I still need help with the above problem-- please respond if you have any Dewees OR Davis in Northumberland Co, PA!!

Anybody with ancestors in Northumberland Co, Pennsylvania? I need your feedback, please!

In Northumberland County, two possible families are suspect:

#s 12 & 14, Northumberland Co. PA Land “Lotto,” page 325
L#, Warrentee, Descriptions, Quantity, Date Warrent, Date Return, Acres ret, Patentee name:

42, Dewees, William, Survey, 520, 17 March 1785, 24 July 1794, 568.75, James Strawbridge
267, Davis, John, Survey, 400, 17 March 1785, 19 May 1788, 346.12, Lawrence Keene

Unfortunately, there is no indication that either family fits-- they're just the most likely to fit Maria Knethta's birth family.
