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!

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 :)

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 cathyr.45@gmail.com Thanks again!

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?

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.

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.

Kansas Clarks
Thank you for all of this information about the Clarks. William Clark (17604950) had three children (Albert Dill Clark, Sarah Ann Clark Whitby, and my great-grandfather, Thomas Roe Clark) who moved to southeast Kansas in the 1880s or 1890s. I had begun to despair that I would ever go farther back than William, because I had been told by more than one of Mom's cousins that there had been a courthouse fire in Delaware and the records further back were not available. Thanks again for all of the information and pictures you posted, but I am curious about where all of this came from.

My mother (Helen Ruhamah Thomas) had told me for years about a trip that her mother (Emma Jean Clark Thomas) and grandfather (Thomas Roe Clark) took to "Baltimore" to visit Clark relatives, but she doesn't remember if she ever knew the names of the cousins they visited. (I am pretty sure that they took a train to Baltimore to visit relatives in Maryland and Delaware, but am guessing that it happened before Grandma graduated from high school in 1910.) I am sure that I now have information on some of the people my grandmother visited.

Thanks again for the information. If you have any questions about the Kansas branch of the family, please let me know. billh

Marie Amiot
I will do some checking on Marie before I add the information you requested. I have her maiden name as Wollen. Was she married before the Amiot?
I work with the Historical Society & they have a book from the Illinois Masonic Home with information on the people that are there. Let me do further checking & then I will add your info. Please be advised, I do more digging before changing information. Once I have checked this out, I will transfer to you.
Thank you for understanding.

I just looked at the Pennsylvania, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985 for Trevelyan Townsend and it is as I put it. I also made a enhanced picture since the names are similar. if you can tell me where your info came from I will be glad to change it. ron

if you would like to see the picture I have I will gladly send it to you but would need a email address
