Hi...thank you for responding. As to the books, I ended up by buying all of them, so I can look up just about anything now in Kent Co DE.

Susanna who married Isaac Mason had a maiden name of Harmisson/(Harmansen?) David Roe transferred from the Burlington MM in NJ to marry her in 1713 in the Duck Creek Quaker Meeting, DE. He was dead by 1717, leaving her and his child who later died, 2000 acres of Fairfield. Susannah married Isaac Mason by 1719, and their first son, Joseph, was born in 1722.

Another deed with your John Tomlin is:

John Crippen's widow, Elizabeth, remarried to John Harmenson;

this above is probably Susannah's brother and would explain a deed from Isaac Mason & his wife..

These families are involved in the Nicholite movement, as Joseph Nichols (m Mary Tomlin/Tumlin of Nathaniel) purchased the land that Thomas Wharton had bought from Susanna.
