Re:My Fisher-Brooks-Fury-Linder, MD/VA Connection
Hello Fellow Listers.
As of now I don't have much... but, my great, great-grandmother's parents were Matilda (Fisher) Brooks(B:~1824, MD) who was married to Benjamin Brooks (B: ~1813,MD).Their daughter Clarissa Olivia (Brooks) Fury(B: 09/13/1841,MD, D: 12/01/1911, MD) .Now, I do know (have document) that Clarissa was confirmed on 04 April 1871 at St Luke's (Episcopal or Anglican) Church, Baltimore MD.I believe that they at one time lived on Sarasota Street, or at least Clarissa did as a Fury.Clarissa married William H. Fury(B:~1834, VA, D: 01/17/1896, MD).Then Florence Virginia Fury married George William Linder.Then their son William Clifton Linder to mom, then to me.The late Cardinal Dennis Dougherty is a cousin of Florence Virginia through the Fury family.The late Bishop McCormick is Cardinal Dougherty's cousin.I will gladly exchange any information that I may have.God bless, peace, prayers, and blessings.Dolores Cobb Phifer

Although, I lived in Philadelphia, PA, most of my ancestors came from IL, AR, MO, MD, VA, TN, NC, SC, AL.I am a Southerner at heart.
