Looking for any information on the parents of FRANCES MARION ROBERTSON, b. 1843 in Denton, MD, Caroline county. He was one of three children, sailed the Chesapeake Bay for oysters, and moved to Kansas on or about 1867. He moved to first Milford and then to Coyville, KS where he lived in Morgan Valley and taught school in Row Valley. He opened a grocery store and became president of the Coyville Bank for 10 years. He went on to become a KS state senator sometime after marrying his wife Lottie in 1873. In 1916 he was aide-de-camp to the Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. He died in 1926. His children included WILL ROBERTSON, b. 1-29-1879 in Coyville, KS, in Wilson County. I believe that FRANCES' parents probably lived in Denton for some time, and would like to find any information which will help me find his parents and grandparents. Thanks!

I am researching the PAVEY/PAVY (Peavy?) family. John PAVEY along with his brother Isaac were on the 1790 Caroline Co., MD. census. Isaac PAVEY went to KY. ca. 1801, and John PAVEY went to Guilford Co., N.C., Jamestown, Deep River area. I do not know when John left Caroline Co., but he bought land in Guilford Co., N.C. in 1802. I'm pretty sure he was a Nicolite and could have been married to a daughter of James ANDERSON (who was a Nicolite.) John PAVEY's son (Joseph?) Anderson PAVEY was my ancestor. Anderson Pavey was born in Caroline Co., MD., 1791. The next time we find Anderson PAVEY is on the 1820 Washington Co. IN. census. There was a John PAVEY who died in Washington Co., IN. in 1814 which we believe is our John. The Washington Co. history books talks about a "Pavy and Miller" who were Indian scouts and scorned the safety of forts. This may be our John PAVEY. Can anyone help me on this family? I do have quite a bit of info. that I will gladly exchange.

I am looking for my g-g-g-g-grandparents John KEMP (born possibly in Ireland or Scotland) and Elizabeth (Betsy) BROWN (sister of Thomas Brown). I have been told that they were possibly married here around 1800. Their sons were John Nelson B. KEMP (b.01/01/1801), Samuel KEMP (b.Abt. 1804), and William KEMP (b. 20 May,1807)-according to the Stepney Parish Records of Somerset County (now Wicomico Co.), Maryland. William KEMP married Mary Elizabeth Burzetta WRIGHT in Caroline County, Maryland in 1827. The family possibly lived there until the death of Mary WRIGHT on 15 December, 1833. The children of William and Mary were John Amos KEMP, Mary Elizabeth KEMP, and Harriet A. KEMP (all born in Caroline County, Maryland). William KEMP then moved with his children to Ross County, Ohio, where Thomas BROWN (brother of Elizabeth BROWN) lived. William then married Hester GODWIN (daughter of Levi GODWIN of Ross Co., Ohio) and they had kids. This is the only imfo on this family in Maryland that I know.
