Is there anyone researching the KASEKAMPs from the Green Ridge area of Allegany Co.? I am particularly interested in connecting with descendants of Ruth (TWIGG) and Henry KASEKAMP. Ruth and Henry married 2/15/1876 in Allegany Co. According to Ruth's death certificate, she was born 6/6/1867 but the year is incorrect because she is listed in the 1860 Allegany Co. Census as a 3 year old, so it must have been 1857. She died in Frostburg, MD at the home of one her children (address: 80 Loo/Los Street). Norah KASEKAMP gave the information according to Ruth's death certificate.

All the death certificates I have for her siblings list her mother's maiden name as Jane TWIGG (Jane TWIGG m. Harrison TWIGG) with the exception of Ruth's. It has her mother's maiden name listed as Jane "POTTS", leading me to believe there is a POTTS connection to this KASEKAMP line. Any help would be appreciated.

Surnames: FARRADY, GRIFFITH
Researcher: Robert Griffith

Date posted: Saturday, August 8, 1998

George Charles GRIFFITH married Ann FARRADY. They resided in Frostburg, Cumberland, and Eckhart Mines, MD around 1900-1905. They had several children (George, Margaret, Thomas, James (my grandpa), and Robert) between 1905 and 1914.

Some time around 1914-1920 George Charles GRIFFITH died, and Ann (FARRADY) GRIFFITH went to work in an orphanage (I believe in Cumberland) where her young children lived with her.

When my grandfather was old enough, he moved out here to California and lost all track of his family. He passed away about 15 years ago, and I have been trying to track down the family ever since! Any contact would be appreciated.

Researcher: Barbara WILLIAMSON

Date posted: Thursday, August 20, 1998

I am trying to determine the point of immigration as well as the town of origin for my great grandparents, Michael KEARNEY, married before arriving from Ireland to Ellen COSGROVE. They settled in Mount Savage, MD by mid-1850s.

They had two children, Anna (@1844) and William (@1847), in Ireland. Mary Ellen (FLOOD)(1853), John (1855), and Michael Patrick (1857) KEARNEY, were born in Mount Savage. Michael KEARNEY died in 1877 and is buried in St. Patrick's in Mount Savage. His tombstone states he was a native of County Longford, Ireland. No further information is known about either his or Ellen's origination point or parents.

Anna married William MCHUGH in Jan, 1867, had one daughter Mary Gonzaga. She was widowed by 1880, and lived in Cumberland till her death in 1924. William (per family notes, unable to prove to this point) married a Catherine Doolin and moved to Youngstown, OH by 1900 where he dies in 1916. Mary Ellen married Francis FLOOD, had four children, Joseph, Annie, and Rose all born in PA, and Ferdinand, born in OH. She too lived in Youngstown, OH and died there in 1913.

John KEARNEY married Ellen LOGSDON (per family notes, unable to prove to this point), had at least one child. His time and place of death unknown. Michael Patrick, married Catherine TANSEY in 1881 (unsubstantiated). Catherine died 1882. Michael Patrick then married Margaret MCKONE of Piedmont, WV. Michael Patrick was superintendent of fort construction. He died in MA in 1921. Margaret died in NY in 1928. Both are buried in St. Peter's cemetery in Westernport, MD.

Daniel LANTZ (died before 10 May 1824 and more likely, before 1820 according to US Census records) married Margaret______ and had the following children: John, Jacob, George, Sophia, Clarissa (1799-1854), Mary, Margaret, Eliza, Susan, and Juliana. Lived in vicinity of Skipton (present-day Old Town), Allegany Co., MD. George LANTZ was arrested 5 May 1827 near Oldtown [sic], Maryland for the March 1824 murder of John GUSLER.

Sophia LANTZ married George W DEVICMAN, 18 Sep 1827, Allegany Co., MD. Clarissa LANTZ married George CATLETT, 3 Nov 1822, Allegany Co., MD. Clarissa and George are buried in the Methodist Church cemetery in Old Town, Allegany Co. Mary LANTZ married Jacob TAYLOR, before 10 May 1824. Clarissa LANTZ and George CATLETT are my 3rd great-grandparents.

Seeking identity of parents of Daniel LANTZ and identification of his wife's surname and parents. A family group sheet on file with the NGS Library in Arlington, VA suggests that Margaret was a KIMBERLY. Would like to hear from descendants of Daniel and Margaret or from anyone having information that might determine the origins of Daniel and Margaret. Can provide a list of descendants of this couple to interested cousins.

George CATLETT's father, David, was born ca. 1753 in Prince William Co., VA with close family ties in the lower Shenandoah Valley. There were LANTZ families in the Shenandoah Valley, as well. Is Daniel connected to the VA families or is he more likely connected to the PA families?
