“Thank you for publishing my query about Sarah E Colliflower. I’ve had no luck in the query’s through the Maryland Genealogy Soc. But received a wealth of information with your efforts.  Thank you again.”
Obviously this is a blatant appeal for queries-because sometimes they do WORK.  This particular query was one I picked up in ‘another’ journal-and the author of the query is now a member.  If I read an article that has something to do with Frederick Co, I will make every effort to get it in the newsletter.
All suggestions and ideas appreciated.  Please send in your efforts today.


Exchange journals are available in the vertical files at the FHC.

The August issue of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society Newsletter has a continuing note for those people who live in California and do research about the Vital Records Security Act of 1995-which has come up 2 more times and defeated by a ‘very slim margin’. Assemblywoman Grace Napolitano has announced she does not intend to quit pursuing her objective in getting legislation passed to severely restrict access to vital records in California.  Genealogists, historians, librarians, and society leaders should enact emergency measures to notify the community of this danger to record access in California.
Our Los Alamos Family History Society exchange partner’s Sept 94 newsletter has an article by Curt Witcher-the Federation of Genealogical Societies president entitled, ‘The Genealogist’s Library-A Look Toward the Future’ and Curt suggests scenarios as to what will be available on the Information Superhighway.  Also included in the issue is an article on ‘Publishing Your Family History’.

The Sep 94 issue of The Generator of St Mary’s County, Maryland is a hodgepodge of various society related items from the final report from the past president to the current budget.

Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library opens its gateway to the Internet with 26 modems.  Using a network system called Sailor, the program is menu based and uses a retrieval system called “Gopher” Sailor’s Internet address is  The phone number for Baltimore is 410-605-0500.


Besides donations, the Whittier Area Genealogical Society acquires books for their library and the use of its members by having 50/50 envelopes.  If an individual is interested in having a book in the library, they make a suggestion that it be placed on the open list for a particular month.  The cost is divided in half.  If there is enough interest to donate the first half of the money needed on the part of the membership, the society then kicks in the other half and the book is purchased.  WAGS has over 50 books EACH for the states of Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.  What a way to build a library.

The Atlantic Slave Trade Database Project has been undertaken by the W E B DuBois Institute for Afro-American Research, based at Harvard University.  Its goal is to consolidate a variety of published and unpublished sets of information on the slave trade on the Atlantic Seaboard from the mid 1600’s to the mid 1800’s.  For more information or to offer data or support contact David Eltis, Department of History, Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada K7L 3N6.  The e-mail address: ELTISD@QUCDN.QUEENSU.CA.  (May-June94 Genealogical Helper)

Historic Resources, Inc.  PO Box 329, Bountiful, UT 84011-0329 has a list of 19 states for which they have marriage records on disc.  The main reason I bring this up is to show the availability of records on electronic media.  At the time I saw the ad, the disc information was on sale.  As technology continues to improve, the cost of these records will also drop.

Joseph Rhea family record:  Matthew II was married (name unknown) and had 4 sons.  He later married Elizabeth McLain of Ireland and had five children, one of whom was Joseph Rhea (1715-1776).  Joseph married Elizabeth Mcilwaine.  He was a minister of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland before coming to America in 1770.  He settled in Maryland and was pastor of Piney Creek Presbyterian Church.  In 1775, he came to the Holston Country and purchased about 2,000 acres of land.  The family moved in 1777.  He was the father of 6 sons and 2 daughters.  They married, established their homes and raised large family.  Kathern Rhea Tate, 529 Fairview School Road, Piney Flats, TN 37686.
The Gregg family record:  William Gregg (b ca 1720 d Winchester, VA), married Janet Rankin about 1750 in Maryland.  The family moved from Carroll Co, MD {for the time period it would be either Frederick or Baltimore Co, MD.  Can any of our readers add to this? TDL} to Winchester, VA.
James Gregg was one of the 3 original elders ordained by Rev Samuel Doak in 1782 in  the New Bethel Presbyterian Church, Piney Flats, TN.  He was the first school teacher of the Fork Community.
Rev Joseph Rhea was the leader of the flock known as the Piney Creek Church, Taneytown, MD.  In 1775, he was in Holston County (now Sullivan Co, TN).  He returned to MD to organize a group of church members to migrate to the Holston Country.  Among the names who went to Tenn upon his recommendation along with James Gregg were:  Allison, Berry, Hodge, Hughe, King and Massengill.  The pioneer families intermarried as history reveals.  Barbara A Bishop, Route 1, Box 79-AA, Tickfaw, LA 70466

New in the library:

FRECOGS is the very happy recipient of a large donation of genealogies, research reference books and magazines from the home of George and Donna Valley Russell.  The Russells are moving to New Market from Middletown, and donated about 15 boxes of materials to the society.  Unfortunately there is not enough room at the Family History Center for the collection and it currently sits in my basement-along with 80% of my own books, I might add.  I will be sorting through them to add items slowly to the FHC-so as not to overwhelm space there.  Added items will be listed here.  Duplications and older resource books will be auctioned at FRECOGS meetings.  See you there.

The John Jackson and Esther Ann Werts Family History is a largely contemporary listing of the cousins, and the family stories, of the compiler, Philip W Allen and Mrs Paul R Coffman.  Referenced mainly from word of mouth, secondary sources and county histories, this 348 page, paper back, 5 x 8 book is available for $20 from the compiler at 2655 South Rosanna St, Las Vegas, NV 89117-3043, or from Mrs Coffman, 3638 South Broadway, Springfield, MO 65807.  There is a relationship reference chart and descendants charts at the end of the book, as well as an index.  A novel idea is the statistical section which lists number of persons per generation, age at death, marriages and divorces, age at marriage and education, among others.
The numbering system makes it difficult to keep track of the relationship of the cousins and it would be helpful to have the charts between the different family groups.  Frederick County is mentioned early in Part 1, as is Loudoun Co, VA.  This reviewer wonders if there is any relationship between the WERTS and the VIRTS family of Loudoun Co, VA.

Also in the library is a replacement for the Atlas of Frederick County, Maryland from actual surveys by and under the directions of D J Lake CE, published by Titus 1873 that has gone missing.  If you’d like your own personal copy, it is available for $10 from the Frederick County Landmark Foundation, Inc, 1110 Rosemont Ave, Frederick MD 21701.

Mrs Betty Lou (Parks) Carter, 209 Crabb Ave, Rockville, MD (301)-424-5781.  Betty had 4 children placed in foster care in 1963 by Montgomery County Social Services, without her consent.  She says, under intimidation by the agency, she was persuaded to sign surrender papers in 1965.  She has found 3 of her four children and is now looking for her son, James Leroy SCALF, born 13 May 1858 at Montgomery General Hospital, Olney, Montgomery Co, MD.
She was told that Jame’s first adoption didn’t work out and he was adopted for the second time at age 11 by the Harford Co, MD Social Services Agency.  James has twice contacted Harford County Social Services seeking information on his family, in 1984 and 1987; in 1987 he was married and had a son.  Despite this and the fact that Betty has placed a “Waiver of Confidentiality” on file with them, the agency refuses to contact him to tell him that his birth family is interested in finding him.

I have a 1850 census when my ggndmother Sarah Elizabeth COLLIFLOWER was only one year old, but the 1860 census seems incomplete.  They lived in Montgomery Co in 1850, but I found nothing in that Co in 1860.  I had 2 aunts that we always assumed to be Sarah’s sisters so they should be all listed in 1860.  Sarah was married to William Wallace MCINTOSH on 10/24/1867 in Montgomery County.  I am also tracking the STAHL family that settled in and around Washington, DC.  Ernest L Willie, 5710 School Rd, Macon, GA 31206.
