Littlepage v. Fowler

"January 27, 1783. J.C.L. enters twenty thousand acres of land on twenty Treasury warrants, No. 8,859, &c., beginning at the mouth of a creek falling into the main fork of Licking, on the north side, below some cedar cliffs, and about thirty-five miles above the Upper Blue Licks and running from said beginning up the north side of Licking, and bounding with the same as far as will amount to ten miles when reduced to a straight line, thence extending from each end of said reduced line a northerly course at right angles to the same for quantity."
