1. I am looking for the parents of John SHUHART and his wife Ellen "Ellie" LEE, both of Barton, MD. They had 8 children: Rennie (my great grandmother), Joseph, Freddy, Willie, Aubey, Stella, Anna, and Albert.

2. I am looking for the parents of Howard MILLER of Barton, MD. He married Rennie SHUHART, and he died of scarlet fever somewhere around 1905-1915. Howard's parents may have been William H. MILLER & Dorcas DUCKWORTH, but I think that the father or grandfather could have been Sampson or Sampson Howard MILLER.

** Finally, I am looking for anyone who may have information about the biological father of Paul "Smitty" Edward MILLER, b. 21 Feb 1930 in Pittsburgh, A and raised in Barton, MD. His mother was Thelma Mae (MILLER) HYDE, born in Barton, MD and died Frostburg, MD 1994. Father was listed as "unknown" on Smitty's birth certificate. I'd enjoy hearing from any and all relatives or friends!

I am searching for any EVANS/EVENS connections in Allegany County in the late 1700's/1800's. I have information on a John EVANS born about 1795 in Maryland. He was living in Armstrong County, PA by 1820 and married to a woman named Charity. Census information from PA indicates his birthplace as Maryland.
