"Descendants of Gen IV-5.
Rev. Slingsby Linthicum born 1758, died June 28, 1848
In 1806 Rev. Slingsby Linthicum with Nicholas B. Warfield, Wm. Ridgely of Wm., Vachel Burgess, John Johnston, Nicholas Meriweather, Thomas W. Howard of Thos., and Allen Gree, all being trustees for the Society of Methodists, purchase land in Anne Arundel County from Walter Worthington for the purpose of erecting a meeting house.
Rev. Slingsby mar. (1) Mary Griffith, dau. of Charles and Anne (Davidge) Griffith; (2) Widow Dorsey; no children.
A. Lot b. March 3, 1784, lived in Nealsville, Montgomery Co., Md; mar. (1) 1811, Catherine Warfield, daughter of Vachel, son of Benjamin and Rebekah Warfield.

1. Vachel W. b. Nov. 15, 1815, mar. Oct. 20, 1837, Mary Jane Hoyle.
a. Daughter married Tom Hunt. ^
2. Lloyd W. etc."

Note the picking up of the father-in-law's name for the son. I have a similar family name in my uncle was apparently named for a family near where he was born, being John Buren Linthicum called Buren all of his life. I left out the penned notes but they fit where I have put ^.
Use a lot of caution on similar names, I am descended from a long line of Archibalds and Hezekiahs and have seen people assume that an unusual name for our time means it was unique in the past too. There are 25 mentions of Hezekiah Linthicum in Mrs. Badger's book, at least 15 of them are different people.
