Seek information about the ancestors of Martin RIZER and Rosina GEPHART, who were married in Allegany County 06/04/1799. I believe that his father was the Martin RIZER who built the Black Horse Tavern in Cumberland, MD in 1764. I have a transcription of a newspaper article from 1920, giving the history of the tavern, prior to its being torn down. I also have details of my line of descent from Martin & Rosina. Is there a published history of Cumberland and does it mention the Balck Horse Tavern?

The History Of Allegany Co, MD, Vol II, pgs. 732-733 tells of a Frostburg jeweler, Daniel J. BETZ, bn. Apr. 13, 1849 who md. Emma JARRETT in Nov. 1875. It reveals that Daniel's parents were Jacob & Philippa (Heintz) BETZ, a coal miner at Midlothian Coal Co., who had 7 living children. Because I am interested in BETZ family members born in the 1770's in MD, I'd like to find out something about, Jacob BETZ, the father's family! I also found a Jacob BETTS in MD Revolutionary Records, pg. 10...probably the same man. He served as a sgt. on the MD line in 1752. His widow and heirs applied for Fed. Pension and bounty lands. Who can help me locate this information? Are their any descendents of either of these men doing genealogy research?

The 1800 MD. Census, Roll 14, for Allegany Co. lists a Catherine BEETZ. Does anyone know who she was and does she fit into somebody's family? I'm interested in learning about any and all members of the BETZ family (various spellings) pre-1800!

I'd appreciate so very much anybody who could keep these names/dates in mind when they do their own research! Thanks in advance and may God bless you for caring and sharing!
