*Pipe Creek Hundred - Now Carroll Co.

Eli Alban settled in the 5th district of Baltimore county just south of George's Run on Spooks Hill Road. A map of District 5 Baltimore County in 1855 verifies that location.

This land would appear to pass to a grandaughter Emma Jane Zouck, daughter of Barbara Ellen and JH Zouck who married Elijah Peregoy. The 1920 verifies Elijah Peregoy on Foreston Road and a map of 1915 shows a Peregoy at the Spooks Hill location.

Today that land lies under the waters of the Pretty Boy Reservoir.

In 1850 Eli also held land in the 7th District of Baltimore county in Parkton. His son Eli Samuel would later inherit this property. Most likely this land was another casualty of the reservoir.

Eli married Hannah or Johannah Shaffer who is probably a daughter or niece of a close neighbor Jacob Shaffer.

Eli would die in 1853 and his wife Hannah would continue with her sons in the farming trade.

She would still be there in 1880 with one of her sons Eli Samuel, his wife Lizzie and their first child Ida.

Several of Eli's descendants settled in the 6th district of Balto co just north of George's Run on a road we deduce to be named Parkton or Shamberger Mill.

Others would settle in the 5th District.

His son Zachariah lived on Foreston Road across from Forest Baptist Church between the forks of Pretty Boy Branch, 5th District.

Son Jehu S lived at the intersection of Gunpowder Falls and Poplar Run on Beckleysville Road, 6th District in 1877. His land would pass to his son William Ervin.

John O was living in Mt Carmel in 1878(Map reference below) on Foreston Road, 5th District. In 1920 census John and Martha list a Foreston road address and daughter Estella Benson, divorced is living with them.

A later map 1876-1915 shows John O on Foreston road across from Forest Baptist Church.(Forest Ridge Cemetery) The same map shows Hannah at the original location just below George's Run.

The 1877 map show an M Alban, possibly Melchior living on an unknown road above Georges Run, possibly Parkton or Shamberger Mill Rd (now under water), in the 6th district .

In 1870 George S was living in Manchester District, Carroll co. He was one of the first Albans to migrate to Nodaway Missouri.
