The Sines, Friend, and Foote Families and others

Updated September 5, 2000

I am researching the Henry Sines Family and its descendants and ancestors. Henry was thought to be born about 1784 in Culpepper Co., VA. Henry served in the war of 1812 and later lived in Preston Co., VA before moving to Allegany Co., MD in an area that is now a part of Garrett Co., MD. Henry's father is thought to be John, the son of Benjamin Synor. Benjamin and John fought together in the Revolutionary War.
The Friend family goes back to the 1600's, when they first came to this country and settled in the Delaware Co., PA area.

The Foote/Foot family that I am researching came to America in 1857 from England. George E. Foote, Sr, born in January of 1829 in England. George and his wife, Elizabeth, and one child Felix came to Allegany Co., MD in 1857.

Other family names I am researching are: Shaffer (from VA, WV, or PA), Field (from VA, or WV), VanMeter (VA, WV, MD), Iser (MD, WV, ?), Wolfe (VA, WV), Ketterman (VA, WV), Dawson (MD), Dayton, (WV, VA, MD)

Someday, I hope to tackle the following: Wilson, (MD, ?) and Morgan (MD, ?)

There are many other surnames listed in my family tree, most are from the Allegany, and Garrett Counties of Maryland and Preston or Monongalia Counties in West Virginia.

If you would like to correspond, have any information you would like to share, or have questions that I may be able to answer about my family tree please email me at

Happy Researching!
