Blog Query: William T Claude Worthington

Christiane Claude says:

My grandfather was William T Claude…son of Sophia Muse Worthington. He helped move Capt John Worthington’s remains to St Anne’s Church. There is a book published early 80′s? called Family of Annapolis… University of Maryland archives have letters saved from the families.too. hope this helps?

Thank you for that. I will have to see if I can find that book. I wonder if your grandfather knew the Worthington’s from Frederick, like Judge Glenn Howard Worthington, who was also involved with the move of Capt. John.

Again, Thank you,

    Dear Christiane and Russ:

    My name is Richard Thomas, my wife is Anne Lee Fitzhugh Dierdorff Thomas. Her maternal grandmother was Anne Lee Fitzhugh Claude (1894-1980). William Tell Claude (1899-1999) was her younger brother. I had a couple of comments: 1) The Annapolis Maryland Families book was written by Robert Harry McIntire Gateway Press (Baltimore) in 1979. 2) The University of Maryland has a series of special collection letters
    Claude-Gray-Hughes-Tuck-Whittington Family papers
    some of the letter s are digitized and collection can be viewed in College Park;
    Special Collections
