I understand that there are several F-O-L-K lines residing in the (west) Virginia/Maryland/Pennsylvania area during the early to mid-nineteenth century. Fortunately, there are far fewer F-O-L-C-K families. I am having difficulty researching my line. If any of the following persons or relationships appear familiar, please respond to this posting:
Jacob FOLCK (b. abt. 1825 MD) married Rebecca MADDEN (d/o Keeley and Susan). They had only three children: John, Susan, and William Keeley.
William Keeley FOLCK (b. June 7, 1858 Somerset Co., PA; d. May 30, 1933 Allegany Co., MD) married Mary Jane LOGSDON (d/o Moses and Anna). They had eleven children: Anne, John, Edna, Royal, Bertha, Hannah, Ada, Mamie, James, Emma, and Charles.
Charles Keeley FOLK (b. Nov. 24, 1886 Allegany Co., MD; d. July 5, 1973 Allegany Co., MD) married Celia Carol RAWLINGS(d/o Robert and Lillie). I have a modest amount of information on this branch of the family, should anyone be interested.
I am particularly interested in learning of some leads for both Jacob FOLCK (Folk?) and his parents. I have reason to believe that Jacob served, briefly, in the Civil War. Rebecca Folk's obituary suggests that he joined the war and was never heard from again. He may have been the deserter listed in Cole's Cavalry of MD or he may have served in a PA regiment. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
