Shore Blogging

Since I have a great time digging for history around the shore, I’ve set up a number of blogs that allow me to share some of the material I’m working on around the Peninsula.  This page will help readers navigate around the history related blogs I’ve set up.  Also below a listing of my blogs, you will find research links that I have found interesting and helpful.

  1. I am researching my mother’s family. They lived in Cecil County in Elkton. My mother’s cousin married Edgar Startt. I have an old photo of him as sherrif of Elkton in 1956. Can anyone give me more info on him? Thank you.

  2. I know Edgar Startt’s nephew, Al Startt who lives in Elkton. His health isn’t good now but his daughter, Adelaide will help you with information. Hope this will help, Carol Hash

  3. Thanks Carol. I’ll give him a call.
