Trying to verify the marriage of Joshua EDGE and Elizabeth PONDER ca. 1740s. Does anyone have a source for this marriage?

Looking for lineage of Olivia ADAMS, my great-grandmother, who lived on Deal Island in Somerset County. She would have died between 1940-1950.

Looking for the lineage of Leon WEBSTER, born and lived on Wenona in Somerset County. He died in 1962. His wife was Julia Webster, who died in 1977, and both buried at St. Pauls in Wenona. We think that Julia's line goes to Joshua Thomas, if anyone has any lineage work from Joshua Thomas down.
I am searching for the surname LANKFORD from Somerset County, Princess Anne, Maryland. I am looking for the date of death and bruial of W. Hiram or Hiram W. LANKFORD, born there in the 1850s. I am also interested in what religious denomination they were, and the name and location of their church. Hiram was a justice of the peace, and since I cannot find him in the 1930 census, I am assuming that he died somewhere from 1920 - 1930.

I am the great niece of Elizabeth Maguire TILGHMAN who, along with her husband, owned Almodington during the 1950s. I am interested in finding out as precisely as possible the time period during which they owned the estate. I know I visited there as a small child, but have little recollection. My older cousins, however, vividly remember details of their visits there and we're all interested in learning how long the family owned the estate and any other interesting historical notes during that period.
Looking for infomation about Virginia WALLACE, born July 26, 1871 in the Crisfield area. She married Henry Hoff in Reisterstown, MD in 1890. Her death certificate states that her mother's maiden name was PARKS, and her first name was Elizabeth. Her fathers first name was not included. The certificate was very difficult to read. Virginia had a daughter in 1891. Following a divorce, her daughter was raised by another family in Baltimore. Virginia had a younger brother who was drowned.
