Hats off to Elaine for locating Percifer HOOK!
Elaine, I think you gave me a good hint when you sent me the 1840 Census in
which Percifer HOOK is enumerated:
Percifor Hook 1840 Federal Censis Index; Delaware, New Castle County, City
of Wilmington; Roll 704_33, Image 339, Page 170; Images Online 33 of
104 [Ancestry.com listed the wrong image]
1 M of 15 and under 20
1 M of 40 and under 50, 1 F of 10 and under 15, 1 F of 15 and under 20, 1F
of 40 and under 50
I played around in the Genealogy.com censuses when I got home from work,
and your preliminary data looks to be validated by my find of 1870:

[His age jibes with the 1840 data, and also that which I guesstimated.]

So, Percifor appears to have died somewhere between 1870 and 1880. I think
we definitely need to see the DE census for 1850 and 60. Our Abraham is
Lyn, do you and Walter have any further data that might help us?
