      From Deed Book R. L. pp. 56 and 57:
      May 4th, 1835, Elizabeth Blackburn, Sarah Jane Blackburn, Richard Scott Blackburn,Elizabeth Sinclair Blackburn, and John Sinclair Blackburn deed to Robert Marshall a tract of land containing 285 acres "beginning near the mouth of a small branch called Fox branch, running south 68* [sic] West 82 poles"--" thence north 62* West 276 poles to Bull Run thence down said Run with the several meanderings thereof etc". The plat of survey by William Kinchelow Nov. 12th,1805 gives it as 267 acres, surveyed for Col. Thomas Blackburn. Robert Ratcliffe by a survey of same Feb. 1835 makes it 285 acres. The parties to this deed are evidently the heirs of Thomas Blackburn Jr., son of Col. Thomas Blackburn of Ripon Lodge. The first, Elizabeth, is without doubt, the widow of Thomas Jr., the other, Sarah Jane, etc., are the children.
