Has you can see from earlier post, Mary Crampton was born in Gapland "Crampton's Gap" Washington Co., MD. She was the daughter Thomas Crampton 4 Jul 1735 -20 May 1819. Thomas Crampton was married to Ann Mary Maria PATRICK 1739-28 Aug 1825. About 1761 Thomas Crampton settled in his homstead in eastern Washington Co., MD. It became know has Crampton's Gap.
His house is still standing to this day! They had a large family. Some sons went to Frederick Co., MD. Their prodigy still lives there. Some of that line went to west too. Other sons remained in Washington Co., MD close to Sharpsburg, MD.
Thomas Crampton's son Joshua Crampton..well his children went to Ohio.
Thomas Crampton's daughter Ruth Crampton married Thomas Jackson and ended up in VA. And Thomas Crampton's daughter Mary Crampton in 1799 married Joseph Wood. Census records show her children all born VA. I believe she may have lived in VA close to sister Ruth Crampton Jackson before she and husband made there way to Montgomery co., Kentucky. The Mount Sterling area I believe.
