Looking for a baptismal or church record of the birth of William E. BRADSHAW born 1801 Somerset Co,MD,son of Jacob BRADSHAW born 13 Oct 1780 Somerset Co,MD(Richard BRADSHAW/BRATCHER and Arabella TYLER) and Levenia EVANS born 1790 MD (Richard EVANS and Keziah EVANS). There is some controversy about whether or not my William is in fact their son. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am interested in finding any information on my family branch, the Hawvers. They were in Maryland in the Frederick County area, near Hagerstown. The parents' names were Daniel H.(1793-1853)and Elizabeth Browne Hawver (1797-1880). Their daughter Susannah Hawver, who was born in MD, 1-27-1819, She and her siblings and parents came to Ohio around 1833 by covered wagon. I am interested in finding out more about this family and their earlier relatives if anyone can help. Thank you!

Need help breaking through my 'brick wall". My GGGrandfather, John A. Merriken was born 08 May 1805 in MD, married Anna Mirah Cowden in AL on 16 Oct 1839 and lived and raised his family in AL. He died 22 Mar 1881 and is buried in AL. Family story is that he came through AL while fighting in "Indian Wars". There is a John listed as fighting in the Seminole War (39th Fowler's Reg. MD Milita) but I don't have proof that this is my "John". While I have much info on his time in AL I cannot go back before he arrived. I want to know the name of his parents and/or sibs as a starting point. Another family story is that he (and maybe his family) were fishermen around Chesapeak Bay area. He named his first son William P. Any help would be appreciated. Unfortunately John is a common name and there were many Merriken's in MD during that time period. Thanks
