I do not recognize any of the surnames you listed, but my MAJOR family lived in that area and I have not been too successful in locating info about them. I thought I would add my surname to your list in case you come across them. In particular, John and Archibald MAJOR supposedly lived on the PA side and their brother, Thomas, on the MD side. My line is through Archibald, s/o of John (above) who came to Belmont Co., OH in the early 1800s. Old John died in PA in 1804. I have picked up info on all of them once they to OH but when they arrived in PA is a mystery, although it was prior to the Rev. War because John fought in it. Any hints or helps w/ my brick wall would be appreciated. Thank you.
