Dont' know if this helps, but I have alittle note about land you reference. Burkholder Family history record shows "It states that Adam Burkholder, who came in 1750 located in Franklin Co.. in 1767 Adam located in Labanon Co. in 1750. Sold land to Michael Wolf in 1767 for 100 pounds. Gurtiss Grubb, owener of the iron mines bought it in 1779 for 1000 pounds. Whether for iron or charcoal is not known. Adam Burkholder located in Lotterkenny township, Franklin County, where his decendants are found today. That was so far from his Wife's people that he sold her interest in her father's Yost Gingrich, estate. He is described as a wheel-wright. His will is file no. 512 in franklin county court house."

I don't really have much more but send a message back if you have questions.
