22 Nov 1717 Retinah Shipley is born to Robert and Elizabeth Shipley at Christ Church (a.k.a. Queen Caroline's Parish), Howard County[1], Maryland.[2]


  1. According the history of Howard County, the county was not established until the 1850s. Prior to it's establishment, the area was known as Anne Arundel County, so it's puzzling to see "Howard" listed as the county on Retinah's birth record. I've placed her in both geographical categories. -- J. Ricketts, 7 June 2015
