Hit a brick wall, can anyone help
I am searching for my grandmothers fathers family. I am looking for a John Durnell, he was born between 1812 & 1813, he was born in Delaware or Maryland and he married a lady named Elizabeth Jackson. John could have been mulatto. I am not sure, he moved to Chester County New Garden Township, near Delaware.
I have hit a brick wall, if anyone can help, please email me directly at email@example.com.
They had the following children, all of who were born in Chester County, PA.
In the 1850 Chester County Census, the following were listed:
John Durnell 37yrs., race: Black, laborer, place of birth: Delaware, his father's name may have been Levin Durnell
Elizabeth 35 yrs., black, place of birth listed as DE/PA.
Sarah E. 6 yrs., Female, black, attended school
There were more kids listed after 1850, will get them later.
