I see a couple names on this list that I recognize, and hope they don't take offense to my posting here since they've been helping me on my Dayton ancestry:-)
I'm currently looking for information concerning the Norris family of Maryland, specifically Sarah C. Norris born February 22, 1818 in MD, and a possible older brother of Sarah's Upton Norris born about 1816 in Md. I do not know for a fact that they were siblings, but he appears in the Ohio, Montgomery County, Madison Twp. census record for 1850, and she supposedly moved to Montgomery County with her husband William H. Rowe somewhere right around that time.
According to the 1850 census Upton was 34 years old b. MD wife was Sarah b. MD they had two children at this time: Cecelia Norris age 9 b. Ohio [Abt. 1841] Alburtes Norris age 7 b. Ohio [Abt. 1843]
Sarah is one of my ggg grandmothers, and I'd love to know which MD Norris family she came from. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
