I am trying to discover what head's of families were in Delaware prior to 1821. What New England Darling's moved to Delaware and when?
I have the following names but am unable to connect any of the individuals, except for a line of James'.
Jamesb. bef 1769m/ Jepener GriffithKent County Johnb. abt 1785Delaware Lydiab. abt 1794Delaware Maryb. abt 1772Delawarem/ John WalkerKent County Steven b. abt 1810Delaware Jamesb. bet. 1800-1810Delaware
The James Darling line that I know of is very limited: 1st Jamesb. abt 1708Kent Co., DE m/Unknown 2nd Jamesb. abt 1732Kent Co., DE m/Mary (nee?) 3rd Jamesb. abt 1754Kent Co., DE m/Rachael David 4th Jamesb. abt 1787Kent Co., DE m/Rachael Curtis
My Darling line starts with Asa Darling b.1841 d.aft 1900. It appears he was an orphan or apprenticed out very young (10)with the Harren family in Murderkill Hundred, Kent County, Delaware. I need to work from earlier hoping to back into the right family. Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Sue Prettyman
