Maryland Records Colonial Revolutionary County and Church

These two volumes published in 1915 contain a variety of colonial and revolutionary records of Marlyland.

Preface from volume II: There are some minds which delight in probing beneath the surface and in exploring neglected by-paths in search of hidden treasures.

In these two volumes of Maryland Records the author, G. M. Brumbaugh, has culled from a mass of material and original sources.

The contents of this work are remarkably interesting and valuable in every respect; particularly, from the genealogical view-point.
