I didn’t think I had any connections to Maryland, but a quick search of events in my database proved me wrong. I do have some of my own connections, some very distant cousins that I know very little about.
And then I saw a name I didn’t recognize at all: Johann Diel Bohn. Who is the world is that? Turns out, it’s on my husband’s side, and perhaps Johann is hubby’s eighth great-grandfather. I say “perhaps” because this line was pretty much “borrowed” from a tree on Ancestry and I have not done any research on this family beyond hubby’s second great-grandmother, Eliza Ann Matilda Boone and her probable father Martin Alexander Boone.
