A distant cousin saw one of my many queries. The family has a family Bible that lists a name of Robb or Robt.

In the PA Archives Series 5, I found a reference to a Sgt. Rob. LOVE who was in the Bedford militia under Capt. Thomas FERGUSON. The "G" listing was Gabriel LOVE.

Also, found a reference to Henry and Robert LOVE, and a Jacob LESHER who were Contintental Troops in the Artillery. Henry was a gunner who lost his left leg in the Battle of Yorktown. Jacob and Robert were listed as "Matross". What's a matross??

Anyone out there have any data on Henry or Robert LOVE? Or Gabriel? I have checked the Abstracts for Rev. War Pensioners. There is no Robert (or G.F.)

I assume LEATHERWOOD was her married name. She shows in the 1850 census of Cumberland Md as head of household with a daughter Mary Ann age 5 years. Mary Anne was born June 14 1846. Deborah gives her age in the 1850 census as 25 so she may have been born in 1825. Would like to find a marriage of a LEATHERWOOD to Deborah. Mary Ann married Samuel WICKARD in 1869 but her name at that time was Mary Ann GILMORE. Have not been able to find any information on Mary Ann's marriage to a GILMORE. It would have been in the early 1860s. Both Mary Ann and Deborah died in the 1880s, and lived in Cumberland Md all their lives.

They were members of the Centre St Methodist Church in Cumberland. When I went there they told us that the burial ground next to the church were Mary Ann and Deborah were buried had been paved over for a parking lot! Thats hard to believe isn't it. Would appreciate any information anyone might have on Mary Ann, Deborah, or the parking lot that use to be a cemetery. ------- NAME: Maryann Hughes NOTE:P.O.
