I was just wondering if anyone found the name ROBERTSON on any of the head stones in the Oak Hill Cemetery and does anyone know if the Allegany Cemetery in Frostburg is now Frostburg Memorial? I found that listed on some old newpaper articles. Thanks.

I am looking for information on the family of Jacob STUCK who married Elizabeth ROBY in 1812 according to the IGI. Jacob is listed in the Allegany Co. census index for 1850 on Page 24, 3rd District.

Moses WADSWORTH and his wife Nancy were in 1850 Census living in Cumberland with their 3 daughters, Minerva C., Mary O. and Anna. In 1860 Cumberland Census, Anna is the only one of this WADSWORTH family still living in Cumberland. She is 11 years old and is living with Charlotte WRIGHT. In 1870 Census Anna is 19 years old and Charlotte is 73 years old. Is Charlotte Anna's relative and if so how? What happened to Anna? What happened to her parents and sisters? Any help is appreciated.

My great-grandfather was Moses N. MCKINZIE. He was born in Allegheny County, Cresaptown. Moses volunteered for the Union forces on March 29, 1864 and was wounded at Antietam on August 5, 1864. He was 19 years old.I believe his father may have been John N. MCKINZIE. He married Sarah Catherine STARKEY b.1852. They had the following children: Sarah C. MCKINZIE 12/12/1862; Emma Lenora MCKINZIE 10/28/1873; Edgar Ulysses MCKINZIE 2/25/1868. Please contact me if you recognize any of these people.
