Hello to all! I am looking for any information on an individual who came from England as a convict named Samuel Fox. He was on a ship called the brothers that landed somewhere in Maryland but we dont know where. Anyone know how to find info on something like this?

Another brick wall I have in MD. is who are the parents of William Bowie who married Ann Card in Frederick Co.,MD. in 1788?

We believe Ann Card is the sister to Mary Card who married George Windham in St.Mary's Co.,MD. in 1783. We think their father was Benson Card.

Thanks for any information!

I'm looking for the marriage date & place of William Drake,Jr. & Mary ? I also need Mary's maiden name. William was born circa 1784 the son of William Drake,Sr. & Elizabeth Hinkle.The family had ties to Frederick & Allegany Co.,MD. They also could have been married in Bedford Co.,PA. where they appear in the 1810 census. The Drake parents appear in the 1800 census in Bedford Co.,PA. as well.

I'm also needing William Drake,Sr.'s parents. He was born circa 1760. He married Elizabeth Hinkle in 1780 in Frederick Co.,MD.

Thanks for any help!

I was looking for some help.
My gr. grandmother was Caroline (Callie) Fritz. She lived her entire life in Carroll County, MD. She lived from 1877-1960. In 1896, she had my grandfather out of wedlock and raised him for a few years in her parents home. She married Edward Ricketts in 1901 who abused my grandfather, so she contacted his uncle in IL who came and took him in to raise.
Caroline and Edward had 3 children, Clyde, Bessie & Ralph Ricketts. I do not know whatever became of them. What I am looking for is a picture of my gr. grandmother Caroline and someone who may have information on the Fritz/Mopps families of Carroll Co., MD area.

Thank you,

I just wanted to tell everyone about a seminar on 10/17/2009 at Washington College in Chestertown (Kent Co.), MD. It is called "Destination Delmarva" and will feature 8 different presentations on genealogical topics pertinent to the area. It is co-sponsored by the Maryland Genealogical Society and the Delaware Genealogical Society. More information can be found at MGS or DGS websites or at

I don't know how helpful this is, but I have found that many of the early families from the St Marys area that migrated into Kentucky settled in the areas of Breckinridge and Grayson Counties (in addition to the well-known destinations of Nelson, Washington and Marion Counties). I know that one branch of the Clarke family (down from Robert Clarke the Surveyor General) did this. Also you will find the names Combs, Mattingly, and many others.

I am most interested in the groups of Catholic Marylanders who went to Kentucky 1770's to 1790's. Suggestions for best sources for research on this group?

I forgot my Windham's/Windom's from Prince Georges Co.,MD. in the 1700's. Thanks!
