John Wilkes Booth’s Family on North Exeter Street

We came across a great find in the 1850 U.S. Census. John Wilkes Booth’s famous acting family lived in Baltimore, splitting time there with their home in Bel Air. John’s father Junius, was a noted actor (listed below as a trajedian) from England who had an extramarital affair with Mary Ann Holmes. Click on the image for greater detail.
