Thank you for all your data.

My interest stems from the following found in Chancery Books of Carroll Co: bk 4 pp62-67 1847 Equity 215: Petition of John Bowman and Sarah Ann Switzer, by William Stansbury, her guardian and next friend. Sale of real estate. Peter Arbaugh died testate, leaving widow Mary, who died c 1846. Relationship of John Bowman and Sarah Ann Switzer not established. Property location not established, but was site of a tavern house.

It is reported that Peter adopted John Bowman.

6 Nov 1838 Sarah Ann Switzer's mother Elizabeth indentured her at age 8 on 12 Aug 1838 until she reached age 16 ( in 1846 ) to Mary Arbaugh.

Possible parents/in-laws of Elizabeth:Jacob 1770 PA d.20 Jun 1854 & Susanna Rinehart 1776 PA. d.25Nov 1827 (both bur Pipe Creek Cemetery Uniontown)Gfather: Ulrich Switzer. Elizabeth married William Stansbury 18 Feb 1861 Carroll Co MD.

Burials @ Wolfe Cemetery Union Bridge:Ulrich Switzer 25 Jan 1821 @ 48y3m28d and Rudolph 18 Mar 1829 88y4m3d. Their father:Matthias.
(note: a John Switzer on 9 Jul 1803 mentions a farm on Little Pipe Creek in connection with Evan Carmack,wife Mary... From Frederick County Ferretings by Walter E Arps transcribed from Frederick Co Herald.)

Carroll Co Guardianships 1837-1852: Peter Arbaugh. William Stansbury gdn to Sarah Ann Switzer, devisee. re: money from sale of real estate and names those paid for goods and services. Bond dated 8 Mar 1847.

I would hope to be able to discuss this with you as I have been trying to link my ancesstral line and the children they raised for years....
I think your work holds the key to Sarah Ann Switzer's mother, Elizabeth, and if they are both related to Isaac...
