I am looking for information on McKILLIPS (sometimes spelled McKellop), who arrived in Baltimore on the ship Bangor in 1844. My ancestor, Agnes MCKILLIP, presumably died in Cumberland, MD approx. 1849 at age 38 - 40. Some of her sons were John MCKILLIP, Hugh, James B., William J., Dennis. Her husband Daniel died in a coal mine explosion in Scotland. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to find any information I can. My relatives listed are all from the Cumberland, MD, area. My Grandfather was Edward ELLSWORTH, his parents Benjamin Neal ELLSWORTH and Florence (or Florentia) MEDERS married Aug. 3, 1899. Benjamin, I believe, was born in Ohio, son of Samuel ELLSWORTH and Elizabeth FUNK. Florence was the daughter of Michael MEDERS and Caroline "Nonnie" HODEL. I believe Caroline was the child of John HODEL (who immigrated from Switzerland in 1817) and Anna Marie BUS(S)INGER (who may have immigrated with him) to Philadelpia, then to Germantown, PA., after having their children, they moved to Cumberland, MD.

John HODEL, 17, came from Switzerland ito Philadelphia the same year, 1817 as a Nicholas HODEL, 23 ( I believe to be on the the same ship). They both settled in Cumberland, MD. around the same time and both families have members buried in the same cemetary. Of course, I'm wondering if they were brothers or something. My Grandmother, Eva "Grace" JEWELL, was the daughter of Toliver Wade JEWELL and Mary Ellen HIGGS (I believe to be from West Virgina, close to Cumberland, MD.. Mary Ellen had a brother, Hubert HIGGS who married a Ruth, and a sister, Lula. I'd appreciate any help! Thanks,
