Surnames: Plowman
I am in need of some assistance with proving one piece of information for my DAR application. The records available online are sparce.

STATE: Maryland
COUNTY: Baltimore (to the best of my knowledge)

Looking for Estate/Probate for James M Plowman (or other records - see below)

Death Date Unknown: After 1813 (Between 1813 and 1820)

Query/Proof: I am looking for any piece of information which shows how Richard Plowman (1787 - 1838) is related to James M Plowman. The book "Plowmans in America" shows this relationship, but I require some kind of additional official records to support this relationship.

This is the last piece of information that I need. Would anyone be able to help me?

You can go to Baltimore and look for estate, land and court records, or hire a researcher to do so for you. One place to look for a possible researcher is the website of the Association of Professional Genealogists. The MD Historical Society or a local genealogical society may also have lists of available researchers.

Baltimore city and County land records have been posted on the internet at To utilize the site you must register (free) - they will send you a password.

Since your application must go through a particular existing DAR chapter, have you sought help from the person in such a chapter who is assigned to help applicants with their applications?
