  • Notes 
    • "from whom John Selby Goslee bought his homestead"

      Docket p. 75 notes:

      "Margaret Bothum - "Bally Shannie" - (G.W. Hearn place & Levin, Selby Mills place) before 1898 when destroyed by fire, had a residence, the exact image in design, pattern and color of paint, of the old Hitch home which, records above indicate, Ezekiel Hitch was living in 1690." 

      JSH comments on Docket notes above: a. Does this mean this data is from Margaret Whittington Bothum?  b. not sure where 'Levin' comes in. c. Could this be the namesake for W.L. Howard and Marguerite Freeney's Balla Shannon? [2]
