Church records may include births, christenings, marriages, deaths and burials. Be sure you have the correct church/religious denomination. If you're not sure, search the churches closest to home first and then broaden your search in ever-widening circles.
Check for cemetery records with the church, sexton and funeral directors. Visit the cemetery and take a picture of the tombstone. Check the obituaries in that time frame.
In Maryland, records for many churches are available at the Maryland State Archives. Records for closed churches are often at central archive facilities for some major religious denominations. You can find links to some of those archives' Web sites under "Religious Organizations" in the Links section of this MGS Web site.
