But, info about my maternals total about 1/4th of zero. My father Oscar John CARRICO married mother, Marie Viola WATKINS, Cumberland, Md., Oct 1920.

Her father John and I think nm was Patrick WATKINS. Mother was Bridget BURKE. John was a B&O RR Conductor. They lived at 110 Penn Ave., S. Cumberland. Siblings were Kenneth,Edward,Susan and Helen. Bridget's sister, Nora COYLE live nearby. COYLE's were in the grocery business.

Researcher: Ed Danison

Date posted: Tuesday, June 16, 1998

I am Ed DANISON of Gahanna, OH, born in Perry County in 1939. I have been researching my line for about 10 years. My main gap in the line is uncovering the links between certain males in the Flinstone locale during the period 1790 - 1810. If anyone can provide clues to unlock this mystery, I would be greatly indebted.

In the 1800 census, Allegany County, there were four males all spelling their names: DANNISON. Samuel appeared to be was greater than 45 years old at the time. He resided there until his death circa 1824. Three more DANNISON's were on the same census as heads of households, all listed about the same age range (26 - 45) moved to Perry County, Ohio about 1812 - 1817. They were Jarret, John, and Fred.

Based on that census alone, Jarret had the largest brood - four sons under 10, one son 10 - 16, and one male 26 - 45 (most likely himself). In that same family were one daughter less than 10, one 10 - 16, one 16 - 25, and one lady 26 - 45 (most like his wife Martha).

Jarret is not on the 1810 census in Allegany. He is on the 1820 census of Perry County, Ohio, and owned 40 acres near Glassrock, Oh. A deed indicates he sold that property to Jeremiah WILSON Jr in 1838.

From CHAPTER XXVI, History of Perry County (Ohio) compiled in 1889, page 195: " Hopewell township was originally organized as a political unit in 1810. The following named persons were residents of the township as early as 1816 or 1817. John Jonas...Thomas Kendal, Abisha DANISON (my gg grandfather), Jared DANISON, Wm DANISON...Asa Wilson, Lewis Wilson , Isaac Wilson, James Wilson..."

In the biographies of the same history, Jarret's grandson, Hiram reported the following brief history of his grandfather and sire: "DANISON, Hiram, born in 1829, a farmer, Glenford post office, (Hopewell township), OH is a son of the late venerable James DANISON, who came to Hopewell township from Maryland in 1812, when his father Jared DANISON, settled on section fifteen. The sons of this old pioneer (Jared) were William, Jared, Asa, Elisha, and James, the father of Hiram DANISON. The daughters were Elizabeth (Betsey), wife of John WARD, and a Mrs Petty."

Can anyone assist me in understanding the relationship, if any of Jarret DANNISON to Samuel? Is he a son, or nephew? Samuel's will does not mention his brothers, if any, or Jarrett, Fred, or John.

Thank you in advance. I have information on WILSONs in Perry County Ohio and some information on the WARD family, both formerly of Allegany County Maryland.

I am currently trying to search Allegany Co WILSONS 1800-1850. I have a ggg grandmother Aley (Allie) WILSON (b 1802 MD- d WV??) who married Hugh MONTGOMERY in 1821. I am trying to locate her parents. I have extracted all the WILSONS from the census for Allegany Co.

My Allie WILSON MONTGOMERY was listed as head of household in 1860 WV Hampshire Co., Romney P.O. (Springfield area) living next to Worthy MONTGOMERY, my gg grandfather. My g grandfather George Edgar MONTGOMERY was born in Springfield, WV 1868. Perhaps there was WILSON family that moved from Allegany Co MD sometime after 1850 census to WV before 1860 census.

I am looking for information on a Deborah LEATHERWOOD. I assume LEATHERWOOD was her married name. She shows in the 1850 census of Cumberland Md as head of household with a daughter Mary Ann age 5 years. Mary Anne was born June 14 1846. Deborah gives her age in the 1850 census as 25 so she may have been born in 1825. Would like to find a marriage of a LEATHERWOOD to Deborah. Mary Ann married Samuel WICKARD in 1869 but her name at that time was Mary Ann GILMORE. Have not been able to find any information on Mary Ann's marriage to a GILMORE. It would have been in the early 1860s. Both Mary Ann and Deborah died in the 1880s, and lived in Cumberland Md all their lives.

They were members of the Centre St Methodist Church in Cumberland. When I went there they told us that the burial ground next to the church were Mary Ann and Deborah were buried had been paved over for a parking lot! Thats hard to believe isn't it. Would appreciate any information anyone might have on Mary Ann, Deborah, or the parking lot that use to be a cemetery.

I live in California and am looking for church records in Cumberland. I wonder if someone can help me.

Emanual SYERS and Sophia Ellen KELLY were married in Cumberland at the Bedford Street Methodest Protestant Church in 1852. I understand the church sold in 1899 and moved "down the street to more commodious facilities"

Does this church still exist, or does anyone know where the church records are now kept?

I would like to check those records for references to other SYERS and related family events at the church. Thanks for any information.

Levi and Nancy Ann BAUGHMAN. They had their son Dennis baptised on Aug. 19, 1838 at the Lutheran and Reformed Church in Wellersburg, PA. Sponsor was Samuel CLOSE.
