Assigning my 1789 Patent
This image is from the 1789 survey done for John Demoss in Harford County, Maryland, for a tract of land called Demoss' Garden. The image in this blog post is John's transfer of that property to his son John Demoss Jr, done between the 22 June 1789 survey and the 16 July 1802 patent.
Nice little transfer here that indicates the father-son relationship. There are two tracts of Harford County land transferred from John Sr. to John Jr. I'm deciding which one will make a better Casefile Clues article.
