Patterson Family

Lily Powell Patterson was born in Perryman, Harford County, Maryland, on July 30, 1873, daughter of Olivia Claggett Powell and Frederick Ethelred Patterson. The Pattersons had been in Perryman since the early eighteenth century. The first Patterson of whom we have record was Robert Patterson, born in 1715. The Pattersons were active members of St. George's Spesutia Church in Perryman. Robert Patterson and Jane Little (daughter of George Little) were married around 1740--marriage not listed in St. George's church records. Jane Little was indicted for bastardy in 1738/9 and again in 1739/40. It seems likely that their daughters Sarah (b. 1739) and Cynthia (b. 1741) were conceived out of wedlock, although their births are listed in the parish registers as children of Robert and Jane Patterson. Related families included the families of John Hall of Cranberry, Edward Beedle, George Goldsmith, George Little, Joseph Presbury, Luke Raven, William Robinson, Detmorus Sternbergse (Stansbury), and many other early Baltimore and Harford County families.

Stier Family

The Stier family is first found in Frederick County, Maryland. The progenitors in Maryland were Jacob Stier and his wife Barbara Muellerin. Jacob and Barbara were probably German, either immigrants themselves or descendants of the German Palatine settlers of Pennsylvania or Frederick County. Their children moved west and south. Those that stayed in Frederick County married descendants of old Maryland families--the "Anne Arundel Gentry"--such as Burgess, Chew, Carroll, Maccubbin, Mackelfresh, Dorsey, Hammond, etc. Later Stier descendants moved to Baltimore and Washington DC.

Children of Jacob Stier:

Cornelius--probably went to Ohio and on to Illinois
Elizabeth--probably stayed in Maryland
Mary Ann--stayed in New Market
Rhoda--lived in Darnestown, Montgomery County, Maryland
Susannah--probably stayed in Maryland
William--went to West Virginia
Jacob--went to Ohio
Daniel--went to North Carolina
Frederick--Methodist preacher in Maryland
Henry (my line)--stayed in New Market
John--went to Ohio, descendants now in Iowa

Barbour

Achsah Barbour was the second wife of Hamilton Stier. Her father was Johnzy Barbour. I have been unable to find his family. Her mother was Catherine Longsworth, daughter of Solomon Longsworth and Lucy Nelson.
