I am a descendant of John RENNELS, Sr., who was born 17 Feb. 1781 in Sussex County, Delaware. He supposedly moved to Madison County, Kentucky with his widowed mother after his father was killed by a falling tree. He was married 25 July 1805 in Madison County, Kentucky to Nancy Ewing Bland. Her maiden name in the marriage record is given as Ewing in one place and Bland in another. She was born 14 Jan. 1787 and died 26 Dec. 1867. They lived in Lawrence County and Vermilion County, Indiana before settling in Hutton Township, Coles County, Illinois where he died 12 Aug. 1866. I suspect his parents to be John and Elizabeth (Betsy) Rennels, but have no records on them. Can anyone help? Thank you.

I am researching a cluster of ROSS families from the 1800 Sussex County, Northwest Fork Hundred, DE census. One of them are the parent(s) of my GGG Grandfather, William ROSS, born there 1800/1803. At least two of the families migrated to Ross County, OH as the Unice (Eunice, wife of Thomas) is buried in Good Hope, Fayette, OH. The listing from the census is as follows: Robert Ross, Micheal Ross, Shadrack ROTTEN (WROTEN), Archibald Ross, Clement Ross, Unice Ross, Thomas Rotten, Job Rotten, Gibson Ross, Hughett Ross, William Ross, Jr., William Ross, Sr. Interested in any and all references. It is rumored that in the 1810s or so, there was a wagon train of about 50 families that came from the DE/MD area (my MARINEs included) to the Ross County, OH area.
