Thanks, but I posted that on Rootsweb! I have no parents for Matilda Hyde.

Where did you find that Wm. GREER married in St. James, Baltimore Co.? That was where William was born, but the marriage isn't in the St. James book that I have, 1787 - 1815, and the marriage is listed online in Prince George's County.
