Hi, PJ. Greetings from New Orleans, where I am at the moment!

Your point about the extent of Baltimore County at its beginning is well taken. However, I'd still maintain my theory that apples tend to fall fairly close to the tree, and when they don't, it's an exception that needs extra documentation or proof!

One problem with the Days is that there are a lot of them! There is a Day family of Bucks County, Penna, tracing back to a Christopher Day. There are Baltimore County, Maryland, Days, centered around Gunpowder Falls, and tracing back to a Nicholas Day, and they have a John Day who I would love to confuse with my ancestor John Day.

I'd be happy to share with you -- or anyone reading this -- a "database" I created in MS Word to collect all the information I could find on Maryland Days before 1800. Just email me at I'd of course appreciate information to add to it. Although my original hope in creating the database -- that I'd be able to tie the various Days together -- has moved toward simply being able to document the various Day families. None of them seem to have been well-to-do enough to trace back across the Atlantic; my ancestry to Charlemagne has to come from other lines!
