ALEXANDER, BREVARD, MCKNITT, WALLACE posted by Jean Capps on Thursday, July 3, 1997
I am looking for information about a group of families who immigrated to Somerset Co, MD in the late 17th Century. John McKNITT had a plantation named "Glasgow" in the Nanokin neigborhood near Pocomoke on a tract of land called "The Strand". Jean BREVARD was a Huguenot who had escaped to Northern Ireland and immigrated with members of the ALEXANDER, WALLACE, and McKNITT families on the ship "Welcome". I would like to know where they put into port. All of these families were active members of the Presbyterian community in the Manokin area. Several members of these families moved to the Elk River Area of Cecil Co. MD. The McKnitt home in Cecil Co was also called Glasgow. and adjoined Samuel Alexander's properties called "Sligo" and "Bullens Range" and a tract called "High Spaniola". Their descendents went on to Rowan Co, later Iredell Co in NC and were very active in the Revolutionary war.

The Mill

Today's mill is the third one built on this site. The first two were built by George Frederick Bollinger, who came to this area in 1797 from North Carolina. He received a 640-acre land grant from Don Louis Lorimer, the Spanish commandant at Cape Girardeau. In return for the land, Bollinger agreed to develop the land and to bring more settlers from the east. He returned to North Carolina and in 1800, brought 20 families including six of his brothers and their families back to settle along the banks of the Whitewater River.
