About the Henry Whiteman line - Jacob Whiteman 1799 in Delaware

+3 votes
107 views
I am descended from two successive Henry Whitemans of Mill Creek Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware - 19th Century.  The father of Henry Sr., was Jacob Whiteman who bought a 196 acre farm there in 1799.   Where did Jacob come from ?  Who was his wife ?  When was he born (I have that he died in 1826 - Will in N Castle DE)...

Any assistance is appreciated.

Does any of this help?  There is a birth record for a Jacob in1750 with the name spelled differently, but could lead to further research:
