Okay , Got to rewind a little bit , Capt. Charles Gassaway Born Anne Arundle County died before Dec 11, 1816 in pleasant hill,Montgomery county Md. . My family was from Montgomery county also , John Hanson Gassaway Sr. Jr. John Hanson GassawayFor some reason Our family's sold off their land in annapolis Anne Arundle Co.area & moved to Montgomery county.maybeland was bad from growing tobacco for so long. Tobacco was our family's cash crop & we imported it back to the old world ( England )in 1960an acre of tobacco netted close to $2000.00 if it was ofgood weight !But it drains the soil terribly of nutrients & after awhile 100 years or so .The soil is not good for much of anything ! This was before Both of ourAncestor John Hanson Gassaway & Cousins of Capt.Charles Gassaway (Gassaway Family ) &others In Montgomery & German town - Howard Co.- Baltimore county. The Gassaway's Bought up more land. Wespread outfrom each other sadly ! & lost contact !before the civil war The Gassaway's were a close family, We were very, verywealthy from years of Tobacco sales to England. I will ask some distant relations of mine who Know this a bit better then I do . who are your.You are related to the Warfields , the Dorsey's & some others also . But you & I areDefinitely cousins !My Grand father William G. Gassaway was a Lawyer for C&P& He lived in Baltimore County . He was also a member of the Maryland House of Deli gets from 1933 to 1937he unfortunately died fromthe effects of smoking Tobacco !!Kind of Ironic isn't it !I never got to meet him sadly.I wish I could have lived the lifethat my father did . For he was truly born with the silver spoon. He lived in a manor House in a Very secludedWealthy neighbor hood. My Grate grandfathers House in Ellicot city Md.Over looking the Patapsco River, Ellicot city Md. My father was John D. GassawayI am 100 percent Gassaway !
