Did you know that at least two Maryland homesteads settled by Gaithers are on the National Register of Historic places? “Abington” was patented 365 years ago, in 1649, by John Gaither and Robert Proctor after arriving in Maryland, from Virginia. It is located in Anne Arundel County and was listed on the National Register in 1984.
“Clover Hill”, the home of Ephraim Gaither, in Montgomery County, dates to 1857 in its present form, but according to the National Register likely originated as a log cabin in the mid-18th century.
