Various BEAUCHAMP/BERRY researchers have been trying for up to 25 years to find documention of the marriage of John BERRY to Nancy BEAUCHAMP in Kent County, DE or Somerset County, MD abt 1780 , but to no avail.

His will of 1756 left 5 children, all minors - (a) Bette, b. 10 Oct 1747, (b) Edward, (c) Priscilla, (d) John b. 1753 and (e) Nance. Nance married about 1778 in DE John BERRY who died 1789 DE. Had these children : William, John, Marcie (Morris) and Gracie. Nance (BEAUCHAMP) BERRY remarried in Kent Co., DE 14 July 1790 Day WILLIN. They were in Kentucky ca 1799. Reference was given as the Filson Club History Quarterly (Volume 28, 1954) "The Beauchamp Family" by Stith Thompson, former Dean of the Graduate School, Indiana University.

I am searching for information on Nicholas REDDISH, born around 1750 in England, came to Maryland sometime between 1750 and 1787. He lived in Somerset County, married a Nancy Ann Fitzgerald (unsure of last name). He had 10 children: Thomas, William, James, Sarah, Elizabeth, Eleanor, John, Nathan, Nicholas, and Edgar. Maryland Archives shows him farming in Somerset County, along with a Hiron REDDISH and a John REDDISH. I am trying to find where in England he came from, and if these two are related. Any information you'd like to share on any REDDISH, I have a lot of information from Nicholas to present day.
In Somerset County, Maryland, I am looking for any surnames related to BUTLER. If you happen to be one please make contact with me for information exchange. My Butlers go back to the middle 1700s and many are in Worcester County and in Somerset.
I'm investigating a possible link between my lines and the HITCH surname. Elijah ELLIS, b. ca 1780, m. Sarah "Sallie" _____. Their children were b. in Somerset Co Maryland. I'm wondering whether Sallie's maiden name was perhaps HITCH. Among Elijah and Sallie's children was Esther _Hitch_ ELLIS b. 1808. I wonder if she was given that middle name because it was her mom's name? Does anyone know of a Sarah/Sallie HITCH that fits?
My "Captain" Henry WHITE was born 20 Dec 1807 and died 24 Feb 1850. He married Sarah "Sallie" ELLIS (dtr of Elijah and Sarah ELLIS?) in 1828. Their children were Thomas William Hillman WHITE, Mary Elizabeth WHITE, Ann Marie WHITE, Sarah Ellen WHITE, Elizabeth Jane WHITE, Martha Washington WHITE, and Mary Emeline WHITE, born between 1831 and 1845. Henry and Sallie are buried near Shad Point, outside of Salisbury, Wicomico County. I have an old, circa 1920s family tree done for a WHITE Family Reunion that says Henry's parents were Joseph and Polly WHITE. The record of Henry's birth in Stepney Parish records confirms this. A source has said that Polly was a HILLMAN. An old newspaper article about Thomas William Hillman WHITE, also done in the 20s, gives Joseph and Polly's children as Henry, Hamilton, Peter and William. Does any of this ring a bell by any chance?
William BING or BYNG lived in Salisbury in 1815. He is found in Caroline County census in 1790 and 1800. Was Salisbury still in Somerset in 1815? Any information about him will be appreciated. He is linked to my missing link, but I don't know how. Anything at all, please.
