Dear Linda...My researching has also led me to, possibly, some ancestry in Delaware. Please check the postings in the "Bittle" forum. An important consideration, is race..whether we like it or not. Even the Mormon establishment must post the race of an individual...because so many immigrants , of all races, for whatever reason had taken surnames of "others". This fact often confuses a researcher...but, must remain relevant to one's ancestry search. I hope I've said "this" right.. as my intent is not to offend anyone. Sincerely, Douglas Whitfield Biddle.
