Equity Court Abstracts
These are abstracts from Equity Court Records of Frederick County, Maryland,
Liber DHH-1; many times providing family data on the defendant and sometimes on
persons not mentioned on the docket. Some of the listings are quite informative
while others, being dismissed, may only have the date and name of plantiff and
defendant. However, the cases brought before the judge consisted of sworn testimony
and each one holds a story. Perhaps you will find a story connected to your search. [Records Located at Maryland State Archives]
