Day In (Maryland Appeals) Court

Maryland Reports: Cases Adjudged in the Court of Appeals...:

  • Appeal From The Circuit Court Of Baltimore County
  • November 1854
  • Taylor's Mount, Residence Of The Defendant
  • Witnesses Costa And Orso Day
  • Decided 10 March 1865

My Relatively Fiction blog post, Cousins Found In An Underground Railroad Story, related that William Y. Day lived at Taylor's Mount.

It was the phrase "son of William Y. Day, of Taylor's Mount, Maryland," that really got my attention.  In my early Maryland family tree, Arthur Taylor's grandson, John Greer, married Sarah Day, daughter of Nicholas and Sarah Day.  I'm related to William Y. Day and his slave offspring, John Wesley Gibson, through both the Taylor and Day lines.
