Jim Sanders at Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website and blog has created the Genealogy by the States blogging prompt, suggesting each week we blog about an ancestor or one of our families that have a connection to that state. This week's state is Maryland.
- Thomas Jefferson Begole, the son of William Rivers Begole and Rachel Starr, who was born about 1776, in Maryland. I have seen the Begole name spelled as Begold, too.
- Ann Matelda Nancy Bowles, the daughter of Thomas Bowles and Eleanor Price, who was born about 1783, in Maryland-possibly Hagerstown.
