Daniel Toy (1786-1832)/Rosanna "Rose" M (1780-1878) Coyle residing in  (Upper?) Moville, County of Donegal, Ireland to State of Delaware in the United States, arriving from Nova Scotia on the Schooner Mary Ann in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 19 Sep 1917.

The family consisted of Daniel Toy born 6 or 7 Apr 1786 in perhaps Desertoghill, County of Donegal, Ireland; his wife, Rosanna "Rose" M Coyle Toy born 16 Aug 1870 in perhaps Aughnish, Donegal, Ireland with 2 boys, Cornelius Neal Toy born 18 Feb 1813 in perhaps Muff Parish, County of Donegal, Ireland  and James A Toy born 8 Dec 1816 perhaps in Donegal County, Ireland.

It is believed that Daniel and Rose were married in Muff Parish, Church of Ireland, County of Donegal, Ireland on 11 Oct 1811.

Daniel's parents names are thought to be Alexander Toy of Scotland and Jane O'Neill of Muff Parish, County of Donegal, Ireland married on 16 Jul 1785 in Muff Parish, County of Donegal, Ireland.  The records for their marriage and birth of Daniel and brother thought to be Alexander thought to be born 27 Oct 1792 were last known to be at the Presbyterian Church, Parish of Desertoghill, County of Londonderry, Ireland.

When the family of Daniel and Rose settled in Henry Clay Village/Brandywine Village/Christian Hundred/Wilmington, Clay County, State of Delaware area, Daniel worked at the gunpowder factory, founded by Eleuth?re Ir?n?? du Pont (1771-1834), the Brandywine River Mills which became the largest maker of explosive black powder in the United States.  He died in an explosion in the dust mill on 25 Aug 1832.  He left his widow, Rose and children, Cornelius Neal, James A, Ann, Jane, Mary "Maria", and Daniel.

Would like any records to confirm birth dates, place of birth, and marriage of all parties named, as well as their ancestral/descendant lines.  Any photos of gravestones, documents, etc. would be greatly appreciated related to the family.

Signed, Tuesday (my forename is Tuesday)
