I hope someone can help me place Ann Eakin, the wife and longtime widow of Henry Steele, an innkeeper of New Castle, Delaware who died in 1827.
Ann was born in Delaware (according to census records) ca 1783. I do not know her parents or siblings. She had three sons and at least one daughter. The sons are Henry Steele (b. ca 1810), William E. (b. ca 1815), and Richard H. Steele (b. ca 1827).
Census records in 1830, 1840, and 1850 list her as head of house. By 1850 she has moved from New Castle to Wilmington. I have no record of her after the 1850 census.
I would like leads to Ann's possible parents and siblings and to her daughter. Thank you!
