  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 First link is to Warrant Register, second link, if any, is to most likely person article.
  2. The survey map for this property shows it bounded by a distinctive ox-bow in Conedagwanet Creek. While there are several oxbows in this stream, all are located near the lower end of the creek in what was then E. Pennsboro township. The shape of the in the survey diagram matches a specific oxbow in the SW corner of the intersection of US 81 and US 581, and a mile west of Hogestown, and immediately south of Good Hope Mill
  3. the survey record shows this property was based on a warrant dated "___ of ___ 1735" and sureyed "December the 4th 1735". However, at the foot of the survey record is the notation "warrant to accept this dated 17 Oct 1744." This may indicate a defect in the original warrant of 1735, but the documentation still places the date of the original survey as 1735.
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 patent record says "John Smith"
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 Patent record says "Nicholas Spring"
