Additional comments.
1. Rigbie House
Thank you for adding the photo of the Rigbie House marker. I've traveled in Harford, Baltimore Counties, and others, for genealogy. My great great grandfather, William Corse, of Furley Hall, Baltimore, was born in the Rigbie House in 1804. His grandmother was Cassandra Rigbie.

Beside the restored Hossana School we found some of the broken stones from the cemetery across the road. Most were unclear, however we did find one name ... Rigbie.
