Hi - how do you know that Letitia (your #136410991) is a Hallowell and do you know who her parents were?

Mary Scull Joline
I am investigating my Joline family line and there do not seem to be very many of us out there.

I see you added my relative Mary Scull Joline, wife of William Joline and you have some information on her parentage and cause of death.

I was hoping you might be willing to talk with me about her. I would like a tad bit more information to add to my citations in my tree.

You can message me here, or email me at

Look forward to talking with you.

Just transferred memorial to you - I believe families should be together. If you find other family members that I created, just let me know. Enjoy.

RE: Postill Family
Hi - I've found nothing on Richard Postell other than what's in the family bible. It shows his death as 7 October 1851. It also provided his age in years, months and days and through that I extrapolated his year of birth as 1794. The bible doesn't state that he is James Postill's father, but he is the right age and it is James's bible.

John R. was born in Delaware and died in New Jersey. His three brothers are unaccounted for since finding the family in the 1950 Philadelphia census. They are: George Henry, Thomas M. and James Pernell. Dates of birth are: 7 Nov 1850, 30 April 1852 and 22 Dec 1853. Birth dates are from the family bible, but no places are provided. I may have found James Pernell in Shackleford, Texas in 1870, but haven't been able to find out more. The birth places he gave for both parents match my James Postill and Sarah Savin, parents to James Pernell Postill.

They have been a very elusive clan!

Clark - Truitt family
John Clark (1787-1810)and Mary Truitt (1800-1886) are my 3rd great grandparents. I live in Arizona, but visited Sandtown DE about 30 yrs ago. At that time I was unaware of the private John Clark family cemetery. Would you have more information on this family? Thank you. Laura Macferran Kraus

Hi Colleen,
We just returned from the grave of Phoebe Jones Sharpley and her husband Charles E. [Ed] Sharpley. My dad, William C. B. (Barney) Jones used to visit Aunt Phoebe and Uncle Ed when they lived on the Hagley property in the 1930s and 1940s. Would love to connect with a cousin!

Hi Colleen,

Please disregard my edit request for Marian Clark Fields. Another cousin manages her memorial page, and I was able to do a direct edit through her.

Thank you for all the work you do here on Find A Grave, I know our ancestors would appreciate it also!

OMG please delete the previous message from me, lol, puter got ahead of me or was it the cat jumping on my keyboard,lol!

I was going to be adding that info to him, but you beat me to it! I am tangled into that group as my Prettymans webbed into the Marshes and Burtons etc. Like someone on my page left me in a message "any family that has been in Sussex for l00 years is ALL tangled together"!! And OH that is SO TRUE!!

THanks you for the info :)

Cathy Ruddell
Clark/Ruddell & Townsend
Hello Miss Colleen:
First I must say thank you for all the hard work you've done in searching and putting together so many records and family history! Well done and I've learned a lot through your contributions on here.
Maude Ann Clark was the wife of my GGrandfather's (Thomas A. Ruddell) brother William Albert Ruddell. In my search to learn more about Tom, I learned about William which opened a lot of new doors of info. But in my research I've come to a road block and have lost track of what became of William after 1942. I only have a WWII registration card showing his address as "County Farm, Bridgeton NJ Cumberland County". He was in his 60's by this time, no employer, lists no next of kin and then vanishes! Do you have any idea as to what happened to him? I know his marriage to Maude went sour (as divorce is a curse amongst us Ruddell's), but I don't have a clue as to what happened to the poor fellow. No death certificate or record can be found on my part.
Also, my GGrandfather Thomas, married a Rhoda (Stephenson) Townsend (my GGrandmother) in DE. Her parents were Daniel and Rhoda. I am very honored to possess her family bible which is loaded with info on the family. Could these Townsend's be of any relation to yours?
If you could get back to me at your earliest convenience, I would be so grateful. I thank you in advance for your time and look forward to hearing from you! You may also contact me directly through email at Thanks again!

Bonnie, was wondering if we are related. I noticed you are maintaining the memorials for several of my relatives in the DaVault Cemetery in Lee County. I am a great great grandson of Kellogg and Louisa Munsey.

I noticed you have a copy of the death certificate posted with this memorial. May I download a copy and use it in my family records? Is posting it on Ancestry allowed?

Hi, You are quite welcome. It was a notice found while helping Chuck research the 10th and 6th street Union Burial Grounds. Jane

Added by Jane Hamilton on Feb 02, 2014 5:30 AM

Thanks, Colleen, for all your help. Please let me know if I can transfer any memorials to you as families belong together. I will be returning to Millsboro Cemetery in spring when weather warms to complete photographing the cemetery - not quite half completed.

I made the update manually since you left your caps lock on. Now, kindly, do not send me anymore edits, messages or Suggest A Corrections. Thank you.

RE: Marie Amiot
I have read this message & corrected Marie's web page to add her first name & maiden name.
I have walked the cemetery & recorded some of the headstones. There is no info on her at the historical society, where I get most of my info.
When a person passes at the Home & buried in the Home Cemetery, they do not have to provide information to the newspaper. Thus, no info listed on the web site.
If you have information that you would like for me to add, I will gladly do that. Be sure it pertains to her.
Thank you

Hi, I have added Ruth's maiden name to the post.
Am going to transfer it to you. As to the correct Union Burial Ground, there were two with close to the same name 10th St Union and 6th Street Union.
At the time I was helping another researcher with the one Union and it was extremely confusing.
