      Inventory: Liber A, pp 167-169, 6 Apr 1779

      Records for Thomas & William Pack, Richard's nearest NOK show they too gave service in the 1777 and signed the Oath of Fidelity 1777-78 in Montgomery County Md. William owned no land , but Thomas held about 122 acres land on west side of the Muddy Branch, part of a tract called "The Joseph" The muddy branch meanders between Rockville and Gaithersburg south west into the Potomac River. Perhaps William and Richard lived near or on this land. Location of Rock Creek church at that time, could have been anywhere along the rock creek that runs from MD into the Potomac at what is now Georgetown.
