You all may want to join the Calvert email list. http://jadis.darktech.org/genealogy/calvert.html
Cal, Thanks for the great info. I am sending your an envelope, would you like a copy of Anita Calvert Bourgeoise book? I also have a letter from another person and Letters of my GGRANDFATHER William Marion Calvert MD, who mentions Mrs Bourgeoise coming to visit them for interviews.
I found my Anita Calvert Bourgeoise BOOK, "The Calvert Family - of- Maryland and Virginia"
There is a stamped date in the book "St. Louis, MO. Public Library, Oct 4, 1919". The book was copywriter in 1916. So the book is at least 83 years old.
Thanks to Debbie Wodickers of High Ridge, MO who was kind enough to go to the library and make me a copy as the library would not lend it our on library loan. I had located two books one in St. Louis, MO and the other Fort Wayne, Allen CO., Ind.
Dan Whitmire sent me a copy of a Anita Calvert Bourgeoise letter head letter. Boy that was a thong twister.
Email from Elizabeth Calvert news paper clipping among her grandmothers notes.
Newspaper clipping: "Kansas City, Mo., Jan 5, 1913 ― The Western Calvert Heirs' Association met here today and resolved to take up the fight of possession of the lands in and around the city of Baltimore that were granted in the 17th century to Lord Baltimore by King James I of England. The estate, for which the association assert they will soon open a legal contest, has an estimated value of $600,000,000."
Here are some other email that may be interested in joining our search. They chatted were on the Calvert email last year when the subject on the Calvert Heirs came up. Greg Nelson said that the lawsuit was actually filed in Baltimore, and that the family lost their claim. If you want to look for the suit, I would expect to find it filed in the late 20s or early 30s, and to be title Calvert Heirs v. City of Baltimore. They were still trying to raise money when Cora Hiatt published her Chenaweth history which was Greg Nelson's line.

To Lord Baltimore- Heirs, et al
My name is Earl C. Padgett, Jr. My gg-grandmother was Harriet Calvert of
Farmers, KY. I have done some research into the Calvert line and have it down
pretty "pat" from Harriet back, but someone "slept on the wrong side of the
If anyone is real interested in doing the Calvert family, I would recommend
"The Virginia Calverts" by O'Gorman which is a genealogy book of some 700+
pages. I got my information from microfiche (sp?) at the Mid-Continent
Library in Independence, MO. I have seen the book itself in the Public
Library of Warrensburg, MO. My cousin found it in the Chicago Public Library
and my sister found it in the New York City Public Library. Therefore, I
think that this book is readily available, maybe even in the Mormon Family
History Library in Salt Lake City or at any of the branches around the
country. It might be on the Internet also.
I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Bolton-on-Swale, Yorkshire,
England to Kiplin Hall, which is the birth place of George Calvert, later
First Lord (Baron) Baltimore. Also we had lunch at the White Swan in the
village of Danby Wiske, Yorkshire which George Calvert bought in 1616, that
is, he bought the village. There is a coat of arms for the Calvert Family
which is on the Maryland State flag. Look in the encyclopedia under Maryland.
If you are interested in your family connection to George Calvert, get a copy
of the O'Gorman book or the microfilm, etc.
I have a copy of a letter from Anita Calvert Bourgeoise dated January 21,
1916, to my great grandfather, John C. Padgett of Florence, KS. If anyone
wants a copy of this letter, I will sent it to you free of charge if you send
me a stamped self-addressed business envelope(#10).
That is about all I know, but would be happy to answer questions if I can. I
kind of feel that the lawsuit was real, but hopeless. But I don't know.
