I am looking for anyone researching the following counties who has a "missing" George PARSONS prior to 1770: In Maryland: Kent, Queen Anne's, Caroline, Talbot, Dorchester, Wicomico, Somerset, Worchester and the complete state of Delaware. This George would probably have been born about 1740-1750. I am trying to locate the birthplace and parents of our George PARSONS who is first found in Guilford County, NC in 1770. Additional possible information about this George: his father may have been John (not sure), he married a Ruth (possibly Green/Greene), his estate in NC was called Parsons Chance, family given names include: James, William, Joseph, George, Evan, Catherine, Mary, Thomas and Robert. If you have a George Parsons who seems to have just disappeared prior to 1770 please contact me. If we can make a connection I can furnish you with a wealth of information to present day on all of his descendants.
I am currently working on genealogies of the DISHAROON and DORMAN families of Maryland's lower Eastern Shore. Would like any and all info on these families, especially Bible records and info on lines that left Maryland (DISHAROONs who moved to NC and GA, for instance). Will be glad to share info that I currently have. I am descended from Benjamin DISHAROON and his wife Amelia W. DORMAN, daughter of Levin and Leah DORMAN. We have not been able to prove Benjamin's parents.
When was Whitehaven, Maryland first called by that name and who was it that proposed the name? I'm wondering if the SHILES for whom Shiles Creek at Whitehaven is named may have come from Whitehaven, Cumbria.
