I would love information from your visit!I have lots of copies of primary sources on both the Ijams and Stockett line.So much so it would take me hours to type it in here.I am happy to send your my family tree maker notes but to do so I need your email address.
For the group and Judy (since someone asked).
Captain John Ijams b. 1712 All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel, Maryland, USAd. 9 Oct 1782 Anne Arundel County, MD.John's maternal Grandmother was Elizabeth Stockett daughter of Thomas Stockett and Mary Wells.John married Rebecca Jones.Their children: Anne b.1738 married Lewis Stockett b. 06 Aug 1724 Lewis was the son of Thomas Stockett (the son of the earlier one) and Damaris Welsh Elizabeth b. 1746 John b. 1750, First Lieutenant Mary b. 1752 William b. 1758 Isaac b. 1760 Rebecca b. 1764 Thomas Plummer b. 4 Apr 1773(I am down his line, he became a representative then a senator in Ohio)
If you are applying to DAR the 3 DAR # you want copies of are 453684 (Evelyn is down their son William Ijams Stockett to James Benedict Stockett), 625302 and 732359.They are $10 a DAR #.
In case you were curious, I have notes indicating John was a founding member of the still around South River Club.Indeed he was a member but so were a bunch of Thomas Stocketts so...which were members first?(membership is based on blood, only 25 members at a time).
Don't forget to check out Ijamsville while you are over there, it was started but the Grandson of John's brother Plummer (Plummer Ijams III) who allowed Baltimore & Ohio Railroad a right of way through his land & turned the Ijams mill into the Post office.Plummer became the post master of course & was a member of the MD Legislature(Iams of America & Ijamsville, the story of a country village of Frederick County by Charles E. Moylan).
