In reply to Emily and Atherton posters, in regard to Francis Atherton. It appears my ancestor Francis Blakeley sold his Middle Wheeling Creek land to Francis Atherton. And, he relocated to Ohio where he enlisted in theWar of 1812 in Capt John Greer's Company with Francis Atherton. I also have reason to believe he may have married either Francis's mother or daughter. Can you tell me who Francis Xavier Atherton married or where he resided in Ohio. I would be happy to send you a copy of his deed, if you are interested.
