Henry Loar Born 1812, Eckhart Mines , MD.
I am searching for the widow and daughter of Henry Loar. He was the son of Jacob and Sarah (Echart) Loar of Echart Mine, Allegeany Co. MD. He married Catherine Winters and he died in 1852. His wife, Catherine, was a widow for many years; but eventually remarried a Christopher Staup(spelling?) They lived at Hanging Rock, WV, where she died on June 5, 1894.
Henry Loar's daughter, Mary Ann Loar, married a William L. Oates, farmer of Capon, who was in the 18th VA cavalry in the Civil War. She was married in Cumberland, MDon the 3rd of October in 1865. I would appreciate any information that might be available. I have the Loar Genealogy, written by my great aunt, Emma Loar Gaddis, if that would be of any help.
