    2. Joan Brown
    3. I am hoping to find a descendant of Morris Ponfield. He was a witness for my grandfather's naturalization in June 1904 at the US Court in Baltimore, MD. I am hoping that someone will know if there is any relationship between the two, i.e., possibly brothers-in-law. Thank you. Joan in SoCal

    1. [MARYLAND-ROOTS] Abraham Taylor
    2. Ralph Taylor
    3. Please allow me to introduce myself as a newcomer to this list. My name is Ralph Taylor and I'm researching a TAYLOR family in 17th and 18th century Maryland. If any descendants of this family are on the list, I'd appreciate hearing from them, either on- or off-list. Who I'm looking for: A man named Abraham TAYLOR died in Baltimore County in 1719, at an estimated age of 59 (b.~1660?). His will was proved in court August 6, 1719; it listed his wife Jane, son John, son Abraham and daughter Lettice. He apparently took up residence in Gunpowder Hundred of Baltimore County (now Harford County) in 1694, when he bought at least part of tracts named Ayres Addition and Wansworth. One of the deeds describes him as "of Kent County". He is not on a Baltimore Co. tax list for 1694 (or 1692) but is on the 1695 list with two other taxables, Robert Taylor and Mark Swift. In 1695/96 he was one of six vestrymen for St. John's Parish (C of E), which included Gunpowder Hundred. His son Abraham (b.~1685) married Dinah (or Edinah) White in 1708 and moved to Craven County, North Carolina ~1730 with his extended family, including a grown son (Robert, b.1709) and several minor children. (This is the branch from which I descend.) His son John married Judith [--?--] and possibly Rachel the widow of James York. He may or may not have moved to North Carolina with his brother. Daughter Lettice (nickname for Leticia?) married (1) William Dodderidge and (2) Edward York. She appears to have remain in Maryland. Who I'm _NOT_ looking for: He was one of several men named Abraham TAYLOR in Maryland from 1690 to 1720. The others included: 1. The son (b.~1661) of Abraham TAYLOR of Puncoteague in Accomack Co., VA; he apparently moved to Maryland also. 2. The son (named Abraham Taylor) of Lawrence Taylor of Goodspeed Plantation in Spesutia Hundred (St. George's Parish). No relationship has been found between the Taylors of Gunpowder and those of Spesutia. 3. The man who applied for headrights for himself and a William Wattson in 1665; my guy was too young. (However, this man might possibly be my guy's father.) What I'm looking for: 1. Any indication of his whereabouts before 1694. Despite the deed's description, I have not found a record (so far) of him in Kent County, Maryland. His name is not on the Maryland 1678 or 1681 tax lists. 2. The date and place of his marriage to his wife whose maiden name is believed to be Jane COURKIN. 3. The dates and places of his children's births. 4. How he got to Maryland. Born there? Transported himself? Transported by another? Migrated from another colony? 5. Finally, the big payoff -- his origins. Who were his parents? Where was he born? Thank you for reading this far. I'd appreciate any help or suggestions. -rt_/)

    1. [MARYLAND-ROOTS] EDWARD KEHOE
    2. Michael O'Brien
    3. I am researching my great-grandfather EDWARD KEHOE. Edward used his step-father's last name FLYNN until after his service in the Union Navy during the Civil War. Early on the family lived on Cambridge Street. Edward worked on the water most of his life. Edward's wife was Margaret Stafford. Edward died January 28, 1914 and is buried in New Cathedral Cemetery. Margaret was buried in St. Vincent DePaul cemetery I would be interested in hearing from anyone researching KEHOES/CUSHINGS/FURLONGS. Mike

    3. I am researching a Captain John Ross and trying to establish if he had a connection to the Ross Family of Maryland. John b c1806 was a ships captain. (His father was reported to be also named John Ross.) He was Captain of a ship called the "Hashemy" from 1847 to 1858. This ship was owned by Ross, Corbett and Co. of Greenock, Scotland. The Ross partner was Thomas Bordley Ross b. 1795 son of Major David Ross and Henrietta Maria Bordley. Major David Ross was the son of Dr David Ross of Blandesburg, Maryland and Ariana Brice. Mariana Ross Thomas Bordley Ross's aunt married a Scottish business man Cunningham Corbett which I presume lead to the Corbett connection in the business. I know Thomas Bordley Ross had an older brother John but no mention is made of him apart from his birth in any of the records I have found.

    1. [MARYLAND-ROOTS] Haviland surname
    2. Hello, I am looking for any individuals from the 1700's and 1800's with the Haviland surname. I believe members of the family lived for a time on any side of the NY/NJ/PA/MD state lines during this time period, before moving on to Maryland, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin. Please note that the name had many spellings during that time period of national transition. We have seen it spelled Heaviland, Havlin, Hevlin, Hevilin, Heavilin, Haverland, Heavirland, and other spellings. First names may include Stephen, Samuel, Jacob, William, Sylvester, Sylvanus, David, and others. This area and time period seem to be our black hole. I am doing research for several branches of the family, so by helping me with this, you will be helping a lot of other people as well. thank you on behalf of all the Haviland descendants who have been up against a brick wall!

    1. [MARYLAND-ROOTS] Anna Matilda BALES/BALIS born c1827 VA or DE married William RICHARDSON (born DE c1833) in Philadelphia, PA
    2. Ella Coleman-Artz
    3. Hello everyone My 3rd great grandmother was Anna Matilda BALES/BALIS. Sometimes she went by Ann/Annie and other times she went by Mattie/Matilda. She was born about 1827 in either Virginia or Delaware. Her father was born in either Scotland or Delaware and her mother was born in ether Delaware or Maryland. I'm sorry if I seem confused but that's because I am. This information was gathered from census images, marriage records and a death certificate. After reading about the history of Delaware and Maryland, I find that these colonies were started by a good amount of those who lived in the bordering states so I can see the confusion. I can especially see the confusion with those who lived at the border as the border changed over time. Anyway, Matilda first married George LITTLE in Kent County, near Smyrna on November 21, 1843. They were both about 16 years old. The marriage bond was signed by George LITTLE and Jesse? GREEN. George LITTLE supposedly passed away 18 months after they were married and Matilda went to either live with her mother on a farm in the country or moved to Wilmington. By 1849, she was living as a servant in the household of an uncle of Joseph and William RICHARDSON. She talked William into hopping a train to Philadelphia where they were married on November 22, 1849. William was my 3rd great grandfather. William and Matilda had 2 children born in Philadelphia. William T Richardson who died in 1881 and Josephine who was born about 1852. Josephine married Thomas JORDAN and these were my 2nd great grandparents. William died in 1887 and Matilda died in 1907. They both died in Philadelphia, PA. Matilda's age is way off on her death certificate so I'm pretty sure that there is no guarantee that her parents place of birth is correct..Scotland for dad and MD for mom. It seems that Delaware is a more than likely place of birth for him. If anyone has a connection or information to share I would love to hear from you. Ella

    1. [MARYLAND-ROOTS] Looking for help finding "Dublin Somerset County, Maryland"
    2. S Penner
    3. This is as far back as I can go with this line of my Kennedy. John Kennedy, I believe is probably the one who came here from Ireland. I would love to find out all I can about him and any root to Ireland. My brother is 73 and is so into being Irish that I would love to fine out definite information about our family for him. He belongs to the Irish society and he would like to be able to tell them more about where his Irish ancestors come from. If anyone can help me with the below information that I got from another genealogists work I would certainly appreciate the information. (The other genealogist died several years ago so I can't get and further information from him. All help is greatly appreciated, Sandra Kennedy Penner Somerset County is at the south end of the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay. It was erected in 1666 as one of Maryland's original counties. Around 1744 John Kennedy moved most of his family across the bay to what is now Montgomery County. Hugh Kennedy, his youngest son remained and brought up his family in Stepney Parich. In 1745 John patented an irregualr 200 acre lot in the middle of Montgomery County, about 20 miles north of present downtown Washington. John called this property "Dublin" and from this we assume that he was from Ireland. We have a copy of his 1751 will leaving this property to his first four sons, 50 acres each. In 1753 he added 781 adjoining acres and the legal name for the estate was changed to "Dublin Resurveyed". In Ontario we are accustomed to having land surveyed into 200 acre rectangular lots before grants are made. The irregular "Dublin Resurveyed" must have been a surveyor's nightmare with a perimeter having 80 changes in direction. His wife Elizabeth was alive in 1778. After John died in 1753 Elizabeth married a Mr. Daws. John and Elizabeth had 8 sons, no daughters.

    3. Hello listers, I am seeking contacts with descendants of my late great uncle named above so that I may add to our Family History. I understand that he may have lived in Dale Drive Silver Spring as late as 1958. Unfortunately our local contacts have since died leaving no contact information for the family.If at all possible we would like to re-unite with our American Relatives. Arthur may have had a daughter who we think was named Maureen and a son named Wilfred who has since passed on and he was also a Doctor. If anyone can help with contact information it would be very much appreciated.
