Hi Diane,Lately, I have tried not to engage in discussions about William Iiams. However, I found this information in the "Genealogy of Demas Garber Iams & Elizabeth Anne Dunn." This information was sent to me by Dorothy Iams Sollinger. I have seen this information elsewhere myself, but right now I can't put my hands on it. I would think that if the archives were searched in Maryland, that this source might be found. I also believe that the reference to being a "member of the Established Church, in good standing in All Hallow's Parish" could be the Church of England. Demas Iams was the son of Elisha Iams and Cynthia Garber. Demas Iams was the father of Elisha B. Iams better known as E. B. Iams.
