POSSIBLE LINKS MY FAMILY TO BEALES IN MARYLAND
I was able to find a number of connections between ancestor George Beale 3rd (1791-1835), his wife Emily
Truxtun Beale (1798-1885) AND people from Southern Maryland. This suggests George & Emily had numerous
dealings with people from the St Mary's / Charles County area. Many of these people were Catholic.
Emily Truxtun Beale ca 1830
Bloomingdale, the home of George & Emily Beale, built ca 1820. House on 50 acre tract, which included Prospect Hill.
1890 map shows area of 50 acre Bloomingdale estate southeast of New Reservoir. Red line at
bottom left of map is Florida Ave. Beale house may be black dot above Florida to left of
Road leading to Glenwood Cemetery. Prospect Hill below Glenwood Cemetery.
Here is a current map of Bloomingdale as it exists today. It covers much of the old Beale estate of Bloomingdale.
Here is the Bloomingdale website found by Lynell Beale Marshall:
Click "History", then "brief history of Bloomingdale" and a study of the "unit block of Rhode Island Avenue, NW".
Prospect Hill Cemetery exits, so part of the Beale land is still not built
on. It borders the current Bloomingdale.
