Thank you to the many people people who joined me for the discussion about Texas Maryland that was held at the Hereford Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library on October 16, 2014. I wish I could have recorded the many stories that were told by descendants and former Texas residents. Some of you have promised to bring documents and photos to the Historical Society so that they can be scanned in high resolution to be added to the Texas collection.
Several of you asked about the World War I munitions plant that was located in Texas. I am hoping that I can someday produce an historic map showing the locations of former structures in Texas, but in the meantime, I though I would share what I have found so far. Americas Munitions is just one of the many documents where I see the Texas Maryland munitions plant mentioned. I have also uploaded a few others, such as Poole war munitions 1915 and Poole Engineering Iron Age. I also found an article in the 1920 Towson Jeffersonian (see 1920 Texas Md Poole) that describe the purchase of the property by Mr. Bosley, to include the Padian mansion (Taylor’s Hall, the former Cockey Estate), other buildings and land, with the intent to start a quarrying operation as well as farming. Note that the same newspaper column mentions a Miss Kathryn McGuire and the funeral of Miss Loretta Tull.
For more about Taylor’s Hall, see http://msa.maryland.gov/megafile/msa/stagsere/se1/se5/003000/003500/003500/pdf/msa_se5_3500.pdf
If any of you have more information to share, please let me know. ~~Cassie
Col. Harry Gilmor, of Glen Ellyn, near Texas Maryland, raised a confederate regiment of Irish immigrants living in Texas Maryland. My great-great-grandfather, Patrick Scally and his brother-in-law, Michael Croghan, were among those who served in the Confederacy under Gilmor during the Civil War. Do you have an ancestor from Texas Maryland who served (on either side) during the civil war?
If you know about Texas Maryland, you know that there is not much left to save about the village itself. There are buildings that I would like to see preserved, and there is St. Joseph’s Church and School, and although it is all called Cockeysville now, plenty of people still refer to the area as “Texas”. But what is the best way for us to “Save Texas”? Are you willing to share your family history? Family photos? Objects or documents related to the history of Texas and its residents? Other ideas?
It used to be a village in Baltimore County that was settled by Irish and other immigrants during the 19th century but grew with and then was overtaken by Cockeysville. It was once called Clark’s Switch, and Ellengowan, and there was even a Post Office there until the 1950s. If you ever lived there or had an ancestor who lived there, you know where it is, and can probably still imagine what it used to be. I hope to be able to save and share all of your memories so that others will know about the area and what it meant to those who lived there or came from there.
