Mary Slider was a prisoner of bondage on the Loyal Margaret, sailing from Newgate to Annapolis in June, 1726. She was charged with prostitution in England to win the trip across the ocean.

In Robert Barners' Baltimore County Families 1659-1759, Mary Slider is noted as having been tried for bastardy in 1730.

Peter Majors II m. Ann ?

John Samuel Majors listed in Revolutionary War Pension & Bounty land Warrant Application files for the Battle of Shallow Ford in the National Archives.

I am a descendant of John Samuel and have a pretty clear line on down.

This information has been compiled by a large number of sources and cannot be appropriately sourced here. I'm posting it so that we can put the pieces together and hope that someone has the missing pieces to put it all together.
