On 19 Mar 1795, John HAVNER of Frederick County sold to Paul CROUSE
(CROOSE, also CRUSE, CRUISE) of Frederick County, Maryland, 48 acres
called Resurvey on Bedford.
Although Paul had a will, when he died @ 1796, he had purchased this land
after he wrote his will and this land had not been settled.

- a boy Josay b/ 1778,
- a girl July b/ 1775
who were to be freed (boys at 21 and girl at 18).

Sr and Jr and John RICHARDS.
Case was settled 19 Jan 1818.
This appears to be in the Westminster area of now Carroll County.
