|DOCUMENT RELATING to the CONFISCATION
of the PROPERTY of JOHN YOUNG - 1779
|When John Young was compelled to leave his farm with the Rebels breathing own his
neck, the his farm was auctioned off to one Johannes Seeber on 1 September 1779 by
the committee in charge of forfeited lands. After the dust had settled, the house was
rebuilt and the farm brought back into production. There is a picture of the home built on
the property in a Montgomery County history publication. This author (DKF) observed
the well on the property - which was all that was left of the farm in the 1980s.
