Surnames: Wolcott aka Wilcott
Am seeking more information on Caleb Wolcott, Sheriff of Kent Co., DE in the 1840s, particularly, a list of all his children (supposedly 10), and info on which child was from which wife (supposedly 2).

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/f/r/a/Melissa-Fra... This is a link to my family tree. I believe that we are related. I am David Woodin's granddaughter. I believe this will be helpful. There are several Wolcotts.

Thank you for contacting me.

As noted in your records, David L. Woodin is a descendant of the prominent immigrant, Henry Wolcott of Windsor, CT, through his son, George Wolcott of Wethersfield, CT.

I am descended from another immigrant, John Wolcott of Watertown, MA, who was a third cousin to Henry Wolcott of Windsor, CT. In this respect, you and I are distant cousins, with a most recent common ancestor in Thomas Wolcott of Tolland, England, who was born about 1500.

The "Delaware" Wolcott line of the initial query to this thread is believed to be from the John Wolcott of Watertown, MA line.

If you have not already done so, you can access much information on the Wolcott family at the website of the Wolcott Family Society, www.wolcottfamily.com. On this site, you can find Alanson Wolcott/Walcott, and other members of your Wolcott line, under the link for "Henry Wolcott of Windsor, CT" through his son "George Wolcott".

Caleb Wolcott 1792-1868 and his wife Mary Ann 1801-1847 are buried in the Methodist Cemetery at Dover DE, with their children Emma, 1825-1845, Mary Eliza 1832-1854, and Martina R. 1840-1842, He may well have had a second wife as Mary Ann died 21 years before him, but in 1860 he was living alone in a hotel at Smyrna DE. He had at least 4 sons and one other daughter, one son was named Levin or Levin, born 1823, and one named John Ryder 1835-1908. He is said to have been a veteran of the War of 1812, so you might see if you can find veterans records.
