I am attempting to find graves for two minor children of John and Martha PFEIFFER of Frostburg Maryland. John and Martha and four of the six minor children that passed before reaching adulthood are buried in a family plot within Frostburg Memorial. The two children' graves would be for: Christina Helena PFEIFFER, being born in May 1859 and living one day. FRIEDERICH Pfeiffer born in May 1865 and passing in January 1867.

John was a German immigrant to Baltimore in 1852, settling in Frostburg 1 year later. These two children passed prior to what appears to be the purchase of a family plot in the cemetery where the other family members are interred. They attended the German Evagelical Lutheran Church, which is still standing and now the Zion Church of God, on Main Street in Frostburg. On the rootsweb page, the German Lutheran Cemetery entry drew my attention to you. Also, do you know of any good historical books or other resources about Eckhart Mines? Thanks beforehand, for any assistance that you can render. Eric

I have ancestors who lived in Cumberland. Edward Thomas RHODES and his wife Mary Emma lived on Frederick Street in 1900. Edward Thomas owned his own saloon. I think it was located on Mechanic Street. First, I am interested in Mary Emma's parents names. I am not sure, but I think her maiden name was DAVIS. Second, I would like to know the name of Edward's saloon.

Looking for the birthplace of John W. ROSS, born 1839 or 1847 in Maryland. He is believed to be related to the William ROSS (1740-1812) family of Georges Creek, who had 9 children born in the area from 1766- 1800. Two of Wm's children, Wm and John, lived & died in W. Ohio & E. Indiana. John W.ROSS may have been living with a relative in Indiana before he married Rebecca ARCHBOLD in 1867 and died a hero in 1871...
