Marselas-Marcellus-Edason-Christopher-Mullen-Lee-Rhinehart-Canada-Balto-
Posted by: Helen Foster (ID *****4706) Date: May 28, 2011 at 10:18:06

Trying to find The Marselas and Edason connection to Canada-

spelling may vary

Researching John Edason Marselas born about 1780 Maryland

I believe the Edason (spelling may vary) is a family name of his mother or another family name-

I believe the family was from Canada and came to Maryland with the French expulsion.

They changed their name to Marselas, but their real name could be a French variation of that name.

In Canada they were in the leather business-I believe in Nova Scotia- In Balto they had a Shoe store on Baltimore Street- Hawes and Marselas Shoes---They also had a hat shop...French Millinery Shop



Spellings vary----

Looking for info on the Marselas family in Baltimore MD-

Here are death/burial info from Green Mount Cemetery with the listed Spelling variations.

? means that I cannot read the letter

April 9 1849 ?. H Marselas

May 11 1849 J ? Marsellas and Others.... (children???)

Jan 19 1850 Emily L Marsellas

May 8 1852 Elizabeth Marsellas

Jan 22 1853 J H E Marsellas and child

July 1 1853 Mrs E A Marsellas (I think this is the mother E T Marcella born 1798) absent on 1860 census

Mar 31 1856 E R (Marsellas) Christopher

Oct 22 1900 William Christopher and his wife Laura Mullens Christopher is also buried in the Marselas family plot.

I am trying to figure out additional generations before those listed here-Also, trying to figure out where they came from? Canada? other states? They just seem to all of a sudden appear in Balto...then moved to Virginia between 1850-1860

The family is on the 1850 census in MD...then in VA on the 1860 census.

Thanks
