Re: My Fisher-Brooks-Fury-Linder, MD/VA Connection

Hello Fellow Listers.

As of now I don't have much... but, my great, great-grandmother's parents were Matilda (Fisher) Brooks(B:~1824, MD) who was married to Benjamin Brooks (B: ~1813,MD). Their daughter Clarissa Olivia (Brooks) Fury(B: 09/13/1841,MD, D: 12/01/1911, MD) . Now, I do know (have document) that Clarissa was confirmed on 04 April 1871 at St Luke's (Episcopal or Anglican) Church, Baltimore MD. I believe that they at one time lived on Sarasota Street, or at least Clarissa did as a Fury. Clarissa married William H. Fury(B:~1834, VA, D: 01/17/1896, MD). Then Florence Virginia Fury married George William Linder. Then their son William Clifton Linder to mom, then to me. The late Cardinal Dennis Dougherty is a cousin of Florence Virginia through the Fury family. The late Bishop McCormick is Cardinal Dougherty's cousin. I will gladly exchange any information that I may have. God bless, peace, prayers, and blessings. Dolores Cobb Phifer

I am searching:

Although, I lived in Philadelphia, PA, most of my ancestors came from IL, AR, MO, MD, VA, TN, NC, SC, AL. I am a Southerner at heart.
