David A. Lizar born abt 1831 in Hagerstown, Maryland
According to the Civil War record of David A. Lizar he was born in Hagerstown, Maryland abt 1831 where he lived with his parents. In 1864, while delivering lumber to New York he was robbed of all his money and belongings and proceed to join the Union Army rather than attempt to return to Maryland. After discharge from the war in 1865 he traveled to Illinois where he married Sarah Catherine Vantilburg who was previously married to a John Krise. I have been trying for years to find a birth certificate for him and information as to who his parents might of been (per his civil war record his parents and brothers remained in Maryland after the Civil War) from sources in the state of Maryland with no results. Therefore, I'm looking for anyone who may be able to give me some hints on how to find the above information. Any ideas or points in the right direction would be most welcome.
