Marriages and Deaths from the “Maryland Gazette,” 1727-1839. Robert W. Barnes. 2009.
The Maryland Gazette was published in Annapolis between the years 1727 and 1839. From its infancy it carried occasional references to marriages and deaths of Maryland citizens. Drawing on this unique resource, the text of Mr. Barnes’ book consists of abstracts of approximately 3,000 marriages and deaths of Marylanders–not only from the Annapolis area but from the entire state. A surname index to brides, ministers, and others, including parents and relatives, serves as a guide to an additional 2,000 persons.
