|Richard Sullivan ||David Winfield jackson|
I inherited materials from my ancestor John P. Sullivan Jr. which include material relating to David Winfield Jackson. According to a eulogy included, the two were longtime partners, living on Minetta Lane in New York City.
I have photos that may be David but there is no writing on the back, as well as an obit from a newspaper for Nathan Bryan Whitfield.
If you are interested i can email you photos to ID, or copies of the newspaper clippings.
|sr/ks||RE: Hi Andrew|
Thanks for your reply. Short-sightedly, I had not gone back on your grandma's line to see the connection to DelCo PA. That makes sense now about your grandpa being laid to rest in PA. You can't imagine how excited I had been, because my direct line Starkey/Storkey ancestor was actually buried in Glen Mills, so I was getting interested! Plus, my grandpa was born in Wilmington DE, and ashes scattered in MD, Turner's Creek. I may have been jumping the gun but the similarities were ringing bells, even if illogically.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see your tree- I have a free ancestry membership but it doesn't go so far as to allow me to see public trees.
For whatever it's worth, my direct line is a bunch of William H Starkey/Storkeys (my grandpa was the 5th, and I am back now to the 2nd). There were apparent brothers to Wm. II named Chris and Abram/Abraham born around 1800. At that time, my line was still all about Delaware County with folks in Aston and Birmingham Twps. I don't know if I can get back one more generation and find any links to MD or more to DE. If you have more to share you think I should know, by all means please do. I don't know where to go with this with you for now, other than to say if you cross paths with any of these gents Wm., Chris or Abram, I hope you'll keep me in mind. Your thoughts welcomed.

I am working on my Storkey/Starkey family which has beginnings in Delaware County. Today I found your memorial for Leonard, and it got my wheels turning. I wondered why a man born in MD and died in DE would choose to be buried in Delaware County. Does his family have a link to the area? Maybe there's a connection between your Leonard and my clan, and I thought it might bear exploring. Hope to hear back.
