DAVIS, FORREST, GARRETT posted by Kevin Wayne Quincy Daniel on Saturday, November 8, 1997

Researching the descendants of Griffith and Eleanor FORREST DAVIS. This couple and their descendants lived in the Prince George, Frederick and later Montgomery Counties when these counties were created. They had: Lodowick, Charles, Griffith, John Forrest and Thomas DAVIS. These names ran in the family for several generations. A descendant, Jeremiah DAVIS, and his wife Susannah GARRETT, left Montgomery County and went to Kentucky with his uncle Thomas Davis, settling in Bourbon, Clark and Montgomery Counties, there. Would like to contact others researching any of these lines.

SCANLON posted by Ginny Chung on Sunday, November 30, 1997

Seeking 1987 obituary My ggreatuncle's daughter Kathryn V. Scanlon died in Silverspring Maryland Feb 20, 1987. She was living on Olympic St Wheaton MD at the time of her death. I believe this is in Montgomery County. I have been trying to find the descendants of this ggreatuncle for some time. I'm hoping an obituary will shed some light on the subject. Does anyone have access to a newspaper who can check for an obit. I know her body was transferred to Mass for burial and I checked the Mass papers but came up empty.
