Have discovered history of my "Birmingham Manor" photo. Manor built about 1690 by Richard Snowden Jr. and destroyed by fire 1891. Site now on east side of Baltimore-Washington Parkway opposite Laurel Airport. Nearby family cemetery now part of Fort Meade. One of the last occupants was Julius Snowden who married Estelle Bird, and hence my middle name. (Inherited the name and, as "Aunt Estelle" used to call it, "the Snowden pitcher"... coin silver made in 1823 in Philly.) Regards to any out there who might have info. on Julius or Estelle.
Dean Snowden Bird PS: Book "Montpelier & The Snowden Family" by William G. Cook 1976 is a goldmine of info.
