Theodore WILSON married a Rebecca SCHELL, no dates known but assumed to be in Allegany County. They had, according to a letter I found, 13 children,
Henry, (m. Maggie DAWSON);
Chester, (m. Mae HOBAN);
Blaine,(m. Ida THOMPSON);
Arnold, (m. Minnie PRATT);
George, (m. Pearl STARKEY);
Nora, (m. George DAWSON),
Grace, (m. George BUCKLEW);
Martha, (m. Charles COOK);
Bertha, (m. William ORT);
Kathryn, (m.George BROWN); and
John Andrew, (m/ Katie Veronica HOBAN).

The only dates that I have are for John Andrew WILSON (1886-1945) I have talked with family members and literally have hit that brick wall with this family. Any help with this would be appreciated.

I am looking for information on Frank DECKER and Mary TROLL. Frank and Mary were born in Germany. Frank in 1845 and Mary in 1848. I believe they each came to the USA with their parents about 1855. Frank married Mary TROLL about 1867 and lived in or around Cumberland,MD. They had the following children: Katie(1867), Frank(1873), Martin(1875){my great- grandfather}, Sophia(1878), Charles(1883), Mary(1885), Ida(1887),and Lewis 1893). I am looking for their marrage, immigration, naturalization, and family information.(Need info for 1870 and earlier.) Thanks,

David HOUSER was born 8 Jul 1801 in Maryland. He married and purchased land in Jefferson Co. Ohio in 1824 and 1826 respectively. When he died there in 1873, the death record names Adam HOUSER as his father. I have found "Adam HOUSER" on census record indexes in Allegany Co. MD. I'm looking for more details to prove or disprove that gg-grandfather David HOUSER came from Allegany Co., MD., and to learn more about the family. Thanks for any information or clues.

Date posted: Saturday, September 15, 2001

I'm looking for a documented family group for John and Naomi FISHER LASHLEY, late 1700's/ early 1800's of Allegany County. Specifically, has anyone compiled the stones in the Lashley Cemetery north of Flintstone, near the PA line? I'm looking for documentation, also, for establishing them as parents for Elizabeth LASHLEY, 1st wife of Jacob FLETCHER of Monroe Twp., Bedford County PA. Jacob's sister Mary Ann FLETCHER married Robert LASHLEY, another child of John and Naomi. Was there an estate settlement for John LASHLEY, and did the list of heirs mention Elizabeth? The above mentioned Fletcher siblings were children of Philip and Mary Sullivan Fletcher, both of the Flintstone area. Philip FLETCHER's farm lay east of Polish Mountain, near Pratt's Hollow (prob. north of I-68). Philip also ran a tavern on the old National Pike, on the summit of Polish Mtn, along what is now "Scenic Rt. 40". The families also had close ties with the DICKEN and WILSON families of Allegany and Bedford Counties.
