About This Item

1814. Near Fine. On 25 March 1814 Margaret Cauffman of Philadelphia, gentlewoman, sold to Isaac Overholtzer of Norriton Township, Montgomery County, for $650 a lot of woodland of almost 5 acres in Providence Township, Montgomery Co., on the road leading from the Germantown and Perkiomen turnpike and on the Norristown Road. Signed by Margaret Cauffman; witnesses Sarah A. Cauffman, Catharine Wiseman, and Alexander J. Uhlyn; and Delaware County Judge Mark Willcox. Mark Willcox (1743-1827) was the son of Thomas Willcox (1689-1779), the founder of Ivy Mills, which produced the paper used for early currency of the United States. He continued to run the paper mill after his father's death in 1779; he also served as an associate judge for Delaware County from 1791 to 1823. His second wife was Anna Mary Cauffman, a sister of Margaret Cauffman. In Near Fine Condition; 1 x 10 cm. section lacking at lower left-hand corner, with minor loss of writing; otherwise, clean and bright.
