    Notes:

    Land:
    From the Mrs. Guiles Flowers notes on Cumberland Davidsons:

    Deeds for both Patrick Davidson and William Davidson are shown dated July 6th 1750  recorded July 2nd 1862 - by Thomas Cookson Surveyor for the Penns, then resident  (Cookson) in Lancaster. The deeds show land granted to these two Davidsons "on Letort  Spring" each paiding 80 pounds for his land grant. Reference to Vol 1, page 111 (Deeds)  Cookson Bys land on Letort Spring for the Proprietors as their Agent and this land is  now part of Carlisle.

    Cookson was the man who secured the land for the County town of Carlisle - but no mention of course was made of the transaction as for the county town, so that real estate values might not rise. LSF.
