AN EXPLANATION OF THE 

MAP OF THE CITY AND LIBERTIES 

(SEE VOLUME FOUR.) 

OF PHILADELPHIA. 



[This Map, with the "Explanation," -was published in 1774^ 
and it has been thought proper to reprint the same in connec- 
tion with other papers and documents relating to the Land 
Department.] 



THE AUTHOR TO THE SUBSCRIBERS. 



GENTLEMEN, 

It was not altogether for the little benefit which may arise to 
myself, that induced me to publish this work, as it is well 
known it would have been more beneficial to myself and 
family not to have done it; but through the persuasion of many 
respectable gentlemen of this province, and your generously 
subscribing for the encouragement thereof; and my being fully 
convinced of the benefit it would be to the public in general, 
and particularly to the descendants of those whose forefathers 
became purchasers of lands in the province of Pennsylvania; 
these were the reasons, save a desire I had to give the public 
a full description of the city and liberties, and shew in what 
right the city lots and liberty lands are held. 

And notwithstanding the insinuations of some of the Proprie- 
tary officers are, that the intention of this work is to cause 
confusion and contention among the people of this province, 
&c., I can with truth declare, that I know but few whos- 
property it affects; and that was occasioned when people 
applied for their rights; the surveyor laying them on lands 
long since surveyed and patented to others, in order (as I 
apprehend) for the better securing to themselves the lands 
formerly reserved for the purchasers not then come over. 
Unless "the heirs of those who became purchasers of land iu 
this province, should be so unreasonable as to apply for and 
recover the estates purchased and paid for by their forefathers 
of the proprietaries:— This indeed may, perhaps, effect such 
who have heretofore endeavored to keep those purchases con- 
cealed. 

Notwithstanding I have it not in my power to return thanks 
to the Survevor-General, &c., for their kind assistance in this 
work as in such cases hath been customary; yet I think it 
consists of as much truth as any thing of the kind that hath 

heretofore been published. And should you be of the same 

opinion when vou come to examine it. and find it to answer 
vcur expectations, so as to meet with your approbation an.l 
further encouragement; it then answers the end intended. 
Although there is much more published than what was first 



228 AN EXPLANATION OF THE 

proposed, or by me intended; yet should any gentleman think 
that it ought to be augmented, and incline to improve and 
continue the same; may be furnished with ample materials, 
by applying to. 

Gentlemen, 

Your most obedient. 

Humble servant, 

JOHN REED.

AN ABSTRACT OF THE CONCESSIONS OF MR. PENN 



To the first adventurers and purchasers in Pennsylvania; 
which the foregoing release recites. 

By the concessions, dated July 11, 1681, it was agreed by 
William Penn, proprietor and governor of the province of 
Pennsylvania, and the first purchasers in the same province, 
viz: 

"That a certain quantity of land or ground plat, shall be 
"laid out for a large town or city, in the most convenient 
"place upon the river for health and navigation; and every 
"purchaser and adventurer shall, by lot, have so much land 
"therein as will answer to the proportion which he hath bought 
"or taken up. And that the proportion of lands that shall be 
"laid out in the first great town or city, for every purchaser, 
"shall be after the proportion of ten acres for every hundred 
"acres purchased, if the place will allow it." 



AN ABSTRACT OF MR. PENN'S ORDER TO HIS 
COMMISSIONERS. 

By a special order from the proprietor, dated October 14. 
1681, he ordered his commissioners "to lay out ten thousand 
"acres for a town; in which every purchaser or purchasers 
"of five thousand acres, shall have one hundred acres." And 
further ordered, " that this town shall be laid out for the 
"present purchasers." 

Note, the commissioners appointed were William Crispin. 
William Hage, John Bezer, and Nathaniel Allen: William Cris- 
pin was appointed surveyor-general, as well as commissioner: 
but died before his arrival. Thomas Holme was appointed 
in his place; and arrived in Pennsylvania the latter end of 
June 1682: and proceeded according to order, with the rest 
of the commissioners, to lay out a quantity of land for the 
aforesaid great town; which town includes both the city and 
liberties of Philadelphia.* And in October fcUowing. the 
proprietor arrived, when the aforesaid great town was di- 
vided in two parts, and was then called the city and liberties 
of Philadelphia: and is so called to this present time: and that 
the city originally extended over Schuylkill, as you see laid 
down in the plan, marked with the letters A. B. doth evidently 

appear by the f ollowing returns of surveys, viz: 

~^Vhi.•l^ doth ai.).e.ir by Thomas Holm -s draupht of il... same.

"Philip England's return, dated the 7th of the 3d month, 
"1685, for a lot on the west side of Schuylkill, iu the city of 
"Philadelp-hia." 

"Edward Pritchard's return for land in the liberties, on the 
"west side of Schuylkill, and joining the city, &c." 

"John Bristow's return for ditto, runs S. 18 degrees "W. 15 ps. 
"which lines divide this land from the city of Philadelphia, 
"and on the west side of Schuylkill." 

Many other proofs might be given to shew, that Philadelphia 
did run over Schuylkill; as the survey of the ferry lots, the 
burying-ground, .fee. But as it is a matter of no consequence 
at this time, the charter only extending from river to river, 
and the lots appurtenant to the original purchasers, are 
marked and numbered as you see laid down in the plan, which 
extends from Delaware to Schuylkill Front Streets, being 
marked in the map with the letters A. C. This plan was, 
by order of the proprietor, sent to Philip Ford, his agent in 
London, to be published, that every purchaser might see the 
lot appurtenant to their purchase; which doth evidently ap- 
pear. 



ABSTRACT OF MR. PENN'S LETTER TO THE FREE 
SOCIETY OF TRADERS IN LONDON. 

I. By a letter from the proprietor, dated at Philadelphia. 
August 16. 1683, to the free society of traders: he says, 

"Philadelphia is at last laid out; to the great content of 
"those here, that are any ways interested therein. Tlie situa- 
"tion is a neck of land, and lieth between two navigable rivers, 
"Delaware and Schuylkill; whereby it hath two fronts upon 
"the water, each a mile, and two from river to river. I say 
"little of the town itself, because a platform will be shewn you 
"by my agent; in which those who are purchasers of me, will 
"find their names and interests, &c." 



THOMAS HOLME'S DESCRIPTION OF THE CITY OF 
PHILADELPHIA. 

II. By the following short description of the situation and 
extent of the city of Philadelphia, and the platform thereof, 
by Thomas Holme, surveyor-general; where he says. 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. 30G 

"The city of Philadelphia now extends in length, from river 
"to. river, two miles, and in breadth near a mile And the 
"governor, as a further manifestation of his kindness to the 
"purchasers, hath freely given them their respective lots in 
"the city, without defalcation of any of their quantities of 
'purchased lands. And it is now placed and modelled between 
"two navigable rivers, upon a neck of land. And that ships 
"may ride in a good anchorage, in both rivers, in six or eight 
"fathom water, close to the city: and the land of the city level. 
"dry and wholesome. Such a situation scarce to be par- 
"alleled." 

"The model of the ciiy appears by a small draught thereof 
"now made; and may hereafter, when time permits, be aug- 
"mented. And because there is not room to express the pur- 
"chasers names in the draught, I have therefore drawn direc- 
"tions of reference, by way of numbers, whereby may be 
"known each man's lot and place in the city." 

"The city is now so ordered, by the governor's care and 
"prudence, that it hath a front to each river; one half at Dela- 
"ware, the other half at Schuylkill. And though all this can- 
"not make way for small purchasers to be in the fronts, yet 
"they are placed in the next streets contiguous to each front, 
"viz: All purchasers of a thousand acres and upwards, have 
"the Fronts and High Streets; and to every five thousand 
"acres purchase, about an acre in the front; and the smaller 
'•purchasers, about half an acre in the backward streets." 

"The city, as the model shews, consists of a large Front- 
"Street to each river, and a High-Street near the middle, from 
"river to river, of one hundred feet broad; and a Broad-Street 
"in the middle of the city, from side to side, of the like breadth. 
"In the center of the city is a square of ten acres, at each 
"angle, to build houses for public affairs. There is also, in 
"each quarter of the city, a square of eight acres, to be for 
"the like uses as Jloorfields in London; and eight streets, 
"besides the said High-Street, that run from river to river, or 
"front to front; and twenty streets, besides the Broad-Street. 
"that runs cross the city, from side to side. All these streets, 
"are fifty feet broad."

306 AN EXPLANATION OF THE 

ABSTRACT OF A LETTER FROM PHILIP FORD, IN LON- 
DON, TO THOMAS HOLME, IN PHILADELPHIA, CON- 
CERNING THE MAP OF THE CITY. 

Ill By a letter from Philip Ford, agent of the proprietor, in 
London, to Thomas Holme, surveyor-general of Pennsylvania 
residing in Philadelphia. Dated, London, the 21st of the 1st 
month, 1684-5. He says, 

"As for the map of the city, it was needful it should be 
"printed;* it will do us a kindness, as we were at a loss for 
"want of something to shew the people. I would fain know 
"how many houses are in Philadelphia; and if the city goes on 

' Tr B^ "the plan or platform of the city itself, which was 
produced in evidence at the supreme court, in Philadelphia, 
October 13 1773, and upon the solemn affirmation of John 
Lukens, esq: the present surveyor-general, ^^^f J^^^./^^f ;;"^' 
that he never saw any other plan of the city of Philadelphia 
but that plan then produced; which is here described: and that 
it was what he always did observe and follow (or words to 

that effect ) 

V By the tenor of every warrant for the lots in the city of 
Philadelphia, appurtenant to the original purchasers, the 
words following are expressed: • 

"At the request of A. B. purchaser, that I would grant him 
"his lot or lots . in the city of Philadelphia, proportionable to 
"his purchase of acres." 

The distances of the streets from each other are as follows,

nor Schuylkill Front Streets was ascertained when the plan 
was first made. And authough they appear to run parallel 
with tho other streets in the plan, yet it is certain they run 
the courses of the rivers, both on Schuylkill and Delaware; 
which doth appear by the following returns of surveys:

"feet; then N. 72 W. by a vacant lot 36-5 feet: then to the place 
"of beginning by the Front-Street." 

The readers will observe that the foregoing surveys lie be- 
tween Mulberry and Sassafras Streets, where Schuylkill bears 
to the east on the city; which occasion those lots not to have 
the same distance between Front and Second Streets, as the 
other lots; nor equal sides, by Front-Street running the courses 
of the river. 

*FRANCIS and GEORGE RODGERS's survey for their front 
lot, runs 396 feet from Schuylkill Front-Street on High-Street 
to Second-Street; and both sides equal. 

THOMAS RUDYARD's survey near Spruce-Street, where 
Schuylkill bears to the west, is as follows, viz; 

. "Surveyed and laid out the 10th of the 6th month, 16S;J.

THOMAS RUDYARD had another lot surveyed on Dela- 
ware, viz: 

"By virtue of a warrant from the proprietary and governor, 
"bearing date the 6th instant, (directed to me) I hereby certify 
"into his Secretary's Office, that I have caused to be surveyed 
"and set out, the 23d instant, unto Thomas Rudyard, pur- 
"chaser, his lot in the city of Philadelphia, containing in 
"breadth 51 feet, and in length 426 feet; bounded northward 
"with Vine-Street, formerly called Valley-Street, eastward with 
"Delaware Front-Street, southward with a vacant lot, west- 
"ward with the Second-Street from Delaware: and is accord- 
"ingly entered and recorded in my office in Philadelphia, this 
"25th of the 4th month, 1684. 

"THOMAS HOLME. Surveyor-General." 

Note, That the foregoing surveys were made by Thomas 
Holme: and he that made the plan of the city, must certainly 
have known where the streets run; and would never have 
made those surveys, had not Schuylkill Front-Street run the 
courses of the river, &c. 

Hence it appears, that the city was laid out as has been here- 
tofore described; and that the Front Streets on Schuylkill 
and Delaware run the courses of the rivers. 

And it is declared in the charter, that the city should for 
ever continue as it was then laid out, &c. 



AN ABSTRACT OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF 
PHILADELPHIA. 

"WILLIAM PENN, proprietary and governor of the province 
'of Pennsylvania, &C. To all to whom these presents shall 
'come, sends gi-eeting. Know ye, that at the humble request 
'of the inhabitants and settlers of this town of Philadelphia, 
'being some of the first adventurers and purchasers within 
'this province, for their encouragement, and for the more 
'immediate and entire government of the said town, and better 
'regulation of trade therein, I have, by virtue of the king's 



510 AX EXPLANATION OF THE 

'letters patent, under the great seal of England, erected the 
"said town into a borough; and by these presents do erect the 
'said town and borough of Philadelphia into a city: which said 
'city shall extend the limits and bounds, as it is laid out be- 
'tween Delaware and Schuylkill." 

"And I do, for me, my heirs and assigns, grant and ordain, 
'that the* streets of the said city shall for ever continue as 
'they are now laid out and regulated: and that the end of each 
'street, extending into the river, shall be and continue free 
'for the use and service of the said city and inhabitants 
'thereof; who may improve the same for the best advantage 
'of the city: and build wharfs so far out into the river there^ 
'as the mayor, aldermen, and common-council, herein after 
"mentioned, shall see meet." 



THE REASONS WHY THE PLAN OF THE CITY WAS 
ALTERED BY BENJ. EASTBURN, S. G. 

The streets of the city continued as they were then laid out, 
until Benjamin Eastburn was appointed surveyor general; 
when a subsequent plan was made by him, marl^ed A. D. in 
the map. By what authority that plan was made I know not; 
but the design in making of it is easily understood: as it not 
only takes 132 feet off the square on the west sides of Broad- 
Street, moving all the streets on Schuylkill front that distance 
to the eastward; but leaves out one whole square on the front 
of Schuylkill, from Cedar to Vine-Streets, making Front-Street 
D parallel with the other streets, at the distance of 528 feet on 
High-Street; (east of the real Front-Street) as you may see laid 
down in the plan: whereby the proprietors endeavoring to 
take back (for their own use) all the land lying between the 
street D and Schuylkill, then laying out the first purchasers 
lots on the east side of that street D which they call Front- 
Street, and observing the numbers regular as they are marked 
down in Thomas Holme's plan; this, of course, pushes the lots 
so far to the eastward, that they fall on the publick squares. 
So that the public is not only deprived of the front on Schuyl- 
kill, but likewise those squares. 



*It is out of the power of any person whatsoever to produce 
any other model, plan, or platform, of the city of Philadelphia, 
at the time the charter was granted, than what was made by 
Thomas Holme. 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. "H 

Having now done with the city, (for this time) I propose 
taking a view of the other part of this great town, called the 
liberties.

"Griffith Jones, five hundred acres of land apiece; unto Bar- 
"rabas Wilcox, six hundred acres; unto John Barns and 
"Thomas Bowman, five hundred acres apiece; unto Thomas 
"Ducket, John Goodson and John Songhurst, three hundred 
"apiece; unto Richard Townsend, one hundred and fifty acres; 
"all together in a place not already taken up, according 
"to the method of townships appointed by the governor." 

"And whereas the governor hath ordered Richaid Noble to 
"survey and surround a tract of land, adjoining the city of 
"Philadelphia, for the good and benefit of the firsL purchasers, 
"whereof a return is not made unto me; and so the extreme 
"parts or bounds not yet ascertained. And whereas I have

"purchasers are already seated and placed; and will extend 
"above one township from the bounds of the Swedes' lands;

312 AX EXPLANATION OF THE 

The liberties were accordingly surveyed tor the good and 
benefit of the first purchasers; and are bounded as follows, viz: 
Beginning on Vine-Street, then up Delaware river to the 
mouth of Coach-que-naw-que; (which creek divides this from 
Jurian Hartfielder's land) then up the same, by the several 
courses, to a corner of the aforesaid land; then N. by W. by 
the same, 112 perches, to a white oaJi; then N. E. by the same, 
1S4 perches, to a corner white oak standing by the S. W. side 
of Cohocksink; then down the same, on the several courses, 
till it intersects the line of Shackamexunk, in the fork of 
Cohocksink; then up the N. W. branch of said creek, to a cor- 
ner white oak marked A, it being a corner of Shacamaxin and 
John Goodson's land; then E. N. E. by said land to B, a corner 
white oak. standing by a run; then down the run to C, a 
corner maple of the said land; then E. N. E. by the said land 
and Peter Cock's to D, a corner white oak, stajiding by Quis- 
slnomink: then up the same to E, standing by the mouth of 
Tackoney; then up Wiggohocking, on the several courses, to 
F, a white oak; it being a corner of Griffith Jones and John 
Moon's land; (note, this creek is the line that divides Griffith 
Jones's land in Bristol township, from the Philadelphia lib- 
erties) thenW. by N. to G, a corner Spanish oak, it being 
a corner of Germantown and Bristol township: then N. E. 
by E. to H, a corner marked white oak, it being another 
corner of Germantown township; then N. W. by N. 
to I, a marked white oak, standing in Germantown line, and a 
corner of Robert Turner's land; then W. S. W. to K, a marked 
Spanish oak, standing by Schuylkill, another corner of Rob- 
ert Turner's land; (these are the courses of the liberties on 
the east sides of Schuylkill.) Beginning now at L, a corner 
hickory, standing by th« mouth of a small run, on the west 
side of Schuylkill; then W. S. W. to M, a corner of Mill creek, 
alias Cobb's creek; then down the same, on the sev- 
eral courses, to N, a Spanish oak, standing by a 
small run; then north to O, a marked white oak; then east 
to P; then south to Q; then east to R; (note, the last five letters 
are courses of Thomas Paschall's land) then S. E. to S, a cornei- 
standing by Schuylkill; then up the same, on the several 
courses, to the city of Philadelphia; then N. 18 degrees E. to 
the corner of Vine-Street; then S. 72 degrees E. by Vine-Street 
to the place of beginning, containing 15,236 acres, 1 quarter, 
20 perches, viz:

Acres, q. ps. 
The liberties contain on the east side of Schuyl- 
kill 9,161 3 S 

On the west side of ditto, 7,074 2 IT 

The whole contents of the liberties 1C,23G 1 20 

The Swedes held within these bounds 2,148 

Remain for the purchasers 14,0SS 1 20 

The purchasers, whose deeds of lease and release 

recites the concessions, amount to 709,535 

Their proportions, agreeable to the concessions 

at 20 acres per 1,000, are 14,190 3 

Which makes 102 acres 1 quarter and 20 perches more than 
what there was land, to be divided amongst them after the 
Swedes' land was deducted. 

The proprietor finding that the liberties contained no more 
than what was granted to the purchasers, and had made no 
reserve of any to himself, falls on the following scheme, viz: 
That every purchaser of 5,000 acres, should have but 80 acres 
on the east side of Schuylkill; that is to say, out of every 100 
acres he reserved 20 acres for himself: and gave his orders 
to the surveyor accordingly. 

Observe the two following notes from Thomas Holme, one to 
the governor, the other to Philip Lemain concerning Poor- 
Island: 
"Governor," 

"DENNIS ROCHFORD's warrant mentions 100 acres as, in, 
"and for his liberty lot of 5.000 acres; and thou hast ordered 
"me to allow no more than 80 acres to any whosoever. Please 
"to afford me thy positive pleasure; for that he is not willing 
"to accept of less than 100 acres." 

"T. HOLME." 

POOR-ISLAND. 

"If this land should be adjudged to Neilson, and to remain 
"in the same shape and figure, it will much hinder the laying 
"out the squares of 80 acres to 5,000 acres purchased. Ph. 
"L." 

"This laud is taken into the liberties, as land not seated 
"according to order and rule, as my deputy-surveyor informs 
"me; and therefore the governor may please to let us have the 
"thing examined. This man has his seat of land at Shacka 

"mexunk. 

"T. HOLME." 

"Eighth day of the 9th month, 1683." 



Ji4 AN EXPLANATION OF THE 

But before these orders were given by the governor, he had 
granted warrants for 700 acres, after the rate of 100 acres to a 
5,000 acres purchase, viz: To the society 400 acres, to Nicholas 
Moore 200 acres, to Dennis Rochford 100 acres; therefore when 
the liberties come to be properly stated, they stand thus: 

Acres, q. ps. 
The liberties on the east side of Schuylkill 

amount to 9,161 3 3 

The Swedes held land on the east side (deducted) 642 

Remains 8,519 3 3 

Warrants granted at 20 acres per 1,000 acres (de- 
ducted) 700 

Remains, 7,819 3 3 

Out of which the proprietaries-sold 3,836 3 

There remains to be divided amongst the pur- 
chasers, at 80 acres to every 5,000 acres pur- 
chased, 3,983 3 

The liberties on the west side of Schuylkill 
amount to 7,074 2 17 

Brought from the east side of Schuylkill (added), 700 

Total, 7,774 2 17 

The Swedes' land on the west side of Schuylkill 

(deducted), 1,506 

Remains 6,268 2 17 

Out of which the proprietaries sold (deducted).. 2,636 2 

There remains to be divided amongst the pur- 
chasers, at 100 acres to every 5,000 acres pur- 
chased, 3,632 17 

The 3,983 acres 3 quarters to be divided amongst 
the purchasers, at the proportion of 80 acres 
for every 5,000 acres, satisfies them to the 
amount of 248,984 1 

The 3,632 acres 17 perches to be divided amongst 
the purchasers, at the proportion of 100 acres 
for every 5,000 acres, satisfies them to the 
amount of 181,611 3 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. 3ir 

Acres, q. ps. 
The purchasers that remain not yet satisfied, 

amount to 278,939 

The whole amount of acres purchased 709,535 0' 

The proprietaries have sold land, in the liberties, 

to the amount of 6,472 2 

The proportion of liberty land, due on 278.939 

acres, is 5,578 3 

After all the purchasers were satisfied, at the 
proportion of 80 acres on the east side and 100 
acres on the west side of Schuylkill to every 
5.000 acres purchased, there would remain due 

to the proprietors 896 2 

But should the reader incline to think that the proprietors 
would not be so ungenerous as to sell lands a second time, 
and therefore infer that my calculations are wrong.— Now 
as they have the materials, I leave them to calculate the same, 
while I procure vouchers to prove the lines of the liberties.

At the request of many of the subscribers that I would ex-

it relates to property) which they agreed to nem con. and 
was entered in their minutes the 26th of the 6th month. 1704. 
signed by the speaker, and sent to the proprietor himself. 
Among other things, they say, viz: 



31S AN EXPLANATION OF THE 

ABSTRACT OF COMPLAINT ENTERED IN THE MINUTES 
OF THE ASSEMBLY. 

"That we are also left remediless in this; that when we are 
"wronged and oppressed about our civil rights by the pro- 
"prietary, we cannot have justice done us; because the clerk 
"of the court being of his own putting in, refuses to make out 
"any process; and the justices, by and before whom our causes 
"against him should be tried, are of his own appointment; 
"by means whereof, he becomes judge in his own case; which 
"is against natural equity." 

"That although the commissioners of property have power 
"by their commissions to make satisfaction, where people have 
"not their full quantity of land according to their purchase; 
"yet they neglect and delay doing right in that behalf." 

"And at last the office of property and surveyor-general came 
"to be shut up; and thou kept them so while thou sold lands 
"to the value of 2,0001. sterling, and gave thy warrants in 
"England for surveying the said land; and also got great 
"tracts of land laid out or secured for thyself and relations, 
"besides several valuable parcels which should have been 
"laid out for the purchasers, but were reserved by thy sur- 
"veyors, whether for thee or themselves we know not; how- 
"ever, thou appropriated those lands to thyself by the name 
"of concealed lands; whereas, in truth, they were concealed 
"from the purchasers, who were to have their lands laid out 
"contiguous one to another, and no vacancies left between 
"them: and thou wast to have only thy tenth, as it fell, ac- 
"cording to the concessions thou made with the first adven- 
"turers; and if thou took it not up, it was thy own (not their) 
"fault." 

"And under pretence of passing an act for confirming and 
"securing their lands, &c., thou obtained liberty to re-survey 
"all the lands in the province, and to bring the people to 
"terms for the overplus; so that, by this stratagem, the war- 
"rants, surveys, and new patents, cost the people as much, and 
"to some more than the first purchase of their lands; besides 
"their long attendance upon the secretary and surveyors to 
"have their business done: but before thou would pass that 
"act, it must be accompanied with an impost or excise, and 
"a 2.0001. bill besides. 

"That it appears by several petitions now before us, that 
"very great abuses have been and are put upon the inhabit- 
"ants, and extortions used by the secretary, surveyors, and 
"other officers concerned in property as well as courts, which 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. 311' 

"might have been prevented (.or sooner remedied) had thou 
"been pleased to pass the bill proposed by the Assembly, in 
"the year 1701, to regulate fees; as also the want or a surveyor- 
"general, which is a great injury and dissatisfaction to the 
"people; as is likewise the want of an established judicature 
"for trials between thee and the people: for if we exhibit our 
"complaints against thee, or those who represent thee in state 
"or property, they must be determined by or before justices 
"of thy own appointment; by which means, thou become, in 
"a legal sense, judge in thy own cause, &c." 

"We have many other things to represent to thee as griev- 
"ances; as thy unheard of abuses to thy purchasers, &c., in 
"pretending to give them a town, and then by imposing un- 
"conscionable quit-rents, make it worse by tenfold than a 
"purchase would have been: also the abuse about the bank, 
"and want of common to the town; and not only so, but the 
"very land the town stands on, is not cleared of the Swedes' 
"claims." 

"And we hope we need not be more express in charging 
"thee, as thou tenders thy own honour and honesty, or the 
"obligations thou art under to thy friends, and particularly 
"thy first purchasers and adventurers into this province." 

The succeeding Assembly taking the above into considera- 
"tion, says, "Our part is only to lament, (as we really do) that 
"there should be true occasion for such representation." 

And the Assembly, in a remonstrance to the proprietor, 
dated June 10th. 1707, says, "that the Assembly which sat 
"here on the 26th of the 6th month, 1704, agreed upon certain 
"heads or particulars, which, according to the order of that 
"day, were drawn up in a representation, and was signed by 
"the speaker, and sent thee by a passenger in John Guy's 
"brigantine, who was taken into France, from whence the 
"same representation was conveyed to thy hands; whereby 
"thou art put in mind, upon what force the purchasers and 
"first adventurers embarked with thee to plant this colony, 
"and what grants and promises thou made, and the assurance 
"and expectations thou gave them and the rest of the settlers 
"and inhabitants of this province to en]oy the privileges de- 
"rived from thy own grants and concessions, besides the rights 
"and freedoms of England. But how they were disappointed 
"in several respects, appears, in part, by the said represenia- 
"tion, to which we refer; and become supplicants for relief, 
"not only in matters there complained of, which are not yet 
"redressed, but also in things then omitted, as well as what 



o-'O AX EXPLANATION OF THE 

"have been lately transacted, to the grievous oppression of 
"the queen's subjects, and public scandal of this government." 

It is evident when the House came to the foregoing resolu- 
tions, they were assured in their own minds, that the city 
and liberties were secured for the purchasers; as the liberties 
were surveyed for their use, and their lots marked and num- 
bered in the plan of the city; therefore conceived, that there 
was no grievance on that score, save the quit-rents imposed 
on them for the city lots. All the quit-rents reserved by the 
proprietor, are expressed in the deeds of lease and release, and 
are one shilling sterling for every 100 acres; and that rent 
was laid on the country land; those lots are appurtenant to 
the lands purchased, as much as improvements are appurte- 
nant to any land whatsoever; therefore the proprietor has 
no more right to lay rents on those lots, than they have to 
lay rent on a house built on land for which the purchaser paid 
rent before. 

Notwithstanding the proprietor, in his deeds of lease and 
release, did covenant with the purchasers as follows, viz: 
"And the said William Penn, for himself, his heirs and as- 

"signs, doth covenant and agree, to and with the said 

"his heirs and assigns, iu manner and form following, that is 
"to say, That he the said William Penn, his heirs or assigns, 
"shall and will, by and before such time or times, as for that 
"purpose are limited and appointed, in and by such constitu- 
"tions or concessions, made or hereafter to be made as afore- 

"said, clear, acquit and discharge the said acres, 

"so to be set out, as shall be therein appointed, and every part 
"of the same, of and from all manner of tithes and claims of 
"any Indian or native of the said tract or province: And also, 

"that he the said his heirs and assigns, shall and 

"may quietly and peaceably have, hold and enjoy the said 

" acres, and every part thereof, according to the 

"true intent and meaning of these presents, without the lett. 
"disturbance, or interruption of him the said William Penn, 
"his heirs and assigns, or any other person or persons what- 
"soever, claiming or to claim, from, by or under him, them, 
"or any of them. And farther, that he the said William Penn, 
"his heirs and assigns, shall and will, from time to time, make, 
"do, and execute all such further and other act and acts, 
"thing and things, conveyances and assurances whatsoever, 
"as, by, or in pursuance of. or according to the true intent 
"of such concessions or constitutions so made, or to be made 
"as aforesaid, shall be agreed or appointed, for the better 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. 321 

"conveying and assuring the said land, &c." Yet when the 
purchasers came to get patents for their lots, (which they say 
are necessary*) they reserve a quit-rent; which the pur- 
chaser is obliged to pay yearly, besides paying for the war- 
rant, survey, return,, patent, recording, copying, and per- 
haps waiting on the secretary and surveyor-general twenty or 
thirty times before their business be done. 

It is agreed on all hands, that the purchaser having deeds 
of lease and release, reciting the concessions, the lot appur- 
tenant marked in the plan of the city, with warrant and sur- 
vey, is a good title: where then is the occasion of a patent? 
And the purchasers lot being marked as aforesaid, can, by 
bringing ejectment, get a verdict without any other survey: 
which was the case in the lot No. 1, with two very good juries. 
Where is the occasion of a new survey? As every purchaser's 
lot was actually surveyed, and laid down in the plan, by 
Thomas Holme. Neither did the council, on the part of the 
proprietor, attempt to dispute the title to, but the size of, the 
lot No. 1. 

Query, What benefit are patents to the purchasers'' 



THE AUTHOR'S OPINION OF LAND SAID TO HAVE BEEN 
CONCEALED IN THE LIBERTIES; AND THE REASONS 
WHY HE GAVE IT. 

I. THOSE purchasers, who accepted of 80 acres for a 5,000 
acres purchase, are barred from ever claiming any more land 
in the liberties on that score. 

II. THE proprietor had a right to no more land in the lib- 
erties than 896 acres and a half that remained after the pur- 
chasers were satisfied. 

III. EVERY foot more than 896 acres and a half that the 
proprietor sold in the liberties, (in my opinion) were concealed 
from the purchasers. 

My Reasons Are, 

I. BECAUSE Mr. Penn, in the deeds of lease and release 

to the purchasers, did agree, viz: "That he the said William 

"Penn, his heirs and assigns, shall and will, from time to time. 

"make, do and execute all such further and other acts, thing 



'"Necessary, because it is those patents only which secure th. 
proprietor the quit-rent imposed on the purchaser. 

21-C-od Ser. 



322 AN EXPLANATION OF THE 

"and things, conveyances and assurances whatsoever, as, by, 
"or in pursuance of, or according to the true intent of such 
"concessions* or constitutions, so made or to be made, as 
"aforesaid, for the better conveying and assuring of the 
"same, &c." 

II. BECAUSE it was agreed by William Penn, the proprietor, 
in those concessions with the first purchasers, the 11th of 
July, 1681, viz: "That a quantity of land should be laid out 
"for a large town or city; and every purchaser by lot have so 
"much land therein, as will answer to the proportion which he 
"bought: and that the proportion should be 10 acres for every 
"500 acres purchased, if the place would allow it." 

And in pursuance of that agi-eement, the 14th of October 
following, Mr. Penn did, under his own hand and seal, under 
his then "commissioners to lay out the aforesaid great town 
"or city for the purchasers, in which every purchaser of 5,000 
"acres should have 100 acres." 

The commissioners did, in consequence of that order, lay 
out the said town for the first purchasers; as doth appear 
by Thomas Holme's ground-plat of the same. 

III. BECAUSE after the city was laid out, and the lots num- 
bered, Mr. Penn ordered Richard Noblo (Thomas Holme's 
deputy) "to survey and surround the land, joining the city, 
"for the good and benefit of the first purchasers;" without 
makingt reserve of any for himself. 

IV. BECAUSE Mr. Penn, in a particular charge to Thomas 
Holme, ordered "him to reserve a moiety of the land, for the 
"purchasers not then come over." 

•The only reserve Mr. Penn made for himself in those con- 
cessions, were, viz: "In every 100,000 acres, the g-overnor, by 
"lot, reserves 10,000 to himself, what shall lie but in one place." 
Query, Have the proprietors a right to reserve for themselves 
small quantities of land, through the province, particularly the 
islands in all the rivers; some of which, perhaps, do not con- 
tain one acre? 

jSuppose, the proprietor, by his order to Richard Noble, re- 
served land in the liberties for his own use; bad he a right so 
to do? when from his concessions, which the deeds of lease and 
release recite, the purchasers were to have 10 acres to every 
500 acres purchased, if the place would allow it; and in October 
following, ordered the "commissioners to lay out the same for 
"the purchasers: and for every 5,000 acres, the purchaser to 
"have 100 acres." 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. 3J:; 

The liberties contained but* 9S6 acres and a half more than 
what satistied the purchasers; allowing 80 acres to those who 
accepted it on the east side, and 100 on the west side, ot Schtiyl- 
kill. — And the tenor of every warrant, granted to the first 
purchasers for land in the liberties, signed by Mr. Penn, de- 
clares those lands to be appurtenant to their purchase, &c. 

V. BECAUSE I do think there is a wide difference between 
reserving a moiety of land in the liberties for the purchasers 
not then come over in the year 16S2, and designedly concealing 
that moiety from them in 1700; for it is impossible for any 
man to conceal land from himself. 

NOW if the Asembly (at that ime) considered the unlocated 
land in the country, that was reserved and sold by the pro- 
prietors, concealed from the purchasers; is it not reasonable 
to conclude, by the words inserted in the followingt warrants, 
that the land in the liberties, actually surveyed for the good 
and benefit of the first purchasers, was designedly concealed 
from them? 
PENNSYLVANIA. 

"William Penn, absolute proprietary and governor in chief 
of the province of Pennsylvania and counties annexed." 

"Being requested to grant unto John Penington, Daniel 
"Whorley, William Penington, and thyself, one hundred acres 
"of liberty land in right of a purchase of five thousand acres- 
"I do hereby permit and require thee forthwith to survey, or 
"cause to be surveyed for your use and behoof, the aforesai.l 
"number of acres in the liberty lands of Philadelphia, where 
"it has not yet been laid out. nor designedly concealed; an J 
"make return thereof into my secretary's oflice. Given under 
"my hand and seal, at Philadelphia, the 25th of the 5th month, 
"^'^^^■" "WILLIAM PENN." 

"To Edward Penington, surveyor-general of the province of 

"Pennsylvania and territories." 

*Eight hundred and twenty acres of land were granted by the 
proprietors to Swanson and comp, in lieu of their right to the 
land where the city now stands. 

>T jThose warrants were kept a profound secret; it was known 
but to few there were such existing: so secret were they kept, 
that Mr. Lukens. the present surveyor-general, offered to lay 
the author a bett of one hundred pounds there were no such 
warrants: so positive was he. that he offered to have his arm 
cut off, in case such could be produced. After some alterca- 
tions a bett was laid; which Mr. Lukens had the honour to, 
and generQU.<5ly did, pay. 



324 AX EXPLANATION OF THE 

PENNSYLVANIA. 

"William Penn, absolute proprietary and governor m chief 
of the province of Pennsylvania and counties annexed." 

"At the request of Joseph Pike, by his . attorney Thomas 
"Story, that I should grant him to take up one hundred acres 
"of land in the liberties of Philadelphia, in right of five thou- 
"sand acres purchased by Samuel Rowles, of the kingdom or 
"Ireland, and by him sold to the said Joseph Pike. These are 
"to require thee forthwith to survey, or cause to be surveyed 
"to him the said Joseph Pike, the said number of acres of land, 
"within the said liberties, not already taken up, or that has 
"been concealed; and make return thereof into my secretary's 
"office. Given under my hand and seal, at Philadelphia, the 
"25th of the 5th month, 1700." 

"WILLIAM PENN." 
"To Edward Penington. surveyor-general of the province of 

"Pennsylvania and territories." 

IT is necessary to show how those concealed lands were dis- ^ 
posed of, viz: 

PENNSYLVANIA. 

"William Penn, absolute proprietary and governor m chief 
of the province of Pennsylvania and counties annexed." 
"These are to require thee forthwith to survey, or cause to 
"be surveyed, unto David Jones, late of Merionethshire iii 
"Wales, two hundred and fifty acres of my land, on the west 
"side of Schuylkill, within the bounds of the liberties of 
"Philadelphia; to be bounded to the westward with the land 
"seated bv Hugh Roberts, to the northward with William 
"Edwards, to the southward with a line to be run parallel to 
"the line of William Warner, at the distance of twenty perches 
"from the same; and to the westward with my vacant land, 
"reserving fifty acres on the N. E. corner adjacent to Jonathan 
"Wvnne and Hugh Roberts; and make return thereof into my 
"secretary's office. Given under my hand and seal, at Phila- 
delphia, the 19th of the 12th month, 1700-1." 

"WILLIAM PENN." 

"To Edward Penington, surveyor-general of the province of 

"Pennsylvania and territories." 

"Whereas bv warrant, under the proprietor's hand and 
"seal to thee directed, bearing date the 19th of the 12th month, 
"1700-1, thou was ordered to lay out to David Jones two hun- 
"dred and fiftv acres of land, within the bounds of the liberties 
"of Philadelphia, to be bounded to the northward with William 
"Edwards, and southward with a line (at the distance of 



MAP OF PHILADELPHIA. Sr, 

twenty perches) to be run parallel with William Warner's 
'land; which warrant thoii art said to have executed accord- 
'ingly, but hast not made return thereof. Now these are, 
"by the governors special order, to desire thee, in thy return 
'of said tract, to add the said twenty perches left out between 
'the same and "William Warnei's line; so that the said line 
•of "William AYarner's be the southward bounds of the said 
'David's land: for which, this, by the governor's command, 
'will be thy sufficient authority. Dated at Philadelphia, the 
'2d of the 6th month, 1701." 

"JAMES LOGAN, sec." 
'To Edward Penington. surveyor-general." 



AN EXPLANATION OF SOME PARTICULAR PARTS OF 
THE MAP, WHICH PERHAPS THE READER MAY NOT 
UNDERSTAND. 

THE reasons why the purchasers names are spelt different 
ways in the catalogue and surveys, are, because they were so 
spelt in the original, viz: Thomas Bowin in the catalogue, 
ought to be Bourn, and Springgatsbury in the draught should 
be Springettsbury; as also several others of the same kind. 

JOHN TYSACK's 32 acres at the Falls, on the east side of 
Schuylkill, the corners marked a, and William Markham's 
80 acres marked b, is said to have been sold to William 
Palmer, who got a re-survey of the same marked d: James 
Steel and Isaac Norris's surveys marked c, takes in the re- 
maining part of John Tysack, William Markham's, and part 
of Swanson's and comp. though the Swansons recovered that 
part, in their lines, of the heirs of Stell. Rowland Ellis's 17 
acres and 80 perches were moved; and John Songhursfs liberty 
land laid on that place. George Delwyn's survey I have not 
got. 

THOMAS PASCHALL's survey of oUO acres of country lan.l 
on the west side of Schuylkill, runs into Barnaby Wilcox'.^ 
200 acres in the liberties, which occasioned Wilcox to get ;) 
re-survey; and in order to make up his quantity, takes in that 
piece marked C. 



026 a:: explanation of the 

WILLIAM SMITH'S 50 acres extended no further west then 
d, but re-surveyed to f. James Craven had his land surveyed 
■with Richard Pierce and Comp. 

RICHARD MARCH'S 200 acres appurtenant to his purchase 
of 10,000 acres; see the corners marked with a, the re-survey 
with b, and John Simcox with c. 

JOHN BALL'S new survey takes in part of Richard Fewes, 
and the lot marked I B. James Steel got a new survey, which 
takes in part of Francis Smith, Richard Fewes, and the lot 
marked 3: The numbers 1, 4, 6 and 20, I have not got, nor 
A, B, D, E, I, P, Q. F was surveyed to Paul Saunders; and O 
for a burial-ground. 

WHEN you want to find a lot appurtenant to a purchase, 
apply to the alphabet: In the first column of which, is the 
number of the township; then look for the same township in 
the map, where you will find the name and quantity purchased, 
and the lots appurtenant. If the lots are numbered in the 
column marked D F they are on Delaware front; but if in S F 
then on Schuylkill front. And should the number of acres 
be 1,000 and upwards, begin at No. 1, in the plan on Front- 
Streets; but under 1,000, at No. 1, on the back streets. 

A B. Shews the outlines of the city extending over Schuyl- 
kill. A C. As it was divided into lots by Thomas Holme. 
A D. The alterations of said plan by Benjamin Eastburn. 

I thought it better to let the N. W. corner of the plan of 
the city intersect Delaware in the map, (as it is a matter of 
no consequence to the purchasers, their lots being numbered 
between Delaware and Schuylkill) than to contract the plan; 
as it would make the figures in it so small, that they could 
scarcely be distinguished. 

THE reason why I divided the lot No. 1 by a dotted line, 
part of which is marked a, was, because in that square 102 
feet are granted to the Germans; who were not first pur- 
chasers, neither have they any lots marked in the plan.

VIRGINIA CLAIMS 



TO LANDS IN 



WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA. 



[As preparatory to the '"Virginia Entries" of Lands in Western 
Pennsylvania, the follow iu<; account of the Pennsylvania and 
Virginia Controversy, prepared by Major Robert H. Foster, of the 
Land Department, Office .Secretary of Internal Affairs, throws 
liglit upon matters not fully understood.] 



THE PENNSYLVANIA AND VIRGINIA 
CONTROVERSY. 



A boundary controversy that involved the right to a consid- 
erable area of land, now within the limits and jurisdiction of 
our State, began as early as the year 1754, between the colonial 
authorities of Virginia on the one side, and Governor JjTmcs 
Hamilton, the representative of the proprietaries of Pennsyl- 
vania, on the other. Indeed, prior to that time, in 1749, Gov. 
Hamilton, in a letter to Thomas Lee, President of Virginia, 
on being informed by the latter that large grants of land on 
the branches of the Ohio river had been made "to certain 
gentlemen and merchants of the city of London and to in- 
habitants of the colony of Virginia," desired the opinion of the 
latter as to whether it would not be of use to have the western 
bounds of Pennsylvania fixed by commissioners of both gov- 
ernments in order to be assured that no part of these recent 
grants would fall within its limits, and at the same time ex- 
pressing a readiness to appoint commissioners and surveyors, 
to act with others to be appointed by Virginia, for the pur- 
pose of ascertaining and running the lines, but this proposition 
did not meet with a favorable response, and no action was 
taken upon it. Following this, in 1752, by the alarming en- 
croachments of the French, then pressing with energy and 
determination from Canada and the lakes towards the Ohio 
river, the authorities of both provinces were looking with 
great anxiety to the dangers that threatened their western 
borders. It became known in that year that the authorities 
of Virginia, as a matter of self protection, began to contem- 
plate the erection of a fort at the junction of the Allegheny 
and Monongahela rivers, the present site of the city of Pitts- 
burgh, a point which was believed to be of such great 
strategic importance that upon its possession. In a large meas- 
ure, defended the control of the great Ohio Valley. Thomas 
Penn n-as not averse to the building of this fort by tlio Vir- 
ginians but. at the same time, was anxious ihnt his own 
rights should not be in any way prejudiced by the enterprise. 
In Ma^ch, 1752. he writes to Gov. Hamilton: "I desire you 
will enter into any reasonable measure to assist the govern- 
ment of Virginia to build there, to wit. at the Ohio, taking 



486 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

some acknowledgment from him, that this settlement shall not 
be made use of to prejudice our right to that country," and 
again, on the 3th of July, of the same year, he writes: "I 
hope you will, as I WTOte you on the 9th of March, acquaint 
the Governor of Virginia that we consent to this (that is, to 
the, building of a fort at the Ohio) without prejudice to our 
right to the land in case it should be found to lie within our 
province, to be granted to the bonafide settlers on the same 
terms and conditions as they are to have it from Virginia." 

It was decided in 1754. by Governor Dinwiddle, of Virginia, 
that a fort should be built, and in order to raise a military 
force of sufficient strength for the purpose in view, on the 19th 
of February of chat year, he issued his proclamation; and to 
encourage enlistments, made promises of land *:o be surveyed 
east of the Ohio to such persons as would enter his service. 
This proclamation in part reads as followo: "Whereas it is 
"determined that a fort be immediately built on the river Ohio, 
"at the fork of Monongahela, to oppose any further encroach- 
"ments or hostile attempts of the French, and the Indians, in 
"their interest, and for the -security and protection of his 
"majesty's subjects in this colony, and as it is absolutely 
"necessary that a sufficient force should be raised to meet and 
"support the same: For an encouragement to all who shall 
"voluntarily enter into said service, I do hereby notify and 
"promise, and by and with the advice and consent of his 
"majesty's council in this colony, that over and above their 
"pay, two hundred thousand acres of his majesty, the King of 
"Great Britain's lands, on the east side of the river Ohio, 
"within this dominion (one hundred thousand acres whereof 
"to be contiguous to the said fort, and the other one hundred 
"thousand acres to be on or near the river Ohio), shall be laid 
"off and granted to such persons, who by their voluntary 
"engagement, and good behavious, in the said service, shall 
"deserve the same." On the 13th of March following. Gover- 
nor Hamilton wrote to Gov. Dinwiddle in answer to his procla- 
mation that "the invasions, etc., having engaged me to inquire 
"very particularly into the bounds and extent of this p.'ovince 
"westwardly, I have from thence the greatest reason to be- 
"lieve that the fort and lands (intended to be granted) are 
"really within the limits of Pennsylvania." In reply. Din- 
widdle, on the 21st of March, wrote to Hamilton, "I an? much 
"misled by our surveyors, if the forks of Monongialo be within 
"the limits of your Proprietor's grant." The reply of Gov. 
Dinwiddle, here quoted, appears to be the first recorded no-

tice of the claim of Virginia to the southwestern corner of this 
State, and therefore, to be regarded as the beginning of a 
dispute which was to continue for thirty years before an ad- 
justment was reached. In the summer of 1754 a company of 
Virginians, under command of Captain Trent, arrived at the 
confluence of the rivers and commenced to build the proposed 
fort; but before they had completed their labors a force of 
one thousand French and Indians, with eightesn pieces of 
cannon, appeared before the unfinished stockade and com- 
pelled the little body of forty-one men present for its defense 
to surrender. The French immediately built "Fort Duquesne," 
and remained in possession until forced, by the expedition of 
General Forbes, to destroy and abandon it in November, 1758, 
its place being taken by Fort Pitt, built in 1759. 

The claim of Virginia embraced all the land west of Laurel 
Hill, included within the present counties of Westmoreland, 
Fayette, Greene, Washington, and parts of Allegheny and 
Beaver; whilst the Pennsylvania claim rested entirely upon 
the charter of Charles II, King of Great Britain, to William 
Peijn, by which the lands granted to Penn were to extend 
westward five degrees in longitude from the river Delaware, 
and there had been sufficient investigation to convince the 
Pennsylvania Proprietaries that the point at which the two 
rivers united to form the Ohio was some distance within the 
limits of the royal grant to them. For twenty years, however, 
after 1754, there was no official correspondence between the 
authorities of the two colonies in relation to their claims, and, 
although the military grants promised in the proclamation of 
Gov. Dinw.iddie were never surveyed or given to the persons 
who were to receive them, settlements within the bounds of 
the territory in dispute under Virginia rights were encouraged, 
and in a few years, after success had crowned the efforts of 
General Forbes to wrest from the French their hold upon the 
Ohio, and Colonel Boquet's expedition had driven away the 
Indians and relieved the beleaguered garrison at Fort Pitt, 
pioneer settlers began to appear along the Monongahela Valley. 

On the part of the Pennsylvania authorities no rights were 
granted for lands west of the Allegheny mountains until after 
the treaty at Fort Stanwix in November, 1768, by which the 
Indian title to that section of the State was extinguished. 
Many applications authorizing surveys to be returned under 
the application system then in force, were entered early in 1769, 
and after that system ceased in September of the same year, 
many warrants for lands purchased were granted. Bedford

county, which included within its limits the entire south- 
western corner of the State to its western boundary, was 
formed in 1771, and from that time there was an active re- 
newal of the boundary controversy, with conflict of jurisdic- 
tion and earnest contention between the two provinces. 
Emigrants from Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, with 
rights from Pennsylvania and Virginia, had entered the dis- 
puted territory, and, with aroused feelings, as their sym- 
pathies and interests swayed them, became hot partisans 
either of Virginia or Pennsylvania. Lord Dunmore had in 
the meantime succeeded to the Governorship of Virginia, and 
threw himself into the controversy in behalf of his province 
with intense zeal, completely ignoring the Pennsylvania rights, 
under the charter of Charles II, to any territory west of 
Laurel Hill, and asserting in offensive ways, by letters and 
proclamations, the rights of the province of Virginia to that 
portion of Penn's grant. In 1773 Lord Dunmore himself ap- 
peared at Fort Pitt, and appointed an agent, in the person of 
Dr. John Connelly, to whom was given authority to extend 
and strengthen so far as possible the power and jurisdiction 
of Dunmore, over the inhabitants who had, at that early 
day, in the face of hardships, privations and dangers, ven- 
tured into that wild and comparatively unknown region. Con- 
nelly, in the performance of what he conceived to be his duty, 
proved to be a not less zealous and probably a more unscru- 
pulous partisan of Virginia than his master. From r.he time 
of his arrival at Fort Pitt until his departure at the opening 
of the revolutionary struggle with the mother country, he ap- 
pears in an unenviable light as an active fomenter of- ill-will 
and strife among the settlers. Indeed, it seemed that he was 
actuated by a deliberately formed purpose of provoking ani- 
mosities and antagonisms toward the Pennsylvania authori- 
ties. Westmoreland county was formed from a part of Bed- 
ford in 1773, and Hannastown, made historic by its destruc- 
tion in 17S2, by marauding Indians, assisted by a few rene- 
gade white men, was designated as the county seat. Magis- 
trates were immediately appointed for the new county, and at 
Hannastown justice, according to the forms of. law, was first 
administered west of the Allegheny mountains under the pro- 
vincial government of Pennsylvania. On the first of Janu- 
ary of the following year Connelly announced his assumption 
of the duties of his appointment by a proclamation, called at 
the time an advertisement, which was posted at Fort Pitt and 
its vicinity. In this advertisement, in which he styled him- 
self "Captain Commandant of the Militia of Pitsburg and its 



VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 489 . 

Dependencies," he says that his instructions are "to insure 
"his Majesty's subjects settled on the western waters, that, 
"having the greatest regard to their prosperity and interest, 
"and convinced from their repeated memorials of the griev- 
"ances of which they complain, that he proposes moving to 
"the House of Burgesses the necessity of erecting a new county 
"to include Pittsburg, for the redress of your complaints," 
* * * ; and further, "in order to facilitate this desirable 
"circumstance, I hereby require and command all persons in 
"the Dependency of Pitsburg to assemble themselves there 
"as a militia on the 25th instant, at which time I shaR com- 
"municate other matters for the promotion of public utility." 

The action of Connelly did not escape the attention of the 
civil officers of Westmoreland county, and before the day ap- 
pointed for the assembling of the militia at Pittsburg he was 
arrested by order of Arthur St. Clair, then prothonotary of 
the court, who afterward became General St. Clair. In a letter 
to Gov. Penn, dated February 2, 1774, giving a report in detail 
of his proceeding, St. Clair says: "Dr. Connelly was arrested 
"previous to the meeting, by orders, on his avowing himself 
"the author of the advertisement requiring the people to meet 
"as a militia and committed on refusing to find securities for 
"his good behavior till next court." Connelly, however, did 
not remain long in confinement. After a few days he was per- 
mitted to return to Pittsburg under a promise, made upon 
his honor, to return to Hannastown before the term of court to 
be held in the coming month of April; but instead of remaining 
at Pitl'sburg he went up the Monongahela river to Redstone 
(now Brownsville), and from thence, guarded by a number of 
his adherents, to Virginia, returning to Pittsburg in March. 
With his body guard he took possession of the fort, and under 
later instruction from Dunmore, reiterated his determination 
to enforce the laws of Virginia. When the time for -.he meet- 
ing of the court of Westmoreland county arriv3d, Connelly 
was present to redeem his promise, but not in manner ex- 
pected. He came with an armed force sufficiently strong to 
protect himself from re-arrest, defy the court, and to prevent 
himself, as he said, from being illegally taken to Philadelphia. 
His first move was to seize the court house and place armed 
sentinels at the dooiv with orders not to permit anyone to enter 
until he had communicated with the magistrates. He sent a 
letter to the magistrates, in which he said: "I have come to 
"free myself from a promise made to Captain Proctor, but 
"have not conceived myself amenable to this court, by any 
"authority from Pennsylvania, upon which account I cannot 



■490 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

"apprehend that you have any right to remain here as justices 
"of the peace constituting a court under that province." But 
he expressed a willingness that the court might act in such 
matters as should be submitted to it by the acquiescence of 
the people until he received instructions to the contrary from 
Virginia. The justices of the court, regarding Connelly's 
action, not only as an inexcusable impertinence, but as a 
flagrant and outrageous usurpation of power to which they 
could not with any sense of personal dignity and self respect 
submit, of course declined to accede to his offer. The following 
is their sole reply: "The jurisdiction of this court and officers 
"of the county of "Westmoreland rests on the legislative au- 
"thority of the Province of Pennsylvania, confirmed by His 
"Majesty in council. That jurisdiction has been regvilarly ex- 
"ercised, and the court and officers will continue to exercise 
"'it in the same regular manner. It is far from their intention 
"to occasion or foment disturbances, and they appreliend that 
"no such intention can with propriety be inferred from any 
"part of their conduct; on the contrary, they wish and will do 
"all they can to preserve the public tranquility. In order to 
"contribute to this very salutary purpose, they give informa- 
"tion that every step will be taken on the part of the Pro- 
"vince of Pennsylvania to accommodate any difficulties that 
"have arisen between it and the Colony of Virginia, by fixing 
"a temporary line betwixt them." Thomas Smith, afterwards 
a member of the Continental Congress, and later a justice of 
the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, under date of April 7, 
1774, from "Westmoreland Court," writes to Joseph Shippen, 
Esq., a full account of these occurrences. In this letter he 
says: "We heard when we came up to this court that he 
"(Connelly) was mustering a large party in order to prevent 
"the court from sitting: we thought that there could be no 
"foundation for such a report, but at the same time we thought 
"it prudent to order the sheriff to raise as many men as he 
"could collect, to prevent us from being insulted by a lawless 
""set of men, acting under the color of authority — the time 
"was so short that but few were collected on our side, and 
"those few were ill-armed, so that we found ourselves in a 
"very disagreeable situation when we received certain intelli- 
"gence that Connelly was coming down with 200 armed men; 
"when we found that they were near at hand the magistrates 
"thought it prudent to adjourn the court, as it was near the 
"time." Immediately following the adjournment of the court 
oame the arrest of Aeneas Mackey, Devereux Smith and An-

drew McFarland. three of the Westmoreland county justices 
who resided at Pittsburg. They had returned to their homes 
from Hannastown, on the 9th of April, .and on the next day 
were arrested by order of Connelly. The charge against them 
Yv-as that they were parties to the answer of the court given to 
Connelly, and upon their refusal to recognize his authority by 
entering bail for their appearance at Staunton, Virginia, to be 
there tried in court, they were immediately sent under guard 
to that place to be confined in jail. Before reaching Staunton 
-it appears that one of their number, Mackey, was permitted 
to go to Williamsburg, Virginia, to present his account of the 
arrest to Lord Dunmore. After hearing the story, Dunmore 
said in reply that Connelly had authority to prosecute the 
claim of Virginia "to Pittsburgh and its Dependencies," and 
that in making arrests he only imitated the officers of Penn- 
sylvania, who had imprisoned him. The justices, however, 
were released from arrest and permitted to return home. 

Governor John Penn, had been fully advised of the inten- 
tions and proceedings of Connelly and his followers. His 
anxiety for the security of the possessions of the Proprietaries 
was aroused, and he felt that the time for action on his part 
had come. Accordingly, on the 31st of January, 1774, a letter 
was addressed by him to Lord Dunmore, in which he first 
referred to the conduct of Connelly in commanding the people 
to meet him as a militia at Pittsburg, and assuming to exercise 
jurisdiction over them as settlers under th3 government of 
Virginia, as a step so sudden and unexpected as to be not 
only a matter of great surprise to him, but that it was also 
very alarming to the inhabitants who had taken, improved and 
had hitherto enjoyed their lands under Pennsylvania grants. 
With a view to convince Lord Dunmore of the justice of his 
claim, he continued in a conciliatory tone: "Being, however, 
"too well acquainted with your Lordship's character to admit 
"the least idea that you would countenance a measure ih- 
"jurious to the rights of the Proprietaries of Pennsylvania, or 
"which might have a tendency to raise disturbances within 
"the Province, I flatter myself that the laying before you a 
"short statement of the limits of this Province, so far as re- 
"gards the present question, and acquainting you with the 
"steps which have been taken to ascertain its western extent, 
"and the situation of Pittsburg, will be abundantly sufficient 
'to satisfy you that that place is, beyond all doubt, within this 
"Province. The western extent of the Province of Pennsyl- 
"vania, by the Royal Grant, is five degrees of longitude from 
"the RiTer Delaware, which is its eastern boundary. In the 



492 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

"year 1768, an east and west line was run from the Delaware, 
"at the mouth of Christiana Creek, to the crossing of Dunkard 
"creek, a branch of Monongahela, by Messrs. Dixon and Mason, 
"two surveyors of distinction, who were sent over from Eng- 
"land to run the division line between Maryland and Penn- 
"sylvania. These artists fixed the latitude and extent of that 
"line with the utmost exactness and precision, to the satis- 
"faction of the commissioners on both sides. From the 233d 
"milestone on this line a north line hath been since carefully 
"run and measured to the Ohio, and from thence up to Fort 
"Pitt; the several courses of the river have been taken with all 
"possible care. From the line of Dixon and Mason to a known 
"point in the south line of the city of Philadelphia, the true 
"courses and distances hath been discovered by actual survey, 
"as also from the point aforesaid, to that part of the river 
"Delaware which is in the same latitude as Fort Pitt, and from 
"these several data, the most exact calculations have been 
"made by Dr. Smith, Provost of our College, and Mr. Ritten- 
"house, our Surveyor General, in order to ascertain the differ- 
"ence of longitude between Delaware and Pittsburg, who all 
"agree that the latter is near six miles eastward of the west- 
"ward extent of the Province." A map of the lines run, with 
calculations and explanatory notes accompanied this letter; 
and hoping to avoid the trouble that must arise from clashing 
and disputed jurisdiction, his Lordship was requested, if he 
should still entertain doubts respecting the dispute, to defer 
appointing officers and exercising authority in that neighbor- 
hood, and thus permit the settlers to remain in undisturbed 
possession of their lands held under rights granted by the 
authorities of Pennsylvania until a temporary line of juris- 
diction could be agreed upon by commissions to be appointed 
by governments, or until the question of boundaries could 
be settled finally by His Majesty, the King of England. Dun- 
more's reply, under date of March 3, 1774, to the letter of John 
Penn, was an emphatic refusal to accept the map and calcu- 
lations transmitted with the letter, on the ground that the 
observations on which they were founded were made without 
the participation of Virginia, and because the right of the 
Proprietaries of Pennsylvania to the country about Pittsburg 
must be founded "on better authority than is there adduced to 
make it valid;" and while disclaiming any intention of causing 
disturbances he declined to defer the appointing of officers. 
He also justifies Connelly in all his proceedings and insisted 
that reparation be made for his arrest by the dismissal of 
St. Clair from office, characterizing the arrest as "a great in-

suit on the authority of His Majesty's Government in Vir- 
ginia." John Penn's answer to the above letter, dated Phila- 
delphia, March 31, 1774, is a review of the dispute from the 
time it began with the proposed building of a fort at the 
junction of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivars. And to 
avert disturbances and dissensions he again asks Dunmore 
"to defer attempting to extend the jurisdiction of Virginia 
"within the bounds claimed by the Proprietaries of Pennsyl- 
"vania; the more so because," as he says, "a petition for a 
"commission to run out and mark the boundaries between us 
"is now depending before His Majesty." He also again takes 
occasion to state the claim of Pennsylvania as follows: "I 
"must take this oportunity of notifying your Lordship that 
"the Proprietaries of Pennsylvania do claim, by their said 
"petition, as part of their Province of Pennsylvania, all lands 
"lying west of a south line to be drawn from Mason and 
"Dixon's line as it is commonly called, at the westermost part 
"of the province of Maryland, to the beginning of the fortieth 
"degree of north latitude, to the extent of five degrees of 
"longitude from the river Delaware, and I must request your 
"Lordship will neither grant lands nor exercise the govern- 
"ment of Virginia within those limits, till his Majesty's pleas- 
"ure be known." 

Correspondence having thus failed to bring about an adjust- 
ment of the dispute, the situation, in the conflict of jurisdic- 
tion set up and maintained by each party, became more and 
more alarming, while the danger of actual collision between 
the settlers, adherents of one side or the other, .increased each 
day. The Pennsylvania authorities, in this threatening emer- 
gency, were still anxious for peace, and in the hope that out- 
breaks and probably bloodshed might be prevented, deter- 
mined that one more effort looking to the establishment of a 
temporary line should be made. Accordingly two commis- 
sioners, in the persons of James Tilghman and Andrew Allen, 
members of the council of the Province, were appointed by 
Gov. John Penn, and, under written instructions, were directed 
to proceed to Williamsburg. Va., to treat in person with Lord 
Dunmore, for a temporary line, in order that the "public peace 
and tranquility on the border" might be preserved. These 
commissioners proceeded to Virginia, but their mission was 
a failure. They first called upon Dunmore to pay their re- 
spects to him and to inform him of the object of their 
presence: first, to ask him join the Proprietaries of Pennsyl- 
A-ania in a petition to the Crown to appoint commissioners 
to run the lines of Pennsylvania to the westward; and, second. 



494 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

in the meantime, to agree with his Lordship upon a line of 
jurisdiction to remedy the inconveniencies of clashing juris- 
dictions and prevent then in the future. His Lordship de- 
sired the propositions of the commissioners to be reduced to 
writing, which was accordingly done. Several letters passed 
between the commissioners and Dunmore, but nothing came 
of the negotiations. The latter would not concede anything 
to the commissioners, or agree that their construction of the 
royal grant to Penn was in any way correct, contending, ac- 
cording to his construction of the charter, that Fort Pitt must 
be fifty miles outside of the boundary of Pennsylvania, and 
asserting that it would be impossible for him to consent to 
any settlement that would oblige him to surrender jurisdic- 
tion over Fort Pitt and the surrounding country. The com- 
missioners, extremely desirous that they should not wholly 
fail in their mission to secure an understanding of some kind, 
as a last effort, and as the utmost they could coacede, then 
agreed to recede from their construction of the charter limits 
so far as to make the river Monongahela, from Mason and 
Dixon's line downwards to the Ohio, the western line of juris- 
diction, believing that such an adjustment would, as they said, 
"at once settle our present disputes without great trouble and 
"expense in running lines, or the inconvenience of keeping the 
"jurisdiction in suspense." This proposition was likewise re- 
jected, and fuCiher efforts on the part of the commissioners 
to secure an accommodation of the trouble ceased. Their last 
communication was addressed to Lord Dunmore on the 27th of 
May, 1774, and they announced the following day as the time 
for their departure. 

To add to the hardships of the settlers on the western bor- 
ders during the summer of 1774, Indian troubles came upon 
them, and they were threatened with the most dire conse- 
quences. Massacres occurred, a panic ensued, and safety was 
found only in flight to the east side of the Monongahela. Dur- 
ing this gloomy period Lord Dunmore at the head of an armed 
force ostensibly for the purpose of suppressing the Indian out- 
break, again appeared at Fort Pitt, the name of which had 
been changed to Fort Dunmore. While at that place, not un- 
mindful of his determined purpose to retain jurisdiction over 
the region, he .issued a proclamation to the people in which 
he denounced the actions of the authorities of the province of 
Pennsylvania in "unduly laying claim to a very extensive and 
"valuable quantity of His Majesty's territory." He also sets 
forth the ancient claim of the colony of Virginia to the same 
territory and his own right, under His Majesty, to govern the 



VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 495 

same. This remarkable document is dated "Fort Dunmcre^ 
"September 17, 1774." After the whereas, it concludes with 
the following sweeping order: "I do hereby, in His Majesty's 
"name, require and command all His Majesty's subjects west 
"of Laurel Hill to pay due respect to this my proclamation, 
"strictly prohibiting the execution of any act of authority on 
"behalf of the Province of Pennsylvania at their peril in this 
"country; but on the contrary, that a due regard and entire 
"obedience to the laws of His Majesty's colony of Virginia, 
"under my administration, be observed." Governor Penn did 
not permit Dunmore's proclamation to pass without notice. 
Attention was called to it by a counter pronunciamento from 
Philadelphia, dated the 12th of October, in which the Governor 
says, in substance, that, although the western limits of Penn- 
sylvania were not fixed by any authority from the Crown, it 
has been demonstrated by lines accurately run that the coun- 
try west of Laurel Hill, including Fort Pitt, was within the 
charter bounds of the province: that it had been in great part 
actually held and settled under grants from the Proprietaries 
of Pennsylvania: and that peaceable jurisdiction had been ex- 
ercised over it until the late "strange claim set up by the Earl 
"of Dunmore." In justice to the Proprietaries, who were only 
desirous of securing their own undoubted property from the 
encroachment of others, he say.s, further: "I have thought, 
"with the advice of council, to issue this, m^ proclamation, 
"hereby requiring all persons west of Laurel Hill to retain 
"their settlements as aforesaid made under this province, and 
"to pay all due obedience to the laws of this government; and 
"all magistrates and other officers who hold commissions or 
"offices under this government, to proceed as usual in the ad- 
"ministration of justice, without paying the least regard to 
"the said recited proclamation until His Majesty's pleasure 
"shall be known in the premises, at the same time strictly 
"charging and enjoining the said inhabitants and magistrates 
"to use their utmost endeavors to preserve peace and good 
order." While the magistrates of Pennsylvania were thus in- 
structed to maintain their jurisdiction, they were requested, in 
view of the fact that Dunmore had an organized militia force 
to sustain his pretentions, to he cautious in entering into 
conflict with his officers, and not to proceed to criminal prose- 
cution against them for endeavoring to enforce the laws of 
Virginia. At the close of the Indian war in October, 1774, 
Dunmore returned to Virginia, first causing the arrest of 
Thomas Smith, at Redstone, for acting as a Pennsylvania 



496 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

magistrate, placing him under bonds witli two sureties to ap- 
pear at a court to be held at Pittsburg, or Fort Dunmore, as it 
was now called by the Virginians. The territory claimed by 
Dunmore at that time was treated as part of Augusta county, 
and the time fixed for the court was the 20th of December, 
1774; a postponement occurred and it was not until the 21st 
of February, 1775, that the first court was held at Fort Dun- 
more. At this time the magistrates appointed by Dunmore 
appeared, and. after taking the oath of oflice, took their seats 
as justices of the court; and from then until the settlement of 
the boundary, in 178U, dual sets of officers asserted their right 
to exercise authority over the same people. Among the magis- 
trates of Dunmore's court was George Crogan, a holder of 
rights to four thousand five hundred acres of land by appli- 
cations entered in April, 1769, under the Proprietary govern- 
ment of Pennsylvania. 

But thrilling and far-reaching events were rapidly approach- 
ing to end the participation of the royal Governors of Penn- 
sylvania and Virginia in Colonial affairs. The American revo- 
lution was at hand, and while the people who settled in the 
valleys of the Ohio and Monongahela were partisans of either 
Virgin;iror Pennsylvania, as their interests may have influ- 
enc3d them, they were still sufficiently patriotic to unite as 
brothers to uphold and defend the liberty and independence of 
the United Colonies against a common foe. Dunmore and 
Connelly disappear from the scenes of their activities at the 
outbreak of the revolution, and leave the unsettled and per- 
plexing boundary contention to be determined, after their de- 
parture, by the two interested colonies, which are so. soon 
to be endowed with the dignity and honor of free and inde- 
pendent statehood. When the authorities of the two states 
came to consider the qtiestion it was manifest that a much 
better spirit prevailed. The importance of an early settle- 
ment was fully realized by both states, and in December, 1776, 
the Virginia legislature proposed as an adj;Listment that the 
western line of Maryland should be extended northward to 
the line of the fortieth degree of latitude, and thence west- 
wardly along that parallel "until the distance of five degrees 
of longitude from the Delaware shall be accomplished." This 
offer was a marked and generous recession from the demand 
of Dunmore for all the territory west of Laurel Hill, as it 
would give to Virginia only a part of the county of Fayette, 
all of the county of Greene, and a very small corner of the 
county of Washington, but no foi-mal action was taken by 



VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 497 

Pennsylvania on thia proposition. In the year 177S anotiier 
proposition was made by Virginia for the appointment of a 
joint commission, which proposition was accepted by Pennsyl- 
vania the following yeai*. Commissioners were duly appointed 
by both states, George Bryan, John Ewing and David Ritten- 
Mouse on the part of Pennsylvania, and James Madison and 
Robert Andrews on the part of Virginia, who met at Balti- 
more on the 27th day of August, 1779. A number of letters 
passed between these commissioners, in which the claims of 
each state was presented with proper dignity and in a com 
mendable spirit. Concessions were made by each, until, on the 
31st day of August, the fourth day of their session, an agree- 
ment dn the following words, practically the settlement of 
the long pending controversy, was reached: 

"We, James Madison and Robert Andrews, commissioners 
for the state of Virginia, and George Bryan, John Ewing and 
David Rittenhouse, commissioners for the state of Pennsyl- 
vania, do hereby mutually, and in behalf of our respective 
states, ratify and confirm the following agreement, viz: To 
extend Mason and Dixon's line due west five degrees of longi- 
tude, to be computed from the river Delaware, for the scMhern 
boundary of Pennsylvania, and that a meridian drawn from 
the western extremity thereof to the northern limit of the said 
Stato be the western boundary of Pennsylvania forever." 

This agreement was ratified by the legislature of Virginia 
on the 23d of June, 1780, and by the State of Pennsylvania on 
the 23d of September, following. The acts of both states pro- 
vided for the appointment of commissioners to run and mark 
the lines between the states in accordance with the agreement, 
but, owing to unavoidable circumstances and unexpected 
hindrances, this work was for a period delayed, and not until 
1784 was the southern line from the end of Mason and Dixon's 
line run out the full five degrees of longitude and the south- 
western corner of the State established, after careful astro- 
nomical observations by the scientists of the commission. The 
meridian line frem the southwestern corner to the Ohio river 
was run in 1785, and from the Ohio river to Lake Erie in 1786. 
The first cause of delay in the running of the lines was the 
invasion of Virginia by the British army, in 1781, which re- 
sulted in considerable derangement and confusion in the af- 
fairs of that state; and, next, interference by a number of 
Virginia partisans, who still claimed allegiance to that state, 
with Alexander McClean, when that gentleman attempted, in 
1782 to establish a temporary line of jurisdiction. This was 

32— 3— 3d Ser. 



498 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

finally accomplished, and the long standing and, at times, 
serious boundary contention was ended. From that time until 
the present the lines then established have marked the boun- 
daries between the respective states. 

As heretofore remarked, the territory in dispute was first 
treated by the Virginians as part of Augusta county, of that 
state, but it was subsequently divided into three counties, 
called Ohio, Manongalia and Yohogania. A land office, in 
charge of a surveyor, was established in each county, and, as 
settlements were encouraged, many rights for lands under 
Virginia laws were entered and surveyed. In the records of 
the land department these rights are known as "Virginia 
Entries," and consisted of state, pre-emption, treasury and 
military warrants. The terms under which lands were held 
by Virginia rights were fixed in the warrants, but in most of 
these warrants the purchase money was as low as ten shillings 
sterling for a hundred acres. The entries number over one 
thousand, and cover over an area of six hundred and thirty- 
three thousand acres of land. Upon many of the entries, how- 
ever, surveys were never made or returned, and, of course, titles 
to them under Pennsylvania laws never completed. The de- 
scription of these tracts as they are recorded in the book of 
entries, and as they are written in the surveys, are quite vague 
and indefinite, the location usually given being that of a 
stream, as "on Peter's Creek," "on the waters of the Shirtie 
(for Chartiers)," "on Pigeon Creek," "on X mile creek," "on 
Racoon creek," or on the Ohio, Monongalia, or "Yough," as 
the case might be. 

The authorities of Virginia, after the agreement of the boun- 
dary commissioners at Baltimore, but before the ratification 
of the same by the two states, appointed a number of persons 
to act as commissioners to adjust titles by hearing proofs and 
granting certificates to claimants to lands on rights acquired 
under the laws of that state. The appearance of these com- 
missioners on the Monongahela, and their proceedings were 
the cause of considerable uneasiness and some indignation 
on the part of Pennsylvanians. who feared that new rights 
might be granted under Virginia laws, in violation of the 
agreement, and also that settlers holding under Pennsylvania 
rights might be dispossessed of their lands by the summary 
action of these commissioners. An appeal was made to Con- 
gress by the Supreme Executive Council, through the Penn- 
sylvania representatives, which resulted in the adoption of the 
following preamble and resolution in relation to the new con- 
tention by that body on the 27th of December, 1773: 



VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 



"Whereas, It appears to Congress from the representations 
of the delegates of the State of Pennsylvania that disputes 
had arisen between the states of Pennsylvania and Virginia 
relative to the extent of their boundaries, which may probably 
be productive of serious evils to both states, and tend to 
lessen their exertions in the common defense, therefore, 
Resolved, That it be recommended to the contending parties 
not to grant any part of the disputed land, or to disturb pos- 
sessions of any persons living thereon, and to avoid every ap- 
pearance of force until the dispute can be amicably adjusted 
bv- both states, or be brought to a just decision by the inter- 
vention of Congress: That possession forcibly taken be re- 
stored to the original possessors, and things be placed in the 
situation in which they were at the commencement of the pres- 
ent war without prejudice to the claims of either party.' 

At the time the above resolution of Congress was passed, 
the agreement of the boundary commissioners had been rati- 
fied and confirmed, and Pennsylvania had unquestionable 
jurisdiction over the territory so long in dispute. On the 
following day, however, December 28. 1779, a proclamation was 
directed lo the people of Pennsylvania, signed by Joseph Reed, 
president of the Supreme Executive Council, by which all 
officers, civil and military, and others, subjects of the State, 
were required to pay due obedience and respect to the reso- 
lution, but grantees of lands under the State were encouraged 
"to continue in the cultivation and improvement of their 
several estates, notwithstanding any clams or pretences set 
up by the state of Virginia." They were also assured that 
they would receive "protection and support" while they con- 
tinued in duty and obedience to the laws and government of 
the State. The uneasy feeling aroused by the presence of the 
Virginia commissioners did not cease with the action of Con- 
gress in recommending that grants of land should not be made 
within the disputed district, and in March, 1780, the Supreme 
Executive Council again passed a series of strong resolutions, 
with a letter— which reads like a manifesto of war— to the 
representatives of the State in Congress; but no further at- 
tention was given to the matter by Congress. The danger to 
Pensvlvania rights by the presence of the Virginia agents or 
commissioners had no doubt been exaggerated, and soon after- 
ward the excitement and bad feeling caused by their pres- 
ence apparently passed away. Certain it is that nearly all 
the surveys of Virginia entries now in the land office show 
that they were made in pursuance of the certificates granted 



500 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

by these commissioners, and were duly recognized and ac- 
cepted by the land oflBcers of Pennsylvania. Three fac similie 
copies of surveys on file in the Department are herewith given 
for the purpose of showing the forms of certificates thereto 
appended. The first tract is situated in Fayette county, near 
Brownsville. The second, on Peter's creek, in Washington 
county, on which Cox's fort was located. The third is situ- 
ated in the last named county, also on Peter's creek, where 
the town of Finleyville now stands. A fourth draft is given 
for the purpose of showing the location ef Redstone Old Fort, 
on which the town of Brownsville is built. This last naqjed 
survey was made under a Pennsylvania right, application No. 
3583; entered July 3, 17G9. 

A land office under the Commonwealth was first established 
by an act of the Legislature, passed the 9th of April, 1781. 
The purpose of this act was to enable persons who held un- 
patented rights to land obtained from the Proprietary govern- 
ment prior CO December 10, 1776, to pay such arrearage of 
purchase money as might be due thereon, and complete their 
titles by obtaining patents. This act was followed by another 
on the 5th of April, 1782, which provided for a Board of Prop- 
erty to consist of the President or Vice President of the Su- 
preme Executive Council, a member of the same to be ap- 
pointed by the Council, the Secretary of the Land Office, the 
Receiver General and the Surveyor General, whose duty it 
was made "to hear and determine in all cases of controversy 
"or caveats, in all matters of diflaculty or irregularity touch- 
"ing escheats, warrants on escheats, warrants to agree, rights 
"of pre-emption, promises, imperfect titles or otherwise," 
which heretofore had arisen, or thereafter might arise, in 
transacting the business of the land oflBce. The first re- 
corded action taken by this board in relation to Virginia rights 
was on the 15th of September, 1784, when it was "Resolved, 
"That the Surveyor General issue his orders forthwith to his 
"deputies in the counties of Westmoreland, Washington and 
"Fayette, that upon applications made to them by any persons 
"claiming lands within their districts respectively by virtue 
"of rights acquired under, founded on, or recognized by the 
"laws of Virginia, they survey the said lands for such persons, 
"first giving public notice of the time when such surveys shall 
"be made." The deputies were further required to make re- 
turn of such surveys to the Surveyor General, giving copies 
of the "grants, entries or vouchers" on which the applicant 
requested the surveys to be made, to note any interferences 



VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 501 

"With rights granted under Pennsylvania, and to make such 
observations as would be useful for decisions in cases of dis- 
putes; and to expedite the determination of disputes they were 
requested to urge the parties interested to have depositions 
respecting the tracts taken before a magistrate in the neigh- 
borhood, to be transmitted with the returns of surveys and to 
be present at the taking of such depositions. The deputies 
were also required to certify whether the lands had been at any 
time surveyed upon Pennsylvania claims, or whether such 
lands had been applied for by the applicants or others. There 
was still considerable delay and trouble in making surveys 
and adjusting claims under Virginia rights, owing principally 
to a lack of information on the part of deputy surveyors as 
to the exact terms of the agreement between the states, and 
the absence of any official data giving the names of persons 
really entitled to lands. There wer many such persons with 
a perfect right to apply for surveys, who were anxious to 
complete their titles by taking out patents under the Common- 
wealth as soon as possible, and complaints of the delays on 
the part of the surveyors were not slow in reaching the land 
office. To remedy this condition the Board of Property, on the 
7th of March, 1785, adopted the following resolution. "Re- 
"solved, That for preventing delays upon applications to 
"deputy surveyors by persons claiming lands in the counties 
"of Westmoreland, Washington and Fayette, by virtue of 
"rights acquired under, founded on, or recognized by the laws 
"of Virginia, the Surveyor General forthwith furnish his depu- 
"ties with necessary transcripts of the papers communicated 
"by the government of Virginia to the Supreme Executive 
"Council, and by them put into his hands; that he enjoin them 
"to pay immediate attention to all applications appeared to be 
"supported by rights obtained as aforesaid before the 23d of 
"June, 1780. That in returns of all surveys made on such 
"applications they certify whether the particulars of descrip- 
"tion mentioned in the original entries correspond with the 
"lands owned by the applicants. That where such deputies 
"cannot conveniently attend the taking of depositions in dis- 
"puted cases they earnestly require both parties to be pres- 
"ent when they shall be taken in order to avoid the trouble 
"and expense they must otherwise unavoidably incur, and that 
"to give facility and dispatch in settling claims aforesaid it 
"be recommended to the Surveyor General to lessen the dis- 
"tricts and appoint a greater number of deputies, and that in 
"his choice of them he take all possible care to guard against 



502 A'IRGINIA CLAIMS. 

"the appointment of any person influenced by prejudices upon 
"the subject of such claims." 

The land office in Pennsylvania was closed in 1776 after the 
declaration of independence. "When it was again opened in 
1781, under the Commonwealth, it was for the purpose, as 
heretofore remarked, of permitting the completion of titles 
to lands held under grants from the Proprietary government; 
and not until the act of April 1, 17S4, became a law, was pro- 
vision made for the sale of the unappropriated lands of the 
State. For that purpose the office was opened on the 1st of 
July of that year. It follows that all Pennsylvania claims that 
conflicted with Virginia rights must have been acquired under 
the Proprietary government, between the years 1769 and 1776. 
These rights were under applications entered in 1769, and fol- 
lowing that year, after the application system had been aban- 
doned, by warrant and survey. There were instances within 
the disputed territory where the same lands were granted to 
difllerent persons by the authorities of each state, but provi- 
sion was made for such conflicting claims in the acts ratify- 
ing the boundary agreement. For the adjustment of such cases 
it was enacted that in the decision of disputes "preference was 
"to be given to the elder or prior right in whichet er of the states 
"the same had been acquired, the persons paying, within whose 
"boundary their land was included, the same purchase money 
"which would have been due from them to the state under 
"which they claimed the right, etc." So that a Virginia title, 
obtained in conformity with the laws of that state, if older 
than a Pennsylvania title, was to be preferred, and vice versa. 
To the honor of the courts of Pennsylvania it may be said that 
in all cases tried before them which involved a conflict be- 
tween Pennsylvania and Virginia titles, the compact between 
the states was held to be inviolate, and by every consideration 
of moral and political obligation, to be upheld and enforced 
with fidelity; and to-day within the territory, so long a matter 
of earnest contention, land titles are so well settled that there 
is probably no section of the State, unless in the three original 
and a few others of the older counties, in which there is less 
land litigation than in the counties formed out of the disputed 
district. 

An interesting case, growing out of conflicting grants of 
the same land to different persons by each state, was that of 
Sims vs. Irvine, decided May 28, 1799, in the Supreme Court of 
the United States on error from the Circuit Court of Pennsyl- 
vania. This case involved the title to Montour's Island, in the

for confirmation by patent. This was done, and on t^c Uth o^ 
December, 1787, General Irvine, having first paid into the Re- 
ceiver General's office the sum of two hundred and eighty- 
three pounds, thirteen shillings and six pence, the cost of the 
island at the rate of thirty pounds Pennsylvania currency per 
hundred acres (eighty cents an acre), received his patent. 

A suit in ejectment in the Circuit court of Pennsylvania was 
then brought against General Irvine by Sims, to ^'ecover the 
island under his military grant. The jury in the court below 



504 VIRGINIA CLAIMS. 

found a special verdict, in which all the facts of the case, to- 
gether with all the laws of both states relating to land grants 
are fully set forth, and on that finding the appeal was taken 
to the Supreme Court of the United States. One of the objec- 
tions to the title of Sims was based on the alleged invalidity 
of the assignment to him by Douglas, under the laws of Vir- 
ginia, but it was held that a military right to lands "acquired 
under a royal proclamation in 1763 was assignable, by the laws 
of Virginia, to an inhabitant of that state." Also that, "ob- 
taining a warrant on such right, and locating it, gave the as- 
signee a complete and equitable title, which was confirmed by 
the compact between Pennsylvania and Virgina." A finding 
of the jury was that Presley Neville and Matthew Richie, the 
deputy surveyors for Washington county, had received from 
the Surveyor General the list of entries which contained an 
entry for the land claimed by Sims and that on the 13th of 
April, 1787, they surveyed Montour's island and returned the 
survey into the Surveyor General's office, the "return of the 
survey setting forth that it was made for Charles Sims, as- 
signee of William Douglas, and under the Virginia warrant, 
entry and location." The fact that a survey had teen made 
and returned was admitted, but, in addition to the general 
prohibition to surveying islands in the Ohio river, it was ob- 
jected to on the ground that the defendant had procured an 
actual survey of the island as early as the year 1783, while 
the plaintiff never attempted to procure a survey under his 
right until the year 1787, which survey it was contended, 
"could not divest the defndant's previous possession." Another 
objection to the survey of Sims was that the island, being in 
the Ohio river, formed no part of Washington county, and was 
not within the limits of the district of the deputy surveyors, 
and was therefore unauthorized by the laws of Pennsylvania, 
which confined deputy surveyors to their respective districts. 
It was, however, held by the court that the survey for Sims 
wao legal. It may be remarked in this connection that the 
survey to which reference is thus made cannot be found among 
the records of this department, though there is evidence that 
such survey was actually made and returned. Other objec- 
tions were urged against the right of Sims, but the decree of the 
court was in his favor, and General Irvine was compelled to 
surrender his title to Montour's island. To-andersnify him for 
his loss thc> State Legislature gave him a State reservation of 
2,000 acres that had been surveyed at the mouth of Harbor 
creek, on Lake Erie, in the county of Erie.

AN ACCOUNT 



DONATION LANDS 



PENNSYLVANIA. 



[This paper prepared by Major Robert H. Foster, of the Depart- 
ment of Internal Affairs and printed in the Annual Report for 
1893, is so appropriate in this connection, as it is lucid in its nar- 
ration, that it is given herewith.] 



THE DONATION LANDS OF PENN- 
SYLVANIA. 



As early as the seventh day of March, 1780, while the war 
of the American revolution was still in active progress, and 
being vigorously waged by the hostile armies in the field, 
the General Assembly of Pennsylvania by resolution made a 
promise of "certain donations and quantities of laad" to the 
soldiers of the State, known as the "Pennsylvania Line," 
then serving in the Federal Army. It was provided that these 
lands should be "surveyed and divided off" at the end of the 
Avar, and allotted to those entitled to re-jeive them according to 
their several ranks. In order to comply with the letter and 
intention of the resolution of March, 1780, by the same act 
passed by the General Assembly March 12, 1783, in which it 
was provided that certain lands should be set apart and sold 
for' the purpose of redeeming the certificates of depreciation 
given to the soldiers of the Pennsylvania Line, under the act 
of December IS, 1780, it was also provided that "a certain 
tract of country, beginning at the mouth of Mogulbughtiton 
creek;* thence up the Allegheny river to the mouth of Cagna- 
waga creek ;t thence due north to the northern boundary of 
the State; thence west by said boundary, to the northwest 
corner of the State; thence south, by the western boundary 
of the State, to the northwest corner of lands appropriated 
by this act for discharging the certificates^ herein mentioned; 
and thence by the same lands east to the place of beginning; 
which said tract of country shall be reserved and set apart 
for the only and sole use of fulfilling and carrying into exe- 
cution the said resolve." 

Under Section VI, of the same act, all rights, titles or 
claims to land with the described bounds, whether obtained 
from the Indians, the late Proprietaries, or any other person 
or persons, were declared to be null and void, thus reserving 
the entire tract from sale or settlement until after the allot- 
ments of the soldiers were duly made and their claims fully 
satisfied. By section YII. officers and privates were to be 

*Now known as Mnhoninc: creek, in Armstrong county. 
■iConewaso creek, in Warren county. 



578 DONATION LANDS. 

allowed two years after the declaration of peace in which to 
make their applications, and in case of death occurring: to 
any one before his application was made, an additional year 
was allowed to the heirs, executors or administrators of such 
person, and thereafter unlocated tracts were to be disposed of 
upon such terms as the Legislature might direct. It may be 
said in passing, however, that the period for making applica- 
tions was a number of times extended by subsequent legis- 
lation. By the last section of the act, Section VIII, non-com- 
missioned oflBcers and privates were prohibited from selling 
their shares of the land appropriated to their use until after 
the same had been "actually surveyed and laid off," the act 
declaring such sales or conveyances absolutely null and void. 
In this last section of the act a distinction was made between 
commissioned officers and the non-commissioned officers and 
privates, probably under an impression that the former were 
able to take better care of their interests than the latter. It 
will be observed that the territory thus set apart under the -act 
of December 12, 1783, for donation purposes, comprises, parts 
of the present counties of Lawrence, Butler, Armstrong, Ve- 
nango, Forest and Warren, all the counties of Mercer and 
Crawford, and that portion of Erie which lies south of the 
triangle. The territory was then a wild and unbroken wil- 
derness, and we can at this day, after a century of progress 
and civilization, truly regard this section of our great Common- 
wealth, now filled as it is with a prosperous and industrious 
population that has wrought wonders of advancement and im- 
provement, as a splendid, a princely domain, devoted in our 
early history to a noble purpose. 

As a further reward for the services of the soldiers of the 
Pennsylvania Line, the next act of the General Assembly was 
one that exempted from taxation during lifetime the land 
which fell to the lot -of each, unless the same was transferred 
or assigned to another person, and then follows soon after 
the purchase of 1784, the acts of March 24, 1785, which di- 
rected the mode by which the allowances of lands to be dis- 
tributed to the troops, and providing that legal titles, vesting 
in them the right of ownership, be granted to them. The 
details of the plan of distribution provided in this act are 
particular and comprehensive. The Surveyor General was di- 
rected forthwith to appoint Deputy Surveyors for the purpose, 
of surveying the lots, who were to give bonds in the sum of 
eight hundred dollars each for the faithful performance of 
their duties, and to follow such instructions as they might

from time to time receive from tlie Surveyor General and 
the Supreme Executive Council of the State. 

Another section describes the persons who should lie entitled 
to land; and Section V, in order to comply with a previous 
resolution of the General Assembly, included the names of 
Baron Steuben, who was to receive a grant equal to that 
of a Major General of the Pennsylvania Line, and Lieutenant 
Colonel Tilghman, a grant equal to that of a Lieutenant 
Colonel of the same line, w-hile by Section VI, other troops, 
raised under resolutions of February and December, 178U, were 
also declared to be entitled to lands according to their rank 
and pay respectively. Section X, enacted that the lots should 
be of four descriptions: the first to contain five hundred acres 
each, the second three hundred acres each, the third, two hun- 
dred and fifty acres each, and the fourth, two hundred acres 
each, with the allowance of six per cent.; and before pro- 
ceeding to perform their duties under the act the deputies 
were required to subscribe an oath or affirmation- that in mak- 
ing their surveys they would not choose out the best lands 
for the purpose of favoring any one of the four classes to the 
prejudice or injury of the others, or of the State. This section 
also provides for the proper marking of the lines, the num- 
bering of the lots and the transmission of field notes, drafts 
and returns to the Surveyor General's Ofiice. Complete lists 
of all persons entitled to land under the act, with their rank 
and the quantity of land to be allotted to eaeh were to be 
furnished by the Comptroller General to the Supreme Execu- 
tive Council in order that proper instructions, through the 
Surveyor General, might be given to Surveyors in the field 
as to the number of lots to be surveyed and the quantities in 
which they were to be laid off; and when a sufficient number 
of lots were surveyed and returned, a draft of the whole was 
to be made and deposited in the Rolls Office as a public record 
to serve in lieu of recording the patents. The wisdom of tht 
last provision may be considered extremely doubtful, as has 
since been demonstrated in the fact that there are many 
patents for donation lands in existence of which the patent 
books of the Land Office do not contain a line, and no little 
trouble in tracing title to certain of these tracts has been 
experienced in consequence of that defect in the act. The 
patent books should have contained the enrollment of all. 
Section VIII provides minute directions for the distribution of 
the lots to claimants by lottery. Tickets representing the foui- 
classes, carefullv numbered and tied "with silken thread," 



5S0 DONATION LANDS. 

were to be placed iu four wheels "like unto lottery wheels," 
from which the applicants were required to draw for their 
respective allotments. When not in use for drawing the 
wheels were to be sealed and kept in the custody of a commit- 
tee of the members of the Supreme Executive Council, the 
same committee having the right to judge and determine the 
right of every applicant to receive a grant, allowing in cases 
of doubt or difficulty an appeal to the council, whose decision 
was to be final. By this section of the act it was further pro- 
vided that a Major General should draw four tickets from the 
wheel containing the numbers on the five hundred acre lots; 
a Brigadier General, three tickets from the same wheel; a 
Colonel, two tickets from the same wheel; a Lieutenant 
Colonel, one ticket from the same wheel and one from "the 
wheel containing the numbers on the three hundred acre lots; 
a Surgeon, Chaplain or Major, two tickets from the wheel 
containing the numbers on the three hundred acre lots; a 
Captain, one ticket from the wheel containing the numbers 
on the five hundred acre lots; a Lieutenant, two tickets from 
the wheel containing the numbers on the two hundred acre 
lots; an Ensign or Regimental Surgeon's Mate, one ticket from 
the wheel containing the numbers on the three hundred acre 
lots; a Sergeant, Sergeant-Major or Quartermaster Sergeant, 
one ticket from the wheel containing the numbers on the 
two hundred and fifty acre lots, and a Drum-Major, 
Fife-Major, Drummer, Fifer, Corporal or Private, one 
ticket from the wheel containing the numbers on the 
two hundred acre lots. It will be seen that the al- 
lotment according to rank was therefore as follows: To 
a Major General, two thousand acres; a Brigadier General, 
fifteen hundred acres; a Colonel, one thousand acre; a Lieu- 
tenant Colonel, eight hundred acres; a Surgeon, Chaplain or 
Major, six hundred acres; a Captain, five hundred acres; a 
Lieutenant, four hundred acres; an Ensign or Regimental 
Surgeon's Mate, three hundred acres; a Sergeant, Sergeant 
Major or Quartermaster Sergeant, two hundred acres and a 
Drum-Major, Fife-Major. Drummer or Fifer or Private, two 
hundred acres. Another section provides for the issuing of 
patents, to be signed, -sealed and delivered by the president 
or vice pi-esident of the Supreme Executive Council and pre- 
scribing a form for the same, the consideration being "services 

rendered by in the late army of the United States." 

ho only expense to which applicants were to be subjected was 
the fee for "surveying, drafting and returning." including the 



DONATION LANDS. 581 

cost of chain bearers, markers,* etc. The sum fixed was three 
pounds for a lot of five hundred acres; two pounds for a lot of 
three hundred acres, and one pound ten shillings for lots of 
two hundred and fifty and two hundred acres, to be paid by 
each applicant before he could be permitted to draw for his 
lot. There were other provisions of the act for the purpose 
of fully carrying into effect the intentions of the General 
Assembly in making the grant, especially in sections XX and 
XXI, which provided for the employment of an agent for the 
purpose of exploration to ascertain and note the quality 
of the land and the topographic features of the country. This 
agent was particularly to note such part of land as he might 
deem unfit for cultivation. 

Three days before the act of March 25, 1785, became a law 
a committee chosen by the officers of the Pennsylvania Line, 
who were no doubt acquainted with the provisions of the pro- 
posed law, and concerned for their own interests, united in a 
letter to the Supreme Executive Council, recommending the 
appointment of General William Irvine, the commanding officer 
at Fort Pitt, as agent to explore the lands. After calling at- 
tention to the provisions in the proposed law for the employ- 
ment of such agent, they say: "We therefore pray that 
Council will be pleased to appoint William Irvine, Esq., to 
that office, if the bill passes in its present state, as he is a gen- 
tleman well acquainted with the land appropriated for that 
purpose, and who is, we humbly conceive, worthy your confi- 
dence, as well as that of your most humble servants." (Penn'a 
ArcJiives, Vol. X, page 425.) The Supreme Executive Council 
acted so promptly upon the recommendation of the committee 
of officers, that two days after the bill became a law, General 
Irvine was appointed agent, and having on the same day, 
March 26, 1785, subscribed his oath of office, an order for 
ninety pounds was issued in his favor as part of his pay. On 
the same day he received his instructions, which appear in 
Volume X, page 427, Pennsylvania Archives. They read as 
follows: 

In Council, March 26, 1785. 

"Sir: By virtue of the authority vested in us by the act of 
assembly, for directing the Mode of distributing Donation 
Lands, promised to the troops of this Commonwealth." We 
have appointed you Agent to perform the duties of this office, 
it will be necessary that with all possible Dispatch & accu- 
racy, you explore the country to be laid off agreeably to Di- 



5S2 DONATION LANDS. 

rections of that Act, noting the quality of the land in the 
several parts thereof, the hills, mountains, waters, creeks, 
marshes, uplands, bottom lands, &c., and such other occur- 
rences as may deserve notice with their situation, & distance, 
but particularly the parts of the land which you may deem 
unfit for cultivation, &c.; and from time to time transmitting 
us your remarks, notes and description of the Country." 

This letter is signed by John Dickinson, and addressed to 
"The Honorable G-eneral William Irvine." General Irvine ap- 
pears to have entered upon his duties of exploration, under the 
instructions given him, with little delay, and to have exer- 
cised good judgment, assiduity and perseverance in pursuing 
them. A report of his notes and observations was transmitted 
to President Dickinson, in a letter dated at Carlisle, August 
17, 1786. These papers are replete with interest and are here 
re-produced as they appear in Volume XI, pages 513 to 520, 
Pennsylvania Archives. 

Carlisle, August 17, 1785. 
To His Excellency, John Dickinson, Esq., 

"Sir: You have herewith transmitted my description of the 
donation tract of country, together with a sketch. These will, 
I hope, prove satisfactory to your Excellency and the honora- 
able the council, and answer the public purposes for which 
they are designed. 

I observed in a former letter that few of the deputy sur- 
veyors attended on my first going into the country, these 
agreed to postpone the business till September. On my return 
to Fort Pitt, after my tour, so late as July I found three of the 
gentlemen preparing to set out to survey. I did not consider 
it my duty to attend so small a number of them, as it would 
be spending the public money and my own time to little pur- 
pose, besides the law gives me no other control over them 
than to report to the Surveyor General should they neglect 
or delay performing their duty. And I find sundry of them 
conceive they have not only a right, but are in some measure 
obliged to survey the land, good or bad. as each of them are 
instructed to survey a certain number of lots, for instance, 
260 of different descriptions and sizes, without any regard to 
water, bottom, upland or any of the usual modes observed in 
laying of land. '"Several of the districts has not 20 lots of 
good land in them, yet the deputies are each instructed to 
survey upwards of 260, when others contain perhaps r'ouble 
the quantity directed." 



DONATION LANDS. r.83 

Unless the Surveyor General alters his instructions materi- 
ally, or council, or the Assembly, take order in the premises, 
the whole end designed will be defeated as no man of common 
understanding will accept of pay for surveying such land. 

I am of opinion there is more than sufficient good land on 
the tract appropriated to answer the purpose, provided the 
western boundary line of the State strikes the west branch of 
Beaver Creek as high as is generally supposed. Mr. McLane is 
of opinion it will cross, at least sixteen miles higher than 
where his line does. In this case I propose this alteration for 
the consideration of council, that the deputies be instructed to 
begin at the west line of the State and survey all the land on 
the several branches of Beaver creek within the tract, before 
any other is laid off, if this should not prove sufficient, then 
proceed to the forks and upper branches of Tunck and Oil 
Creeks for the remainder. This mode will. I conceive, be bet- 
ter for the troops as their settlement, or vicinity to others will 
be more compact, consequently the land more valuable, and 
it will certainly be more advantageous to the State, as what- 
ever lands of value may be along the river and upper end of 
the tract will be reserved unculled, to dispose of as may 
be judged most expedient; and notwithstanding the spots 
of good land are detached; yet some of them are of such ex- 
cellent quality, and so well situated on account of water car- 
riage, easy communication with L^ke Erie, and so well cal- 
culated for stock farms, that the State may be much benefited 
by reserving them for future disposal. 

This mode will occasion an alteration, perhaps, with respect 
to the number of deputies, as fewer than the present number 
appointed would execute this mode best, and four or five would 
doubtless perform the business, provided they are allowed to 
employ assistants; these four or five might have constant com- 
munication with each other, and act as it were superintendents 
over the assistants, by which they could determine when the 
number of lots of each class required is done. I know it may 
be urged in opposition to this, that sundry of these gentlemen 
have already gone to considerable expense in equipping them- 
selves for the business and that it will be hard to dismiss them 
under these circumstances. To this I answer that the private 
advantage of two or three men ought not to be put in compe- 
tition with that of as many thousands, particularly where the 
interest of the State at large is concerned also. I farther an- 
swer that these men may be employed by the principals, and 
will venture to assert that some of them are scarce fit even 



584 DONATION LANDS. 

for this subordinate station, as perhaps the first chain or com- 
pass they ever saw was purchased for this occasion. The 
number, however, that I have proposed may be found among 
the gentlemen who understand both theory and practice ex- 
tremely well, and are men of approved integrity, and I be- 
lieve the State will find their account in this or some suca 
mode, if they even pay the trifiing expense the gentlemen have 
been at. 

I have the honor to be. 

With greatest respect, 

Sir, Your Excellency's 

Most humble servant, 

WM. IRVINE. 

Notes taken and observations made (by) the Agents ap- 
pointed to explore the tract of country presented by the State 
to the late troops of the Pennsylvania Line, of the American 
Army. 

In exploring the donation land, I began on the Line run by 
Mr. McLane, between that and the tracts appropriated for re- 
deeming depreciation certificates which he ascertained by a 
due North Line to be near thirty miles from Fort Pitt, and by 
the Common computation along the path leading from Fort 
Pitt to Venango on the mouth of French Creek, which some 
affirm was actually measured by the French when they pos- 
sessed that country. I found it forty miles; East of this path 
along Mr. McLanes Line for five or six miles, the land is 
pretty level, well watered with small springs, and of tolerable 
quality, but from thence to the Allegheny River whdch is 
about Twenty-five miles due East, there is no land worth men- 
tioning fit for cultivation; as far as French Creek all between 
the Venango Path and the Allegheny there is very little land 
fit for cultivation, as it is a continued chain of high barren 
mountains except small breaches for Creeks and Rivulets to 
disembogue themselves into the River. These have very small 
bottoms. 

As I proceeded along the path leading to French Creek 
about five miles to a Branch of Beaver, or rather in this place 
called Canaghqunese. I found the land of a mixed quality, 
some very strong and broken with large quantities of fallen 
Chestnut, interspersed with strips covered with Hickory, 
lofty oak. and for under wood or Brush, Dogwood, Hazel, &c.; 
along the Creek very fine rich and extensive bottoms in gen- 
eral fit for meadows; from hence lo another branch of said 
Creek called Flat Rock Creek, about ten miles distant, the land 



DONATION LANDS. oSo 

is generally thin, stony and broken, loaded, however, with 
Chestnut Timber, the greatest part of which lies fiat on the 
earth, which renders it difficult traveling— at the usual crossing 
place on the last named Creek, there is a beautiful fall over a 
Rock ten or twelve feet high at the fording immediately above 
the fall, the bottom is one entire Rock, except some small per- 
forations which is capacious enough to receive a horses foot 
and leg— it is here about forty yards wide and runs extremely 
rapid. Fi-om Flat Rock to Sandy Creek by Hutchins & Scull, 
called Lycomie, is about Twenty four miles; on the first twelve 
there are a considerable quantity of tolerable level land tho 
much broken with large stony flats, on which grows heavy 
burthens of Oak, Beech and Maple, particularly seven or eight 
miles from the Creek there is a plain or savannan three or 
four miles long, and at least two wide, without any thing 
to obstruct the prospect, except here and there a small grove 
of lofty Oaks, or Sugar Tree, on the skirts the ground rises 
gradually to a moderate heighth from which many fine springs 
descend, which water this fine Tract abundantly— along these 
Rivulets small but fine spots of meadow may be made, from 
hence the remaining twelve miles to Sandy Creek is a ridge 
or mountain, which divides the waters of the Allegheny, the 
Beaver and Ohio, and is from East to West at least three 
times as long as it is broad — on the Whole of this there is 
Ittle fit for cultivation, yet some of it is well calculated for 
raising stock. But a person must be possessed of very large 
Tracts to enable him to do even this to purpose. 

From Sandy to French Creek is about seven or eight miles 
from the mouth, but it soon Forks into many small runs, and 
it but a few miles from the mouth to the source— there are 
two or three small bottoms only on this Creek— to French 
Creek is one entire hill, no part of which is by any means fit 
for cultivation. 

On the lower side, at the mouth of French Creek, where the 
Fort called Venango formerly stood, there is three or four 
hundred acres of what is commonly called upland or dry 
bottom, very good land. On the North East side, about one 
mile from the mouth, another good bottom begins of four 
or five hundred acres, and on the summits of the hills on the 
same side tho high, there is a few hundred acres of land fit 
for cultivation— this is all in this neighborhood nearer than 
the first fork of the Creek; which is about eight miles distant. 
On the Road leading from French to Oil Creek, within about 
three miles and a half of Venango, there is a bottom of fine 



586 DONATION T^ANDS. 

land on the Bank of the Allegheny, containing four or five 
hundred acres, there is little beside to Oil Creek fit for cul- 
tivation. 

French Creek is one hundred and fifty yards wide. 

From French to Oil Creek is about eight miles— this is not 
laid down in any map, notwithstanding it is a large stream 
not less than eighty, or perhaps a hundred yards wide at the 
mouth, a considerable depth, both of which it retains to the 
first fork, which is at least twenty males up, and I am certain 
is as capable of rafting timber or navigating large boats on 
as French Creek in the same seasons this high. On the North 
East or upper side of this creek, at the mouth, is four or five 
hundred acres of good bottom, and about a mile up there is 
another small bottom on the South West side, which is all the 
good land to the first fork. 

Oil Creek has taken its name from an oil or bituminous 
matter being found floating on the surface. Many cures are 
attributed to this oil by the natives, and lately by some whites, 
particularly Rheumatic pains and old ulcers; it has hitherto 
been taken for granted that the water of the Creek was im- 
pregnated with it, as it was found In so many places, but I 
have found this to be an error, as I examined it carefully and 
found it issuing out of two places only — these two are about 
four hundred yards distant from (each) other, and on opposite 
sides of the Creek. It rises in the bed of the Creek at very 
low water, in a dry season I am told it is found without any 
mixture of water, and is pure oil; it rises, when the creek ds 
high, from the bottom in small globules, when these reach the 
surface they break and expand to a surprizing extent, and the 
flake varies in color as it expands; at flrst it appears yellow 
and purple only, but as the rays of the sun reaches it in more 
directions, the colors appear to multiply .into a greater number 
than can at once be comprehended. 

From Oil Creek to Cuskakushing, an old Indian Town, is 
about seventeen miles — the whole of this way is barren, high 
mountains, not fit for cultivation; the mountain presses so 
close on the River that it is almost impassable, and by no 
means impractible when the River is high, then travelers 
either on foot or horseback are obliged to ascend the mountain 
and proceed along the summit. 

At Cuskushing there is a narrow bottom about two miles 
long, good land and a very fine Island fifty or sixty acres, where 
the Indians formerly planted corn. From Cuskushing to 
another old Indian Town, also on the Bank of the River, is 



DONATION LANDS. SS7 

about six miles; this place is called Canenacai or Hickory 
Bottom: here is a few hundred acres of good land and some 
small Islands, from hence to a place named by the natives 
the Burying Ground, from a tradition they nave that some 
extraordinary man was hurried there many hundred years 
ago, is about thirteen miles; most of this way is also a barren 
and very high mountain, and you have to travel greatest part 
of the way in the Bed of the River. To Brokenstraw Creek, 
or Bockaloons. from the last named place is about fourteen 
miles, here the hills are not so high or barren, and there are 
sundry good bottoms along the River. About half way there 
is a hill called by the Indians Paint Hill, where they find 
very good red oker. Brokenstraw is thirty yards wide, there 
is a fine situation and good bottom near the mouth on both 
sides, but a little way up the creek large hills covered with 
pine make their appearance. From Brokenstraw to Canewago 
is eight or nine miles — here is a narrow bottom, interspersed 
with good dry land, and meadow ground all the way, and 
there is a remarkable fine tract at the mouth of Conewago, of a 
thousand or perhaps more acres, from the whole of which you 
command a view up and down the main branch of Allegheny, 
and also up Conewagoo a considerable distance. Conewagoo 
is one hundred and fifty yards wide, and is navigable for 
large boats up to the head of Jadaque Lake, which is upwards 
of fifty mile from its junction with the east branch of the 
River. The head of Judaque Lake is said to be only twelve 
miles from Lake Erie, where it is also said the French for- 
merly had a Fort, and a good Waggon Road from it to the 
Lake. Conewagoo forks about thirty miles from the mouth 
of the East Branch, is lost in a morass where the Indians 
frequently carried their canoes across into a large creek 
called the Cateraque. which empties into the Lake forty or 
fifty miles above Niagara. 

This account of the branches of Conewagoo I had from my 
guide, an Indian Chief of the Senecas, a native of the place, 
and an intelligent white man, who traversed all this country 
repeatedly. I have every reason to believe the facts are so — 
tho I do not know them actually to be so as I went only a 
small distance up this creek, being informed there is no land 
fit for cultivation to the first fork or to the lower end of 
Jadaque Lake, which begins seven miles up the West Branch, 
except what has already been mentioned at the mouth of the 
creek, the appearance of the country, in a view taken from 
the summit of one of the high hills, fully justified this report.

For the same reason that I did not proceed far up Cona- 
wagoo, I returned the most direct Road to the burying ground 
— here three old Indian paths take off, one to Cayahaga, on 
Lake Erie, one to Cuskusky, on the West branch of Beaver 
Creek, and the third to a Salt Spring, higher up the samie 
branch of Beaver — from hence I crossed the chain of moun- 
tains, which runs along the River, and in traveling what I 
computed to be about twenty-five miles, reached the first fork 
on Oil Creek, on the most easterly Branches there are vast 
quantities of White Pine, fit for masts. Boards, &c. In this 
fork is a large Body of tolerable good land, tho high, and 
along the West Branch very rich and extensive Bottoms fit 
for meadow, of the first quality — this continues about fifteen 
miles along the creek, which is a beautiful stream, from thirty 
to forty yards wide, and pretty deep. From the West Branch 
of Oil Creek I proceeded on a Westerly course, about ten miles 
along a ridge which is difficult to ascend, being high and 
steep, but when you get up it is flat on the summit, four or 
five miles broad, very level, and fine springs issue from the 
declivity on both sides, the land heavily loaded with Hickory, 
large Oak, Maple, and very large Chestnut. From the West 
end of this ridge several large springs rise, which form the 
most easterly branch of French Creek — there are five branches 



DONATION LANDS. oS9 

of this creek, which is called Sugar Creek, by Mr. Hutchins. 
all of which have fine Bottoms, excellent for meadow and 
pasturage, but the upland or ridges between are stony, cold, 
moist and broken, chiefly covered with Beech. Pine and 
scrubby Chestnut. 

At the fork or junction of Sugar Creek with the main or 
West Branch of French Creek, (which is only eight miles up 
from Venango,) there is some fine plains or savannahs, and a 
large quantity of meadow ground — there are but few bottoms, 
and little or no upland besides what is above mentioned, for 
twenty miles up this branch, where there is a considerable 
quantity of excellent meadow ground, beside which there is 
not much good land until you reach Le Berroff (Boeuf's). 

From Venango, I returned along the path leading to Pitts- 
burg to within about seven miles of Flat Rock Creek, here I 
tcok a West course along a large dividing ridge already 
noticed, about ten miles, where I struck a branch of Canagh- 
quenese or Beaver, about thirty yards wide, and which joins 
Flat Rock before it empties into the main branch of Canagh- 
quenese — on this creek is a very fine and larger bottoms, and 
in some places some good upland, tho' much broken with 
high, barren hills and some deep morasses. This creek is not 
laid down in any map that I have seen. After having ex- 
plored this creek and lands adjacent, I proceeded on a South 
course till I struck Mr. McLene's line within eight miles of 
the great Beaver Creek, which I followed to the Creek; all this 
distance is very hilly, there are some small bottoms, but the 
major part of those eight miles is not fit for cultivation. 

From where Mr. McLane's line strikes the great or West 
Branch of the Beaver, I continued exploring the country up 
the several western branches of the Beaver, Viz, the most 
Westerly, and two branches denominated the Shenaago. The 
distance from the above named line to an old Moravian Town 
is three or four miles, from thence to Shenaugo, two and a half 
or three miles; thence to a fork or second branch, two miles; 
from the mouth of Shenango to Cuskuskey, on the West 
branch, is six or seven males, but it was formerly all called 
Cuszuskey by the natives along this branch as high as the 
Salt spring, which is twenty-five miles from the mouth of 
Shenango. There is such a similarity in almost all the lands 
on all the branches of Beaver Creek, that a particular descrip- 
tion of each would be mere (repetition). I shall therefore only 
brielly observe that the bottoms generally are the most excel- 
lent that can l)e well imagined, and are very extensive— the 



590 DONATION LANDS. 

upland is liilly, and some bad, but most of the hills are fertile 
ana very rich soil — from the falls of the Great Beaver up to 
the head of the West Branch, and twenty miles up the She- 
nango branch, is to a considerable distance on either side 
those creeks there is little land but may be cultivated, and I 
believe no country is better watered. 

I herewith transmit a sketch of that part of the country 
only which my duty as agent obliged me to explore. This, 
together with the remarks herein contained will, I flatter 
myself give a juster idea of the tract than any map yet pub- 
lished. Tho' I do not pretend to say it is correct, as the dis- 
tances are all supposed, and there are probably several om.is- 
sions in this sketch, yet more creeks, hills, &c., are noticed 
than have been before and their real courses and near con- 
nections & division by Hills and Ridges ascertained. 

No Creek is laid down or branch which is not upwards of 
Twenty yards wide — smaller runs are not noticed — on the 
whole I have endeavored as well in the remarks as in the 
sketch,* so far as I have gone, to answer the end for which 
I was appointed Agent, as well as in my power. 

WM. IRVINE, Agent. 

N. B. The dotted lines show the several courses taken in 
exploring the country on the sketch — besides the several on- 
sets were made to gain summits of hills for the benefit of 
prospects. All the Branches of Canaghquense, which .are six 
or seven in number, join and form one large Creek before it 
enters the Beaver, the junction is about eleven miles above 
the mouth of Beaver from above the falls and four below 
McLene's line.' I have been unavoidably obliged to leave the 
North and West lines open in the sketch, as I could not do 
otherwise till these boundary lines are run; this also prevented 
my compleating the business, not being able to determine 
perhaps within several miles, where the line may run. I am 
persuaded the State of Pennsylvania might reap great advan- 
tages by paying early attention to the very easy several com- 
munications with Lake Erie from the western parts of their 
country, particularly Conewagoo; P'rench Creek and the West 
Branch of Beaver, from a place called Mahoning to where it 
is navigable for small craft is but thirty miles to Cayahuga 
River, which empties into the lake. A good waggon road may 
be made from Fort Pitt to the mouth of French Creek. & all 
the way from the mouth of Beaver to Cayuhuga, which is not

suspends for this reason extending his line further West than 
the Great Beaver, which he has found to be 47 miles from the 
mouth, Mogwolbughtitum. from this part of Beaver Creek it 
is conjected the West line of the State will run lu oi 12 miles."' 
In the meantime the authorities of the State were busy in 
perfecting the machinery necessary for carrying into efteci 
the scheme for the allottment and distribution of the lands to 
those persons entitled to receive them. On the third of May, 
1785, John Lukens, the Surveyor General, is informed that by 
the report of the Comptroller General the number of lots to 
be surveved and the quantity of laud that each should contain ' 
would be "177 lots of the first description, each containing 500 
acres; 88 of the second description, each containing 300 acres; 
186 of the third description, each containing 250 acres, and 
2119 of the fourth description, each containing 200 acres," 
making 2,570 lots of the various descriptions, and containing 
^n the aggregate 585,200 acres of land. On the second of the • 
<;arae month the Surveyor General inform Council that he had 
nominated the following persons to Council "for their appro- 
bation to be appointed Deputy Surveyors of the donation lands 
West 'of the Allegheny river, Vizt: Major William Alex- 
ander, Benjamin Lodge, Captain James Christie, Ephriam 
Douglass. Griffith Evans. James Dickinson, John Henderson, 
William Power, Junior, Peter Light, Andrew Henderson. James 
Dickinson James Hoge, David Watt of Sheman's Valley. Alex- 
ander McDowell." The territory in which the donation 'sur- 
veys were to be made was divided into ten districts* by the 
Surveyor General, after consultation with General Irvine, soon 
after 'the latter gentleman had received the appointment of 
Agent The districts were numbered in regular order to the 
north from the north line of the depreciation lands-district 
No. 1. adjoining that line and district No, 10, covering parts 
the present counties of Erie and Warren. From a letter of 
the Survevor General to Secretary Armstrong, dated May 14. 
1785, in relation to the districts, there seems to have been 
some slight friction between the authorities in naming the 
Deputy Surveyors. According to Mr. Lukens. the Surveyors 
were named by him and General Irvine, "four of whom were 
officers of the Pennsylvania Line, and were recommended by 
their superior officers and were Practical Surveyors in the back 
counties, to which we added six more as per List sent to Coun- 
cil ye 5th inst." He then says. "At which Mr. Watts coming

in, desired me to enter his son's name, which I did, and have 
also sent in the names of James Hoge & Peter Light, since 
for fear some of the first ten should disappoint us; four of the 
first ten are Commissioned & the others sent for — now why the 
eleventh should be pushed before we hear some thing from the 
others, I should be glad to be informed, unless Council have 
some objection to some of the first." The trouble, whatever it 
may have been, soon disappeared, and the ten Surveyors ap- 
pointed were William Alexander, for the first district, John 
Henderson, for the second district, Griffith Evans, for the 
third district, Andrew Henderson, for the fourth district, Ben- 
jamin Lodge, for the fifth district, James Christy, for the sixth 
district, William Power, for the seventh district, Alexander 
McDowell, for the eighth district. James Dickinson, for the 
ninth district, and David Watts, for the tenth district. With 
a single exception the persons named must have entered upon 
the performance of their duties very promptly and pursued 
them with commendable energy. Considering the character 
of the country in which their work was to be done, its wild 
and unsettled condition, and the difiiculties to be encountered 
and overcome, the task before them was by no means an 
easy one. Except a few white traders along the Allegheny 
river, they would meet only Indians, and with their presence 
in those days there would always be an apprehension of lurk- 
ing danger. The surveys of nine districts were, however, 
made with little or no difficulty so far as the records show, and 
were returned to the land office early in the year 1786, one dis- 
trict really on the 28th of December, 1785. There was an 
equal allotment of the number of tracts of each description to 
be surveyed to the ten districts— twenty tracts of 500 acres 
each, ten of 300 each, twenty-one of 250 acres each and two 
hundred and seventeen of 200 acres each to each district. The 
first district. William Alexander, Surveyor, was returned in 
February, 1786; the second, John Henderson, Surveyor. Feb- 
ruary 6, 1786; the third, Griffith Evans, Surveyor, December 
28, 1785; the fourth, Andrew Henderson. Surveyor, January 
12, 1786; the fifth, Benjamin Lodge, Surveyor, February 7. 
1786; the sixth, James Christy, Surveyor, March 18 1786; the 
seventh, William Power, Surveyor, March 13. 1786; the eighth, 
Alexander McDowell. Surveyor. February 15, 1786, and the 
tenth. David Watts. Surveyor, February 12. 1786. The ninth 
district is omitted from the above statement. The Surveyor 
of that district, James Dickinson, does not apepar to have

reached the locality assigned to him until after the others 
had completed their work. He Started some time in the fall 
of 1785 to make his surveys, and reached Venango, at which 
point it seems he was deterred from proceeding any further 
by fear of trouble with the Indians. After a consultation with 
several Indian Chiefs he determined to return home without 
making any surveys in the district. His explanation of this 
default on his part is found in a letter to the Surveyor General, 
dated "Pits Burg, 24th January, 1786," (?) in which he gives 
a statement of his interview with the Indians, his address to 
them and the answer of the Chief Whole Face. The letter of 
explanation and interview appear in Volume X, pages 740 
and 741, Pennsylvania Archives and read as follows: 
James Dickinson, to John Lukens, 

Dear Sir: Agreeably to Commission and Instructions for 
Surveying Donation Lands No. 9, District I proceeded oh my 
Errand as far as Venango; but not without hearing on my way 
a very great uneasiness among the Indians at the procedure 
of the State in the ■ Purchase of those lands, wh'ireupon I 
thought it necessary to stop there a few Days & consult some 
Indians Chief on the subject before I proceeded further 
where after the advice of the Pittsburg Traders Ther, I sent 
for by a Runner Whole Face, The Corn Planter, & Long Hair, 
three Senica Chiefs who were then out a hunting, two Days 
March from Venango. Whole Face & Long Hair came in & 
the Corn Planter refused, — At their coming in by an inter- 
preter Elijah Matthews I informed them my Errand, they 
returned for answer, they could not then give me an answer 
to mj' Proposal but would in a few Days; I waited on them 4 & 
then they gave me a Hearing, which was as follows Verbatim. 
— At Mr. Thomas Wilkey's store at Venango, Present Mr. 
Thomas Wilkey, Captain Jacob Springer & Elijah Matthews. — 
Indians, The Chiefs Whole Face & Long Hair, with seven 
others. — 

My Friend Mr. Whole Face, 

I was sent here by the great Council of the State of Penn- 
sylvania held at Philadelphia, to Measure some Lands a little 
to the Northward of this Place, which Land I am told the 
great Council had bought of our Brothers the Indians, whose 
sole Property they understood it to be — But on my way Here 
T was told the Indians were not well Pleased we should meas- 
ure those Lands. I thought it therefore best to stop with you 
38— 3— 3d Ser. 



591 DONATION LANDS. 

a few Days in Order to know what your uneasiness was if in 
my Power to remove any obstacle in tlie Way; being fully as- 
sured the Great Council of the State would do every Thing on 
their side to keep alive Friendship, To maintain Peace, To In- 
crease Friendship, To support a Union & to make Trade 
Flourish between their Brothers the Indians and themselves, 
as long as Time shall measure the rolling year, & uttermostly 
endeavorer the Hapiness of both Nations — Now my Brothers 
if there is any thing in the way of all these Things I have 
mentioned, I do wish & intreat you, to inform me frankly and 
if it can be in my power to serve to removing any such Thing 
as may obstruct our mutual Happiness, I shall always think 
myself happy of having it in my power so to do; or if you 
think some other Person more suitable to represent this Mat- 
ter should be glad it was soon done & your objections to my 
Errand sent to the great Council at Philada. 

To which Mr. Whole Face after consulting with the others 
gave the following answer, 

Brother of the Big Knife, 

Several Surveyors have been up here to Measure Lands the 
Last Summer and have gone Home. We know not what was 
their meaning, as none of them told us, but went on without 
so much as informing their Intent. When they came to our 
hunting Fires, we used them well without any Question & 
when they wanted any of our assistance we gave it freely. 
Many of our young Warriors are dissatisfied with (their) Con- 
duct, who are in the English Interest and also with the Re- 
ward we received for the Lands Thinking it inadequate for so 
large a Body; it not being one pair of Mokosons a piece; 
they therefore would advise me not to proceed on my Busi- 
ness and to inform the thirteen Fires it was their opinion I 
was not safe to proceed, though they present would pledge 
their Faith for my safety against all Indians at Venango & 
the Hunters to the Southward of that place; yet would not an- 
swer for it to the Northward, not even one Mile. That in the 
Spring as early as possible the six Nations would hold a great 
Council at Fort Pitt where & when they & all their Brethren 
hoped to make an endless Peace with their Brothers of the 
thirteen Fires & hoped till then I would put by every Thought 
of proceeding on my Errand as being very Dangerous; & then 
they hoped every obstruction would be removed & we should 
walk the Woods together as Brothers aught to do, in Love &

Pleasure. And now my Brother tell your great Couucil of 
the thirteen P'ires tls our Fault you do not go on and not yours.

come down as soon as they are recovered a Little. In the 
mean time remain yours to serve with the utmost affection? 

JAMES DICKINSON. 

P. S. I have not wrote you the private conversation Directed. 
To John Lukens, Esqr., Surveyor General, Philadelphia. 

The explanation of Mr. Dickinson was not satisfactory, as 
will be seen by a reference to the proceedings of the Supreme 
Executive Council at meetings held in Philadelphia, March 
9th, and 10th, 1786, to be found in Volume XIV, pages 653 
and 654, Colonial Records. Among the proceedings of the 9ta 
the following appears: "On consideration of the delinquency 
of James Dickinson, a Deputy Surveyor of Donation lands, 
stated in a letter from Mr. Lukens, it was Ordered. That he 
be removed from Office, and that the Secretary General pro- 
ceed to nominate a successor thereto;" and on the following 
day we find that "Griffith Evans, Esquire, was appointed a 
Deputy Surveyor of donation lands, in the room of James 
Dickinson, removed by an order of yesterday." This accounts 
for the omission of surveys from the ninth district in the first 
returns made to the Land Office, nor were any surveys for 
donation purposes subsequently made in the district. The 
reason for this may be found in a minute of the Supreme 
Executive Council May u. 1786. Volume XV, page 16, Colonial 
Records. The following appears among the proceedings of 
that day: "A memorial from sundry officers of the late Penn- 



596 DONATION LANDS. 

sylvania line, stating that large bodies of excellent land re- 
main yet unsurveyed on the waters of Beaver river, in the 
donation land, very far superior in value, quality,- and situa- 
tion, to the lands in district number nine, and praying that 
the number of lots designed for the ninth district may be sur- 
veyed on the aforesaid waters, by the Surveyor appointed to 
said district was read and referred to the Surveyor General, 
who is directed to comply with the prayer of the 3aid petition." 
Accordingly Griffith Evans, the successor of James Dickinson, 
immediately proceeded to locate the lots assigned to the ninth 
district in the unsurveyed parts of districts numbers one, two, 
and three, and on the 24th of July, 1786, made his returns 
to the Land Office. The return of the surveys made by Mr. 
Evans, in districts one, two and three, in place of those 
originally intended for the ninth district, completed the survey 
of all the districts and the connected drafts of each district, 
in a good state of preservation are now remaining in the De- 
partment of Internal Affairs. The number of lots returned 
was slightly in excess of the number the Surveyor General 
was directed to have surveyed. There were two hundred lots 
of 500 acres; one hundred of 300 acres; two hundred of 250 
acres; and twenty-one hundred and seventy of 200 acres, mak- 
ing twenty-six hundred and eighty lots comprising 616,500 
acres of land. Preparations were now begun for the distri- 
bution of the lots. The Surveyor General made his return to 
Council, and on the 31st day of August, 1786, the following 
order was placed upon the minutes: "Ordered, That the draw- 
ing of the lottery for, and the patenting of the sail (donation) 
lots, shall commence on the first day of October next, to be 
continued one year from the 29th instant." The committee of 
members of the Supreme Executive Council selected to super- 
intend the drawing of the lottery consisted of John Boyd, 
Jonathan Hoge, Stephen Ballitt and William Brown, to which 
was shortly afterward added Peter Muhlenberg and Samuel 
Dean. The records do not show definitely how many appli- 
cants availed themselves of the privilege of drawing during 
the period first fixed for the lottery to remain open; but evi- 
dently Lieutenant Joseph Collier, was early on hand. He 
drew two lots of 200 acres each. No. 97 in the first district 
and No. 1,462 in the seventh district. A patent was issuecl to 
him on the 2nd day of October, one day after the drawing 
began, and it was probably the first one granted. That a 
large number of claimants made their drawings during the 
first period is evident, however, from the number of patents 



DONATION LANDS. 



that were granted after the opening in October, 1786, and 
during the year 1787, though it was found necessary as fhe 
closing day approached to grant an extension of time to 
enable other claimants to appear who had failed to do so. A 
minute of Council, of August 29, 1787, Volume XV, page 2G3, 
Colonial Records, reads as follows: "WHEREAS, It is repre- 
sented to this Board that there are many of the line of the 
State intitled to land that have not yet appeared by themselves 
or sent orders to draw for their lots; and by resolve of the 
board of the thirty-first of August, 1786, they will be pre- 
cluded unless the time be .prolonged so as to include one year 
from the commencement of drawing; therefore. RESOLVED. 
That the lottery continue open for applicants until the first 
day of October next, and this resolution be published, so that 
all concerned may have notice thereof." 

The time was again extended for a period of one year by 
an act passed the 13th of September, 1788. and by subsequent 
legislative enactments there were numerous extensions, some 
of the acts making them also providing for the proper au- 
thentication of claims, and for other purposes affecting the 
rights of claimants. The extensions of time in which to pre- 
sent applications really continued under the various laws until 
April 1st. 1810. which was the last limit of time fixed, and from 
that day the oflftces were closed against any further applica- 
tions. , ^ ^, 

Owing to the uncertainty which existed in regard to the 
northern boundary of the State when the tenth district was 
curveved. a serious mistake occurred in the location of a large 
number of lots in that district. It was discovered after the 
boundarv line between Pennsylvania and New York had been 
loc-ited in 1787, thai many of the lots fell within the State of 
New York This mistake involved one hundred and twenty 
lots that were wholly or in part within that State, thirty-one 
of them lying within the Erie triangle which did not beconie 
a part of Erie county, Pennsylvania, until 1792. Nearly the 
entire number of thes lots had been drawn from the lottery 
wheels bv persons whose claims had been established, and pat- 
ents had'been granted to them before the error in the surveys 
became known. In order that such persons should not sufter 
bv an unfortunate and mistaken location of the land they had 
drawn, and thus be deprived of the reward promised to them. 
the General Assembly on the 30th day of September. 17jL 
passed a law for their relief. The first section of the act pro- 
vided that the Surveyor General should ascertain and report 



598 DONATION LANDS. 

to the Governor the number of patents that had fallen within 
the State of New York, together with the number of acres 
contained in each patent and the names of the persons to 
whim such patents were issued, which report was to be 
printed in three newspapers in Philadelphia, with notice to 
all persons concerned to apply before the first day of December 
following to the Surveyor General, who was authorized to 
ascertain by lot the order of priority by which such persons 
should choose other lots. The second section provided that 
applicants should in their order of priority chose other lots 
out of any of the surveyed tracts not otherwise disposed of 
within any of the donation districts. The third section, that 
after such persons had made their choice, patents should be 
granted to them without fees, on the surrender for cancellation 
of the patents previously gi-anted to them. They were also 
required to give quit claims to the Commonwealth for com- 
pensation on acount of any losses they may have suffered. 
This act was followed by another on the 10th of April. 1792, 
extending the limit of time fixed for receiving applications 
from December 1st, 1791, to July 1st, 1792, and directing the 
report of the Surveyor General to be printed in newspapers 
of Philadelphia, Lancaster, York. Chambersburg. Harrisburg, 
Carlisle and Pittsburg, with notice that application must be 
made within the time designated. Other legislation for the 
purpose of fully indemnifying the persons who held patents 
to these lots, and to secure to them all the benefits to which 
they were entitled under the act of March 12, 17S3, and March 
24, 1785, followed the acts above mentioned. The acts of 
April 5, 1793, and February 23, 1801, were of that character. 
In the last act the Comptroller General was directed to furnish 
to the Secretary of the Land Office a list of the names of 
such persons whose lots fell outside of the State, who had re- 
ceived no equivalent. It also provided that applications under 
the act should be made within three years by the applicant 
personally, his widow or children, or by his, her or their at- 



*The estimates of the authorities at the time was that one 
hundred and forty lots fell wholly within the state of New York 
and twenty-three partly so, making: one hundred and sixty- 
three in all. This was an over estimate. An actual count of 
the lots as laid down in Ihp map of the district, if the line 
drawn thereon is correct, show the number affected by the mis- 
take to have been as above stated. It was also afterwards dis- 
covered that a number of lots that had been drawn and re- 
leased as lying- in New Yrrk were found to be wholly in Penn- 
sylvania, a fact shown in the preamble of an act passed April 



DONATION LANDS. r.99 

torney. When made by an attorney he was "to declare under 
oath or affirmation that he had no interest in the claim other- 
wise than to serve the applicant." The Board of Property was 
Riven power to act in all case of dispute between applicants, 
and when lots were drawn the Secretary of the Land Office 
was directed to grant patents under the inspection of the 
Board of Property in the same manner as was formerly done 
by the Supreme Executive Council. There was no further leg- 
islation with special reference to the lots that were surveyed 
within the State of New York. Under the provisions of the 
laws recited the claims of all applicants who drew such lots 
were received when made within the limit of time prescribed, 
and properly adjusted. 

Another difficulty arose in relation to a large number of the 
lots surveyed in the second district because of the alleged in- 
ferior quality of the land laid off by the surveyor, John Hen- • 
derson. In his notes and observations General Irvine says in 
i-eference to the character of the country which became part 
of that district, that "East of this *path along Mr. McLanes 
line for five or six miles, the land is pretty level, well watered 
with small springs, and of tolerable quality, but from thence 
to the Allegheny river which is about twenty-five miles due 
oast, there is no land worth mentioning fit for cultivation." 
As it was the expressed intention of the General Assembly 
when the donation was made that only the best lands within 
the territory set apart by law should be surveyed for the pur- 
pose of the donation, it was thought wrong that so laudable 
a design on the part of the law makers should be defeated by 
giving lands thai could not be cultivated. The attention 
of the Surveyor General had early been called to the poor 
quality of the land in this district by General Irvine. In a 
letter to General Armstrong, dated at Carlisle, July 18th, 
1786, he recommended that all the surveys made by John 
Henderson be rejected by Council, and that Major Alexander 
lie appointed to lay off an equal number of lots in other parts 
of the reserved tracts without being confined to any par- 
ticular district. He further says in the same letter, "if the 
Surveyor General has not found my letter in which 1 com- 
plained of John Henderson's surveys as improper to be ac- 
eepted— he has had sufficient verbal testimony as well from me 
as sundry other persons to justify his informing Council that 
the land is not such as the Assembly intended the troops 
should get, or they could possibly think of receiving, particu- 



'The path leading from Fort Pitt to Venango.

larly as he surveyed all bad and left a large quantity of good 
land within his district." The views of General Irvine were 
not fully adopted, though his representations did to a certain 
extent influence the action of Council. In the preparations 
for the drawing of the lottery, one hundred and thirty-four 
tracts of 200 acres each, lying in the eastern part of the dis- 
trict, nearest to the Allegheny river, and now part of Butler 
county, were stricken from the scheme, and the numbers 
representing the tracts not placed in the wheels. By this 
action of Council the district became known as the "Struck 
District," and was ever after so called. The struck numbers 
remained out of the wheel until after the act of April 2, 1802, 
the title of which was "An act to complete the benevolent 
intention of the legislature of this Commonwealth, by dis- 
tributing the donation lands to ail who are entitled thereto." 
became a law. The preamble to this Act set forth that some 
of the officers and soldiers of the Pennsylvania Line had not 
received their donation land, and that it was represented that 
amongst the lots in the tenth district, for which the owners 
had received patents and which they had released as being 
in the State of New York, and received other lots in lieu thereof, 
many were still in Pennsylvania, and also that there were a 
number of other lots within the bounds of the donated surveys 
not numbered, returned or otherwise appropriated. Under this 
act it was made the duty of the Land Officers to ascertain the 
number of such lots of each description that remained un- 
drawn and not otherwise aprpopriated or which, having been 
drawn, had not been applied for within the time prescribed 
by law, and to cause numbers corresponding to each lot to 
be made and placed in the wheels from which they were to 
draw on application being made to them by persons entitled 
to the donation. Acting under this law the Board of Property, 
which by this section of the same act was given the same 
powers relative to donation lands that it exercised over other 
lands within the Commonwealth, decided to include the lots 
of the "Struck District," and put corresf>onding numbers in 
the wheels. These numbers remained in the wheels until the 
act of March 25, 1805, directing them to be withdrawn and 
not again put .in. During the years 1803-4-5, many of the lots 
had been drawn, and patents for them granted, in some in- 
stances causing trouble and litigation. Presuming the lands 
in the eastern part of the district to be vacant and open to 
settlement and improvement under the act of April 3, 1792, 
many settlers had gone .into the locality and made valuable 



DONATION LANDS. 601 

improvements that interfered with the surveys of the donation 
lots, thus of course involving patentees of donation land 
and actual settlers in disputes and expensive law-suits. To 
prevent such undesirable and unfortunate results the act of 
1805 was passed. The tickets were taken out of the wheels 
as directed by the law, and the undrawn lots of the "Struck 
District" thereafter remained a part of the unappropriated 
lands north and west of the Ohio and Allegheny rivers and 
Conewango Creek, open to sale and settlement. 

In order to enable the Land Officers and the Board of Prop- 
erty to execute the duties enjoined upon them by the act of 
1802, the Secretary of the Commonwealth was directed to 
transfer all records relating to the donation lands to the Sur- 
veyor General's Office, and by the same act the Board of 
Property was authorized to direct patents to be issued to the 
widow, heir or heirs of any deceased officer or soldier on 
satisfactory proof of their right being made. 

The act of March 24, 1785, seemed to require the beneficiaries 
under its provisions to participate in the drawing in person. 
To do so was no doubt a serious inconvenience to many, 
while others, who could not afford the expense of a journey 
to Philadelphia, would be entirely deprived of the benefits of 
the act. Be this as it may, it was soon discovered that many 
persons had not received their land and in consequence of 
this condition of the distribution, the Legislature by an act 
passed April C, 1792, directed the land officers, on the second 
day of July follow.ing, to draw lots for every person entitled 
to donation land, who had not received the same, agreeably 
to the list submitted by the Comptroller to the Supreme Execu- 
tive Council, the same as if the person thus entitled to land 
was present; and patents were to be granted to such persons 
or their legal representatives as in other cases. It was also 
ascertained that there were other persons who had served in 
the Pennsylvania Line entitled to the donation, but whose 
names, from some unexplained cause, did not appear in the 
list prepared by the Comptroller General in 17S6. To remedy 
this defect and enable these persons to receive their quota' of 
land, the Legislature passed an important act relating to them 
on the 17th of April, 1795. Thi.s act directed the Comptroller 
General to prepare a complete list of such persons entitled to 
lands whose names were not included in the first list, together 
with their rank and the quantity of land each should re- 
ceive. This list was to be transmitted to the Surveyor Gen- 
eral, the Receiver General and the Secretary of the Land 



602 * DONATION LANDS. 

Office, and it was made their duty then to employ a suitable 
person to prepare tickets and place them in wheels in the 
same manner as had been done for the first drawing. No 
greater number of tickets were to be placed in the wheel 
than would give to each his quantity of land. After these 
preparations were complete the claimants could attend the 
drawing in person to draw their lots, or authorize an agent to 
draw for them, and for such persons as did not attend in 
I)erson, or by agent, the Surveyor General, Receiver General 
and Secretary of the Land Office were authorized to draw. 
When the drawing was finished a report was to be made to 
the Governor, who was directed to prepare and deliver the 
patents at the expense of the State. The legal representatives 
of deceased persons entitled to the benefits of the act, were 
permitted to draw lots, or have lots drawn for them, the same 
as such deceased persons might have done if living. The time 
allowed for making application under the act was one year 
from its passage, with a proviso that persons "beyond Sea, or 
out of the United States," shall have two years, and persons 
serving in the army of the United States at the time of its 
'passage should have three years, of which the Surveyor Gen- 
eral was to give notice for six weeks in one of the newspapers 
of Philadelphia, and in one in each county of the State in 
which newspapers were published. This was followed by an 
act passed April 11, 1799, providing among other things for the 
authentication of claims by the Comptroller General, Register 
General and State Treasurer, who were to inquire into their 
lawfulness, ascertain whether they remained unsatisfied, and 
in each case to transmit to the Secretary of the Land Office 
a certificate stating whether the claim should be allowed or 
rejected, the certificate to be conclusive. After 1805, aside 
from a number of acts granting donations of land to certain 
individuals for special reasons, there was no further legislation 
in reference to these lands of any importance. A question of 
succession had arisen in the case of an officer who had been 
killed in the service. He was unmarried, and the land that 
fell to his share was claimed by a brother as heir-at-law. 
The Supreme Court decided the claim to be good. The Legis- 
lature then, on the 11th of March, 1809, passed an act that no 
patent was thereafter to issue for donation lands except to 
the widow or children of any deceased officer or soldier who 
died or was killed in service. 

There had been extensions of the time for filing applications, 
year by year, until the final limitation as fixed in the previous 
year, expired on the 1st day of April, 1810. No further appli- 



DONATION LANDS. 0-03 

cations were received after that date though patents for lots 
that had previously been drawn continued to be freely granted 
tor some years longer. After the drawing had been closed, 
there still remained in the wheels a number of undrawn 
tickets, and by the act of March 26, 1813, th» Legislature 
made provision for the sale and settlement of such of them as 
should remain undrawn on the first day of October following. 
It was provided that a person who had made an improvement 
and settlement, resided with his family on the lot three years 
previous to the passing of the act, and cleared, fenced and cul- 
tivated at least ten acres of ground; or a person who should 
after the first day of October make an improvement and 
r.ctual settlement by erecting a dwelling house, reside with a 
family on the lot three years from the date of the settlement, 
and clear, fence and cultivate at least ten acres of ground, 
could receive a patent for such donation lot, by paying into the 
State Treasury at the rate of one dollar and fifty cents an 
acre with interest from three years after the settlement was 
made, and the usual office fees. The settlement first made and 
continwed, or thereafter made and continued, gave an incep- 
tion of title to the person making it. These terms are some- 
what similar in character to those provided in act of April 3. 
1792, for the sale of the unappropriated parts of the lands 
lying within the donation districts, except that the price fixed 
for such lands was only twenty cents an acre. This difference 
in price must be accounted for in the supposition that the 
lands surveyed for the soldiers were far superior in quality 
that the other unappropriated parts of the territory originally 
set apart for donation purposes. The price for the undrawn 
lots continued to be one dollar and fifty cents an acre until 
February 25, 1819, when it was reduced to fifty cents an acre. 
The rate of fifty cents was continued until March 31, 1845. 
at which time the terms were made in all respects the same 
as for other vacant lands in the same districts. 

This concludes the sketch of the Donation Lands of Penn- 
sylvania and the mode in which they were allotted and con- 
veyed to the persons who came within the provisions of the 
grant; and we trust it may prove of interest to the readers of 
this report. The benefaction was a most worthy and patriotic 
one to a line of gallant soldiers who served their country well, 
and endured much in aiding to achieve liberty for the Ameri- 
can Colonies, from which has since grown our mighty and 
beneficent American Republic. The Pennsylvania Line was an 
important factor in producing grant results, and rewards to 
such soldiers were well bestowed.

PENNSYLVANIA 

DEPRECIATION LANDS. 

SURVEYED IN 1783-1785- 



[This paper, prepared by Major Robert H. Foster of the 
Land Office, Department of Internal Affairs, and published in 
the Report of 1892. referring to a subject little understood, is 
given in connection with documents heretofore given.] 



DEPRECIATION LANDS. 



"What do you mean by depreciation lands?" is an inquiry 
that often comes to persons connected with the Land Depart- 
ment of Pennsylvania, and it has thought that a short history 
of these lands would not prove an uninteresting feature. 

During the long war of the American revolution, 1776 to 1783, 
upon the success of which depended the independence of the 
united colonies, the State of Pennsylvania had. for those 
times, a large body of soldiers in the service of the country 
that was known as the "Pennsylvania Line." These troops 
were paid for their service in continental money, which was 
issued in large amounts, and which, in the privations of those 
trying years, and the doubts that surrounded the outcome of 
the struggle, became greatly depreciated in value as compared 
with the value of gold or silver, and with this depreciation, of 
course there follawed an enormous enhancement in the prices 
of evervthing pertaining to the necessities of the people. This 
unavoidable and unfortunate condition of affairs necessarily 
entailed great hardships and annoyance upon all who were 
compelled to receive this almost worthless "promise to pay 
for lands, labor and commodities. It bore with especial hard- 
ships upon the soldiers serving in the field, and was the fruit- 
ful source of so much discontent and dissatisfaction as to seri- 
ously threaten the success of the noble cause in which they 

were engaged. u^^r, 

In this extremity, it may be said, to the honor of Penn- 
svlvania. that the General Assembly o^t^\f f ' f ^^'J 
forethought that was wise, and a patriotism that vas com- 
mendable, began at an early day to consider the a arming 
and critical conditions that confronted the people and Iho 
Luntr ; and to devise, as best they could, -ch measures o 
relief as v;ould tend to arrest threatening dangers. aHa> the 
prevailing discontent of the soldiers and encourage them to 
conlinue with re-invigorated energy, the fight ^orindepen

sumed anything like a definite form in the way of legislative 
enactment. On that day the first act was passed to settle 
upon a basis of gold and silver the depreciation in the pay 
of the Q.fficers and_£ nlisted m en of the Pennsylvania Line. The 
act is entitled "An act to settle and adjust the accounts of 
the troops of the State in the service of the United States," 
etc. The preamble to the act is in these words: "Whereas, 
from a variety of causes, the United States have not been able 
to comply with their engagements heretofore made to the 
officers and private men of the Pennsylvania line, which hath 
occasioned great injury to those troops to whose virtuous ex- 
ertions America is much indebted," and then follows the 
enactment; "Be it therefore enacted, and it is hereby enacted 
by the representatives of the freemen of the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania in General Assembly met, and by the authority 
of the same, That the Supreme Executive Council be and they 
are hereby authorized and directed to appoint three auditors 
to settle the depreciation of the pay accounts of all the officers 
and pnvate men of the Pennsylvania line from the first day of 
January, one thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven, to 
the first day of August, one thousand seven hundred and 
eighty, and the said auditors, or any two of them, are hereby 
empowered and directed to estimate in specie all sums of 
continental money received by the said officers and private 
men on account of their pay within the period aforesaid agree- 
ably to a scale of depreciation hereinafter mentioned and 
contained. 

"And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid, That 
the said auditors, or any two of them, are hereby empowered 
and directed to give to the officers and private men to whom 
pay or (?) such settlement as aforesaid shall be found due, 
certificates specifying the sums due in specie, which certificates 
shall be received and considered as equal to specie in payment 
of the estates hereinafter mentioned and contained." 

Other sections of this act provided that the certificates of 
depreciation should be received as specie in payment of the 
confiscated estates of persons attainted with treason and by the 
officers of the Land Office for unlocated lands. The act also 
provided that moneys received from the sale of confiscated 
estates and paid into the treasury should *be held as a reserved 
fund for the redemption of the certificates. A scale of de- 
preciation, as indicated in the first section of the act. was 
provided and made the rule by which the auditors were to be 
governed in making settlements with the soldiers. The scale 
began with the month of January. 1777, at a rate of l^^ to 1, 



PEXXSYLVAXIA DEPRECIATION LANI>S 76:: 

and ended with the month of July. 17S0. at which time the de- 
preciation as compared with specie had reached the enormous 
difference of 6AV2 to 1. 

The scale by mouths was as follows: 1777 — January, IV2: 
February, l^^; March. 2; April. 21/0; June, 2I/2; J"ly- "'• August, 
3: September, 3; October, 3: November. 3; December. 4. 1778—

ary, AIV2; February. 471/2; March. Glio; April. GIV;,; May, 59; 
June, eiyo; July, 64V2. 

The settlements with the soldiers were made by the auditors 
in accordance with the above scale of depreciation and certi- 
ficates issued to all persons in the service entitled to receive 
them. By subsequent legislation provision was made to re- 
deem these certificates, and all were duly redeemed or paid in 
full at a later period. 

One of the first acts of the General Assembly providing for 
the redemption of the certificates of depreciation issued under 
the act of the eighteenth of December. 1780. was passed the 
twelfth dav of March, 1783. and is found in Smith's Laws of 
Pennsylvania. Vol. ii, page 62. This act provides for the sale 
of certain lands for the purpose of redeeming and paying the 
certificates of depreciation given to the officers and soldiers of 
the Pennsylvania line or their representatives. The preamble 
to this act reads as follows: 

"Whereas, It was enacted by a law of this Commonwealth, 
passed the eighteenth day of December, in ^^e ?;«;; °^ /"; 
Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty, «" ' ^^^ f^/^^ 
to settle and adjust the accounts of the troops of the state in 
he rvice of the United States, and for other purposes tere.n 
mentioned, that the certificates of deprecation gn-en to h 
officers and soldiers of the Pennsylvania line ^^^-'^^^ ^^ 
ceivable at the Land office of this State, equal to gold an 
sUver in the pavment of purchase money of unlocated lands, if 
thrpo:sessor'oi- possessors of the same should thin, proper 
to purchase such lands.'' ^^^ ^^^^ ^^^^,.^ 

The second section of this act proMu-. 
sidv and effectual complying with the 'nten ions of the a. 
a said, there be. and hereby is. located and aid on e- 
tain tract of land as follows: ^^^^^^^'iZXle

mouth of Mogulbug-htitum creek;* thence by a west line to 
the western boundary of the Staie; thence south by said 
boundary to the place of beginning; reserving to the use of 
the State three thousand acres in an oblong of not less than 
one mile in depth from the Allegheny and Ohio rivers, and ex- 
tending up and down the said rivers, from opposite Fort Pitt, 
so far as may be necessary to include same, and the further 
quantity of three thousand acres on the Ohio, and on both 
sides of the mouth of Beaver creek, including Fort Mackin- 
tosh; all of which remaining tract of land, as aforesaid, is 
hereby appropriated as a farther fund for the purpose of le- 
deeming the certificates, aforesaid, and shall for that purpose 
be laid out and disposed of as follows, that is to say, the Sur- 
veyor General of this State shall, according to such directions 
as may be given to him by the Supreme Executive Council, 
cause the aforesaid tract of land to be laid out into lots of 
not less than two hundred acres, nor more than three hundred 
and fifty acres each, numbering the same lots numerically on 
the draught or plot of the country aforesaid; and shall as 
soon as the same, or one hundred lots thereof, are surveyed, 
together with the Secretary of the Land Office and the Re- 
ceiA'er General, proceed to sell the same lots in numerical 
order, at such times and places and under such regulations as 
shall be appointed by the Supreme Executive Council; the 
full consideration bid at such sales shall be paid into the lie- 
ceiver General's office, either in gold or silver or in the cer- 
tificates aforesaid, upon the full payment of which considera- 
tion and the expenses of surveying, together with all fees of 
the different offices, patents shall be issued in the usual form 
to the several buyers or vendees; and the different sums in 
specie that may be paid into the Receiver General's office 
shall be paid over by him to the treasury of this State for the 
purpose of redeeming such certificates as may remain unsat- 
isfied at the end of such sales." 

The lands thus described and set apart for the purpose indi- 
cated in that portion of the act last quoted lie north and west 
of the Ohio and Allegheny rivers, and they comprise at presei;; 
parts of the wealthy and populous counties of Allegheny. 
Armstrong. Butler, Beaver and Lawrence, and embrace an 
area approximately of eleven hundred and twenty-five squa;.' 
miles, or 720,000 acres. 

At the time the act of March 12. 1783. became a law the In- 
dian claim to the section of the State therein described still 



"Now called Mahoning- creek.

existed. The Indians were jealous of their rights and restive 
under ciny real or fancied encroachments that might be made 
upon them, and it required the exercise of great care, caution 
and prudence on the part of the authorities to avert trouble 
on the northern and western boundaries of the State; and this 
they did not always succeed in doing, as many adventurous 
spirits, pushing far out into the unsettled wilderness discov- 
ered to their sorrow. Fortunately, however, by the treaty of 
October. 1784, with the Six Nations, ai Fort Stanwix, and that 
of January. 1785, with the Wyandots and Delawares. at Fort 
Mcintosh, the Indian title was extinguished to all the remain- 
ing territory within the then acknowledged limits of the 
State which had not been previously purchased. The boundaries 
of that great northwestern section of the State covered by this 
purchase may be briefly described as follows: Beginning on the 
east bank of the east branch of the Susquehanna river where 
it crosses the norihern boundarv of the State in Bradford 
county; thence down the East Branch to the mouth of To- 
wanda creek; thence up Towanda creek to its headwaters: 
thence by a straight line west to the headwaters of Pine 
creek; thence down Pine creek to the West Branch of the Sus- 
quehanna; thence up the West Branch to Cherry Tree, in 
Clearfield county; thence by a straight line to Kittanning. on 
the Allegheny river, in Armstrong county: thence down th" 
Allegheny river to the Ohio river; thence down the Ohio river 
to where it crosses the western boundary of the State: thenc*^ 
north along the western boundary to Lake Erie, thence east 
along the northern boundary of the State to the begin- 
ning; and within this territory at the present day we find the 
counties of Tioga, Potter, McKean, Warren, Crawford, Ve- 
nango, Forest, Clarion. Elk, Jefferson, Cameron, Butler. Law- 
rence and Mercer and parts of the counties of Bradford. 
Clinton. Clearfield, Indiana. Armstrong, Allegheny, Beaver 
and Erie. 

It would appear by a letter from President Dickinson to 
the Surveyor General, found in Vol. x, page 53, of the Penn- 
sylvania Archives, that the Supreme Executive Council hesi- 
tated somewhat, through fear of exciting Indian hostility, in 
proceeding immediately to carry into effect the act of March 
12, 1783. The letter reads as follows: "The intelligence re- 
ceived by us of hostilities committed on the frontier of this 
State by Indians induced us to defer giving you direction? 
for surveying and laying out in lots, the tract of land firsi 
described in the law, entitled 'An act for the sale of certain 
lands." etc.. passed on the twelfth day of last March, until w.- 



7ti6 PENXSYLVAXIA DEPPiECIATIOX LAXDS. 

have taken some previous steps for facilitaring the execu- 
tion of that measure, and had reason to liope that circum- 
stances were so far matured as to be moi'e favorable to the 
design of the Legislature." 

It was not long, however, until a different policy prevailed, 
as we are Informed by a letter from Secretary Armstrong 
under date of June 19, 17S3, to General William Irvine, then 
commanding officer of Fort Pitt. General Irvine was informed 
that council had come to a deterrnination to make sale of the 
lands appropriated by law for the redemption of the deprecia- 
tion certificates, and had instructed the Surveyor General "to 
proceed with all possible dispatch with the first steps of that 
business." General Irvine was also informed that the Sur- 
veyor General had been directed to call upon him for advice 
and assistance. 

These instructions to the Surveyor General were given on 
the tenth day of June, 1783, nine days previous to the letter 
to General Irvine, and on the twenty-eighth day of August 
the Supreme Executive Council is informed by a letter of 
John Lukens, S. G., that "agreeable to your order * * * 
a number of surveyois have been appointed and received their 
orders for surveying the land, * * * and are gone forward 
on that service, and the others are ready to follow, so as to 
be there the tenth of next month." In the same letter a re- 
quest was made for an order to General Irvine "to afford them 
a guard while in that service (or at least while they run the 
west and north boundaries of said tract), as they look on it 
not very safe to proceed without." 

The depreciation tract was divided into five districts, as 
represented in the accompanying map, and a surveyor ap- 
pointed for each — Alexander McClean for the first district, 
Daniel Leet for the second district, Nathaniel Breading, Wil- 
liam Alexander. Samuel Nicholson, Ephraim Douglass and 
Samuel Jones for the third district, sub-divided into five 
parts; James Cunningham for the fourth district, and Joshua 
Elder for the fifth district. 

The surveys in these districts were begun in the summer 
of 1785, and were not all completed until the July of 1789. In 
addition to the separate surveys of each tract, there are on 
file in the department complete connected drafts of the surveys 
of each district, except that of Mr. McClean's, and it is not 
known why a draft of his district was not returned. 

In Daniel Leot's district. No. 2, there are two connected 
drafts — one cojitaining 143 tracts and the other 224 tracts — the 
first surveys— 143 tracts — were made during the months of 



PENXSYLVANIA DEPRECIATION EANDS. T/.T 

April, May, June and July, 1785, and the others during tht- 
summer of ITSt:. In Nathaniel Breeding's part of district 
Nc. 3, the connectPd draft contains 12l» tracts, the surveys oi 
which were made in the month of June, 1785. In William 
Alexander's part of district No. 3 the connected draft contains 
139 tracts, surveyed during the months of June and July, 17b5. 
In Samuel Nicholson's part of district Nc. 3 there are two 
connected drafts— one containing 77 tracts, surveyed in 1785, 
and the other containing 05 tracts. Time of survey not given. 
In Ephraim Douglas' part of district No. 3 the connected draft 
contains 215 tracts, surveyed in 1786. In Samuel Jones' part 
of district No. 3 there are three connected drafts— the .first 
containing 37 tracts, the second 63 tracts and the third 48 
tracts, making in all 148 tracts, the time of surveys not given 
in the first two. The 48 tracts were surveyed in July, 178it. 
In James Cunningham's district No. 4 the connected draft 
shows 485 tracts. These tracts were surveyed during the 
months of July, August, September and October, 1785, and 
the months of May, June. August, September and October. 
1787. In Joshua Elder's district No. 5 there are two conencted 
drafts— one containing 338 tracts, surveyed during the summer 
of 1785, and the other containing 193 tracts, surveyed in the 
months of August and September, 1786. 

Bv the act of Assembly, the Surveyor General, the Secretary 
of the Land Office and the Receiver General of the State were 
authorized as commissioners under the direction of the Su- 
preme Executive Council to proceed to sell in numerical order 
the lots as soon as the drafts or plots of the same, or -one 
hundred lots thereof were returned." The surveys first re- 
turned were those of a part of Daniel Leefs district No^ 2. 
The sales were to be made by auction and the question then 
arose as to whether the land should be sold by the acre or 
by the tract. The Supreme Executive Council directed the 
Land Office, by a letter dated the eighteenth of November, 
1785 "first * * * that the land should be sold by the 
acre'; second, that the city auctioneer be employed to sell them 
and. third, that no warrant directing a return of ^"--J ^^^ ' 
issue." With these preliminary details arranged, the office 
designated in the act proceeded under -f^^"^^';"^,;/';',,'; '

acres, and brought £13,987 14s., an average price slightly more 
than eight shillings five pence an acre. The bids varied 
from fifty shillings an acre down to six pence an acre, but 
as the price then fixed by law for lands within the purchase 
of 1784 was thirty pounds per cent., or six shillings an acre, 
the average of the sale was regarded as very fair. The sale 
of the tracts in Daniel Leet's district was followed on the 
twenty- eighth and thirtieth days of the same month by sales 
of 126 tracts, containing 32,034 acres in Nathaniel Breading's 
part of district No. 3. bringing an aggregate sum of £4,04* 
17s. 3d. The prices at which these tracts were sold varied 
from twenty shillings six pence an acre down to six pence, an 
average of about two shillings six and one-half pence an 
acre. The low average of this sale, as compared with the 
average in Leet's district, seems not to have been entirely sat- 
isfactory to the commissioners charged with the duty of con- 
ducting them. 

In a letter dated the sixth of December, 1785, to President 
Franklin, of the Supreme Executive Council, in relation to 
this sale, they say that "when the amount of sales in this dis- 
trict is added to that of Leet's the whole will average only 
5s. 6d. per acre, being a less sum than is now received in 
the Land Office for lands in the new purchase. Perhaps, your 
honors will esteem it eligible to postpone the further sale of 
these lands till towards the beginning of the next session of 
the assembly, and then to begin with a district above Fort 
Pitt, either Cunningham's or Elder's, both being very good 
districts." It is not known whether council was infiuenced 
by the representation of the commissioners or not. but no fur- 
ther sales were made until the month of March, 1786. On 
the first, second and eleventh days of that month, 139 tracts 
in William Alexander's part of district No. 3, containing 
32,153 acres, were sold at prices that varied from eight shil- 
lings an acre down to three pence an acre, bringing in the 
aggregate £1,717 17s. lOd., the average being a little more than 
cne shilling an acre. On the eighth and ninth days of the 
same month, 142 tracts in Samuel Nicholson's part of district 
No. 3, containing 33.501 acres, were sold at prices which varied 
from fifteen shillings nine pence an acre down to three pence 
an acre, bringing in the aggregate £2,791 4s. lOd., an average 
of slightly above one shilling seven pence an acre. From the 
eleventh to the twenty-second day of March, 309 tracts in 
James Cunningham's district No. 4, containing 71.309 acres, 
were sold at prices that varied from sixteen shillings six pence 
v.n acre down to three pence an acre, bringing in the aggre- 



PEXXSYLVAXIA DEPRECIATIOX LAXD.S, TC'.. 

gate I5.G72 3s. lOd.. also an average of a little more than one 
shilling seven pence an acre. On the tweniv-seventh day of 
the same month there was a sale of 47 tracts, containing 
13,047 acrp.-, in Alexander McClean's district No. 1. at prices 
that ran from nine shillings three pence an acre down to 
three pence an acre, bringing in the aggregate £984 lis. 4d., 
an average of one shilling six i>ence an acre. The sales at 
Philadelphia were then suspended for a time and were resumed 
at Lancaster, on the fifth day. of tne following mouth of June, 
when 63 tracts in Samuel .Jones' part of district No. 3 were 
sold, these tracts containing 13.114 acres, and the prices re- 
ceived for them varied from nineteen shillings nine pence 
an acre down to three pence an acre. In the aggregate they 
brought f 1.41 4 7s. 3d., the average being slightly above two 
shillings two pence an acre. The next sales were again held 
in Philadelphia, where, between the sixth and twenty-seventh 
days of September, 33G tracts in Joshua Elder" s district No. 5. 
containing S2.337 acres, were sold at prices that varied from 
seventeen shillings six pence down to three pence an acre. 
These tracts brought an aggregate sum of £9.439 5s. od., an 
average slightly above two shillings three and one-half pence 
an acre. A very large number of the sales in this district 
were set aside by order of the Supreme Executive Council, as 
appears by the recoid book in this department. In March. 
17SG, by order of council, there was also a resale of 7" tracts 
of Nathaniel Breeding, part of district No. 3, the original pur- 
chasers having failed to comply with the terms of sale. These 
tracts contained 17,S74 acres and they brought at this second 
sale an aggregate sum of £487 2s. 7d.. an average of a little 
more than six pence an acre. After the sales of the tracts of 
Elder's district in September, 17StJ, no further effort was made to 
dispose of any of these lands until the month of March.' 1787. 
A return of 200 additional tracts had been recived from Daniel 
Leet, and the commissioners were then directed to sell them. 
The sale was held, but the results fell far short of the expec- 
tations of the officials. The repnit of these sales, or of such 
tracts as were offered, made to council by Francis Johnston. 
under date of March 12. 1787. reads as follows: "I beg leave 
to report to Councils that pursuant to public notice given, 
I proceeded to the sale of the residue of Leet's district of de- 
preciation lands at the Old Coffey House on the 7lli inst.. but 
to my great surprise and mortification, the 27 lots which 
we -c sold on that day averaged only i'> 8s. 4(1. per 100 acres. 
The sales I thru postponed till the loth following when but 
three lots were sold at the rate of 25s. per 100 acres only. 
49~3-",d .«er.

cr 3d. per acre. Upon the whole I cannot help thinking that 
until the operation of the present low sales of the donation 
lands shall cease, no more public lands so remote from the 
the city can be sold at auction to any advantage. 

No sales were made of the tracts surveyed and returned 
by Ephraim Douglas in part of district No. 3, and all sales of 
depreciation lands by auction ceased with the last sale of 30 
tracts in Leet's district made in March, 1787. The following 
recapitulation in tabular form shows the number of tracts sold 
In each district, by whom surveyed, the aggregate quantity 
in acres sold, and the amount which the lands brought in

The general average per acre of the above sales is slightly 
in excess of two shillings six and one-half pence, or about 
thirty-four cents, and it was no doubt the low price offered for 
these lands, as compared with the price fixed by law (then 
£30 per hundred or 6 shillings per acre") that determined the 
Supreme Executive Council to abandon the method of selling 
them by public sale. 

The sum given in the statement, £40,358, does not correctly 
represent the amount received by the State, but is considerably 
above it. This is owing to the fact that many of the pur- 
chasers failed to make payment, and for that cause a large 
number of the sales were not completed, and consequently 
were set aside by order of council. The books of the land 
office show that the amount actually received was £32,927, 
which, at the rate of $2.66% per pound, represents $87,805.33, 
and patents were duly granted to all purchasers who made 
payments as required by the terms of sale. 

The lands within the depreciation district that remained 
unsold were subsequently opened to actual settlement and

improvement under the provisions of the act of April 4, 1792. 
entitled "An act for the sale of vacant lands within this Com- 
monwealth," and of later, enactments, especially those of 1811 
and 1813. 

The Indians had continued to be exceedingly troublesome on 
the western boundary and it was not until after General 
Wayne's treaty with them in 1795, that it became safe for set- 
tlers with their families to enter upon the lands north and 
west of the Ohio and Allegheny rivers and Conewango creek. 

But special provision was made in the acts mentioned for 
the settlement and improvement of such parts of these lands 
as had not been appropriated to public and charitable use, 
and as soon as the western frontier of the State had become 
pacified, and there was no longer fear of Indian incursions, 
there was a rapid influx of settlers to occupy them. The price 
fixed in 1792 for lands north and west of the Ohio and Alle- 
gheny rivers and Conewango creek was seven pounds ten 
shillings, or twenty dollars per hundred acres, and it has 
remained the same to the present time. This rate, however, 
does not apply to the undrawn donation lots.
