Donna, This is my line also. I believe they come from New York (information in the Kingston Reformed Church records) then to New Jersey, unsure about the amount of time in Maryland other than they would have had to travel down the Old Monocacy Trail through Frederick County, in order to get to Virginia or straight over the mountains to Cumberland where they would have picked up a wagon train over Braddocks Pass to end up in old Ft. Redstone and thus on to Washington/Greene Co. ,Pa. and thus Mason County.

I also found reference to Blooming Hill Road and have found there is a road of this name outside Cumberland near the Deep Creek Lake area.

Was wondering how much information you actually have on Christinia. I have a great deal on her brother Anthony but would like more on her as she married my 3rd great grandfather Reason van Matre. I have his Civil war file, tombstone photo, second wifes photo and some other things but would like more on her. nfrank2004@comcast.net
