Texas, Maryland Archaeological Dig

Yesterday, the Baltimore Sun ran an interesting story on an archaeological dig of a nineteenth century Irish settlement in Texas, Maryland, a short train ride north of Baltimore. A Keating family, though not mentioned in the article, has long roots in this community.

  1. If there are any Keating researchers that ARE looking into the Texas Maryland Keatings, I would be interested in hearing from them. I am the historian and Texas descendant mentioned in the Sun article. I have several death certificates and plenty of census data on these Keatings, plus information from the St. Joseph’s Jubilee published in 1927. Visit http://www.FriendsofTexasMaryland.org and contact me if you are related or just interested.

  2. Hello Keatings,

    If there are interested family members, I would love to hear from you about your family history in Texas, MD.

  3. Hello Keatings,

    My name is Stephen Brighton, professor of archaeology at the University of Maryland. I am conducting the historical archaeological project featured in the Baltimore Sun – also there is a featured WYPR radio interview I did concerning the project, the Irish Diaspora, and Texas, MD. If there are interested family members, I would love to hear from you about your family history in Texas, MD.
