Battle of the Alamo coincided with Carroll's independence
efforts

By Kevin Dayhoff, September 26, 2013

In October 1833 a referendum was held, in what we now know
as the area encompassing Baltimore, Carroll and Frederick counties, on whether
a new county was to be created. The vote failed, 593 to 554, although it was
later speculated that it failed because of voter irregularities in Baltimore
County.

Manchester, which had been against the idea of forming a
separate (Carroll) county, “exultantly fired [a cannon] in the direction of
defeated Westminster” after the vote was taken.

Subsequently a bill was introduced in 1835 and passed the
General Assembly on March 25, 1836 to form Carroll County.  This act was confirmed on January 19, 1837.

It took only a war of words that lasted about 50 years, but Carroll Countians
had finally become an independent county.

This portion of Carroll County history came to mind earlier
in the month as I pondered the events of Feb. 23 through March 6, 1836 while I
studied a small clay, mud and straw building in a far-off land, now known as
Texas.

Many will recognize the dates as when the Battle of the
Alamo took place in San Antonio Texas. I took a few days in early September to
tour the Alamo and San Antonio and study how its history compared with events
in Carroll County in the same time frame.

With the exception of Manchester getting a bit feisty in
1833 and about three military campaigns during the American Civil War, Carroll
County history is remarkably free of bloodshed and violence.



Although a small group of missionaries visited the San
Antonio area as early as the 1675-1691 time period, it was not until 1718 that
a mission outpost was built on the site of the Alamo. A more permanent building
was started in 1744… http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-eagle-archives-20130926,0,6733017.story

Carroll Lutherans started meeting in 1747

By Kevin Dayhoff, September 3, 2013


The Lutheran church in Maryland can possibly trace its roots
as far back as 1747 when small numbers of Lutherans and German Reformers began
meeting in private homes primarily in northern Carroll and Frederick Counties.

“The first church building in Carroll County was erected by
the Lutheran and Reformed congregations of Manchester in 1760…,” according to a
history, “Carroll County Maryland," written by Nancy Warner.

In Westminster, Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church is
celebrating its 146th anniversary this month. The historic church located at 21
Carroll St. in Westminster was chartered September 20-23, 1867, according to
various accounts including a history of Grace Lutheran published in 1967… http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-eagle-archives-20130903,0,6274260.story

Fundraiser scheduled for fallen Baltimore Co. police officer Jason Schneider this Sunday

Fundraiser scheduled for fallen Baltimore Co. police officer Jason Schneider this Sunday 

By Kevin E. Dayhoff, Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Please read more on Patch: 


A fundraiser honoring fallen Baltimore County Police Officer First Class Jason Schneider is scheduled to take place this Sunday, Sept. 29th, at the Humidour Cigar Shoppe in Cockeysville from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4 is hosting the event for the fallen police officer at 2 Sherwood Road. The cost for food, beer and beverages is $5.00 per person for police, firefighters/EMS, teachers and their families. The cost to the general public is $10.00 per person. There will be a limited selection of mixed drinks available at a cash bar on the trailer. Bartenders from the Hard Yacht Café will be on hand to assist the Tailgate Taskforce volunteers.

Schneider, 36 years old of Manchester, died at Shock Trauma after being shot while serving a warrant in Precinct 1/Wilkens on August 28, 2013.

He was born February 11, 1977 in California, the son of Charles Dennis Schneider and Karen Ann Buchheister Schneider. He was the husband of Ericka Nicole Fulton Schneider and is survived by his two children Brandon and Kayla, two brothers and their spouses, Kenneth and Autumn Schneider of Hampstead and Michael and Nicole Schneider of Westminster.

He was a 1995 graduate of North Carroll High School. After his graduation, served in the U.S Marine Corps. In addition to his duties as a police officer, Schneider was a member of the Baltimore County Police Swat Team for the past 9 years.

According to a Baltimore County police report, several weeks before the shooting, “On August 19 at 10:11 pm, officers responded for a shooting in the 100 block of Winters Lane. A 29-year-old man got into an argument with the suspect, and the suspect shot him. The victim was transported to the hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

“That investigation led detectives to a home in the unit block of Roberts Avenue on the morning of August 28. Tactical officers, including Officer Schneider, entered the home and encountered several subjects. At least one of the subjects was armed with a handgun and there was an exchange of gunfire. The officer and the suspect were both shot.

“Another officer also discharged his weapon. The officer involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative leave pending the investigation.
The incident remains under investigation.”

Schneider was well-known and respected in the close-knit circles of law enforcement and hundreds and hundreds of police officers from all over the mid-Atlantic region converged at the viewing at the Eckhardt Funeral home in Manchester on Friday, August 30. Gov. Martin O’Malley also visited with friends and family and spent a great deal of time with Schneider’s widow and children at the funeral home.

A Requiem Mass was celebrated on Saturday, August 31, at St. Bartholomew Roman Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Michael Roach officiated. Schneider was finally laid to rest after the funeral in Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens. Hundreds of first responders and police officers lined the funeral route to the cemetery.

“At this Sunday’s fundraiser, there will be plenty of food and drinks,” say organizers, “as well as raffles and auctions for prizes and gift baskets including wine, restaurant gift cards, cigars, firearms, a fishing charter, rounds of golf, a photo shoot, jewelry, overnight stay in an historic home and more! They'll also have multiple screens showing the football game, for those interested.”

A portion of the day’s sales and all proceeds from lunch tickets, the silent auction and raffles will be donated to the Memorial Fund established by the FOP Lodge #4 in honor of Fallen Hero Officer Jason Schneider to help his wife and kids.

According to information obtained from persons closely involved in putting the event together, “All items for raffle and auction, food, beverages, tents, port-a-johns, and everything else planned for the event are 100% donated. The cost for this event is still at ZERO, so every penny spent will go directly to the Jason Schneider Memorial Fund.

“The business community has really come through with an overwhelming show of support; in addition to the items listed below we have pre-raised over $4500.00. We have custom T-shirts being made up to thank those who spend $200.00 or more on Sunday, as well as stickers with the same logo for the first 300 attendees. The shirts will not be available afterwards. All SWAT operators (any jurisdiction) will have complimentary VIP access.”


Parking will be available at the business park just up Sherwood Road (there is staircase leading to the Humidour). The Episcopal church across the street has opened up their parking lot starting at 1pm. Overflow parking is available in the business/industry park located off of Railroad Avenue, and we will be running a shuttle from the parking lot of Titan Crossfit after 12pm.

For those who cannot make it to this Sunday’s event, contributions may be made to F.O.P. LODGE #4 and include on the memo line SCHNEIDER MEMORIAL FUND; mail the check to F.O.P. Lodge #4, 9304 Harford Road, Baltimore, MD 21234

For more information contact Finnie P. Helmuth, The Humidour Cigar Shoppe at 410-666-3212.
