I have the following info: Somerset Co, MD Historical Quarterly Vol VIIm, Pg 30 - PETTY, Jesse m. MOFFET, Polly Feb 19, 1803 (Finley). How can I obtain a copy of this marriage record? Is the 1800 census online for this area? I am not sure if Finley is the minister or a place.

And I would like to know what or where Coventry Parish is. Is it a church? And who would I contact about obtaining records from this place? Thanx in advance.
I am looking for any info I can find about my grandfather's siblings: (1) George S. CLUFF b.1869 d. abt1955. He had two wives, namely, Elizabeth GRAY (GREY) and Sarah E. MUIR; and (2) Robert CLUFF for whom I have no dates but know he had two sons, Marion and Edward, and lived in Snow Hill, Md. There was a third brother, (3) William, who I know nothing about, and two sisters, (4) Etta Mae b. 1880 d. 1951 who married Jefferson DRYDEN and they had thirteen children, and (5) Mary E., who I believe married a HOLLAND.

If there is anyone who can give me some ideas on what happened to these brothers and and sisters and their families, please get in touch with me.

MCCLEMMY, 1700, Somerset Co. This ancestor is in the Jones ancesteral line and I notice that there are others that have it too. Has anyone found out from where he hailed from? Somewhere in my notes I saw a snippet on a land grant but can't find it. Anyone with the answer out there?
Genealogy.com lists parts of a webGED with Levin MILES (1797) and children that include daughters Milcah and Attalanta. I am trying to find the source of this webGED or to otherwise complete and verify this information. The 1783 Somerset tax list shows a Levin MILES at Great Annamessex and I assume that this is the same Levin. A Milcah MILES was married to John TUNNELL in Woodford County, KY, in 1812. I suspect that she may be the above Milcah but in Kentucky she has been misidentified. In Kentucky she was associated with the Whittingtons who migrated there from Somerset.
James GREAR was transported by Samuell GIBBONS of Bristol in the ship Batchelor, arriving in Maryland 02 Nov 1674. Samuell GIBBONS assigned his land rights (assigned to him by the passengers, probably, to pay for their transportation) to Robert RIDGELY, who then sold those land rights to several different people. Robert RIDGELY sold the land rights for the transportation of James GREAR (and others) to Thomas SELBY of Somerset County, MD on 06 Nov 1674. Did James GREAR remain with Thomas SELBY as his indentured servant for a period of time? For how long? Or, did someone else buy those land rights from Thomas SELBY? James GREAR was in Baltimore Co, MD, by 1686 when he witnessed a deed, where (probably) he married Ann TAYLOR, and where he probably died a few years later. Three big puzzles: 1 - Was James GREAR's previous home in England, or Ireland? Opinions differ on this. 2 - Where was James GREAR/GRIER(SON) during the years between 1674 and 1686? (His life was probably not his own for about the first seven years after his arrival.) 3 - Did James GREAR/GRIER marry before he came to America (and/or after he arrived in America), before he married Ann TAYLOR? Any information on this James GREAR (or GRIERSON) will be greatly appreciated.
