  1. Is there a place to go and read about Texas MD. I have a picture of a baseball team with my father as one of the players I would
    Like to donate to your collection if you wanted it.

    1. My great-great grandfather Patrick Thomas Flanagan settled in Texas village in the mid- to late-1860 after leaving County Roscommon, Ireland. One of his daughters, Margaret Angela, was my great-grandmother.

  2. I am one James Chilcoat’s grandsons. As a child I spent many of my week ends at the Almshouse with my grandparents. My dad was actually born in the house. I have so many memories of that area. I also have a lot of information about the house through the stories my grandfather and father shared with me over my years of growing up. My siblings and I always referred to it as the Big House! The photos bring back a lot of wonderful memories of my grandfather and father. To this day I still drive around there and reminisce.
    Thank you for preserving my memories!

  3. I would love to get some more information on the owners of Taylor Hall. I believe it was Richard Padien?

      1. I’m an archaeologist and I believe that I’ve found Richard Padian’s first home site. Just got very interested in him and his family since Padonia Station and Padonia Road were both named after him. Thanks for the info! This is a wonderful webpage!

          1. I have found an old home site using Lidar on land that Richard Padian owned according to old maps. It’s basically at the corner of Greenpoint and Padonia. There’s just remains of an old foundation. I’m doing research to hopefully document it as an archaeological site. I’d love to hear more about the information you have on him. Is it something you could possibly email me? Thanks!

  4. Just looking back at the photos. My mother was born in a house located on Church lane about three houses east of the Church and behind the Star Motel. My grandfather worked for the rail road as a telegraph operator. Going back further My great grand father had a blacksmith shop on York Rd. South of the Star Motel. I believe I have some photos of me with my great grandfather and my grand father holding me for the photo, will have to look for them. FYI their name was Anderson. As for me I have many fond memories around Texas and Cockeysville Md. Just saying.

  5. I have many memories of Texas Maryland. I grew up on gibbons boulevard and I used to swim at Beaver dam swim club when I was a kid. I used to hang out with your brother quite a bit when we were young.
    Just curious if there are any photos of the big tower that used to be at Beaver dam swim club. I know they tore it down but when I was a kid I always wanted to jump off of it but was afraid to.

  6. I live on Ashland right across from the Dutch Market and I was wondering if there is any information about the area or even the house. I think the house was built in 1953.

    1. Bethany, I assume that you are asking about the house you live in – historical information about the ownership of that property might be searchable in the county land records, which could then lead you to knowing more about that area in particular. There is a fair bit of information about Ashland itself and there is a facebook group called Remembering Ashland of Cockeysville, MD (

      1. Oh my gosh thank you so much!! I’m looking for both actually. The area is really cool and I’m sure there’s some rich history there.
