Needed: A New Family for Holcomb Rock

A new chapter for Holcomb Rock:

My children's father, Tom Berkeley, and I saved Holcomb Rock in 1983. We scraped the exterior paint, treated the clapboards with a mixture of linseed oil and turpentine before painting it, fixed the holes in the walls and the floors, added heat, added plumbing.

My children grew up there. Now at least part of the work and much of the work I had hoped to complete needs doing. The house is much too big for either of us, and is silent without the sound of play and visitors.

Our chapter at Holcomb Rock is over, and now we are looking for the next family for a house that has always had families and has out survived all but a few.

Early Real Estate Records

At the time, I was just sure I knew the source of each research item, so didn't record . But this set of records shows Palatine's land as being near Judy's Creek (Judith's), not the Flaxpatch or Plantpatch creek which is shown on a plat done when he died.

Note also the land from Lafayette Tinsley which was sold to James Harris 

Later on, notice that James Harris bought land atCold CCamp. More about that later.
