherine Mackey on July 11th, 1811 by Justice William Ribble. Catherine Mackey was most likely a daughter of John Mackey and Maria Catherine Minnegar. John Mackey was the eldest son of Capt. Joseph Mackey and Margaret Wilhelm. John Mackey sold all of his lands in what was then Oxford, Sussex Co. New Jersey and moved to Scioto, Pickaway Co. Ohio in 1818. The Mackey’s owned adjoining land next to Philip Quick Sr. and his father Peter Quick Sr.  John Mackey and Catherine also had daughters named Elizabeth and Margaret the same as Philip Quick Jr. and Catherine. Capt. Joseph Mackey was the commander of the Sussex Co. Militia in the Revolutionary War and commanded Philip Jr.’s father Philip Sr., uncles, and grandfather Peter Sr.
Catherine Mackey is mentioned in the following land deed. “Philip Quick Jun. & wife to John Axford. This Indenture made the twentieth day of March in the year of our lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and twenty two by and between Philip Quick Jun. and Catherine his wife of the township of Oxford County of Sussex and State of New Jersey.” Catherine died before 1827, possibly around the time her daughter Margaret Ann was born April 1st, 1826.
Philip married second, Elizabeth “Betty” Banghart born abt. 1800  daughter of Jonathan Banghart and Catherine. Methodist Circuit rider Rev. George Banghart was Elizabeth’s uncle. Elizabeth’s family info is spelled out in a deed in 1830.
“Philip Quick Jr. & wife to Benjamin T. Hunt This Indenture made the eighteenth day of October in the year our Lord eighteen hundred thirty between Philip Quick Jun. and Elizabeth his wife of the Township of Oxford in the County of Warren and State of New Jersey of the …. one hundred and sixty-eight acres of land more or less bounded by lands of Philip Quick (Sr.), Elizabeth Quick, Peter P. Campbell, Michael Banghart, the heirs of William Banghart, George Titman, and Benjamin Titman to the to the equal undivided north part of which said Elizabeth Quick late Elizabeth Banghart is entitled as one of the heirs at law of the said John Banghart deceased.”
The following month Benjamin T. Hunt sold the land to Michael Banghart. “Benjamin T Hunt and Wife Margaret Ann Hunt to Michael Banghart jr. Nov 20th 1830 Land “being in the township of Oxford in the county of Warren and the State of New Jersey butted and bounded as follows It being the farm of which John Banghart late of the township of Oxford aforesaid died seized said to contain one hundred and sixty eight acres of land be the same more or less. Bounded by lands of Philip Quick, Peter P. Campbell, Michael Banghart, The Hers of William Banghart, George Titman and Benjamin Titman. All being the same land conveyed to the same Benjamin T. Hunt by Philip Quick Jr. and wife by deed dated the eighteenth day of October AD 1830 see the receipt thereof in Warren County Clerks office New Jersey in Book 8 of Deeds folio 197.”
The two real estate transactions were done on the behalf of Philip Quick Jr. by Benjamin T. Hunt as Power of attorney. “Philip Quick Jun. of the township of Oxford County of Warren and State of New Jersey to make and appoint Benjamin T Hunt of the Township County and State aforesaid my attorney for me and my name and to my use to demand sue for and receive of any person or persons, all debt dues and demands whatsoever with real or personal which are due and owing or of right belonging unto me at this time and to use all lawful means for the Recovery thereof and to compound and agree for the same and to do all other acts as I myself could do if personally present. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this ninth day of November in the year of our lord eighteen hundred and twenty nine. Sealed and delivered in presents of Jacob T. Dernberger, Jacob Titman Philip Quick Jr. (Seal)……Received and recorded 24th August 1830.”
Philip Jr. and Elizabeth also named their first son, Benjamin Hunt Quick born Aug 4th, 1829 after the aforementioned Benjamin T. Hunt in the deed. Philip Jr. is also listed as a witness to the distribution of his father in law Jonathan Banghart’s estate. “Philip Quick Jr., with seven others, signed for a distribution of $787.14 in funds for the heirs of the John Banghart estate on June 27th 1831” Elizabeth later received 16 acres of land of her father’s estate on Aug of 1833 as “Elizabeth Quick”

On January 31st, 1832 Philip Quick was going through Bankruptcy proceedings with his creditors and was accused of fraudulently disclosing his full estate to Henry Hopler and was placed into custody by the Sheriff.
On February 22nd, 1832 Philip was released from custody and released to “George B. Ribble a Judicious and responsible freeholder under his hand and seal of all his estate real and personal of every description which he had in the world in trust to and for the use of his creditors, except such wearing apparel for himself his wife and children and such implements and tools of his trade as are allowed to him by the said Judges not exceeding ten pounds in the whole and except also one bed and bedding and one cow and filed in the same in the office of the clerk of the court and the court being satisfied that the conduct of the said Philip Quick” Note: This Philip was definitely not Philip Q. Quick. The 40-year-old Philip Quick Jr. and the 26-year-old Philip Q. Quick was not married yet. It is safe to say this case is dealing with Philip Quick Jr. Philip Quick Jr. probably had legal trouble brewing for some time. In 1825 he made his brother Robert his assignee who had the ability to receive title and property rights of land. “Philip Quick Jur. Appeared, made the like prayer and application, the same exhibit being made like interrogatories asked and the like assignment filed the court order alike rule in all things and appoint Robert Quick his assignee”
