This line is in my research. I am interested in the documentation for your Custer names.
I am stuck on documentation for my 3rd great grandfather, Emanuel Custer who m. Ann Miller.
I have found the two in the Allegany Co., MD deeds, etc. c1800 forward.

This line is believed to be my next step back. However, this line is a German family that came over in the Revolution.

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Volume 96, page 154
Mrs. Carrie Custer Copeland.
DAR ID Number: 95474
Born in Chariton, Iowa.
Wife of Howard Darlington Copeland.
[p.154] Descendant of Jacob Custard, as follows:
1. James Brawford Custer (1824-93) m. 1st 1847 Susanna Millan (b. 1827).
2. Stephen G. R. Custer (1798-1847) m. 1819 Nancy Brawford (1802-36).
3. Jacob Custard m. 1776 Margaret Lear (1759-1838). Jacob Custard (1750-1833) was living in Rockingham County, Va., 1775, when he was drafted,serving in the Virginia militia. In 1832 he applied for a pension. His claim was allowed. He was born in Germany; died in Perry County, Ohio.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
