Cook, Delaney, Young, Carroll in MD
I am also doing research on these surnames: Cook, Carroll, Young & Delaney in Maryland.
Dennis Cook was born in 1812 in Anne Arundel County. I haven't been able to find anything on him prior to 1870. Dennis married Annie Thomas who was born in Newburn NC. He did move his family to the DC area by the 1880's.
John Carroll was born in Aquasco, Md. His full name was John Henry Carroll and he was born Sep 1877. John married Mamie Hammond who was from Anne Arundel or Aquasco MD. I wasn't able to find him until the 1910 living in DC. Mamie mother maiden name was Snowden.
Henry Delaney was also born in Aquasco, MD. He married Lucinda. I think Lucinda maiden name was Adams. She did have a daughter named Elira Adams. I was able to locate them as far as the 1870's.
James Young was located in Surratts. He married Caroline Brooks. A family member believes that the Young's maybe connected to an Indian tribe but which one is not determined.
Any information on any of these surnames would help me out a lot. Each surname stayed in the Maryland & Dc area. I have hit several brickwalls with these names, so I am now trying to see if there is any connection to the FPOC.
