Regarding Maryland Goldsboroughs:
May I suggest sources for you?
a) Maryland Historical Society Library
on Monument St in Baltimore.
b) Enoch Pratt (Free) Library Main branch
on Cathedral St in Baltimore.
Also on the web ...
c) The Maryland State Archives - aka -
the Hall of Records.
Goldsboroughs have been Governors, US senator, USNavy Admiral, CSA Colonel,
Judge & so forth.
There is one line called the Yerbury GOldsboroughs. and there are other lines
designated in the same way. (I just cant remember the names.)
As I remember there was one Eastern Shore
Goldsborough who moved to Frederick around
1800 or so (?) and started the name out there. There is the town of Goldsboro, PA
was named for an engineer from maryland
named Goldsborough(!)
who built a Railroad in York County, PA.
My Goldsborough family was from St Mary's
County and prior to 1800 or so they were
The 1880 census lists where one's
parents were born. There is not much left
of the 1890 census. Hope this helps.
