Williams Family sells Cecil Co. land in 1736/37

In 1736/37 o.s., Providence Williams of Orange Co, VA, sold several tracts of land in Cecil Co, MD. The tracts included "High Park" (adj to Teague's Endeavor), "Emery's Choice" (adj to Moulton's Marsh), and "Pembrook."

Providence Williams was acting on behalf of (1) Providence Williams and wife Sarah, (2) Joseph Williams and wife Lidia, and (3) Ann Poulson. Witnesses to the sale included: Nathaniel Ewing, Isaac Saunders, Hugh Lawson, John Graham, David Patterson, and David Denny.

If you recognize this Williams family or any of the witnesses, I'd like to exchange research notes. You may hold the key to the ancestry of the Fultons who settled here and purchased "High Park", "Emmory's Satisfaction", and "Pembrook."
