    1. [MDCAROLI] Status of the Caroline county mailing list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of now, the Caroline county mailing list has 73 subscribers. In light of this list closing on March 2nd, with the full knowledge of the list owner - Susan Penn Groover, I have set up a new home for this list. I've recently set up similar homes for other Rootsweb lists that will be going defunct next month. In my next email, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [MDCAROLI] Leave a Farewell Message
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Leave a Farewell Message*_/ This post was by Judith to MODAVIES: suggestion: People may want to post a "farewell" message on the mailing list before it goes to archive, and in this message include an email you plan to keep for the foreseeable future. A separate email could be set up expressly for this purpose if it is more convenient/secure. (You'll want web-based, not provider-based.) That way, if someone peruses the archive & finds a possible connection, they would have a way to get in touch with you privately. I have been on a couple of lists that went archival at some point, and I really wish I had done that, as our old email was provider-based and - once that provider went defunct, people looking through the defunct mailing list had no way to contact me (nor I them) It's easier to track people down these days, but I'd still suggest this. I think this to be an excellent idea, wish I thought it. I would like to expand to suggest that a post to include Your name, best address to reach you (one that might be dedicated to your genealogy research), a list surname(s) of interest, a list to places of interest (country, region, state, county), subject of interest, snail mail address (at your own risk), telephone number (again at your own risk), web address if you have a website, where you “moved.” Please keep in mind these to be suggestions and you should only provide what you would be comfortable for “ibots” to find. Might not want to wait to last minute. This would give system to process information and have it posted. With this in mind, please do not be concerned when you see my post to the nearly 300 (took inventory; final count was 298 – just sharing) mailing lists I admin. I will be leaving my time capsule to the list(s) in the coming days. But I will be here til Roots Web turn off the lights and lock the door. Let me take a few lines to acknowledge all the “thank-you” I have received. I started with a few surnames and expanded to counties more recently. But you are all “welcomed.” I try serve with the volunteer spirit and a happy heart. Please overlook my frustration that may boil to the top in the coming days. Susan

    1. [MDCAROLI] Ramblings from the Backseat
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Ramblings from the Backseat*_/ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. I have already announced that as of March 2^nd , when Roots Web ceases to function as a mailing list that I will be hanging up my administrator's hat. These are my observations and suggestions going forward. First and foremost, someone needs to step-up to be new administrator, chairman, leader, whatever title you like. Next a decision should be made whether to remain a mailing list or a bulletin board. Of course, what is to say both could be established. I personally have not read, but Dick Eastman has endorsed Group.io as a venue for mailing list. From what little time I have had, I would lean toward Group.io to maintain mailing list format. I have no experience with bulletin boards therefore I have no input. I am hearing Facebook, but I have issues with privacy and whether someone would make the site secure enough. I am sure there are other venues for bulletin board format. Can not stop someone setting up FB account, just do not bother to invite me. Also, Ancestry has an established bulletin board area, it is functioning. Due to the activity on most state lists, my next suggestion would be that county mailing lists consolidate to form one state list. When activity is established divide into regions. Too much activity then establish a county list (start at the top and drill down). Under the blanket of a state list posting could use subject line to keep the identity of the county ie; SUBJECT: [AL-SUMTER] Looking for … Surname lists are a horse of a different color. Suggestion here would be to make use of subject line. Kinda like reading a newspaper, the subject line is like a headline of a newspaper. Personally I pay attention to an informative subject line. A worry in the back of my mind is with the “mass exodus” from Roots Web to other venue on whether that venue can handle the new activity or whether “we” will cause that venue to crash and burn. Here's hoping that is a needless concern. Once the list is established … there needs to be centralized place where a directory or a place of registration that searching community would go to find the list. Since I am US based, USGenWeb comes to mind. This maybe more difficult step. USGenWeb sites are individually maintained. Hearing rumblings that this may be solved in the near future. Last concern (for the moment) would be “being nice and playing well with others.” Personally, have not experienced this problem. Frustration, maybe. Especially when Roots Web fell apart and returned “fixed” with continuing problems. For example, I still have to push through a post from someone using AOL. AOL users … this is why your post takes a little longer to be seen. Sorry, I do my best with the tools I have to work with. Patience is probably going to be the keyword in days to come. Patience with the leaders that will step forward. They are going to be putting a lot on their plates and will need support in establishing a new venue and getting it working, establishing their rules, etc. Congratulation to those lists that have found a “new home.” From what I see you are in good hands! Will try to make this last posting to those newly adopted lists. (Posting to all lists today.) At this point in time, Family Trees, Message Boards, Web Sites, & Wiki at Roots Web are not effected to my knowledge. Of course, Message Boards are already part of Ancestry. So open conversation. Work on finding a volunteer to lead the list forward. I'm gonna stop rambling for the moment. I'm here till they turn off the lights and lock the door. Susan

    1. [MDCAROLI] Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future.

    3. Mulane37, At the Clayton Library in Houston today I found a multivolume set of abstracted records of the Third Haven Monthly Meeting in Talbot County, Maryland. Glancing at the indexes I found Lydia Wilson several times, but no Jonathan. Possibly he used a shortened "Jon." or even "John". As you might image there were a number of those. I did not find similar records of the Tuckahoe MM in Dorchester/Caroline County.  The good news is that the Third Haven volumes have been digitized and are available free online for viewing, downloading and printing from the LDS Family History Book collection. Google “LDSFamily History Book” to get to the site or copy and the paste the following:   https://books.familysearch.org/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=FHD_PUBLIC   Once on the site, type Maryland Quaker (Friends) Recordsof Third Haven in the search box and all of the various volumes will comeup in a list. Good Hunting! Also I found a will record for Jonathan Wilson, Sr and a marriage license record for Jonathan Wilson, Jr, and for the remarriage of Lydia, all in Caroline County, in a book by Debbie Hooper "Caroline County, Maryland Marriage References 1774-1850" I'll post a summary, Gary WillisRed Marker 18http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RedMarkerswww.redmarkerfacs.com On Saturday, March 7, 2015 11:15 AM, "gc-gateway@rootsweb.com" <gc-gateway@rootsweb.com> wrote: This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list.

My ancestors were married sometime in 1898 Thomas Coster Rylott & Mary Estella Smith in Ridgely, Caroline, Maryland--where do I send for copies? I went to the website and it said the Circuit Court of the county so I went to that website and I couldn't find information there.

He died in 1807 and Henrietta later rented the farm and lived in Talbot County. She died in 1846 and was buried with William near the Frazier mansion. [I seem to recall she was in Baltimore for awhile but I could be remembering incorrectly. PP] Their gravestones are still visible. The mansion and about 700 acres were acquired in 1859 by Henrietta Maria's grand-niece, Henrietta Maria Frazier Dimmock Smith, granddaughter of her brother, Henry, and wife of William Henry Smith of Alleghany County, Maryland. The remainder of the land was acquired by the heirs of William Frazier's brother, Charles. Henry Smith was born in 1818 in Howard County, Maryland, and was an engineer with the B & 0 Railroad for a number of years. The Smiths lived in the Frazier mansion and Henry was a farmer. About 1860 he built the Dover Bridge across the Choptank River. The Smiths had three children: Henry Dimrnock, Henrietta, and Mary, all born in Virginia. Mary died young. According to his obituary, Henry was unable to keep the farm going after the Civil War when they lost their slaves, and were living in Easton by 1870. In February 1897 Capt. Henry Smith fell dead on a street in Easton. His funeral was held in the Easton Episcopal church and he was buried in the Spring Hill Cemetery The Smiths" daughter, Henrietta, married Reuben Tharp and lived in New Jersey."- Dora Mitchell, History of Preston, Maryland Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
