    3. Jim - It is a holistic thing. You need to dig up all the records of every sort - land, probate, tax, judicial, from all the areas where they lived to get the full picture. You may get lucky and find some old correspondence or newspapers that helps provide answers. They are all complementary and help I sorting out records when there are more than one person with the same given name. went through this with my polk/Pollock family research. Like yours they started in one place (Dames Quarter) but ended up in others (Princess Anne, Bridgeville, Cedar Creek) that involved multiple jurisdictions - Somerset, Dorchester, Sussex, sometimes changing without moving. Once you get back to the colonial period, as you seem to have done, it should get easier because the Maryland provincial records can fill in the holes that the Dorchester records don't. Who was you g-g-g-grandfather? How much do you know about him?

    2. I also am very sorry to hear of the death of John Lyon. I also met John at the Archives in Annapolis. I lived in Maine but had family in Maryland where I was born and raised. Whenever I visited my family in Maryland, I would spend virtually every day at the Archives researching my family history which was in Kent and Queen Anne's counties. Every time I went to the Archives, I encountered John there. We talked and had lunch together. We both were scientists and both of us became very interested in the research of our respective disciplines. I was fascinated with his computer mapping skills and his incredible ability to catalog and map all the land records of the Southern Shore. And he seemed fascinated to hear my stories of my research in molecular biology and molecular genetics. During our many lunches and other conversations, John told me a lot about his career at NASA but I did not know that his career was so important. It has been many years since I have been back to the Maryland Archives in Annapolis and those days with John. But I remember those days with fond memories. When I got this message today, I was very sad. But, when I asked my wife if she remembered me talking about John Lyon whom I always met at the Archives, she replied "Wasn't that the "map guy"?...Yes, how could I forget since you talked about him all the time back then". Yes, John Lyon was a remarkable person and his death is a huge loss to the people of the Eastern Shore and its history!

It has been many years since I have been back to the Maryland Archives in Annapolis and those days with John.  But I remember those days with fond memories.  When I got this message today, I was very sad.  But, when I asked my wife if she remembered me talking about John Lyon whom I always met at the Archives, she replied "Wasn't that the "map guy"?...Yes, how could I forget since you talked about him all the time back then". Yes, John Lyon was a remarkable person and his death is a huge loss to the people of the Eastern Shore and its history! Bruce Bruce L.

    3. John, This is indeed very sad news. I never had the pleasure of meeting John personally, but like many many many others, I have benefited greatly over the years from his selfless support and from all of his time spent on family research matters concerning the Lower Delmarva and all things family and genealogical. If you know his family, and if you haven't already, I hope you will pass on to them how much John did for all of us, and all he will continue to do for us through his example and his legacy. Thank you, John Lyon. (And thank you, John Polk, for letting us know of John's passing.)

    3. Thank you for this notice. John was helpful, thorough in his work, and generous with his time. He was my hero. I had some difficulty in my early days on this list with a lady who felt the need to always shoot me down. Sure enough, John would come rumbling out of his deep factual knowledge and either back me up, or compliment my novel thinking. He was a guardian when I needed it. He always took the time to steer you toward a solution, or dig deeply and find one for you. If he disagreed with something you stated, he always asked why and how you got there, and always privately. Chivalry and charm. I often teased…if I wasn’t a happily married woman….. He is a loss. Maryellen

Also, I live in California and I just returned from a trip to personally visit the Maryland State Archives. I want to say how thankful I am for one of the paid librarians there who was most helpful in working down through various reference documents, index cards and family records so that I did find and make copies of the documents that I was unable to get otherwise. We all need to understand and appreciate the help each of these generosity of the helpful people like John. I commend him for all the service he generously donated to all of us. I also appreciate those who serve and use this web site. It serves a good purpose for all of us who are searching for actual records of our ancestors.

    3. Thank you, those of you who replied. Since I have the microfilms of the tax rolls for all 3 counties 1770-ish to 1781, I can now see if I can find her guy on a DAR-acceptable tax list! As a side note -- this group has been a godsend in my tax list quest. I have worked for 4 years with the Genealogist at DAR who deals with the DE tax lists ( aka 'supply taxes') to find the appropriate wording from the Laws of DE and then on the individual tax rolls, that have now been approved as acceptable tax lists for Kent, Sussex, and New Castle. I have had a few years/counties approved. Kent is pretty much a supply-tax wasteland --- too many tories. I got started on it totally by accident and then couldn't let it go. My thanks for all the info from this group.

The Hundreds are not governmental entities but are hold overs from the colonial period. They now only really appear in real estate documents and as locators as divisions of the 3 counties.
