    2. David E. Cann
    3. Hello folks, and welcome back to RootsWeb's newly upgraded list system. If you are receiving this post it is because you are still a subscriber to this list, even though things have been pretty quiet due to a number of issues lately. The lists are back now, and I believe you will like the improvements that have been made. The most obvious improvement is a new RootsWeb login system, which you will find at the following link: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/setupmail Only one account per person is needed, and once you have created it you will be able to organize and manage all of your list subscriptions in one handy location. Like anything new there will be something of a learning curve in the beginning, but I really think you will like it for the new security and personalization features for your list subscriptions. And last but not least, please note my email address as List Owner immediately below this message and following my name. Also note the "List information" link below that, which will take you to the information page for this list, where you will find information to help you subscribe, unsubscribe, and some other things based on the current status of your new log in account. I welcome you back to the list, and look forward to working with you in the future tracking down our elusive ancestors. David E.

Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Mary and her family: Mary Ann CUDDY RICHARDSON was b. 10 May 1829 in Abingdon, VA to parents James CUDDY (1804-1860) and Maca COUNTESS (b. 1800). She was the eldest of 13 children including, Mary Ann; John G.; Emily or Emma; William M.; Frank or Francis; Alvis; Harriet; Hiram; James Lee; George Washington; Peter; Asa Jasper; and Harriet CUDDY. She moved to Ohio with her parents in 1839 and then three years later to Chariton Co. MO where she married Daniel RICHARDSON in 1855. The couple had two children, Sterling Price RICHARDSON and Emma F. RICHARDSON VANCE. The family moved to Kingman KS in 1883 and to Salem OR in 1889 and finally to Hennessey, OK in 1890 where she made her home for many years. In 1907 she moved to her daughter's home and died 17 Aug 1920 in Dover, DE at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. T. VANCE. Her obituary lists two brothers, Peter CUDDY of Kingman, KS and Asa J.

John and Julie had two children, John Alexander Raikes and William Thomas? Raikes. Both parents died about the time of the US Civil War. Julie had a brother, Alexander Laws.

You did not say if you had been to the area or not, but in searching thecemetaries there is a lot to find.

In the census (Kent County, Murderkill hundred (South) of 1860, George is listed as "Geo W Shockley" with his wife Hester J Shockley...he's 25, she's 28...establishing approximate dates of birth of 1835 and 1838 respectively. In that Census, Joseph is shown as a 2 year old boy and living in the house appears to be Hester's mother (Joseph's maternal grandmother), Nancy Bonsall . (It looks like "Bonsel" but research has confirmed the family's name was "Bonsall"...they just didn't know how to spell it, as they were not able to read or write so the census taker took his best shot). I can find nothing definitive for George OR Hester before or after. In the 1870 census, Joseph appears as an 11 year old with a 6 year old "Lottie" Shockley, living with Nancy (census spelled it "Vonsler" but I'm sure that's a best sho! t spelling of "Bonsall" spoken by someone no doubt with a heavy accent. So my question is..where is George and Hester??? Ironically, there's another "George Shockley...born in 1825 who also married a "Hester", but she was born in 1838 or later. This is not the same George Shockley, but the Hester he married appears to be a cousin to my maternal grandmother. I know that George was never in the army during the civil war; however, did work for the Army, training horses for the Union Army Calvary. My grandfather, Frank Daniel Shockley would always take camping trips with his sons (including my father, William Edward Shockley) down to "Bowers Beach", Delaware, which was where he spent much of his own childhood visiting his grandfather George. Frank's father, Joseph died at the young age of 62 in 1919 in Philadelphia, but grandpop continued to visit the Bowers Beach area, as well as frequent "Bonsall Lumber" in Glenolden, PA, which had to be the family of his paternal ! grandmother, Hester. Between 1650 and 1700, it appears two (2) unre lated Shockley Families settled in Delaware...very near one another. Since I can't find any George and Hester (other than obvious wrong ones or unrelated African American Shockley's)...I'm having trouble connecting George to either one. There are marriage certificates, birth certificates, Death certificates for ALL of the aforementioned Shockley's EXCEPT the "George" and "Hester" I need. I had a cousin named Thelma Shockley. (I believe she was the daughter of Joseph T Shockley JR (my great uncle). In the 1980's she was very active in the genealogies of the Shockley Family, but I'm sure she's long gone now, having been born before World War I.

    1. [Kent Co DE] Benjamin and Sarah Ann RICHARDSON Little Creek Hundred...near Smyrna, Kent County
    2. Ella Coleman-Artz via
    3. Hello! I'm hoping anyone out there might be ale to confirm whether or not any of the following speculations are correct. I am open to being wrong and would appreciate any input what-so-ever. 1) I wonder if Benjamin RICHARDSON (born between 1770 and 1780) in the 1840 census Little Creek Hundred was the husband of Sarah A RICHARDSON, born about 1805 Delaware and found in the 1850 census Little Creek Hundred with only children Sarah, Benjamin and John. 2) I wonder if Sarah A RICHARDSON is the same Sarah found in the 1860 census living in Duck Creek Hundred with her daughter Sarah/Sallie GLANDING, son-in law William C, grandson Wilbert and an 8 year old Frank WRIGHT. 3) I wonder if Sarah RICHARDSON came to Philadelphia, PA in time to be listed in the 1870 census with Joseph H RICHARDSON (son?) to help him to take care of his 3 younger children just before or after the death of his wife Emily in 1868. Emily was the daughter of William and Mary BURROWS and was born in Delaware. Joseph remarried a Mary Martha McCLENEHAN in 1873 and then eventually moved to Burlington, NJ in time for the 1900 census...so if this is the same Sarah then I wonder if.... 4) Sarah RICHARDSON went back to Delaware to live with her daughter Sarah GLANDING again in time for the 1880 census in Smyrna, Kent County. Particularly since Sarah RICHARDSON is not living with her daughter in the 1870 census, also leading me to believe that it is her living with Joseph RICHARDSON in Philadelphia in 1870. Again, I could be wrong. 5) Could Sarah RICHARDSON have gone back to Philadelphia to live with Benjamin RICHARDSON (The same Benjamin from the 1850 census??) to either be taken care of or to help take care of his children as his wife suffered and died from a prolonged illness. A Sarah RICHARDSON (age fits) was buried from her son Benjamin's home...this Benjamin...July 1888. I'm looking forward to any replies! Ella

    3. Welcome and congratulations David. My daughter and I have been researching the Taylor line for many years. We have had no luck in Kent Co.  My gggrandfather was born April 4, 1813, Kent co. listed father as Nathaniel.  They moved to Ohio in 1823. That is where all trace of Nathaniel ends. Henry continues on to Illinois, and we have no records of Nathaniel's spouse or Henry's siblings. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are trying to set a trip to De. to see if we can find further information for him. We are also willing to share any information, that would help others on this line. Thank you,  Mary Taylor Vanderheydt Welcome and  congratulation David. My daughter and I have been researching the Taylor line for along time.  On Friday, July 18, 2014 11:35 AM, David E.

I look forward to meeting and working with you all in the coming months, and also to sharing our mutual enjoyment (or is it "obsession?") for genealogy.
