This is a question I also need answered. My John Lane Sr. married a
Catherine Baker (daughter of Mary/Meri Becker/Baker and Joseph Baker), from
near the Taneytown/Libertytown area of the old Frederick Co., Md. John Lane
was an apprentice to Martin Garver (Garber) in 1794, age 14 yrs.; John and
Catherine m. Jan 23 1805 Fred Co Md. The Garbers, Sailors, Lanes, Bakers and
many others moved approx 1809 or before to Washington Co., Pa. area . I have
no idea what churches they attended in Fred. Co., Md but they helped found
the Ten Mile congregation in Wash. Co., Pa. If they were not Brethren when
in MD, what other religion might they have attended? What is close to /
similar to being a Brethren?
I don't have parents for John Lane or where he came from. The apprentice
record on John Lane 1794 says "with no parents in this state".... some info
says our Lane family came from Philadelphia. Some family stories say John's
parents owned slaves and he disliked this, so he left his family... Some
sources say our family was Scotch-Irish, others say English, others say
German. Baker was spelled Becker, sounding more German than anything else.
Ah, so many mysteries!
So, what Brethren congregations were most active in Fred Co Md? And which
ones was the Sailor minister most involved in?
Any help appreciated!
