Howdy, Little I know, is that it was established as a Quaker community and layed out in what then was believed to be PA. However, after the state boundary line was finally settled between Penn and Lord Baltimore, most of the settlement ended up in Maryland's northern part of Cecil County. Your best bet for information is to contact the Cecil County Historical Society for maps, location, lists of owners. They have a very nice library and helpful folks. Mike Dixon is the resident historian. There is a website http://cchistory.org/
If your still stuck, I have some further information. Good luck...Greg
