Where did these Permars go?
John, Richard, Benjamin and William Permar, all children of James Permar(died 1787)18th century farmer of Caroline County Maryland.
These 4 boys are listed in their father's will in 1787 but they are never listed as head of household in any of the Caroline County Maryland censusus.
Their father was James Permar, the brother of William who died in 1779 and according to the family history letter,' fought alongside Lafayette.'We know this James married Sarah Young in 1737 in Church Hill, Maryland. (which isn't too far away)And we know if the family history letter is correct this James and his brother William grew up in Wales. A poem with the history of Greensboro Caroline County Maryland, near where they farmed reads a French community came to settle in 1756.
Wondering if anyone has anything on these Permars.
