Thank You for your help.I had run across the name of Garret(t) Topping marrying Sara Duval in MD. and wondered if there was a connection to a Garret topping (born bef. 1725) who married (approx. 1745) to Scarburgh West in Accomack, Virginia. It was my thought that Maryland is above Accomack and people could have easily moved to Virginia. I was hoping to find his father,but I'm having absolutely no luck yet.
