Chancery Papers dated 25 Feb 1835 in both Kent and Queen Anne's Counties:

RE: Estate of John Whaland
Nathaniel Wiley vs. Thomas H. Whaland, Eliza G. Whaland, Samuel Merritt, Sarah Ann Merritt, John W. Walker, and Robert W. Whaland.

The Samuel Merritt is mine; I'm trying to place the others.

Sarah Ann Whaland m. Samuel Merritt
22 May 1828 in Queen Anne's County, Maryland

I'm trying to find Sarah Ann's ancestry.
She's clearly related to Thomas H. Whaland, Eliza G. Whaland and Robert W. Whaland. She was likely an heir of John Whaland, whose estate was being contested by Nathaniel Wiley. Who John W. Walker is, I haven't a clue perhaps the husband of a Whaland?
