Residents of Charles County, MD in 1658

“We would like to thank Ralph Smith for his generous offer to allow us to publish the results of his research on early residents.  While his research was primarily focused on Charles County, the year was 1658 when Charles County was created and before this time, these people were all from St. Mary’s County and indeed some of them remained here.”
