1. [LDR] Hains Grove [1]
I checked and there is a record for Francis Hains for Hains Grove in 1730. So either the name was changed or they sold the land and moved away. In a message dated 1/1/2013 10:57:24 A.M.

Vera, If you are not a "member" of, Family Search gives free access to lots of records, and is an excellent starting point. You will find Hursts (and Husts and Hurts) in MD and DE there. You need to register at the site, but there is no charge. If you haven't been to the site recently, you should go. Here is the link: _ ( Best of luck, Andrew In a message dated 1/7/2013 8:14:35 P.M.

4. Re: [LDR] Wives of Peter Waples (1708/9-1785) [1]
Hi Norah- Please, no apologies. I was just making the point that you shouldn't assume "Swamp Tract" was near Burnt Swamp. The Mason & Dixon surveyed only the east-west line between MD & PA and the north-south line between MD & DE. Les Riggin pointed out that the state line at the bottom of Delaware was surveyed by others (John Watson and William Parsons of Pennsylvania and John Emory and Thomas Jones of Maryland surveyed it 1750-1751) and it is properly known as the Transpeninsular Line. I, like you, gr
5. Re: [LDR] Wives of Peter Waples (1708/9-1785) [1]
There was no Dutch government at NY in 1692. The English took over the Dutch colony in 1664. The Dutch briefly regained their colony in 1673, but had to return it to England at the signing of the Treaty of Westminster in November 1674. I read elsewhere that Waples petitioned the Whorekill Court on 2 September 1692 for a license to keep a ferry across the Indian River near his house. The Whorekill (Hoorkill or Hoorenkill) was the old Dutch name for the place that is now Lewes, Delaware. Liz J On 4 January

Any list members descend from, or researching John BW Adkins (1840-1916), who lived outside Snow Hill. John married twice, both were Timmons ladies. He had 1 son & 4 daughters. He also had an adopted son, John Thomas Adkins, "Tom" Adkins (1860-1950), who lived most of his later life in Berlin. Tom in his young life was an apprentice farmer & in the 1870 census on John BW's farm was John Thompson. Mr. John B.W. Adkins died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. M. Sturgis, in Snow

Hi you know if Layfield's daughter Mary married Severn Ruark? One of their grandsons was named Thomas Layfield Parker. I have Thomas and Sarah Layfield in my notes as her likely parents. Also, any idea which "Elizabeth Ruke" is mentioned in this will? Perhaps Elizabeth, widow of Levin?

10. [LDR] thanks, everyone [1]
Thanks everyone on your take on the word yeoman. I think Theophilus Simonton (I) was proud of the fact that he farmed his land, himself. So many came from Europe who had been nothing but share croppers, they did not OWN their land, only had the right to work it, someone else actually owned it. They must have given a percent of what they raised to the person who owned the land. Those who came to the colonies wanted to own their own land.... My husbands ancestors came from Germany to the Republic

15. [LDR] John Layfield Parker query [1]
Pam and others, Following your inquiries abt the Ruarks and the Layfields, I caught your mention of John Layfield Parker as Severn Ruark's grandson. Do you know a bit more abt that John Layfield Parker's family? William Parker (ca1746-c1797) & his wife, Mary/Molly Hill, of Worcester Co. are my ancestors through their dau, Nancy Parker (1777-1828), who marr (27 Feb 1797) Thomas Nathaniel Williams (1770-1827), also of Worcester Co. I have just the slimmest knowledge abt the Parker family; but would lik
16. Re: [LDR] Hurst [1]
Vera, I must have missed a message about the three VA brothers. Although I have little information on the Hursts, the name early on is indeed Hust and I think you are having trouble tracking them because they moved from one water community to another. At one point Joseph Hurst (d Dorch 1726) , son of John Hurst, the first of the line in Somerset County, lived on South Marsh Island in Kedges Straits, which apparently was disputed whether in Somerset or Dorchester County

Hello all, I am new to this website. And looking forward to expanding my knowledge of the history and families of the lower Delmarva peninsula. It appears that most of my ancestors came to the eastern shore (Va and MD) and Delaware in the 1600s so Delmarva is my primary area of interest. I have found out about a lot of my ancestors but right now I am most interested I am interested in finding out information about the elusive Browns in Dorchester, Somerset and Sussex counties in the 1600s and 1700s.

18. Re: [LDR] Transpeninsular Line [1]
Hi, Just have to jump into this one. My great grandfather, William E. Smith, left that area when he was about 18. This was about 1885. He never could really say where he lived, and I couldn't figure that out. Sometimes he said Maryland; other times he said Delaware. One census had it listed as Unknown. The one article I read about it called it the Transpeninsular Line, but it said the locals called it the Mason-Dixon Line. Joni -----Original Message----- From: lower-delmarva-roots-bounces@rootswe
19. Re: [LDR] Ancestry & [1]
Hi, Mike, Yes, you are right about Ancestry. You are automatically subscribed if they do not hear from you. They do let you know a bit in advance. And you have to do that by a phone call, not e-mail. But we did do that once. Then we re-subscribed because it is, as far as I'm concerned, the best place. I have mostly had luck in unsubscribing from mailing lists, but there are a couple that I simply cannot get out of. Delete, delete, delete! Joni -----Original Message----- From: lower-delmarva-roots-

Paul Waples' Piney Point may have been at Indian River, north east of Dagsboro at the end of Piney Neck Rd. DE Hwy Map, rev 2004 shows "Assawoman Willife Area Piney Point Tract". I think this neck of land was/is known as Piney Neck. The Peter, Paul and Mary you mention are children of Wiliam Waples, are they not? According to Runk, William inherited land on both sides of Indian River. On Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 10:25 PM, Miller's Choice wrote: >
