Hi, My name is Sharon Wick
I am the Creator of Ohio Genealogy Express, however
I have ties in some counties in Indiana and other states.
I have decided to put my research data online for all others
in theses areas to see.
I am not going to do the whole state as I don't
have time, however
I will be doing selected counties as I see fit.
This particular county includes some of my lines
some may be GRINDALL/GRINDLE, GRINNELL, WHEELER, and others.
Thanks for visiting.

Harford County was
formed in 1773 from the eastern part of Baltimore County. It
contains Tudor Hall, birthplace of Abraham Lincoln's assassin, John
Wilkes Booth. Harford County also hosted the signers of the Bush
Declaration, a precursor document to the American Revolution.
The county was named for Henry Harford (ca. 1759-1834),
illegitimate son of Frederick Calvert, 6th Baron Baltimore. Harford
was the last Proprietary Governor of Maryland, but did not inherit
his father's title because of his illegitimacy.
Havre de Grace, an incorporated city in Harford County,
was once under consideration to be the capital of the United States
rather than Washington, D.C.. It was favored for its strategic
location at the top of the Chesapeake Bay; this location would
facilitate trade while being secure in time of war. Today, the
waterways around Havre de Grace have been silted, one of the primary
environmental issues of Harford County.
The county has a number of properties on the National
Register of Historic Places.
