Thanks for the tip, but I already found that index before I posted my message. Evidently the Delaware will isn't in that index, or the name it's indexed under isn't recognizable. I need someone who is familiar enough with Delaware resources to figure out what the source of this will is, because I don't have any idea, and then find out what it says. Either there must be another source of will records (perhaps mixed in with deeds), or perhaps some kind of abstract, maybe in a book of Delaware history or genealogy. The only will I have found relating to Ebenezer is in his father's will, in 1769. Someone must have found another will with the list of children given in the original message. Unless it's in Bucks County, Pennsylvania or some such place, it must be in a Delaware source, presumably in New Castle County. It certainly doesn't seem to be in (West) Virginia.
