The 1792 survey plat in deed A2:186, which divided Parcel 1.1, shows the locations of nine Parcel 1.1 leaseholders. There are 10 house-like symbols, nine with name labels, and a circle marked “Mill.” The left side of the drawing is damaged and does not show the west-most one-fifth of parcel 1.1. An undated similar drawing is in the Francis Asbury Dickins Papers 1 It shows the missing western area but differs in handwriting, and so may be copied from the original. The same labeled locations are marked, plus four additional name-labeled houses are shown in the western area.
