> Subject: [Q-R] Quaker Meeting Houses in Pipe Creek Hundred, MD?
> Hello, I was wondering if anyone might know about any meeting houses in Pipe
> Creek Hundred, MD? I'm trying to trace an ancestor of mine, Joshua Parrish.
> According to church records, he converted from "the Society of Friends" to
> Catholicism abt 1800, when he followed Prince Gallitzin to Loretto, PA.
> Joshua's wife, Barbary Timble's family was from Pipe Creek Hundred, MD,
> where they owned land. Her father was Catholic (and arrested as a Hessian
> in Albany in 1777), mother was Protestant. Joshua's parentage is unknown.
> Looking at the names of his sons however, I anticipate his father's name was
> John, Joseph, or James. He named one son George after his long deceased
> father-in-law. The birth order is UKNOWN. John could easily be the eldest
> (he's listed as born anywhere from 1792 to 1801 from different sources),
> he's the one who went with his father to communion in 1810, he took over the
> family land when his father moved closer to Loretto, and he was the first to
> be married, in 1818. Joseph or George, could, however, be the eldest. It
> appears at any rate they were born very quickly, and were likely all 4
> within about 8 years or less of one another.
> >From 1793 to 1795 (at least), Joshua was in Germany twp, York Co, PA,
> working as a miller at a sawmill owned by one John Parr, and after his death
> sometime before 1795, his widow, Elizabeth Parr. He's NOT listed as single
> on the tax rolls, so my assumption is Joshua was married by 1793.
> I'm currently looking at Pipe Creek Hundred, but if anyone knows of any
> Quaker Meeting houses near Germany twp, that were in PA, I'd be glad to
> check those out as well. As no one has found them yet, my personal belief
> is that Joshua went to a meeting house whose records have not yet been
> published (or at least not widely).
