Frederick County, Maryland Marriage References and Family Relationships, 1748-1800 - Henry C. Peden, Jr. and Veronica Clarke Peden. This volume is a comprehensive compilation of marriage references, actual and implied, in early Frederick County, Maryland from its formation in 1748 through 1800. Marriages were gleaned from published license books, land records, probate records (wills and administration accounts), court records (judgments and indentures), military pension records, church records (marriages, births and baptisms), bible records, newspapers, some family histories and other documented secondary sources.
This book is much more than just names and dates. In many instances the reader will find dates of birth and death, names of parents, children, siblings, other relatives, places of residence, occupations, military ranks, and other information. In many cases there is ample information about family relations to enable the researcher to establish a family lineage chart for three generations. Marriages have also been noted for some persons who resided in other countries, states, and counties and had Frederick County connections. The reader should also note that some of the churches that were originally located in Frederick County became part of Washington County when it was created in 1776 and in Carroll County when it was created in 1837.
