Levin Rollison & Other Rollison Info.

Hi Guys,

I seem to have more luck finding Levin Rollisons' family and other lines than I do my own. I thought I would post some things I have found. Maybe it will help someone.

On the 1880 Kent Co., Delaware Census for Kenton Hundred,(T9,#117,pg.336-A):

Rollinson, Levin L./W/M/25yrs(ca. 1855)/Relationship: Servant/Single/Occupation: ?? in Mill/cannot write/born in MD/Father & Mother born in MD.

He was at the top of the page. The family he was living with was at the bottom of page 335B. It looks like the Head of Household was S.S. Hopkins?/W/M/39yrs./ Runs a Grist Mill. His family is also listed.

Here are some Newspaper Abstracts that I have:
