Carroll County

My fifth great-grandparents Elizabeth ANGEL before 1754-1821 and Johann ZUMBRUN before 1755-1819, to Taneytown, Carroll County, Maryland, about 10 miles south of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with the historic 1776 Dobbin House Tavern nearby. John ZUMBRUN is listed as an Elder in history of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. Interesting to note in this history at the 1811 dedication of the first brick church, that a German speaking pastor hoped English would NEVER be spoken in his church! My how times change.

Elizabeth's parents Philip Karl ANGEL (Charles ENGELL) about 1723 Palantine to before 1811 Carroll County, Maryland and Juliana between 1727-1737 to between 1783-1786 of Carroll County, Maryland. Daughter Julia Anna married George Michael Renneker. Philip Karl Angel age 20 arrived September 2, 1743 on the Ship "Loyal Judith". They were active members of the Dutch Reformed Church of Silver Run, Frederick County, Maryland established in 1762 now the St. Mary's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Carroll County, Maryland. The church was established in 1762 and many early burials in the cemetery across the road lack tombstones and early records to 1848 were lost. Some tombstones inscriptions are online. Several Angels are buried in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery in Taneytown, Carroll County, Maryland where Jacob Zumbrun is also buried.

Philip Angel was likely the son of John and Margaret Angel of Frederick County, Maryland.

There are ANGEL's and ZUMBRUN's from an 1889 reading buried in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery - Taneytown

Taneytown's most famous son is Francis Scott Key who wrote the Star-Spangled Banner in 1814 during the War of 1812 after the Battle at Fort McHenry which is now a National Park.

Genealogy research is never complete, important details might be missing, and often contains errors, so let me know if your research contradicts mine. My Indiana and Ohio family research comes from conversations with relatives, scrapbooks, library research, online records, visits to courthouses, final resting places on family farms and cemeteries.
