Beaver Creek, Maryland
I am grateful to Mr. Perini for posting extensive documentation on the property on his Doub's Mill website. It provided me information on my ancestors and directions to the property.
In what was to become Washington County, on April 1, 1775, the brothers Henry and Christian Newcomer paid 5000 pounds for the three tracts of land totaling 692 acres from Michael Cyster (FCLR, 1775) that Cyster had acquired from John Stull Jr. in 1772... The Beaver Creek area was now in the possession of the Newcomers... A year later, July 2, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia PA and signaled the beginning of the revolutionary war with England.
