Please bear with me as I am new to this family and have become quite confused.
My interest is in my 6-great grandfather John Perrin(s) who lived in Frederick (now Washington) County Maryland. His first sourced contact with the Lazears (Joseph and Joseph Jr.) is in a will made out by Theodores Malott in 1750; John is named executor, and Joe and Joe Jr. are witnesses. Both John and Joe Jr. signed a petition sent to the Maryland Assembly in 1760 asking for a new church. After John died in 1769 Thomas and Joseph Lazear are listed on the estate inventory as "Two next of Kinn". And in 1783 a tax assessment from Washington County show Joseph and John Lazear as paying taxes on "Two Springs" and "Robinett's Lot", two parcels of land originally patented to John Perrin in Murley's Branch in present day Allegany County.
So I would like to conclude that one or both of John Perrin's daughters (Mary and Susannah) married a Lazear before 1769. But my initial attempts to understand this family in Maryland have led to great frustration. Are there more than one group of Lazears in the Maryland frontier in the mid eighteenth century? Who remained in Allegany County, MD, and who moved across the Mason-Dixon line to Bedford County, PA?
Can anyone help me here?
