Dear Carolyn,

I'm a FULTON hunter and am familiar with the Graham tract known as "Pembroke" which is adjacent to the tract "Resurvey of Amory's Satisfaction" owned by Alexander Fulton (d 1762) of Cecil Co, MD.

The 60 acre MD tract originally patented to George Emmory, "Amory's Satisfaction" was resurveyed in 1756 at Alexander Fulton's request, probably in anticipation of the upcoming Mason/Dixon survey. The final MD survey included 47 acres surrounding Amory's Satisfaction that Fulton obtained by a Pennsylvania warrant.
