Information on Nathaniel Cartmell
From "Pioneers of Old Frederick Country, Virginia", by Cecil O'dell, pg. 304:
David Glass purchased 114 acres from Lord Fairfax on 30 June 1761. This land, located adjacent to the 250-acre tract which he had received from his father Samuel and adjacent west of his brother Robert's 544-acre tract, is on the north side of Opequon Creek. (Tract 168, Map 8) David and his wife Susannah sold 1 1/4 acres of the 250-acre tract "where he now lives" to Nathaniel Cartmell for 20 shillings on 4 November 1760.
