Samuel Ward Friend and Sarah A. Friend of Garrett County, MD, Book II

ISBN: 978-1-5323-4289-9
By: Smith, Patrick


Samuel Ward Friend and his wife Sarah A. Friend and their descendants from Western, MD. Both the Samuel and Sarah can trace their lineage back to John Friend Sr of Friendsville, MD. I have found no photographs, diaries, personal papers or descriptions of Samuel and Sarah which could define them or their times. This book attempts to chronicle their lives as well as thousands of their descendants through US Census records, family bibles, land deeds, wills, estate records, photographs, personal histories, military accounts as well as birth, death and marriage records.
