Charles BELL, 1779 MD > VA
Posted by: Jim Smith Date: September 04, 2000 at 08:01:48
  of 1796

Charles BELL of Washington Co, MD, purchased land in 1779 in Loudoun Co, VA, "for the term of one whole year paying therefore one Pepper Corn upon the Feast of St Michael the Arch Angel if demanded ..."
Two questions: Does anyone know Charles BELL? And can someone tell me more about this custom of securing land (which preceded a normal sale)?

Thanks all.

Jim
