Kemp grave to be marked in cer­e­mony

The Star Democrat - - LIFE -

The Mary­land So­ci­ety of the United States Daugh­ters of 1812 will place a his­tor­i­cal marker on the grave of Thomas Kemp (1779–1824) on Sun­day, Sept. 23, at the Wades Point Inn in McDaniel. The Fells Point ship builder con­structed the Schooner Chas­seur, also known as the Pride of Bal­ti­more, and other ships used in the War of 1812. Af­ter the war, Kemp pur­chased Wades Point and moved his fam­ily there, where the Kemp fam­ily ceme­tery still stands.
