person:Christopher Huston (2) aquired 198 acres by warrant in 1752 in East Pennsboro. Adjacent neighbors (when the land was surveyed) were

James Waugh
Samuel Calhoun

A check of Waugh and Calhoun did not show an obvious match with Christopher's land though a warrant for Waugh dated 1752 was found, showing some geographic detail. Unfortunately, boundaries did not match up well with Houston's Property. However, the following item is of interest
