Where would I look for records from Apples Church in Thurmont, Frederick County, Maryland and from Elias Lutheran Church in Emmitsburg?
From Apples Church I am looking for, "Maryland Archive Volume 18", pages 45, 406, 653 which is a Memorandum of Descendent of my 5th great grandfather, Frederick Beard (also shown as Friedrich Barth)? Is this something that can be found at the Federal Archives?
From Elias Lutheran Church, I am looking for a baptism record for Friedrich Barth who was baptized on September 30, 1758. From what I understand Frederick was from the family of the first seven settlers of Emmitsburg.
I am also searching for a book called, "The Lilac Bush", but my local library does not have access to it or any of the other books I have tried to obtain.
What I am trying to find is any documentation on the parents of Frederick Beard, born September 09, 1758 in Mechanicsville, Frederick County. He was married to Maria Magdalena Weigle. I have seen information that Frederick's parents are John Beard and Chloe, but I would like to see any documentation on that if possible or find out where I can look.
