In Response To: Re: Maria Adams, FPOC MD ()
I am interested in Maria Adams from information sent by a cousin. Maria Adams is in a Maryland census with a son of the same name and age as my great grandfather's brother.
I keep a separate datbase of persons (slaves) whose names are the same or similar to my ancestors and of whom I have not found a connection. Experience has taught me to hang on to information. While I did not find anything on the Adams you named, I did find something I wrote concerning a Henry Delany. The Henry Delany I have is a slaveholder listed in the 1800 Census.
1800 U. S. Federal Census, Braod Creek, Somerset, Maryland;
Free White Females
All Other Free Persons - 0
Slaves - 4
He apparently is listed with 4 slaves. There is no age nor sex breakdown on the slaves.
Broad Creek is listed in later years as part of Prince George's County, Maryland. This might possibly be the beginning of your Henry Delany name.
