This Indenture made 23 August 1834 between Sarah ROSS (widow of Samuel ROSS,
deceased), Joseph ROSS and Elizabeth his wife, Benjamin ROSS and Ruth his wife,
Timothy ROSS, James MOORE and Pheby [sic] his wife, Joseph MOORE and and Sarah
his wife, Philip SLACK (agent for Sarah SLACK and Delilah SLACK), all of
Washington County, to Samuel ROSS for $1,207.00.
Tract is located on the north fork of Ten Mile Creek in Amwell and West
Bethlehem Townships. Same tract which was conveyed to Samuel ROSS,
deceased (the father of the foregoing parties) by Aaron Van Camp and Mary, his
wife, on 14 December 1804.
In Samuel ROSS's Will, he directed this property be disposed of when the
youngest heir reached 21 years of age.

North Fork of Ten Mile Creek

* This is a note for anyone researching this line. When I researched in
Frederick County Maryland for John LANE, Sr., Joseph BAKER, his father-in-law,
Henry REPP (relationship to BAKER & LANE is unknown at this point), and
other families in the Pipe Creek and Beaver Dam areas (now Carroll County
Maryland), there was another LANE I was following to see if he was my John LANE
Sr's father. The LANE male had died and if I remember right, part of the
estate went to a Sarah? (maybe it was a Delilah?).... she married a Philip
SLACK. But I lost track of them and where they went (they seemed to just
"disappear.") This was between 1800 and 1810 -- I don't have my
records out at the moment. Since many Brethren families were moving
to Washington County Pennsylvania between 1800 and 1810, and re-reading this
deed today, I wonder if the SLACKs in the above Deed are the same ones who were
in Frederick County Maryland records? This needs further investigation.
I wrote on this: "Are one of these persons a ROSS? Sarah SLACK or Deliah
SLACK? Is one a LANE?"
I also wrote on this Deed, "see Deed Book S-p.494, dated 2 March 1804,
Recorded 14 December 1804.
