States: Pennsylvania: Chester
An interactive county formation map is available at the bottom of the page of the above url. The reference to purchasing 500 acres in Montgomery county, doesn't jive, unless you are stating it was purchased in the current Montgomery county. Prior to 1778 (if I remember the map properly- could off a bit) Montgomery County was part of Philadelphia County, and never overlaid Chester County.
Nonetheless, the map is very helpful in determining the past geography to the current.
