I am a direct descendant of Dorrance Benjamin Clapper, born about 1822. He appears on the 1840 census living in Philadelphia. He married Barbara Ann Aregood in about 1839. They had six children, two born in Philadelphia, two born in Camden, NJ and two born in Freedom, Beaver County, PA. He died in 1893 in Pittsburgh, PA and is buried in Highwood Cemetery.

Do you think there is some family connection here and that one of the Dorrance girls married a Clapper and named her child Dorrance Benjamin Clapper??

I am at a loss as to where he really came from. Help!
