My Great Grandfather, Emery K. Purnell born Maryland Aug. 1853, wife Mary maiden name unknown born in Delaware Sept. 1860, children, Annie, William, Charley, Lorenzo, Mary Larry, Amanda, Dallas, Emery, Clara, Elsie. All born late 1800's in Sussex Co, Delaware Broad Creek Hundred. As you can see, my Great Grandfather was born into slavery times, so some records appear to be hard to recover. Any help would be welcome. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and possibly still through out Delaware, relatives with any information, please contact.
