A map in 1822 shows the same land held by Charles COULTER in 1789, to be in the hands of Andrew Coulter BRADFORD and Thomas BRADFORD.

NOTE: I have transcribed this using voice recognition, and even though I have trolled through it looking for errors, this does not mean that the following transcription is error free. It is the best that I can do at this time – given other calls on my time. I have yet to run down information on many of the names – but have left room in footnotes to add it later.

[15] Samuel MOFFETT  NOTE: An Anne MAFFETT married Thomas COULTER (1658-1754) – so there was at least a familial connection. I believe that it was his sister Mary who married Samuel DONALDSON
