  1. This parcel was not surveyed until 1797. The warrant record indicates no patent was issued. The survey map shows James Hother's land to the NW of this parcel. There are several transactions in the 1760's and later indicating that Hother or his heirs added to his original track, picking up in "fragments of broken land" adjacent to his original parcel. John Walkers paracel appears to be included among those fragments. The property descriptions for Hother's land, place it in the northeast portion of E. Nottingham Township, on the West Branch of the Elk River. Based on this, a candidate location for John Walkers property is shown here: on Acme Mapper.
