  • Description

    Cornelius Ward Savage and Mary A. “Polly” Friend of Sang Run, MD
    Patrick T. Smith

    Cornelius Ward Savage was the son of Sarah (Sally) Mary Friend and Robinson T. Savage (Jr.). He was born in Sang Run, MD in 1824 and lived there until passing away in 1893. He was named after his maternal great grandfather Cornelius Ward, a Revolutionary War Veteran. Cornelius was the grandson of John Friend Jr. (1764 to 1849) and Elizabeth Ward (1778 to 1845), as well as the great grandson of John Friend Sr. (1728 to Aft 1808), the patriarch of the Allegany/ Garrett County MD Friend Family. Cornelius married Mary A. “Polly” Friend, who was the daughter of John Simpson Friend, granddaughter of Gabriel Friend and great granddaughter of John Friend Sr. Cornelius and Mary had at least nineteen children. Some of these children and their descendants would live on in Western MD while others would travel, making new homes throughout the United States and beyond. This book is a compilation of the far-reaching stories of this family. This book attempts to re-build the lives of Cornelius Ward Savage, his wife and their descendants in part through US Census records, land deeds, wills, photographs, personal histories, obituaries, newspaper articles, military records as well as birth, marriage and death records. This book is dedicated to the their memory in the hopes of preserving a very small portion of their lives.
