My gt-gt-gt grandfather John SHRYER married Christianna FETTER in Allegany Co. MD on 6/1/1795. A genealogy forum ventures that Christianna was born in Hagerstown MD. Christianna was evidently underage because a "letter" supported her right to marry. Beyond their marriage, we can find no documentation supporting Christianna's birth, parents, siblings, etc., nor any formal listing of John and Christianna's children. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello & THANK YOU everyone who sent me information relating to S.T. Little Jewelers. I was wondering if any of you might know of or have access to listings or records of any sort relating to my POOLE ancestors, who are as follows (note that the spelling was POOL until mid- 19th century, when it transformed to POOLE for some reason--some of these fellows used both spellings) Denton POOL, born in England, married in Bedford County PA somewhere around 1800-1810 Denton's son Samuel POOL (1816-1877, roughly, born in Cumberland) who married Margaret BLANKNEY SAMUEL/Margaret's son Arthur Atkinson POOLE (1842-1928, born in Cumberland), married Laura V. FRENCH I would love to know if Arthur had siblings, and if Denton or Samuel are buried anywhere in Allegany County--would probably have been in Cumberland, since they lived there for many decades (or their wives--I think, but am not sure, that Denton's wife was Elizabeth Barnes). ANY assistance or hints or resources you can think of will be most gratefully received. When I get all of this straightened out, I will post the entire POOLE genealogy, so people can see if anything links up (have to figure out how to do this--am not very computer savvy). Thanks so much--Elizabeth

I am looking for more connections between Washington HITE (George Washington HITE) and Milton HITE (Henry Milton HITE). I have the following: Excerpts from The Cumberland Times transcribed by Charles Often HITE 26 Mar 1891 Mr Washington HITE, for years employed as a watchman for the George's Creek and Cumberland RR, died this morning at the residence of son-in-law Hiram Wolfe at 263 N Centre Street. He leaves a large family, among them, Mrs Hiram Wolfe and Milton, John T, and Charles HITE. Death was caused by paralysis. Burial is on the old HITE farm, 3 miles out on Little Valley Road. Also 1850 and 1860 PPA Census show Henry M as son of Washinton HITE. Any other documents, i.e. will, deeds newspaper, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
