Please help! I am trying to find any information on my great great grandfather Martin Jacob Eckart. The last name could have been spelled Eckhart or with an E instead of an A. He was married to Elizabeth Jane Pollitt May, 1861 in Lewis County Kentucky. They had several children. My great great grandfather came to the U.S. as a stow away on a boat so there are no legal immigration papers. He did bring a family bible with him which has not been able to be located. I have been told that he was an attorney in Kentucky. I have been unable to verify this fact. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for information of a Mollie Lowe or Mattie Wilson (married name). I feel this is the same person. She was married to Harry Skinner Wilson in Baltimore. Harry Skinner Wilson was born in 1862 and died March 14 1932. They had 3 children which I understand were all adopted out - Bessie Jane Wilson (my grandmother), Samel E Holland, and Myrtle Bowden. Mollie/Mattie is the mystery. I cannot find anything about her in all the records I have checked. If you have any information about any of these persons, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
