What’s the chances! My great-great-grandfather was Josiah Diggs. I am using my great-grandfather’s name on this account Dr James Hilburn, He was part of the movie theater also. Which of Josiah’s children are you both related to?

Hello CoastNut we have to be family then because Josiah Diggs would have been my fourth generation grandfather. He’s my grandfathers great grandfather I live in Baltimore and my Grandad has been enlightening me on my elders I was looking into this because my son has to complete a paper for black history month and I’m researching to see what info I can find for him to actually talk about someone who is related to him

My great grandfather, Josiah Diggs, was one of the owners and operators of this establishment. I have a few fond memories from my childhood visits to Baltimore and across town with my granddad to explore behind the scenes, watch a movie and gobble free popcorn.
