    3. On January 24, 1775, in a meeting at the Frederick Court House, a county government was formed to be exercised by a committee of observation consisting of a large number of the leading citizens of the county. This action was due to a collapse of state government and the abdication - in effect - by Gov. Robert Eden. On January 24, 1867, Jacob Engelbrecht, Frederick mayor and diarist, hosted a Masquerade Social with 18 men and seven women in attendance. On January 24, 1927, Perry McCleery, publisher with his brother Valentine of The Moon, and composing room foreman at The News - and The Frederick Post after 1916 - for 40 years, died suddenly at his North Market Street home.

    1. [MDFR] Problem with your postings
    2. Dorinda, I guess this is your email addy. I have a problem with the content that you publish. That is, I have a number of lines going back into Baltimore or Frederick or Washington Counties of MD, but ALL these lines left the area prior to 1800. My problem is that I never see anything posted on early county records, pre-1800. I am connected to the Herringtons and Ewings of Baltimore County, the Whitehairs and Rineharts of Frederick County, and the Rineharts of Washington County, but all had left these areas prior to 1800. Rinehharts went west to Preston County WV (established later), Herringtons went to York County, Ewings went even further west quickly. And, some other family lines. Is there any reason to keep up with your postings, or is it a futile hope that you will find earlier information to post. Paul
