Thanks to the work of Charles Often, I believe I found a new gr.gr.gr. grandmother in my husband's line. But it also creates a huge question for me. I'm researching Eliza Jane (Jennie) CESSNA b. May, 1859/60 in Pa. She married Perry DEETZ. I have this DEETZ family on the 1900 Allegany Co., MD census with 9 children. I have the social security registration form from the SSDI for Anamae ROLLINGS, my husband's gr. grandmother, listing Jane CESSNA as her mother. I've been hitting brick walls with this CESSNA line. The Cumberland Times transcript lists a death for Sydney Ann LYNCH "an Allegany Co. patient....the mother of Mrs. Perry DEETZ of this city." I've been reading census reports (Bedford Co., PA) for CESSNA's and found: 1870: William CESSNA - age 72 Ann LYNCH - age 49 Jane CESSNA - age 10 Charley HENNING (HERRING?) - age 6 1860: William CESSNA - age 62 William LYNCH - age 6 Jane LYNCH - age 2 Sydney LYNCH - age 36 Can any LYNCH researchers in Allegany Co. help me with this family? Thanks.

I'm interested in contacting any descendants of, or researchers interested in, Philip FLETCHER (1768- 1854)of Allegany County. Philip was born in Taneytown, MD., a son of Jacob and Maria Magdalena HESS FLETCHER. The surname was originally rendered "Floesser", and pronounced roughly "Floetzer." The FLETCHER family came to Bedford County, PA., in 1793.

Philip, the oldest child, relocated to the Pratt's Hollow area of Allegany County around 1825-30. He operated a tavern at the summit of Polish Mountain, just east of Flintstone on old Scenic 40. Philip's wife was the former Mary SULLIVAN of Taneytown. The family in Bedford County intermarried with the MEANS, WEIMER, O'NEAL, SPARKS, and SNYDER families, as well as many others. Philip and Mary had several children, some of whom married into the ELBIN, ELLIOT, and ADAMS families. In 1860, the Philip FLETCHER farm was sold to Hanson WILLISON, sheriff of Allegany County.
