Yes, I grew up in Dover and am familiar with Delaware 8. I lived in the NCC area you are interested in for 20 years and saw a lot of changes to roads during that time. Don't know of a Road 8, though. 896 was simply re-routed (at Mt Pleasant) to connect with RT 1 when it was built and the old route through Middletown is now known as Rt 71, I believe. Think it was 896/71 anyway. Knew some Foltz's in Dover but not those you ask about.
