William & Elizabeth Cruse of Maryland in the 1700s
Seeking info on descendants/ancestors of William Cruse (b. about 1780, Maryland) and his wife Elizabeth, also of Maryland.They are listed in the 1850 Census in Baltimore, Maryland.Would also like any info on Unknown Monaghan, born about 1840 in Ireland and married to Elizabeth McLaughlin of Maryland.
William and Elizabeth Cruse had the following children:
Rebecca (b. about 1822),
William (b. about 1823), and
Charles (b. about 1828), all in Maryland.
Rebecca is my 3rd great grandmother.She married Joseph McLaughlin (b. 1810, Ireland) about 1830 in Maryland.Rebecca and Joseph McLaughlin had the following children:
Elizabeth (b.about 1841),
John (b. about 1843),
Joseph (b. about 1845), and
Jane (b. about 1847), all in Baltimore, Maryland.
Elizabeth is my great great grandmother.She married first a Monaghan, first name unknown, about 1860 or 1861 in Maryland.Unknown Monaghan was born in Ireland.It is believed that he probably died in battled during the Civil War but we have no proof.She married second Henry Fisher (b. about 1842, Maryland) before 1870 in Maryland.Henry Fisher's father was born in Bavaria, Germany.His mother was born in Maryland.
Elizabeth and Unknown Monaghan had the following children:
