Hello Helen-
I'll have to do a bit of a search. It's been a while since I've been in the Maryland Archives. It's all there, though, complete with Dinah (Diana?) and her first marriage to William Nuthead, her next one to Manus Deveron, and her next two, one to the German immigrant Stephan Otey, and the final one to Samuel Asa.
Dinah outlived all her husbands except Samuel, but appears to have had children with just two: William Nuthead, and those were William and Susannah; Stepan Otey, with whom she had a son, Stepah, Jr.
She had a stepdaughter, Catherine Deveron, but there's no record of any other Deveron children (although they may have been grown and out of the household by then) or of her having any children with Manus. His will appears to confirm this. He speaks of William and Susannah as being Nutheads, and calls them his "children-in-law."
My Clary cousin's wife ordered a copy of Manus's will. I've seen it. It's pretty straightforward and there's nothing exciting in it with the exception of the definition of William and Susannah's father, and of his own daughter, Catherine.
I'll try to find the Maryland Archives site. It's quite interesting.
Also, when Karel Whyte was alive, she sent me a transcription of the Carson Letter, which says that a Swearingen daughter married a Clary. This would be Sarah/Keziah marrying William Clary. They are my fifth great-grandparents.
