Hello List,

I have seen some posting pertaining to the Marvel families of the Delmarva area and hope that someone may be able to help me. I am trying to locate my grandmother's & grandfather's lines. She was Eva Marvel (1887 - 1960) and she married Thomas Harvey Hamilton (1884 - 1961). I was told by her sons & daughters that she was from Ridgely, MD. & Thomas was from DE.

I had a written history complied (over 30 years ago) from various relatives -- but it was lost to a fire. I retain just enough memory of it to be my own worst enemy.

Eva Marvel & Thomas Hamilton had 8 children (2 girls & 6 boys). They lived most of their married life in Houston & Harrington, DE, finishing out their time in New Castle with married children. To the best of my knowledge they never owned land but instead rented -- sometimes farms, sometimes homes in town.

For 8 - 10 years of my childhood the family held an annual reunion at Wheeler's Park, Harrington, DE on Memorial Day. The family lines present were Hamilton, Marvel, Short, Bennett, Clendaniel, and others. When Wheeler's Park was shut down the reunion was started up again at the Clendaniel home in Milton, DE or Milford, DE.

Cousins attending were Tom, Jim, Jessie/Jesse, Joe, Thelma, Missouri/"Curly", Lucy, Hazel, Lillian, Pauline, Bill (preacher), Dorothy. They spoke of or in some cases to "Uncle Ebe", "Aunt Bess", Ada.

"Pete" Horace Hamilton was the head of the fire department (Marshal?) in Harrington, DE for many years. He and his wife Laura Porter raised his niece Hazel. "Pete" & Tom were brothers.

I believe Eva had a brother Leroy. My dad spoke of "Aunt Annie" (Eva's sister, I think) and "Mom's Uncle Frank". I think there was an Allmon Marvel listed in her bible. Very nebulous, I know.

Eva & Tom Hamilton, 3 sons, 2 grandchildren, Horace & Laura Hamilton, some Bennett's & some Shorts rest in Hollywood Cemetery, Harrington, DE.

Taking what I remembered & searching the census as they became available, I have pieced together some of the line of Hamilton. DO NOT TAKE THIS AS FACT! I am still at the stage of connecting with anyone whom can collaborate this small segment.

I can find no information on Eva Marvel. The information on Leroy Marvel is used in numerous family trees -- none of which "fit" with my knowledge or memories.

Please, if any of this sounds familiar to anyone I would love to hear from you.

Thank You,
Linda Hamilton Smith
