Maryland LIne, Maryland

J is for Jones:  Jones is the fifth most common family name in the United States. Over the past century, Richard was the seventh most common name given to boys. Jones derives from "son of John," and Richard derives from "brave ruler." This Richard may not have been a brave ruler, but it looks like he was a brave firefighter!
