Survey records provide a visual record of our ancestor's earliest land holdings. Bob and Donna Jean Ford have generously shared their abstract of Washington Co. Survey Book 2 (1797- ) which includes the name of the person for whom the survey was made, associated waterways, acreage, etc. See the Grant, Deed and Survey page. If you would like a copy of the survey for a particular entry (as in the image at right), send me an email.
These last 6 months I have had the pleasure of corresponding with Bob Gardner who is an expert on the family of Jeremiah Gardner and Margaret (Edmiston) Gardner of Washington County. Bob has kindly shared years of research. To see the names added thus far, start with the Gardner chart (via the Charts link above).
On a sadder note, this update brings an addition to the Fallen Leaves page. Many of you enjoyed the photos and information on the Clark homes on the Old Stage Rd. (Rt. 11) that I posted early last year. The photos and much of the history for that page was shared by Jim Faris. Jim passed away in late June; I miss his enthusiastic and thoughtful emails.
Please see the Change Log for additional new information - if you are a descendant of Thomas Montgomery (especially through the line of his daughter Margaret Montgomery Beaty) be sure to read the Chancery case summary linked to his page.
