CD: Portrait and Biographical Records of the Eastern Shore of Maryland - Chapman Publishing Company. "Biography alone can justly represent the progress of local history and portray with accuracy the relation of men to events." Rather than rely on dry statistical records, the writers of this volume "have gone to the people, the men and women who have, by their enterprise and industry, brought the county to a rank second to none among those comprising this great and noble state, and from their lips have the story of their life struggles. It tells how some, commencing life in poverty, by industry and economy, have accumulated wealth. It tells how others, with limited advantages for securing an education, have become learned men and women, with an influence extending throughout the length and breadth of the land. It tells of men who have risen from the lower walks of life to eminence as statesmen, and whose names have become famous. It tells of those in every walk in life who have striven to succeed, and records how that success has usually crowned their efforts…In the life of every man and of every woman is a lesson that should not be lost upon those who follow after." A fullname index completes this volume. (1898), 2006, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe, v6, PC and Mac, 922 pp. 101-CD3120 ISBN: 078843120x
