Mackie, Norman Vardney, III. "Gravestone Procurement in St. Mary's County, 1634-1820." Maryland Historical Magazine 83 (Fall 1988): 229-40.
Annotation / Notes: Thirteen cemeteries were evaluated in this study which demonstrates the socio-economic data that can be compiled from the use and construction type of gravestones. The raw materials of the stones, their style, and the distribution of the stones can all be evaluated and the economic condition of the time deduced. For example, as more prosperous wheat growing farmers populated the area more money was spent on permanent markers. Also, as sandstone became available in the county more tombstone carvers were able to work in the area.

Diggs, Louis S. It All Started on Winters Lane: A History of the Black Community in Catonsville, Maryland. Baltimore: Uptown Press, 1995.
Annotation / Notes: A compilation on the history of the historic African American community of Winters Lane in Catonsville, this volume includes a rich collection of family history and documents related to the history of black churches, civic organizations, businesses, and social groups. It also provides several extensive oral histories with elders in the community. Like many African American communities in Baltimore County, Winters Lane had its roots in the pre-Civil War era as a settlement of free blacks who worked on area farms and in the growing village, and it has persisted into the modern period of suburbanization. Louis Diggs in this and other volumes on the county's historic African American communities includes an extensive set of photos and other documents previously unpublished on local black family and community life.
Lancaster, R. Kent. "Green Mount: The Introduction of the Rural Cemetery into Baltimore." Maryland Historical Magazine 74 (March 1979): 62-79.
Annotation / Notes: Lancaster traces the history of Baltimore's Green Mount Cemetery, established in the 1830s as one of the country's earliest urban "rural cemeteries." Modeled after Mt. Auburn in Boston, it was intended as "a careful blending of nature, art, and death." He examines the lists of early subscribers to evaluate the social significance of the institution. He also traces the design and construction of the cemetery, as well as the changing styles for grave markers. Lancaster observes that Green Mount today is surrounded by urban congestion and seldom visited, yet it remains a treasure trove of Baltimore's connection with its past.
Papenfuse, Eric Robert. "From Recompense to Revolution: Mahoney v. Ashton and the Transfiguration of Maryland Culture, 1791-1802." Slavery & Abolition 15 (December 1994): 38-62.
Annotation / Notes: The article examines the case of Charles Mahoney, who petitioned Maryland courts for his freedom from slavery in the 1790s. Tracing the intricate legal basis for the case, won initially, but lost on appeal, Papenfuse places it in the context of the cross-currents of revolutionary ideology-American and French-and fears about threats to the social order, such as those generated by slave revolts in Santo Domingo.
