Link: "A Brief History of Linthicum Heights" (Wayback Machine) was written in 1938 by Sweetser Linthicum. The second page discusses the acquisition and development of the land that is now Linthicum, MD by Abner Linthicum, Sr. and his children.
Link: Linthicum (Wayback Machine) is a long list of Linthicums with birth dates, death dates, and spouses. (Compiled by Gwen Oliver of Ohio?) A lot of the dates are missing and some disagree with the dates I have. For example, Abner Linthicum, Sr.'s date of death is listed as 1847-02-19, rather than the 1848-02-08 date I found in the 1934 Genealogy of the Linthicum and Allied Families.
Link: Abner LINTHICUM - ... (Wayback Machine) is an index of Linthicums in Janice A. Devan's on-line genealogy.

(Quoted from Genealogy of the Linthicum and Allied Families, 1934.)

The following poem appeared in the newspaper at the time of the marriage of Abner Linthicum, Sr., and Mrs. Elizabeth Pitcher, Dec. 2, 1828:

"They say that Love is the heyday of Youth,
And Beauty the only Bewitcher;
But that is not so, for just look above,
A Statesman has married a Pitcher."
