If you are interested, there is a large amount of the Windsor family. Our family is related to the Tuckers as well as others. My aunt Ann has more on the history of the Windsorís. From what I understand, my grandfatherís great grandfather bought property around the Molly Berry Road area for a penny an acre from the Indian's. Tobacco was raise through out the area. We sold our product to bidders at a Upper Marlboro warehouse. My gramdfathers use to farm tobacco as well as building tobacco barns which can still be seen through out the Brandywine area. Some of our family is interlated, such as my grandmother and grandfather ( both last names of Windsor)and it would be easy to find the who is related to whom. From what I gathered, our family came from South Carolina to Maryland, but I do not know when. I do believe they served in 1812 war out of South Carolina, so I am guessing sometime after 1812. I also believe they brought farming tobacco from S.C. I will send this link to some of my family and hopefully they can add more.
