Once again, a family cemetery is standing in the way of development in Baltimore County -- this time for a proposed restaurant-office complex in Cockeysville.In a twist for preservation, though, the property owners want to create a nearby history park and relocate the remains of the Cockey family -- founding members of Cockeysville -- there. The reinterment would pave the way for a Bob Evans restaurant, Romano's Macaroni Grill and an office building on the north side of Padonia Road, just east of Interstate 83.Yesterday, a zoning official endorsed the plan to relocate the 200-year-old graveyard to another site -- as long as family members agreed.

In 1871, a free black man named London Pinkney purchased 89 acres on a secluded peninsula along the quiet waters of Back Creek in Annapolis. During the past century, the land Pinkney farmed has been sold and developed into suburban communities -- except for a small waterfront lot at 391 Georgetown Road that was sold out of the family in 1957 and remained vacant. But a plan to build a house on this lot has ignited a fight over what some see as a slight to the prominent role the family played in the city's history because descendants believe the land might be the family's cemetery.

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft of five footstones and the vandalism of eight tombstones at a private family cemetery in Westminster, authorities said yesterday. A resident reported the damage to Deputy Gary Jenkins, who found the tombstones pushed over and broken at the Gist family cemetery on the 100 block of Federal Ann Court. The theft of the footstones also was discovered. "I am still in shock," said Harriet Zurl, 55, who said about six generations of her family are buried in the gated cemetery, which sits on a half-acre south of Hook Road.

When Johnetta Miller and Robert LeRoy Mann learned this year of plans to build a house on a vacant lot on Cedarhurst Road in Finksburg, they wondered about the old family burial plot that used to be on the site. Miller, who lives next to the property, recalled seeing two markers by her fence about 10 years ago. Mann, a former neighbor, also recalled seeing gravestones there decades ago. Calls by Miller and Mann to a member of the local historical society prompted an investigation by the Carroll County state's attorney's office into what happened to the cemetery - whether anyone illegally moved tombstones or remains.

MONTPELIER, Va. - James Madison, the fourth president of the United States, never liked the limelight. He was a quiet man who loved books more than crowds, a man with a soft voice and a modest signature, one of the smallest on the U.S. Constitution. His home, Montpelier, was always his beloved refuge. When Madison became president in 1809, he left his estate in the rolling hills of Virginia's Piedmont reluctantly. Today's visitors to the historic home can see why. The house is as grand as ever, and along with its lovely gardens and surrounding forest, it is becoming more and more popular as a museum.

Tucked between an asphalt plant and a construction company on Guilford Road in Howard County is the burial site of Kings. They are the Kings who married into the Whites, one of the oldest - and, as surprised county officials now know, proudest - families in all of Maryland. From far and wide, descendants of the Whites and Kings swarmed the county this week - not for a wedding, not for a funeral, but to protect the honor of their family. Their common foe: a road project. As part of a planned widening of Guilford Road between Interstate 95 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, county officials have tentatively decided to cut about 30 feet into an open lot across from the Dorsey Run Business Center.
