1. [LDR] Pollitt Cemetery [1]
Does anyone know if there is a picture somewhere of the Pollitt Cemetery that Mike transcribed? A woman in Oregon would like a copy, if one can be found. Elizabeth **************************************See AOL's top rated recipes (http://food.aol.com/top-rated-recipes?NCID=aoltop00030000000004)
2. Re: [LDR] A Note E.N. Vallandigham's "Delaware and the Eastern Shore" [1]
Mr Carter Thank you for that. I am putting those books on my shopping list. I have a unquenchable lust for Delaware History, considering that is where my Coleman-Gordon-Lewis-Friend-House line began . And the mention of "McDaniel" also caught my interest, as it is a McDaniel who maintains our House Tree on Rootsweb and Ancestry.com. Originally House was Haus in 1660. Now I also am interested in my Edmonds and Alderman who left the area and ended up out at Oregon City. Then there is my Leave
3. Re: [LDR] William West Sr. [1]
Wilbur wrote, >>I'll accept the carvings on the stone as the best information available, with the one exception of William West's death date. Only the year, 1813, is shown and that has to be an error because I have his will and probate papers and his executors filed inventory and other probate papers as early as March 1812. The estate was finally settled in 1813.<< The DE probate index lists estate proceedings of a William West Sr. 1800-02, of probably another 1812-13, and of two others before 1820. A

Lorine, I certainly don't have any proof what children belonged to which mother. Heaven knows, I've searched a plenty!!! But, the same type of argument that you used for Henry being the child of Francis, could be used for George. He could be named for his father and who knows, even a grandfather or uncle??? I would vote that both Henry and George were the sons of Francis. While we're on the subject is there any new evidence to say that Frances was a Pennington or a Graves?Nancy Hamiltonnbhamil@msn.c
5. [LDR] A Note E.N. Vallandigham's "Delaware and the Eastern Shore" [1]
I was pleased to see that Mr. Buckingham is scanning Edward Noble Vallandigham's wonderful 1922 book, "Delaware and the Eastern Shore," for inclusion on his site, as it has been a favorite of mine for many years. The full title of the book is "Delaware and the Eastern Shore--Some Aspects of a Peninsula Pleasant and Well-beloved." I first encountered it on a friend's library shelves in the early 70s. Shortly thereafter I bought a modern reprint and just recently found a very good early edition in a rare
6. [LDR] Worcester Co., MD, Orphans Court [1]
Hello, The abstracts in my Worcester Co., MD, Orphans Court Proceedings include all genealogically relevant information. Where it just lists the people involved, as in the Ball/Mills listings, they were just filing an account. I did not include this fact just because the actual account is not given in the record, just the fact that they filed one. You should always check the original record but in this case there is no other information there that would be helpful. In many cases like this one the expl
7. [LDR] Mckernan [1]
Richard Check onthe new site I told you about..A Hugh McKernan is born in 1822 in Tyrone spelling it McKiernan.There are more than one but that date could fit. He marries in 1841.Actually two High McKernans marry in 1841.Was youre married? You can pull the record at their site but it costs 10 Euros which is maybe $13.If it is him it is cheaper than usinga researcher.

For those who are interested in such things, Abergaveny is a market town in Monmouthshire, southern Wales, dating back to Roman times; sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to Wales."

Hi! My brick wall is the wife of Daniel HEARN of Sussex Co.,DE. Her name was Elizabeth"Betsy"WILSON. Daniel HEARN was a teacher. All I know about her was "Betsy" was his student at some point. By 1810 they migrated to Washington Co.,OH. She might have been his second wife.I have nothing on a first wife. He had 15 children.I don't know how many were hers. Thanks for any help!

10. [LDR] Orphans Guardians [1]
Some Orphan's Court Records say that an orphan chose his guardian. Other records do not say who chose the guardian. How is a guardian chosen for these orphans? Is the guardian usually a relative? Does the court choose the guardian or does the guardian offer to take the child and raise him?

11. Re: [LDR] Orphans Guardians [1]
They often continued to live with their mother (they were orphans if the father died, regardless of the health and well-being of the mother), and I have a few of my own who, at age 14, chose their mother to be their guardian. I do not know how the court felt about that, as women weren't people. I have seen one will where a woman named her two daughters as joint execs., and one was disqualified because she was a married woman. Elizabeth **************************************Check out AOL's l
12. Re: [LDR] Chandler Family [1]
Eldon: Thank you for your reply. Typically, I don't write or gather information for the sole purpose of publishing books for sale as it just isn't profitable. I often perform research on various Eastern Shore families [Northampton & Accomack Counties] based upon questions received from friends and members of GHOTES as was the case with the Chandler family. Sometimes, I locating these answers if more difficult and involved than expected and over 50 to 100 pages of data is accumulated. Because my research
13. [LDR] "Abergaveny" and the JACKSON family [1]
I am asking this question of John Lyon on the list site because I suspect numerous people will find the answer useful. In the December issue of "Shoreline" from the Nabb Center, there is a great profile of Samuel Jackson, the progenitor of the Delmarva Jackson line (and my gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather.) John, can you pinpoint where his land "*Abergaveny*" was located? Jim Moore Wilmington
14. Re: [LDR] Hurlock high school yearbooks - 1919 - 1922 [1]
Barbara, Does your high school have a special name for the yearbook? If so that would help in any search. For example, the year book for Hillsborough High School in Tampa is the Hilsborean. Jack W.

15. Re: [LDR] Probate [1]
Gerry, He may have died Intestate. This means without a will. I don't see anything in the paragraph you included that says he had a will, just an estate, which you would have whether you had a will or not. You need to look, possibly in the court records, for who was made administrator if he did die without a will. Jack W.

16. Re: [LDR] Orphans Guardians [1]
Thank you all for your response to my question. Judy your explanation is quite complete but I have another question in regard to the following. Vol. 1 of the Worcester Orphans Court Proceedings lists an Elizabeth Mills as the appointed guardian of Robert and Samuel Mills (of Robert). Levi Ball was one of the Sureties. Later (p. 256) Levi Ball & Elizabeth, his wife, guardian to Samuel Mills. (p. 257) Levi Ball & Elizabeth, his wife, guardian to Robert Mills (of Robert) I rarely have seen a husband an

Thanks John and I agree. With all the research that I have done I could never make any connection to Somerset. I have no idea of what source the researcher quoted. Thanks.

Hi, After speaking with some of my family, I have learned that there are some Hurlock High year books in the Hurlock Library as well as there are some in the Maryland Room at the Dorchester County Library in Cambridge. My neice also mentioned that she does not think that there are year books for years you have mentioned.

Yearbooks can be a great source of information and great pictures. I have been looking for a particular yearbook from Washington College. This is the reply I received today from the librarian. If by chance you have one laying around, please let me know. I only need some information. Gerry I checked the archives and we do not have the Washington College Pegasus yearbook for the 1922-23 academic year. We have copies of the 1909 and 1910 yearbooks and then the next yearbook we have is from 1927. You are we
