I am doing some Permar family tree research for a friend. His Permar lineage is traced to Andrew J. Permar (b. 1848) son of Catherine (last name unknown) (b.1815).This information is taken from the Delaware 1860 census.Andrew had a brother James and they moved from Smyrna, Kent, Delaware to Wilmington, New Castle, Delaware (and are buriedthere).They have also been noted around Bethel, Delaware in their early life.This family doesn't seem to appear in the 1850 census and therefore, I am finding it difficult to connect the family with their Father.In the Permar boys youth they were farm hands and later became carpenters (1874 Delaware directory).
Do you know if the James Permar of Caroline County, Maryland could have been either a grandfather/great-uncle to these males.These Permars were very close in proximity, passed on the male names: James, Andrew, Edward, Thomas, and Henry.
I am hoping that you may know of a link.Any help you can provide is hugely appreciated.
