Apologies for not thanking you sooner for the several tips you provided. My eamil serlvlice has been soen for several months. I could receive but could not send. Crazy!
I am having great diffilculty with my eyes and I guess that is why I asked about a "beck" of land. You rreplied with ilnfo on a "neck" and that response certqaily sounds reasonable.
I also have poured thru the references to Elk Neck some of whihc I had seen iln the past. I am trying to understand the Mauldin ancestry and it is very confusing to me. Researchers differ substantially and I don't have the ability to do research using good sources.
I found another measure of distance in one of the referenced artilcles. It is a "perech." Captain mauldin in his will mentions distances such as "four perches." I have no idea as to the lenght of a perch, but it must be quite long, maybe a mile or more. Have you come across that?
Again, thanks for your help and I am soory I am so late in thanking you.
