hello my friends
I have found this book to be absolutely wonderful, however in the beginning I said where's the alphabet? Putting that aside since I am a Carter I would enjoy reading more
about them wouldant I. Anyhow I took a liking to page 440, about the good Doctor of Baltimore, who for some years now I have tried to tie into my family.
Furthermore, page 481 reads almost like my very own genealogical record, with Richard Lord Snowden and the Thomas line. Richard Snowden Junior, was married on the ships crossing from Wales, to Mary Linthicum who was in fact the ship Captains daughter. Captain Thomas Linthicum made this his final voyage and founded the town of Linthicum, Maryland. In the Snowden Book of Genealogy it clearly says Richard Snowden 3rd married Elizabeth Thomas, who's line of descendants include William the Conquerer and Charlemaign, and King John the signer of the Magna Carta to name a few . So here you have Hester Hill (2d) Mary Linthicum, and Elizabeth Thomas.
