Brick Meeting House and Cemetery

Brick Meeting House and Cemetery

It has become a 'dream' for many Job(e) researchers to visit Chester and Cecil Co., Pennsylvania where the early Andrew Job family once lived and where the Thomas Vernon Job group remained for several more years. As our cousins visit these places, many take photographs and sent them to me. I would like to share these with you.

The photos below were all taken in recent years.

William Penn set asideLot 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.

Close-Up of of Original Brick

Actual Brick - 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.
