The Toys of Delaware Genealogy

This is a blog devoted to uncovering the descendants of Daniel Toy and Rose Coyle Toy, who arrived in Wilmington, Delaware in 1817.  In addition to tracing the various branches from 1817 to present, we hope to uncover more information about the family roots in Donegal County, Ireland and specifically Upper Moville parish, which is believed to where the Delaware Toys lived prior to emigrating to Delaware.
