I'm looking for information on Christopher ENTLER and Mary SCHMIDT (SCHMEIDER). They are my g- grandparent's. Mary had a sister named Clara and a brother named William. Her sister Clara, had a large family. The boys in that family supposedly had a band that was very popular in the Frostburg area. Christopher and Mary had four daughters and a son who died in early childhood. The girls were Edith, Lena, Mary and Anna (Anne). Anne was my grandmother who married Louis RANK. I am trying to do my family's geneology on my mother's fahter's side (ENTLER). Anne was born in Eckhart, MD, but I cannot find any information on her father, Christopher ENTLER.

James THOMPSON and Mary BARNETT wed and lived two doors down from the Clarysville Inn. They died about 1870 and 1880, respectively. They were Catholic, but we can find no record of them at St. Michael's in Frostburg. It's possible that in later years they may have stayed with children anywhere from Mt. Savage to Lonaconing or elsewhere. Regardless, we have no record of their deaths or burials. We've heard that it's possible they may have been buried near the Clarysville Inn, and when the Old National Pike was replaced by US40, their gravesites may have been paved over. Has anyone heard of such an event?

I was told may years ago upon visiting Maryland that some of the family worked on the canal and that they lived in the canal house. This is the canal that is near the brigde that was not a bridge on the Potomac (anyone who has ever been on the bridge will understand what I mean.) I think this is close to SPRING GAP/ OLDTOWN AREA. Could this be checked in the canal book to see if Abner BISHOP or any MYERS or ARNOLDS are listed??? Thanks in advance for checking and THANKS so much for all the help I see you all give seekers of information everyday. You all do a AMAZING JOB!!!!!! Darlene(Bishop) Powell Putnam Co Ohio
