Some Pencader Presbyterian Church Deaths & Burials


This past weekend in my blog post "52 Cousins" Joshua David  married Sidney Ellis on 1 February 1798.  We saw based on their Last Will that there were no mention of children being born to this union and we found no children. We closed the blog post with the the deaths of Jousha and  Sidney (Ellis) David.  

Today we will see that their death dates were recorded in a book entitled "A history of Pencader Presbyterian Church (Welsh in origin) of Glasgow, Delaware, by Henry G. (Henry Garner) Welbon, , 1904-1999, 1936,  Newark? Delaware, page 51. These dates are also recorded on their tombstones which still exists today. 


The death of Joshua David, Sydney (Ellis) David and their niece Sarah Ellis are all recorded on page 51 of this book.

52 Cousins~The Marriage of Joshua David


Joshua David was born abt 1745, a son of Evan David, Jr. and Mary Haughey. At the time of his birth the family was living in Pencader Hundred, Newcastle County, Delaware. 

Joshua David and Sidney Ellis were married on 1 February 1798 in the Pencader Presbyterian Church, Glasgow, Delaware. 

We know that the 1800 Census for Pencader Hundred, New Castle, Delaware show the family composition thusly:

1 Male, age 26-44 [Joshua] 

1 Female, age 26-44 [Sidney]

2 males under age 10

1 male, age 10-15 

1 female, under age 10

2 female, age 10-15

However, It is believed that Joshua and Sidney had no children or they all perished very young. Joshua in his undated Last Will and Testament named his wife, Sidney; several brothers, Evan, Elisha & Hugh; niece, Sarah Ellis and nephew, Hugh David; but, NO CHILDREN. Sarah in her last Will only named her niece, Sarah Ellis.
