Helen J. Duskin wrote the following regarding her research on Dennis Duskin:
"I have been trying to locate where Dennis Duskin came from - the first one on the left of the chart. Everything on the chart I have proven and the modern generations need much more detail and work and that is what I want you to help me complete. But in the Baltimore Maryland Land Records of January 6, 1717 I found the following: folio 5.23 - Mary Fraser, widow of John Fraser bound two of her children by her former husband Dennis Duskin, Michael and Daniel, as apprentices to John Barrett and wife Alice; said Michael aged 8 on Oct 27 before the binding, and said Daniel aged 6 on April 7 after the binding. Mary signed her mark. Witnesses: Luke Raven and Peter Bond. S/S ...what we have here is that Dennis had died, Mary had married again and I know of at least one boy she had by Fraser - but she was probably dying and there were other members of the Fraser family who would take those boys to raise - but no Duskins. So to insure a proper upbringing, she apprenticed these two boys to a fine couple who would bring them up in the Christian religion, probably tobacco farmers, and the papers even state that at age 21 when they were free to leave, they had to have a full suit of clothes and two pairs of socks!
Dennis Duskin had to have been an English citizen who paid his own way over-he does not appear in the immigration records, convict records or indentured servants records. He appears on the List of Taxables in Baltimore County in 1702, 1704, and 1706."
I am also researching the Meyer, Preston, Trogdon, and Carstens families.
