Looking for information on surname DELBRUGGE/DELBROOK (and various spellings) in Allegany County. William (Frederick) DELBREWER and wife Catherine were in 1850 census, with Fred(9) and Mary(3). Vital records from St. Luke's Church show a birth of Marie Catherine DELLBRUCK, Nov 1847 to Fred William DELLBRUCK and wife Sophia Cath. LAMBERT. I think this is the same couple. There was also a Wilhelm DELBROCK married to Catherine DECK, 1861, from St. Lukes. Other Delbrook's appear in 1900 census, Mt. Savage.; and in Somerset Co., PA across the border. If anyone has 1860/70 census - could you look to see if these surnames appear? Or in other vital records Thanks!!

We have identified three CREUTZBURG families living in Barton, Allegany County, MD. All three emmigrated from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Germany in the early 1850's, and were among the original settlers of Barton.

Valentine CREUTZBURG married Martha MEERBACH in Germany. Their first son Ernest Z. was born there. Their daughters Caroline, Johanna and Emma were born in Barton. Ernest and Caroline never married. Johanna married James P. SHAW (1883) and Emma married Conrad LUTZ (1884).

John CREUTZBURG married Anna Maria SCHRAM before coming to the United States. Henry, their first son, was eight when they came to Barton in 1853. Henry married Matilda COOPER in 1869. Elizabeth (Betsie), John, and Harmon (Herman) were born in Barton between 1854 & 1859. Betsie married Thomas GANNON, John married Conrad's sister Maggie LUTZ (this marriage ended in divorce), and Harmon married Clara BARNES. Betsie and Henry had 11 and 7 children respectively.

Casper CREUTZBURG also married a Martha (surname unknown). They had one daughter, Elizabeth, who appears to have been born in Germany. She married Frederick FEEVY.

This research has only begun. Information on any of the families mentioned above would be greatly appreciated. Be sure to visit my website for more information and some pictures.

I am looking for any information on William Thomas COLEMAN. I am descended from his son of the same name. His son was born on Feb 15th, 1855 in on Maryland's Eastern Shore. His son married Matilda GARRETT (born Feb ?, 1862, died Sep 30th, 1928). Her father was George GARRETT and her mother's name was "Milkey" I don't know where the Garrett's were from, possibly Garrett County?

Searching out surnames of William KIRKPATRICK, arrived approx 1862 in Lonaconing, Md, Allegany Co. from Glasgow, Scotland. William was born approx. 1839 and his wife, Jeanette b- 1841. Would like to know the surname of his wife.Children were: John KIRKPATRICK, B 1860 Scotland died Md?, William KIRKPATRICK B-1861 Scotland died Md? Ann KIRKPATRICK B-1862 Scotland died 1940 in Turtle Creek, Pa,Allegheny Co. Jennette B-1869 Lonaconing Md, Allegany Co. Andrew KIRKPATRICK B 1875 Lonaconing died MD?, Mary KIRKPATRICK B 1878 Lonaconing -died MD? and Berlnea KIRKPATRICK, B 1884 died MD? Ann KIRKPATRICK married Philip HOPBELL Born 1862-Lonaconing Md., who was the son of John HOPBELL, from Hesse area of Germany. I suspect that William came to Lonaconing for work as a miner and was probably a miner in Scotland and that he had relatives arriving in Lonaconing before his arrival, since that area was heavily populated with Scotch-Irish immigrants.
