MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

The Genealogical Council’s next business meeting is scheduled for Sat, Apr 8, 1995 at 10 AM at the Frederick County Historical Society.  The Civil War and the new Society library facilities will be featured in the afternoon program.  Mr Burt Kummarow, Director of the newly established Civil War Medical Museum will provide the group with an update on that project located in downtown Frederick.  Also John Peterson, NPS Project Manager of the Civil War Soldiers System will provide an update on the management, in Maryland, of the Names Index segment of the project.  Additionally, Ron Walker, Computer Designer, of Blue Ridge Systems, will give a live demonstration of the multi-media program being developed as the ultimate product of the system.  Members able to arrive by 9:30 will be given a tour of the revamped library facilities.

EDITOR’S NOTE

In response to the attitude of some researchers, courthouse staff, & librarian types who abuse their positions of leadership with novice learners and, to use a phrase plagiarized from nursing, ‘eat our young’ by discouraging new genealogy researchers, I’ve put together a little list of my pet peeves. This is not to reflect on any one person, but includes stories I heard and problems I’ve read about.  I, myself, have been guilty of being short with some newcomers, so this is something I’ve learned from, too.

Blessed are those who share their time and information with other researchers, for what goes around comes around.
Blessed are those who teach others how to use resources, secure that this will be used to further the research of others.
Blessed are the librarians and staff of institutions of higher education who allow anyone interested in research to use their resources & point out how to use the indexes and reference utilities.
Blessed is the courthouse or library staffer who does NOT say ‘Oh no, not another genealogist’.
Blessed is the courthouse or library worker who refers people with specific questions to someone else who can help them.
Blessed are they who keep the equipment running &/or when equipment is fixed call patrons to say they should come in to use it.
Blessed are they who do not question the motives of others, but take them at face value and offer suggestions in a forthright & friendly way.
Blessed are those researchers in lineage or hereditary societies who are not sanctimonious about their ancestors.
Blessed is the researcher who uses primary documentation.
Blessed are those who donate time, money or effort to preserve primary records.
Blessed is the organized library, court house, and researcher.
Blessed are those who preserve oral histories and traditions.

Send me your pet peeves. Trudie

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Most genealogists seem to enjoy visiting the exhibit hall during genealogical conferences in order to see what goods and services are available because this is their best opportunity to ‘see before they buy’. The vendors go to these conferences primarily to build their businesses which means getting new customers and turning a profit. Over the past several years the vendors have become increasingly distressed because they find themselves working for minimum wage or actually losing money at most conferences.
Following the FGS meeting last October we circulated a survey to about 50 commercial vendors……..
The survey makes it clear that the problems being experienced by the vendors are systemic; they relate to the design and operation of the conferences and are characteristic of most events, both large and small. The main problems experienced by the vendors arise because their sales are too low and/or their overhead is too high.  Their sales are too low because there are too few conference attendees in proportion to the number of vendors present, and there are too few free hours in the typical program during which the attendees can browse the vendors…..
The vendor report and the remarks above suggest several changes that could easily be implemented which would substantially improve the vendors prospects:
1. Let the vendors play an active role in conference planning…….
2. Improve the ratio of attendees to vendors by improving the marketing of the conferences and/or restricting the number of vendors if necessary……
3. A larger proportion of the program time should be allocated for vendor browsing, and that time should be more concentrated……
….All responses I receive will be circulated among all the Vendors who participated in the survey.  Anyone wanting a free copy of the vendor survey can request it from me.

Past Tracks of the Green Valley Arizona Genealogical Society for Feb95 has reviews of their Dec94 & Jan95 programs and a set of guidelines for new researchers using the federal census records.

The February issue of St Mary’s County The Generator contains two stories about members ancestors in the Civil War.
The March issue has information on 2 books on St Mary’s County research (see the Book section, and a SLAGLE Bible, property of FRECOGS member Sarah Barnes Slagle Fitzgerald.

Family Backtracking of the Puget Sound Genealogical Society continues their list of Kitsap County marriage records 1860-1915, and has an article on ‘Impressions of My Research Trip to Salt Lake City.”

The author, W Burton Lewis, was questioning the parentage of one of his ancestors, which could have been one of 3 men. Imagine the possibilities for identification if a business was available to do DNA testing, just for family research.

The Winter 1995 issue of the Mock Family Historian has an article on the descendants of “George Mock of Harrison Co, IN” and “Diary of John W Mauck A Civil War Soldier” among other interesting articles.

Jesse EURY of Delaware Co, OH

Jesse Eury, farmer, PO, Delaware; among successful farmers of Delaware Co, may be mentioned Mr Jesse Eury who was born in Frederick Co, near Liberty, MD, March 25 1813 and is the son of Samuel and Sarah Eury; he was raised on the farm, and entered a mill in his native county , and began to learn the miller’s trade, in which he continued, in Frederick Co, until 1836, when he started West to Ohio on horseback, arriving and locating in Delaware, after being on the road some two weeks; here he commenced to work at his trade, in a mill near where the woolen mill now stands; after working a short time, he purchased an interest in the mill and continued in business until 1842, during which time he was not very successful in the mill business, having suffered very much from the panic of 1837; in 1842, Mr Eury purchased a farm in Delaware Township, on the Columbus and Delaware road; where he moved and commenced farming, remaining there until 1869, when he moved to his present farm; in 1870, he built his present home.  He married, March 28 1839 Miss Mary KLINE of Pennsylvania, who, with her parents, emigrated to Ohio and located in Delaware Co at an early day; they have one child.  Mr Eury owns 339 acres of land, most of which he has cleared as when he purchased this land, in 1851, but little of it was improved.  He owns one of the best improved farms in the neighborhood.  (This submitted by Bonnie S Knox, from the Biographical section of The History of Delaware County Pgs 623-4)

Intention of Maryland State Roads Commission to move certain Graves (1965)

Whereas, the State Roads Commission of Maryland, in its contemplated improvement to US Route 15 from Frederick to the PA State Line, under the provision of Right of Way Project F-522-17-720 finds it necessary to acquire a portion of the property of Robert D LEATHERMAN, which is located on the north side of MD Route 15, approximately 1000 feet west of the town of Lewistown, in Frederick Co, and
Whereas, there is presently situated within the area to be acquired for said improvement to US Route 15 a burying ground contained several grave sites and markers. One marker dated 1784 has the name Ruth Engelbe MORGENSTERNIST inscribed thereon, and
Whereas, the State Roads Commission of MD will, at its expense and in a decent and reverent manner, exhume and reinter or cause to be exhumed and reintered, in the Lewistown Cemetery, located at Lewistown, MD, all the remains found in said burying  ground, except in those cases where descendants may come forward to claim any of said remains for reinternment in places of their own choice, in which event the State Roads Commission of MD will fully reimburse said persons for all reasonable costs so incurred.

FINDING THE HOUSEHOLD OF AN UNNAMED ANCESTOR printed format of a presentation at the January 1992 Kentucky Genealogical Society as it appeared in Bluegrass ROOTS, Vol 19, Number 1, Spring 1992, page 8. Presented and written by KGS Vice-president Alfred (Fred) SAYLOR.

Are you frustrated by early census records which do not name household members?  The Census for 1840 and before shows the name of only the head of the household.  Others in the household are shown only by the number of persons in sex and age brackets.
You can step back beyond your earliest records by using early census records to do more than count noses.
Your earliest known ancestor may not be a ‘head of household’, but he or she was in a household somewhere.
In the search for that ‘somewhere’, many possibilities listed in a census report may be reduced to fewer possibilities by using simple arithmetic.  That means less research time and effort.  The method described below may be applied to all census records from 1790 through 1840.
The household member count-by sex and age group-is reported in various ways in the different census. The particulars of any census scheme may be found in pertinent literature.  For the sake of brevity, only the 1790 census will be used in this illustration.
The household member count in 1790 was given in a sequence of 5 digits.
-1st digit is the number of free white males 16 years and older (including the head of the household).
-2nd digit is the number of free white males under 16 years of age.
-3rd digit is the number of free white females, including the head of household if it is a female.
-4th digit is the number of all other free persons.
-5th digit is the number of slaves.
For convenience, let us refer to this sequence of number as the ‘hh status’ or household status.
If particular persons of known age and sex are members of a particular household, the ‘hh status’ for that household will contain digits respectively no less than the number of persons so known for each sex and age category.  This fact makes possible the elimination-tentatively, for research purposes-of households for which the ‘hh status’ figures do not conform to these minimum values.
This example from the writer’s experience will explain the method.
Peter SAILOR was 26 years old at the census of 1790, as determined by calculation from dates and ages given in various sources.  His place of residence at that time and earlier is not known.  The names of his parents or of his siblings, if any, are not known.  This information suggests the following possibilities:

***********************************************************************
Peter      Wife      Father      Mother      1st      2nd      3rd      4th      5th

present    none      living      living           2        0        1        0         0
present    none      living      deceased     2        0        0        0         0
present    present   living      living           2        0        2        0         0
present    present   living      deceased     2        0        1        0         0
present    none      deceased    living       1        0        1        0         0
present    present   deceased    living       1        0        2        0         0

Four households can be eliminated:
Jacob SEHLER in Berks County, Brunswick Township            1  4  3  0  0
Jacob SEILER in Berks County, East District                         1  1  8  0  0
Philip SAYLOR in Chester County, Honeybrook Township       1  3  3  0  0
Henery SELLER in York County, Williams Township               1  3  5  0  0

None of the above examples hat the required configuration of digits to indicate the present of Peter in a household in which some person other than Peter is ‘head of household’.  If Peter is present along with the named ‘head of household’, the first digit must be 2 or more.  The perspective values of the 2nd, 4th, and 5th digits have no bearing on the conclusion.

Examples of inclusion are:
Valentine SEHLER, Berks County, Alsace Township             2  1  5  0  0
John SEHLER, Berks County, Alsace Township                   3  1  0  0  0
Phillip SELLER, Northampton County, Upper Saucon            4  3  2  0  0
John SEILER, Northampton County, Williams Township        5  0  1  0  0

All of the above examples have the required configuration of digits to indicate the presence of Peter in the respective households.
If both of Peter’s parents were deceased-a situation not shown in the table above-and if Peter were the oldest free white male in the household, then Peter would be named as ‘head of household’ in the census report.  This method of identifying his household would not be necessary.  Also, Peter might have been named as ‘head of household’ on the report, if he, being of legal age was living with his widowed mother who held title to the homestead/  In both of the foregoing cases, the first digit of the ‘hh status’ would be at least one; and the last 2 possibilities named in the table above need not be considered because he would be named in the census report.
But, if his mother was named as ‘head of household’, another approach may be used to eliminate her household as his residence.  The 1790 census for Pennsylvania lists 49 ‘heads of household’ having the surname SAYLOR, or any spelling variation thereof.  Of these, only on reported a feminine name as ‘head of household’.

Elis’a SEYLER, Berks County, Tulpehocken Township          0  1  1  0  0

Since there were no free white males of 16 or over in that household, Peter SAYLOR, age 26, was not a member.
Now, suppose Peter and an older brother who might have been reported as ‘head of household’ were living with their widowed mother, the first digit in the ‘hh status’ would be at least 2, which eliminates the last 2 possibilities in the above table.  In this manner the writer has reduced 49 possibilities to 15 probabilities.  The chance of finding corroborative evidence of Peter SAYLOR belonging to one of 14 households is greater than that of finding  such evidence in the other 34 households.  The task has been reduced to one third of what it had been.
This simple procedure may eliminate a lot of frustrating search time and effort in working with the US Censuses before 1850.

ADOPTEE/BIRTHPARENT SEARCHES

Searching for adopted female. Born June 26 1976 in Frederick, MD. Birth name Sirrena Lou Ford.  Please contact Aunt and Uncle at 694-7311 or write to James & Shirley Ford, 7301 Willow Rd, Frederick, MD 21702.

This letter is very hard to write because my heart and mind is filled with anguish, hurt, loneliness, and pain. I know that you are out there, and I have desperately tried – to no avail – to locate you, but no matter what sources I have tried to use in my search, I can’t rid myself of the hurt I am feeling being without you.
I guess that I can only begin by telling you of the short life we spent together.
The first time we met, you were an infant who was truly loved by all that were close to you. You have remarkable qualities that were so dominant that one could not help but to love you.
From my hart and mind, fond memories I shall never forget. This is how your life began. You were born Paul Timothy Westfall, on Aug 9 1967 at Memorial Hospital in Cumberland, MD. At the time of your birth we lived on Mitchell Ave and later moved to Seymore Street.
There you remained with us for a period of 3-4 years. I am quite sure that the short time we shared was wonderful, and I am truly sorry that it had to end the way it did.
Sometime in 1971 you were removed and placed by social services in the foster home of Donald and Ethel Monnet of Oldtown, MD. There you remained for about 2 years. During your stay there you became very close to your foster family, especially their youngest daughter, Misty. While there, you had a family that truly loved you. You had ponies to play with and to ride. We were even able to visit with each other on a few occasions.
But all that was to end. You were taken from this loving family and supposedly placed with an adoptive family from the Baltimore area.
This was the last that any of us who had loved you and cared for you, was to see or hear from you.
Now, more than 20 years later, I still have a place in my hart that is empty, that place is reserved for you.
Even though I have hit dead ends every time I try to locate you, I want you to know  that no matter what I will never stop my search until I know that you are alive, healthy and well. Stephen Matthew Westfall  Hagerstown (1-29-95 Hagerstown Herald Mail)

I am researching Abram STANFORD who was on the tax list for Carlisle, PA in 1764. Abram was in Mifflin Co, PA in 1790. The 1800 census shows the following Stanfords in Armstrong Co: Abram, Francis, Isaac & John. Also shown are John & George EMMITT.  About 1817, John Stanford & his wife Bathsheba AUSTIN & George Emmitt and wife Adda/Addie Stanford moved west into Scioto Valley, Ohio. I believe that George Emmitt was possibly the brother of Samuel Emmitt of Emmitsburg. I understand in the History of Emmitsburg, MD there is mention of Samuel’s bro, wife & 4 ch moving west into Scioto Valley. Are the Stanfords from Dorchester, MD?
