I am searching for information on a Peter DONOVAN who married an Elizabeth CLENDANIEL. They had a son named James Henry DONOVAN (b.2 April 1865 d. 21 Jan 1947) who married Naomi Angeline WILKINS (b.22 Jan 1860 d.24 Sept 1927)
Naomi's parents are from Broadkiln Hundred, SUssex Co., DE and I believe the Donovan's and Clendaniels may have been from there or Cedar Creek Hundred, Sussex Co., DE.

If anyone has information on this line I would much appreciate the help! Thanks!

I believe we have made contact several months ago.....
my great-great grandparents were Eliza Donovan and
Harrison Custer. You were going to send me some
family information on the Donovans and then I had a
major Windows problem and lost your address.
If you are the person I am looking for, please contact
Thank you!
