P 188 of Burnbaugh's The Brethren in Colonial America relates Morgan
Edwards descriptions of the several Maryland congregations in 1770
(Connecocheague, Monocacy, Middle Creek, Antitam and Piper Creek). There
is just a brief paragraph about each congregation describing its location
in relation to Annapolis and Philadelphia, the number of families and
baptized members (but no lists), the ministers and beginning date of each
Connecocheague - "in Frederick Count, 54 mi NW from Anapolis, and 120 SW
from Philadelphia....about forty [families] whereof 130
baptized....minister is Rev. Nicholas Martin, who has to his assistants
Mess[rs]. John Titer and Stephan Waller. They had their beginnings as a
society in 1743"
Note, this Connecocheague is different from the Antitam congregation
which is described as "in Frederick County, 120 miles NW from Anapolis
and 130 SW from Philadelphia. The families about forty, whereof
ninety-one persons are baptized. The minister, Rev. William Stober.
They originated in 1750"
Hope this helps.
