In Response To: Shorter Family,MD ()
Did Richar'ds marriage or death record reveal anything about his parents? Have you discovered any records that can help pinpoint which area of Maryland the family may have come from, or do you only have the census state of birth information?
Have you been able to determine if the Young family was rooted in Prince George's County prior to Laura and Richard's marriage? James and Caroline Young lived in an area called Surratts, according to the 1880 census. Surratts was probably located in southern Prince George's county, and would not have been too far from Washington, DC. Do you know specifically where Richard and Laura married in 1872?
