I must have been reading notes concerning the DeLashmutt family information from the book Pioneers of Old Monocacy. Today, I looked at the book itself and noticed I had made an error. On page 61 it is stated that John Nelson, Sr. (son of Arthur, Sr.) had a tract of land "Sweed's Folly" patented on Nov 26, 1734. (This was on a Dry Branch which flows into the Potomac River north of present-day Point of Rocks.) In 1743 Nelson and his wife Jane divided the parcel's 200 acres equally between their sons-in-law Elias Delashmutt, husband of elizabeth Nelson, and John Delashmutt, husband of Sarah Nelson. John Nelson called them his beloved sons." This book also states that Rachaels married name was Lemaster (not Semaster). Sorry for the bad information.
