I'm trying to find the family of Pamelia/Camelia/Anne Killingsworth.  We have plenty of records after her marriage to William H. Hoffman Bangs (sometime before 1860), but can't find anything prior to that.  Family records and some secondary sources say her maiden name is Killingsworth, and she would have been born around 1832, probably in Delaware or Pennsylvania (based on census data) though possibly a neighboring state.  In her entry for the 1880 census her father is listed as born in New Jersey and her mother as born in Delaware.  I've looked at FamilySearch records for Killingsworths in Delaware at around that time and have found a few families, but she doesn't appear to be in any of them. Her first name varies a lot in the records we have, complicating the search.  I'm not very skilled yet at looking for records beyond the "easy" stuff (e.g. FamilySearch and Ancestry), so any suggestions would be welcome!

One census record has her born in Delaware, but all the others say she was born in Pennsylvania, so that may be more likely.

Not so far.  Found a 1915 New Jersey census record that lists an Ephraim Walker that could be him, but that's it.

Actually, looking at the handwritten record I'm not absolutely certain that "Walker" is correct... could it be something else?
