- Marriages and Deaths from the Maryland Gazette, 1727-1839
by Robert W Barnes
Published between 1727 and 1839 "The Maryland Gazette" often included
references to marriages and deaths of everyday Maryland citizens. Here
the marriages and deaths of approximately 3,000 Maryland residents are
abstracted. The abstracts are quite informative since they provide you
with information not only on the bride and groom but on ministers, relatives,
and associates as well.
- Marriages and Deaths from Baltimore Newspapers, 1796-1816
by Robert W Barnes
Seventeen Baltimore newspapers were researched in the compilation of
this comprehensive book. At least 5,000 individuals are referenced within
the 7,500 abstracts collected here. Within the abstracts you'll learn
not only dates and details of vital events but names and notes on event
participants (for example, relatives, ministers, and associates).
Each entry is keyed to a specific source - the key to the code is
found at the beginning of the book. This collection of records is
especially valuable because it is unlikely that the newspapers consulted
for this work can be found in a single repository outside of Maryland.

in which he served, and the name of the pension applicant (the widow,
for example). Part II, "Maryland Federal Bounty Land Grants," gives

was issued, and the warrant number. Part III is a list of Maryland soldiers
who did not receive pensions but whose service has been established
through records. Part IV consists of a list of marriages proved through

Revolutionary service was in states other than Maryland.
