FF19 CRAZY CRATE FF19: Let's get GOING BEFORE WE ALL DROWN IN A SNOWDRIFT! I can't even get out my back door yet! This crazy crate is full full of books from Maryland.
People can always use a book as a present. You don't have to feed, walk, water or pet it. It doesn't spoil if you don't use it right away. It doesn't wilt if you don't water it, it doesn't take up much space, and genealogists don't care if someone read it before they got it! Books don't care if their new owners don't read them until summer vacation. They don't get their feelings hurt unless you let your dog chew on them. They REALLY don't like that!
Check these out to see if any one or more of your ancestors might lurk inside one of these. You can never own too many books or too many ancestors!
MARYLAND - FF19 CRAZY CRATE FF19: BOOK 1: B147: OLD BUCKINGHAM BY THE SEA ON THE EASTERN SHORE OF MARYLAND. By L. Marshall Page. 252 pages, 5½" by 8", hardbound. Author of "The Children of the Highest" and "The Little Soul Winner." Published in Philadelphia by the Westminster Press in 1936. This book looks brand new and it is only one year older than I am! The beautiful church pictured just inside the book is Buckingham Presbyterian Church in Berlin, Maryland. It holds a congregation whose roots date back to 1683. It is the oldest church in Worchester County, Maryland, north of Snow Hill.
From a review: "Throwing a new light on the founding of the Presbyterian Church in the United States, Mr. Page has made a real contribution in the field of Early American Presbyterianism. His painstaking research has been rewarded by new and important discoveries relating to the labors of Francis Makemie. It is a work that is not only authentic history, but reads like a romance."
Fortunately, the book has hundreds of names in it, but, unfortunately, there is no index at all. Thank Heavens, there is an admirable Table of Contents, which helps somewhat because there are twenty-five chapters with some helpful titles: Chapter I.) The Land and the People of the Eastern Shore. Jutting down into the blue waters of the Atlantic extends a most wonderful section of land forming a fertile peninsula. The peninsula is bounded on the north by the State of Pennsylvania, on the east by the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, on the South by the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay, and on the west by the Chesapeake Bay. This section of country lies in three states, Virginia and Maryland and includes all the State of Delaware. In this area lie all three counties of Delaware, which were Hoarekill, New Amstel and Upland at that time. Then Maryland has nine counties there: including three of them we have talked about before, because originally all three of them were known as Somerset County, Maryland, which was created in 1666 with Princess Anne as the county seat. In the year 1742 Worcester County was created out of the seaside end of Somerset, and Snow Hill was named the county seat. It was in Worcester County that the most famous race horse of all time, Man-O-War, was reared and trained. And in 1936, it was the home of the world's largest nursery - Harrison Nurseries of Berlin, Maryland. It wasn't until 1867 the county called Wicomico was created and Salisbury was made the county seat. Virginia has two counties in this area. They are Accomack and NorthamptonCounties.
The name Del-Mar-Va is also used to describe this area. The fortune of Mrs. Nellie Custis Washington came to her from an older Custis who lived on the Eastern Shore. He was the only holder in America of large stocks in the Bank of England and through him was laid the foundation of banking in America, [Pat's note: Wonder what he would think about what is going on in banking now!] his fortune laying a goodly part of the foundation of our banking system. [Pat's conclusion: He is probably twirling in his grave at what has happened lately!] Chapter II.) Colonial Eastern Shore. III.) The Coming of Rev. Francis Makemie. IV.) Captain William Fassitt, Our First Known Elder. V.) Buckingham Under Other Pastors. VI.) The Church Gets a Minister From England. VII.) Buckingham Church Moves to Burley Plantation. VIII.) The Coming of the Tennants and Opening of a School. IX.) Rev. John Rankin, the Man Who Won His Way. X.) In the Days of Heroic Elders. XI.) Buckingham's Most Beloved Pastor. XII.) One of Buckingham's Greatest Pastors. XIII.) The Church Passes Through a Trying Period. XIV.) The Man Who Found Francis Makemie's Grave. XV.) From the Path of Duty to the Throne Room of a King. XVI.) The Boy Preacher and the First Manse in Berlin. XVII.) A Popular Pastor and Starting of a New Church. XVIII.) A Death and a Marriage. XIX.) Worthy Sons of a Worthy Father. XX.) The Pastor Who Named His Son for the Church. XXI.) A Disastrous Fire. XXII.) Rev. Thomas E. Kerr, An Ideal Shepherd. XXIII.) The Shepherd That Remained. XXIV.) Buckingham as It Is Today . and XXV.) Story of the Makemie Churches by Their Pastors. If every history read like this one, all of our people would have Doctorate Decrees in History! Full of tidbits, light hearted moments, good will overflowing everywhere, this book is indeed a joy to read! Price: $35
FF19 CRAZY CRATE FF19: MAPS 4: D117. MAP GUIDE TO THE U. S. FEDERAL CENSUS. MARYLAND, DELAWARE, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. 1790-1820. By William Thorndale and William Dollarhide. Published and Distributed by the American Genealogical Lending Library, now out of business, which used to be located in Bountiful, Utah. There is a state map for each census year. Existing county's boundary lines are shown as of that census year with black lines. Under that is a state map of today showing county divisions as they are now. Early counties may be much larger, because there were fewer of them, than today's county boundaries, and that must be kept in mind when considering both census records and land records. There are twelve pages of maps and information in this booklet which is not stapled. Price: $5
FF19 CRAZY CRATE FF19: BOOK 5: B111. GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN MARYLAND. A GUIDE. By Mary Keysor Meyer, Assistant Librarian and Genealogist, 1983, The Maryland Historical Society, Third Edition. 45 pages, cardstock covers, stapled. No better guide to a state's records may be had than one that is written by a librarian who works daily with the records. I became acquainted with Mrs. Meyer through several trips to the library, located in one of my ancestor's states [Maryland] while at conferences where we displayed our books and materials. We found our ancestors probably knew each other, or at least knew of each other, as they shared an ancestral country and both lived in the Monocacy area of Frederick County, Maryland, in about the same years. [I bought her book and used it often to find out about my elusive ancestor who bought property and named it John's Mountain! He was of little help to me! I could have found Van Treese's Mountain, which was an area of land, and not even a mountain at all, much easier!] This book is still valuable, and I won't part with mine, but this is somebody else's, and I am willing to share my good luck with someone else. She has a county-by-county list of books that were written about each county that is tremendously helpful. Thanks to her book, I found all but one of the books she listed on that last trip we made to Maryland, because I knew, thanks to her, that they had been written. Price: $7
FF19 CRAZY CRATE FF19: BOOK 9: B121. SKETCHES OF MARYLAND EASTERN SHOREMEN. Genealogical extracted abstracts from "PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF THE EASTERN SHORE OF MARYLAND. The original contained portraits of citizens of the past and present, together with portraits and biographies of the Presidents of the United States, published by Chapman Publishing Company in 1898. This copy of the biographies plus the Index was done in 1985. Information was originally gathered by a corps of writers who interviewed the subjects of the biographies. 287 pages, taped binding, of which 229 are full of the biographies in numbered paragraphs (numbers refer to page number in original book) and the rest is index. Although the index will not give you much trouble when using the book to find a few pages, it leaves no spaces between surnames, thereby giving a headache to anyone reading the entire fifty-seven pages. Take my word for it, if your family lived there in The Eastern Shore for very long, his name is probably in here. The following surnames appear in the index with 5 or more entries: Acworth, Adams*, Adkins*, Adreon, Ahern, Alexander, Anderson*, Andrews*,Anthony*, Applegarth, Archer, Armstrong, Atkinson*, Atwell, Auld*, Bacon*, Bailey*, Baker*, Balch*, Baldwin, Banning*, Barber, Barclay, Barkely, Barnes*, Barney*, Barroll*, Bartlett*, Barton, Bateman*, Beatty*, Beauchsmp*, Beaven*, Beck, Bell*, Bennett*, Benson*, Benton*, Bernard, Berry*, Bibby, Birkhead, Bishop*, Blades*, Blake, Boehm, Booker, Bordley*, Bounds, Bowen, Bowie, Bradley*, Braly, Bramble*, Brattan*, Brewington, Brice, Bright*, Brook/e, Broughton, Brown*, Bryan**, Burchinal, Burneston, Busteed*, Byrd, Campbell, Cannon, Carman, Carmine, Carroll**, Carson*, Casho, Cator, Caulk*, Causey, Cecil, Chamberlain, Chamberlaine*, Chambers, Chaplain, Charles, Chipley*, Clark*, Clash*, Clayville, Clements*, Clough, Cluff*, Cochrane, Cockey, Cockran, Coleman, Collier, Collins*, Collison, Colston, Comegys, Connaway*, Connor, Constable*, Cooke*, Cooper** , Copage*, Copper*, Corkran*, Cornwell, Costen, Cottingham, Coulbo(u)rn/e*, Covey, Covington*, Cox*, Crane, Crawford*, Crisfield, Crocheron, Crockett, Croswell, Crowding, Cullin, Cummings, I am skipping to the middle of the alphabet now. Surname must have five entries to be listed. An asterisk indicates more than enough to fill five full half page lines on two-column pages. ** means 10 lines *** means close to or over a column.

I had much more than this ready to go into the Newsletter, but my connection with Constant Contact was so frustrating I just gave up at 12:30 a.m. I actually put this crate in three times, before I could get it to stay in. I will call the newsletter people tomorrow and see if they can tell me what went wrong. Huge chunks of the newsletter would just disappear, and I could not bring it back. So maybe next Tuesday's will be longer. Thanks for reading this one! Pat from YOGS
