Hello fellow researchers.I am not sure that I am posting to the correct board.I am looking for information on my ancestors.As some of you may know, it is hard to trace african american roots, records were rarely kept. Iam appealing to anyone and everyone who reads this.Here is the information that I have.
Levin Darnall or Darnel was listed as living in Murderkill Hundred, Kent County Delaware in the 1810 census. Ican't find him anywhere else in any state before then. He was listed on page 15 in the 1810 census as a free negro as well as the 1820 & 1830 census.I believe that he is the father of my gggggrandfather. His son, my ggggrandfather's name is John Darnell, he was listed as John Dornal in the 1830 census w/no page number, & 1840, pg. 089.
I don't know who his wife was or where he was born.I know that John married an Elizabeth Jackson, who was also listed as a F.N. in the census as well.If anyone can help me, I have been doing this research for 14 years and have never gotten past John Dornal, who was born in Delaware between 1812 & 1813.
If anyone can do a look up or help me in anyway, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance for reading this and assisting me in anyway.
