I am in possession of a letter (apparently found in a trunk) that links my Mother’s family to one of the Richardson families in Maryland. I am trying to identify the William Richardson and sister indicated in the following letter. The Margaret Comes mentioned was born circa 1730 in or around Middletown,Frederick County, Maryland; married Bartholomew Boogher; and died in 1796 The letter reads as follows (Note that I have opted to provide the following letter just the way he received it ... lacking proper punctuation, use of possessives, capitalization, grammar, etc.) Millerville Henry Co. Ind. June the 11th 1882 Mr. G. W. Myers Dear Sir I received your note of the eight and with pleasure proceed to answer it as well as I can I will send you names as you requested Just as I got them from _. B. Rohrer of Dayton he had a copy of old grand Father Bookers will he stated that he had two wives and his last wifes name was Margret Comes before he married her and she was your grandmother Crulls mother There is fourteen children of the Booker family as you will see and your grand mother is the yongest (sic). Mr. Rohrer stated to me that there was nor more than seven of those belonged to the last woman and perhaps not more than five so you see that they are not all heirs to this lease as it comes through the last woman. I will give it as I got it the leases at Baltimore was made to William Richardson and his sister William Richardson died leaving no heirs but his sister then she being married to a man by the name of Comes they had one child which was Margaret Comes She married Bartholomew Booker, being his Second wife and being the mother of your grandmother Crull whose name was Hannah Booker. So you see the fortune by those leases belong to the last woman children not to the whole Booker family for it come by the last woman and never was a Booker lease but belonged to Margret Comes from her mother and of core belongs to her posterily. When I came home from Dayton I rote (sic) your mother a letter about the matter so that she could some of you to look after it now you want to fix out a genealogy of your mothers rather of her Fathers and mothers family and send it to Rohrer so that he will know who is heirs you will state what your grand fathers name was This way Jacob Crull and Hannah Crull her maiden name being Hannah Booker daughter of Bartholomew and Margaret Booker then give all of your mothers brothers and sisters names that have heirs Rohrers address is S. B. Rohrer 114 Third Street Dayton Ohio That is all the information that I can give you yours truly

Looking for any information at all on my gg-grandfather, Elijah James RUSSELL. He was born about 1832 in Penn. per the 1860 census of Baltimore. He was a Civil War Vet. He married Caroline Brown on 4 Aug 1858 in Baltimore. He died 4 Oct 1872. They had 4 children; John T.(b. 7 jun 1859), Elijah J. (b. 12 Feb 1866), Allen T. (b 26 Dec 1867), and one more (name unknown) Allen was born in Annapolis and his 2 older brothers in Baltim. Caroline was born Mar. 1837 in MD. (probably Baltimore) to John & Phebe BROWN. The RUSSELL's lived in Baltimore in 1860 with her parents. Both Elijah James RUSSELL and John BROWN were "mariners" then. The RUSSELL's were living in Annapolis in the 1870 census and his occupation was "fisherman". The RUSSEL's were still living with the BROWN's in 1870, but Caroline's father, John BROWN, was not listed (believe he may have died). Caroline never re-married after Elijah James (he may have gone by just James) died. I have copies of his pension files. Please forward any info on either of these RUSSELL's or BROWN's. I am really wanting to know about them, especially Elijah James RUSSELL. John BROWN was born about 1801 in MD. Mrs. Phebe Brown was born about 1807 in either MD. or CONN. Also note: Elijah James and Caroline were married in her father's home by Rev. Henry FURLONG. He was a minster of the M.E. Church Baltimore Annual Conference, but have reason to believe that he was retired before preforming this marriage.
