    This is the only record found to date of Andrew Job Jr. in Cecil County, Maryland.

    "Note that there is an abbreviation after Browne's and Beeson's names - Con - which stands for "condition". This record has to do with the issue of whether they lived in Pennsylvania or Maryland. In 1732 the Governor of Maryland and William Penn's sons drew a line in between the two "states". The issue wasn't permanently resolved until the Mason-Dixon line was drawn about 1765."

  20. Brick Meeting House, Cecil CO. Maryland - The following is taken from the sign in front of the Meeting House. William Penn set aside Lot No. 30 (500 acres) of the "Nottingham Lots" in 1702 for a"Common" and site of a "meeting House" as a bold move in the soundary line dispute with Lord Baltimore. It has been in continuously used since the first Log Meeting House was errected in 1709. The exact location is 4 miles west of Rising Sun, Cecil County Maryland.

  22. Original Brick from Brick Meeting House - During a visit to The Brick Meeting House in 1999, there was a pile of debris off to one side that looked like it had been cleaned from the crawlspace. In it I found this brick left from the original construction of 1724. I have seen it written that the bricks were imported from England, but also that they were hand-made on-site. Upon close inspection you can see it was hand-made and note where straw was incorporated in the mix. - Submitted by Randy Jobe
