The Jacob Shidler mentioned in the deed, owned land on Daniels Run, so it is thought that the land described in this deed is near East Marianna, in West Bethlemen Twp., where Dianels Run flows into Tenmile Creek. Part of the creek can be seen on this TopoZone map, although it is not known for certain exactly where the Meek land was located. A transcription is also available in Acrobat format.

Clay.  This Deed records that transaction.  The sale was made in connection with Mr. Clay building Lake-O-Springs.  Brown family oral tradition has it that Marshall Clay and Will Brown agreed that the Brown family and Brown family decedents would have unrestricted free access to Lake-O-Springs in perpetuity, in exchange for the $100 sale price charged by Will and Maude Brown.  These terms are not documented in the deed but they are obliquely referenced in the June 14th entry of the 1920 Journal kept by Will Brown..  The sale price was recorded as a fictitious amount of $1 in the deed.
