Bucey-Frederick County, MD/Jamaica
Posted by: William Viers Date: August 05, 2001 at 10:52:59
  of 822

One of the Viers forums just received some information of which we are trying to verify relating to Luranar (Lurana or Susanna) Bucey who married Nehemiah Viers (probably in Frederick County, Maryland around 1750-1756). They resided for some time in the Rock Creek One Hundred area and may have been married at the Rock Creek Parish then went to Washington County, PA.

THIS IS THE INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM A CAHILL RESEARCHER WHO HAS A CONNECTION TO THE BUCEY LINE AND WE ARE TRYING TO VERIFY:
"My connection to this line is through Phillip E. Cahill, son of Dennis
Cahill and Dianah (Dinah) Bucey (Busey). My brother gathered copies of old letters, documents, etc. from various family members. These were handed down in the family. One of the documents was the last will and testament
of Griffith Bucey, dated January 14, 1773. It states that he lived in the
parish of Kingston in the county of Surry in the Island Carpenter, Jamaica. He left some money to his spinster house keeper, the rest
to his "dearly beloved sisters Luranea? Bucey "wife of Nehemiah Viers" and Dianah
Bucey all of Rock Creek in Frederick County in the Province of Maryland."

Question is, have any Bucey researchers come across Bucey's in Frederick County, MD who may have Bucey connections in Jamaica, or come across any connections with a Griffith Bucey in Jamaica as noted in the above quote?

I would also like to find any info on any Bucey names in Frederick County, MD in the 1740 to 1780 time period, especially in the Rock Creek One Hundred area.

Also, does anyone have any knowledge of Rock Creek Parish and if there are any available 1700's records of this Parish if it does/did exist?
