William H. Adams Mon Sep 15 00:14:57 1997
During the British march to Washington, D.C in the War of 1812, planters in Calvert Co., MD suffered major destruction of their farms. In the fall of 1816, brothers Joseph and Benjamin FREELAND, John SEDWICK, and Daniel RAWLINGS explored Indiana looking for suitable new farmland. They chose the Indian Creek area of Monroe County and another area in Owen County for the families to settle. The big move was in 1817 and it included several freed slave families. I would like to contact any researchers whose families might have accompanied them or have come later as a result of this migration. I would like to contact the African- American descendants of those former slaves as well. One freed slave's name was Cissie and she became a missionary in Indianapolis. She visited the Freeland family into the 1850s. My belief is that several other families may have accompanied this group from Calvert Co. and possibly Talbot Co. If your family came from this area of Maryland in the 1815-30 period, I would like to receive from you information on the immigrant

My maiden name is Shipley. My paternal grandfather, John Shipley was born in Maryland and resided in Baltimore, Md until his death, I believe he did in the 1950's? Also, John married Grace (van) Blucher in the 1930's. They had two children: Gary and Gail. My paternal-paternal great grandfather was a Grover Shipley, he was born somewhere in Maryland and resided later in life in Maryland. I understand that a few Shipley's came over from England to Maryland with the Anne Arundale CO. But I do not have any concrete dates or full names, please can you help?

Robert Overton Middleton Wed Sep 24 16:16:55 1997
Without much luck, I have been searching for the father's name of Arthur Overton Middleton: born Feb. 14, 1838, supposedly in Washington, DC. He later served as a Captain in the Quartermaster Corp. of the Confederate Army, and according to data gathered in 1920 from a surviving associate he enlisted in November 1861 -- Company A, 17th Arkansas Regiment. He was paroled at Jackson, Miss. in May 1864. Rumor has it that he might be son or relation of Henry Overton Middleton, brother of Charles Semmes Middleton who lived in the Silver Springs, Maryland; and is buried there at the family cemetary on Route 5, across the road from Andrews Air Force Base. I got this Maryland data from a Mrs. Florence Overton Middleton in 1980. In any event, I am trying everything. A.O.Middleton settled in Crystal Springs & Brookhaven, Miss, and married a Mary Susana Barnes. He died in 1900, and she in 1930. HELP! Anyone!
