I am looking for any one who may have information regarding the SCHEIMERS / SHIMERS who settled around 1749 in the area of Barton, Maryland. My first ancestor, Daniel SCHEIMER, came to America in 1749 with his brothers Frederick and Michael from Germany. Daniel Settled in Allegany County, Maryland.

His grandson, William SHIMER, was married in 1829 in Barton, Maryland. The family was Methodist. I don't have much information on Daniel SCHEIMER (ie. who he married, when and where; where he was buried, etc.). It is said that his son, James SHIMER, fought in the Revolution in Northampton County, PA. Daniel SHIMER's grandson William and Great Grandson, George W. SHIMER, moved to Calhoun County, WVa at the start of the Civil War.

I know that Peter GAREY (also seen as GEARY and GARY) married Mary RIZER 24 Aug 1810 in Allegany Co, Maryland. Two GARY daughters are mentioned in the will of their RIZER grandmother. These were Margaret and Elizabeth GRAY. Efforts to find this family in the Allegany Co. deeds and census have only been confusing.

I believe I have found the will of this Peter GAR(E)Y. He seems to have died in Aug 1870 in Allegany Co. He has 6 children mentioned in the will so probably was married after the death of Mary RIZER. Listed in the will are: Elizabeth b. 1816 d. 1871? Married to Daniel ASH and then to Henry MITCHELL. Julia b. ??? married Harry C. MARKS and lived in Somerset Co., Penn in 1870 Mary A. b.??? married John SHILLING and lived in Allegany Co, Md. in 1870 John (no definite info found) Joseph (no definite info found) If I have errors in the above, I would appreciate corrections.
