      Property ownership:

      In the history of Washington County, it reveals that Captain Gabriel Cox, of state of Virginia, who lived at present James Chappel in 1773, issued titles of cer­tificates to~ three Jefferson settlers.

      In consequence of certificates at Cox’s Fort, is as follows: Richard McMachen 360 acres Monongahela River in Allegheny County. Samuel Heath 333 acres, no date given. Captain Henry Heath 203 acres. no date given. Also 400 acres on Water of Allegheny River. Other names were also listed and recorded. It should be remembered that tills list does not embrace all the Virginia titles in Washington and Allegheny counties. only those made at the period and in that part of Washington county that lay in Old Yohogania County.

      A warrant for the 318 acre tract was first issued under “Virginia entry” to Richard McMahon (later spelled McMachen) who had the tract surveyed on July 13, 1769, but never had it patented.

      On June 4, 1770 McMachen sold the tract to James Bruce for 100 pounds in Pennsylvania currency. Under the bill of sale the land was described as “a certain tract of land lying on the west side Of the Monongahela cornered, joining Macfarlane on the south and William McMachen on the north, being a half mile on the river and a half mile back.”

      On March 17, 1783 Benjamin Bentley purchased the tract from James Bruce and George Bruce (no record of title can be found in George Bruce’s name). The land at that time sold for 40 shillings in gold or silver or its value in good mer­cantile whiskey. It is at this point that the tract is described as being in Notting­ham township.
