I am working on info about:
William Henry Cryer (son of John Cryer and Mary),
b. 1822 Talbot County, MD,
d. 2/18/1873 Compton, St. Mary's Co., MD,
m. 23 Feb 1846
Elizabeth Ann Thompson,
b. 9 Nov 1826 Saint Mary's Co, MD
d. 8 Oct 1873, Location: ???
I am descended from John William Cryer Sr., William. Henry's grandson. JWC Sr. died 25 Feb 1955, but in one of the obituaries, it indicated that he went to Louisiana and worked there for several years. In discussions with my grandmother, now 85, she recalls there being family in LA, but does not have any current contact info or remember the particulars and thinks the last time she was there was in the late 40's. She does remember "Metarie, LA" and indicated something about a lumber yard owned by the Cryer family in the early 1900's. I know that this may be a long shot, but I know that there is a link between the Louisianna Cryers and the Maryland Cryers of (Talbot and St. Marys County).
The children of William Henry Cryer were:
William T. Cryer b. Abt 1847
Mary Taylor Cryer b. 2 Mar 1849
Elizabeth Olivia Cryer b. 1850
James Henry Cryer b. 26 Dec 1851
Mary Francis Cryer b. 1854
John Cornelious Cryer b. 18 Jan 1857
Eliza Ann Cryer b. 1859
George W. Cryer b. Aug 1861
Oscar Melvin Cryer b. 1863
Edward C. Cryer b. Nov 1866
Ella M. Cryer b. May 1869
If anyone can help me with either a connection or with further MD information, I would really appreciate it.
