Re: Sinclairs in Delaware USA
Hi Lynn --
I was trying in my initial posting not to get too technical or confuse anyone
more than necessary.
I originally wrote MD/PA/DE Sinclair ancestors but edited the MD/PA part out !
The problem was/is the Md /De " Boundary Line War " around Newark , De ( USA
) combined with the "" Wedge " area north of Newark , De which was variously
over time either PA_MD_DE and the uncertain line forming the circular
boundary of Northern , Delaware both previous to the Thomas Pierson Survey
and after ,
depending on the location of the " merestones" .
The other fact that I did touch upon was that Delaware was at one time known
and was in fact the "Three Lower Counties of Pennsylvania on the Delaware
Added to that confusion is the Delaware County breakoff from Chester County
So , when all the above is considered , our early Delaware OR Pennsyvania
ancestors could be in Pennsylvania or maybe Maryland or from/in all three
Now that I have thoroughly confused eveyone , I did not mean to mislead
anyone as to your lines " Roots " , especially since we are " cousins " from
our Sarah Pierson lines .
