Well Was this in Baltimore CITY or Baltimore CO, as perhaps you know the
records are totally separate for the two. To dig up a grave and move it
sometimes required a permit and that is what they are talking about, I am
not sure who would issue such. I guess you could send an E-mail to the MSA
and ask them.
Also, When I was young, my grandfather had a friend named Mr. Harry Thursby,
As I recall he lived on Windsor Mill Road a mile or so north of Rolling
Road, I recall one time he took a horse and the old hay rake (from my
grandfather's farm) out to do some work, that was probably 40 years ago..
