Researching Drusilla Townsend who married Edward Townsend abt. 1838. She was born abt. 1820 in MD. Her obit in The Sun archives says she is the daughter of Mary and Col. John H. Shutch, he of Revolutionary fame and the War of 1812. Obit also mentions that Drusilla was from "Carroll's Island which has been in the possession of her family for more than 100 years." I believe Carroll's Island was located in Baltimore Co. The censuses for Drusilla that I have found thus far show her living in Baltimore. The 1900 census in Baltimore shows Drusilla, widowed, living with her married daughter. It is noted in that census that Drusilla's parents were both born in Prussia. I have searched various sites including Fold3, familysearch.org, DAR and ancestry.com for the Shutchs with no luck. I suspect that name was spelled incorrectly in the obit. If anyone has any inform. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
