Whilst doing some research in historical newspapers today, I came across an article in the Baltimore Sun of Saturday, September 3, 1898. The surnames found in this article include: Connor, O’Hara, Padian, Cockey, Mulcahy, McDermott, Bussey, Lindsay, Rodgers, Kenourly, Flavin, Connolly, Fitzgerald, Shea, Ryan, Kennedy, Kelly, Bradley, Hanley, Scally, Doyle, Maguire, Martin, Noppenburger, Hyland, Kenney, O’Connor, and Moore.  In addition to Cardinal Gibbons, priests mentioned were Frs Campbell, McKenny, Murray, Dougherty, Donahue, Lenaghan, and Thomas.st-josephs-dedicates-new-altar-1898

  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 friendsoftexasmaryland.org 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. https://cassiekt.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/wisewilliams-photo.jpg
