Surnames I am researching in Maryland:

County of interest: Somerset County, Maryland

My family's records show John Harris, born 27 October 1802 Somerset County, MD. He married Sarah Marshall Davis, born 4 Oct 1803, also of Somerset County, MD. John was living in Woodford County, KY in 1819. Sarah Marshall Davis moved to Woodford County, KY in 1826. His religion may have been Methodist.

Hello I am decended from John Glaze 1676 in MD. His son Benjamine was in my line next he died in Granville NC. His daughter Catherine married into the Childs family of Anderson SC. So this can be your tie into SC. I do not have any ties to the the SC Glaze lines you mentioned.

Looking for Charles and Elisabeth (Luther/Lowther) both born around 1720 and listed in Queen Anne, Chesterfield and Kershaw (these are listed as counties but I suspect they are towns)
