What happened to GGGG Grandmother Marie?

Marie Neuhauser was born about 1772-3 in Gosselming, Moselle, France. About 1800 she married Joseph Schrag (sometimes Gerrard)--both were still alive in 1826. Joseph died in 1830 and the next year his family sailed to America. Marie could have traveled with them, as there is a Mary Gerrard, 52, listed along with Madeline Gerrard, 19, (no doubt daughter Magdalena who married Christian Smith) on the ship Baltimore. Her age fits fairly well with her probable birth date. However, except for a notation by her son Peter in his Bible saying his mother died 27 January 1839, there seems to be no other data found about when or where she died, and no other mention of her by any family members in America--nor have researchers found evidence of her presence in America. So far, nothing found in France/Germany either. The family spent at least a year in Pennsylvania before arriving in Butler County, Ohio in about 1832. So we assume her death took place in Ohio if she did in fact come to America. Please contact me if anyone has information about Marie in America.

John Mills

Quaker, born about 1689/90 in England, died 24 Nov 1760 in Guilford Co., NC. Probably came to America about 1708 with Richard Harrold and worked in Philadelphia in the construction business for several years before moving to Maryland. He was described as John Mills of "Manoquisy near ye River Potomack" in 1730. Does anyone know his ancestry?
