Re: Pendleton Co., WV land grant map Adam Lough's lands near Mallow, Conrad, Seybert and Miller grants

Susan,

I've added two images at the bottom of this post. The first shows the actual locations of Adam Lough's lands (based on working out from parcels we had been able to anchor so allow 1/4 mi. in any direction for error). George Lough's parcels are superimposed but probably should be a little further south and east. The second map shows the earliest grants on Deer Run - the 88 acres labeled "Jacob Seybert" was the land that Adam Lough purchased from Nicholas Seybert (eldest son and land heir of Jacob Seybert who was killed at the massacre at Seybert's fort in 1758).

Per your interest in these parcels that you listed:

Lough, Adam 1769 88 acres
Lough, Adam 1787 139 acres

There has been some controversy over the location of Adam Lough's lands which was probably due to Oren F. Morton's data in The History of Pendleton County. I had previously posted information on his lands which I won't recap at this time:

http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.wes...

You should be able to access it by clicking on the hyperlink - if not, try to copy and paste the link. If all else fails, I'll copy it and re-post to this thread.

(There is an error in the final sentence of the 7th paragraph where I indicate that Deer Run crossed Adam Lough's southeast corner - that should read "southwest corner".)

Adam Lough's lands in what is now Pendleton County:

1) Adam Lough's 88 acres (from Nicholas Seybert):

I've shown the Deer Run community and Kline in the images so you can use a google map which shows the road between the two towns for sense of perpective of the locations of the properties.

Misc. data regarding the 2nd image - Jacob Seybert patented the 88 acres between the time he lived at the Upper Tract (on a land contract) and when he purchased the land in the Dyer settlement where he built his fort which was destroyed by the Indians in 1758. My ancestor, Michael Mallow (aka Mallo), lived on the 470a property for several years. His family also were victims (taken prisoner) at the Seybert's fort massacre as was the family of Ulrich Conrad. Mallow and Conrad sold out and Seybert's 88a was eventually sold to Adam Lough. It is most likely that Michael Mallow's wife, who had been taken by the Indians but returned ca 1761, is buried on the 470a parcel. She died before Mallow sold the property.
