Not connected all of the dot’s, but we are getting close. Remembering the David Ridgely Howard has two of my family surnames, Ridgely and Howard. Working my way back to the Revolutionary War ancestor of “Ridgely” I found the connection between the Howards and the Ridgely with a Ridgely, Col Henry Ridgely, Jr (1635 – 1710) buried in the same burial ground of my ancestor, Capt John Worthington (1607 – 1701). It is in the Saint Anne’s Burial Ground in Annapolis, Maryland.
I am not looking into my own family file, yet, but I think I am going to find at least one connection between David Ridgely Howard and Sarah Howard, Capt John’s wife.
But, I think there are other connections, as there are several other Surnames that I have found, along the way, that also link into my family file.
