    3. David, Thanks for you reply. I was aware that Fulton Co. was formed from Bedford about 1850, so should not have said I expected to find records in Fulton County. The reason I mentioned Fulton County is the description on the survey application puts the location as, Dublin Twp, Bedford and Fulton Cos. The description also states, Jointing the north branch of Little Aughwick Creek, below the land of John Beard, in the Burnt Cabin Valley. So I hope to find out more about this specific area of Fulton County on my trip.

I meant to say the BEDFORD County courthouse. > > > > ------------------------------- > To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to PAFULTON-request@rootsweb.com with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message
