Baltimore, Maryland

Although most of my kinfolk stayed in the South, not all did. My grandmother, Pearl Cofield Robinson, had a brother who went North and stayed. John Louis Cofield joined the army in the 1920s, and his service took him to the Baltimore area where he met his future bride, Christine Wittkouski. Their son, Richard, indicated to me that he thought his father also spent time in Canada and Detroit, Michigan.

The photo above was taken in the early 1950s from the Cofield family's apartment on Lombard Street in Baltimore. Richard still lives in Baltimore, and his parents are buried there in Louden Park Cemetery.

It is very interesting to see a black and white street scene from this city, Mona. Thanks for the post.

So I assume Danial Dulaney was your ancestor?

It takes a lot of focus and new clean houses to see a built road. All over.I heart the atmosphere. Its clear. Well for a little popular growth. Never under or over crowded. Wealthy
