  1. My wife, Tenby, nee Galloway, Ihde, is related to Dr. John Galloway who had an office as a physician in Ellengowan in 1863 and whose office is shown on an 1877 map at intersection of Galloway Ave. and York Turnpike. I have seen the photos posted on the site and we would like to come visit so that we could see them in person. Is this possible? We live about two hours away in VA.

    1. Steven, many of those buildings in the photos are gone now, however, the Historical Society of Baltimore County is located in the old Almshouse, which is atop the hill above where Dr. Galloway’s office sat and holds many more photos in their collection. Much of my collection is also housed there. I am not certain, but I believe that Dr. Galloway’s office was in one of the two buildings pictured here.

  2. My Great Grandfather William Patrick Costello was born in April of 1870 in Texas Maryland.

    His Father Joseph and mother Ellen Costello immigrated there from Ireland.

    He had a brother Thomas, a sister Ann, Mary, and another brother James, who were also born there.

    They moved to Detroit, then onto Buffalo, NY.

    1. Some of the Costellos came from the townlands near Strokestown in Roscommon, and some may have been from Ballykilcline in particular. Do you know from where in Ireland Joseph & Ellen Costello emigrated?

  3. Do you have any I for.ation on the Philip and Margaret Kennedy from Texas, Maryland? They were my 4th great grandparents and I am having trouble finding many records on them. They were married before 1853.

    Thank you,

    1. I have several newspaper articles that reference Philip and Margaret:

      The St. Joseph’s Church Jubilee Book published in 1927 listed Philip Kennedy, Martin Kennedy, and Patrick Kennedy all as members of the parish, but does not list their relationships.
