Thanks for your reply to my posting some time ago to Genealogy.com about John Baggs of Queen Anne's County, Maryland.
The John Baggs for whom I am searching died in Queen Anne's County, Maryland, in 1827.He died intestate.However, court records show that his properties were divided between his two daughters, Ann Baggs, married to Philemon Blake Hopper, and a minor Sarah Louisa Baggs.Sarah Louisa Baggs later married Arthur Hopper Emory and their daughter, Sarah Louisa Emory, married my great grandfather (her first cousin), Hopper Emory Nicholson.From this marriage, my great grandparents acquired parts of the original tracts owned by John Baggs.
The names of these properties originally owned by John Baggs (d. 1827) were: Kinsales Addition, Margaret Hill, Pemberton Resurveyed, and Margarholm.
From the court and land records, it seems that my John Baggs did not have any surviving sons when he died in 1827 since his properties were divided between only two daughters, one a minor, with no mention of any sons.
I know that there was another John Baggs in the area at the time who had both sons and daughters.I will have to check my records but I seem to recall that this John Baggs was the son of Isaac Baggs.I am sure that all of these Baggs are related but I have not been able to determine just how they are related.
Any information or suggestions you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
