Hi Carol. Yep.Been in the library a half dozen times or so.Ran the card file, the church docs cabinet, and the NCC gen-books.Now working on the Kent county collection.Visited several cemeteries; White Clay (Newark) and St. James Newport), Union Hill and Longwood (Kennett Square).
My line goes from Kenton to Mill Creek, to Kennett Square, to Unionville, and I now live in Oxford (ChesCo).Several Quaker linkages (women who shamed their families by getting "married by a priest")... ;-)) ... but mostly the line seems to have been M.E. (baptisms, et al.)
I wanna go to Kenton this winter, when I get a break from the contracting gig.Looks like the family came from Little Creek Hundred; western extreme next to Maryland line.William Taylor and Thomas had farm properties in LCH and Duck Creek c. 1868 per the Beers map.Almost next door were several Hazels.The 1815 marriage doc for Sam and Ann was also signed by William Hazel (or Hazell).I believe that they may have been the kids of Samuel M Taylor m/to Ann Howard in 1815; and Hazel's family nearby.Think I've found him in the 1820 and 1830 census data in LCH, with kids of the appropriate ages.Looks like he and Ann had 3 boys (William, Sam and Thomas 1816-1820) then 4 girls (1820-1830).Possible sibs to Ann (or boarders, farm help, etc) in the records.
