      "Wills of Washington County, Maryland, An Index: 1776 - 1890" lists a will for Annie Allender submitted for probate in 1806.

      There is also an estate listed for William Allender dated 1822.

      The book "Distribution of Estate Accounts, Washington County, Maryland, 1778 - 1835" lists the distribution of the estate of Anna Allender. The administrator of the estate is William Allender. Heirs are Margaret Webb, Anna Webb, William Allender, Thomas Allender, Sarah Charlton, Euasilla Morgan, John D. Allender, Elizabeth Riley, and Mary Webb's children (Anna and Mary). The date of the distribution was 2/2/1811. The amount of the distribution was 10 pounds 3 shillings 1/2 cent.

      am i following the archives info correctly in that the will of Anne Allender probated 1806 is here:
      WASHINGTON COUNTY,REGISTER OF WILLS, Wills, MSA C1981
      Dates: 1803-1817
      Description: B
      Accession No.: 9148
