bullet  Birth Notes:

1880 Census entry for daughter Sarah says her father was born MD, mother born PA. (Harford Co, Election District 5, Stearns Precinct, ED 44, page 2, line 15)

Robert Wiggins b PA or MD, d 31 Oct 1842 Lancaster Co PA. (From http://home.adelphia.net/~peagleson/research.html)

There is confusion about where Robert was born. There is definitely a Robert Wiggins of the correct age in Kent Co, DE in the 1800 census. Kent Co DE and Kent Co MD are adjacent to each either, and neither is very close to Lancaster Co, PA.
