2. Deer Creek Hundred Taxes for 1737 John Cooke, Constable
Francis Jenkins Thos Jenkins--2
If you look at a present day map, find Baltimore City. Surrounding Baltimore City, you will see Baltimore County. If you look north of Baltimore County, you will see Harford County. In the upper right hand corner of Harford County you will see a small section bordered by Broad Creek and Pennsylvania. The next creek you see is Deer Creek. It starts near the present day Pennsylvania border and goes east past the present day town of Darlington, Maryland. Deer Creek is divided into three section. Next to the Pennsylvania Boarder it is called Deer Creek Upper. Deer Creek Middle is in the middle. Deer Creek Lower is near the present day Darlington.
It is interesting that Thomas Cullen's Will mentions the following:
cousin William Jinkins Joseph, son of Joseph Jinkins William Jinkins to pay to his bro. Thomas
I suspect a trip to Harford County is called for at this point.
