I am not related to any of these people, but I do live in Maryland. I was surprised there are not more messages in the forum; Tilghman is a very well-known name here, especially on the Eastern Shore. In one of my books, "Colonial & Historic Homes of Maryland" by Don Swann, 1939, is the following on the mansion 'Kennersley:'

"In 1785 or 786 Richard Ireland Jones, Captain of a troop of horses attached to the Sixth Brigade of Queen Anne's County militia, married Susanna Carroll Tilghman, daughter of Colonel Edward Tilghman. At the time of their marriage, Susanna Carroll Tilghman owned a tract of 500 acres on South East Creek, near Church Hill. It was there that Jones built Kennersley....Richard and Susannah had one child, Arthur Tilghman Jones, born about the year 1787. Susannah died circa 1800 and left Kennersley to Arthur, but with a life interest to her husband, who later remarried."

The article mentions Arthur was married but no mention of children. He had financial problems and lost his money, slaves and property.
