Rose G. Hay (1919-2009), a Democrat, was initially appointed by Governor Marvin Mandel to fill a vacancy as judge on the Allegany County Orphan’s Court. She would later run for this position and in 1978 became the first woman elected to the Orphan’s Court. Re-elected in 1982 she would serve as Chief Judge until her retirement in 1986. Delores F. Ortiz served as her Treasurer. Rose identified herself with “Honesty and Integrity” and always asked that you “Remember me to your friends.”

George H. Tederick, a Republican, also served several terms during the 1970s and 1980s as a Judge of the Orphan’s Court. His wooden nickels, as displayed here, were very popular. Tederick ran several times for a seat on the Cumberland City Council between the years 1948 and 1966. He was successful once, serving from 1950-1952.

Cecil Warnick, Kenneth K. Lowe, and Charles Johnson, all Republicans, were at one time or another candidates for Judge of the Orphans Court, as was Ervin D. Lewis.
