In Reply to: Patent List for Octorara Hundred, Cecil County by Edgar Bralley of 924

Dear Edgar,

You and I are plowing the same field!

I'm tracking the Fulton family who patented several of the Octorora Hundred tracts and lived adjacent to the Ewing, Arbuckle, Porter, Laughlin, Graham, properties.

As for the Fultons ... some stayed in the area, some went west to Ohio, some went south to North Carolina, and I suspect some settled on the New River, Montgomery (present Grayson) Co, VA.

Sound familiar?

Any chance you recognize this Bralley/Braley/Brawley?

Hugh Braley (d 1781) at Rowan Co, NC.
..Joseph and Sarah (-?-) Braley
....Joseph G. Brawley, b 1817 at Guilford Co, NC
....m 1 Feb 1847 at Guilford Co, NC
....Barbary Foulton

Joseph G. and Barbara (Fulton) Brawley moved to Marion Co, IL, where Joseph died on 1 Nov 1841. Widow Barbara (Fulton) Brawley m2, Nathan Adams at Marion Co. IL. Deborah Brawley, sister of Joseph, m William Wooters at Marion Co. IL.

Oh, before I forget, back in Cecil Co, MD -- in 1762 Samuel Fulton (who d 1804 in Ohio) owned land adjacent to James Arbuckle and in 1773 Samuel Fulton sold 50 acres of "Teague's Choice" to William Arbuckle.
