There are none outside of church records and family Bibles. Baltimore City
did not start recording births until 1875. There is a book on port of
BAltimore entries 1820 through about 1836. Marriage licenses do exist in MD
since about 1776 for Baltimore. (Baltimore City did not become an enitity
in itself until 1851).
If the father died in 1850, did you check the mortality schedule of the census??
