<<Kathy, we correspondended several months ago when you posted your query looking for Jane MyClyment DORRELL, third wife of my Caleb SIPPLE. I have also found in the Kent Co, DE Probate Records 1680-1800 showing a James DORRELL, adm. of Mary DORRELL and Caleb SIPPLE (1781). My curiosity is whether Mary DORRELL and Jane DORRELL were the same person, and if not, what is the relationship since both seem to be referred to in different records (DAR vs. Kent Co probate)as being married to Caleb SIPPLE? Also, who was James DORRELL relative to Caleb SIPPLE? A brother to Caleb's wife, or perhaps a son from her previous marriage to a DORRELL?>>
Hi Ralph, I think I can give you an explanation. There are several James Dorrells in my line. I haven't fully proven it yet, but I believe that the father of James Dorrell who was married Jane McClyment, was also James Dorrell who's wife was named Mary. I believe that the Caleb Sipple mentioned as an executor in the will probate along with Mary was the father of Caleb Sipple who married Jane after her first husband died.
Here is an outline of what I am trying to prove.
