This isn't exactly genealogy, but rather a matter of
general county history. Howard County doesn't have an
appropriate forum for this type of query (and the forum
host doesn't mind: I checked).
I'm hoping to contact anyone who remembers Mr. LEDBETTER's
meat locker (on St. Johns Lane in Ellicott City) and
DELP's Taxi Service (on Main Street). Perhaps I could be
pointed toward any present day family members who may
still be in the area. Many thanks!
