BLAIR, COL. THOMAS continued

last will and testament.
In witness whereof I have hereto set my hand and affixed by seal this 12th day of November in the year one thousand eight hundred and fifty six. [signed] Thos. Blair.” (supplied by Betty McCollom, 1994)

Col. Blair is mentioned in Scharf (v. I, p. 186). As a Captain, he formed a company of soldiers from Cumberland in 1814: “The company formed in Cumberland was made up of excellent material. By frequent drills it attained a state of enviable discipline and proficiency. It marched to Baltimore in the latter part of August, and was in the service of the government as part of the national army from Sept. 2 to Nov. 6, 1814, which time was spent at Camp Diehl near Baltimore.”

Col. Blair served as Postmaster of Frostburg from May 1, 1841 to July 9, 1845 (Frostburg Salutes..., p. 25)

“Died. At her home, this place, Saturday, October 10, 1896, Mrs. Eliza Bowen, relict of the late William Bowen, aged 77 [sic] years. Mrs. Bowen was born in Gloucestershire, England. In 1846 she settled in Frostburg and had ever since lived here. She reared 14 children, 10 of whom, all grown—5 daughters and 5 sons, survive. All except a daughter and a son were present at the funeral, which took place Monday at the M.E. Church. Domestic in her tastes, thoroughly devoted to her home and family, and blessed by a strong religious predisposition, she was a wife and mother of unfailing fidelity and piety. Not only so, but her neighbors testify to numberless acts of christian kindness bestowed beyond the borders of her home.” [FMJ 10-17-1896, p. 3]
