Wisser Family Bits and Pieces

Bits and Pieces is where I'm placing little tidbits of information that may not fit anywhere else but are still interesting enough to share. They could be newspaper clippings, pictures, documents, or just about anything that relates to the Wisser family.



(Quoted from a Wikipedia article about Jacob Hite on 11/6/09)

Pennsylvania Chronicle, Sep 26--Oct 3, 1772:152, advertisement: On Thursday, the 15th of October next, will be sold by Public Vendue, on the premises {pursuant to a decree of the County Court of Frederick, in the colony of Virginia, for satisfying a debt due from Jacob Hite to Richard and Peter Footman, Francis Richardson, Clement Biddle, and Daniel Wisser} A valuable tract of land, containing 3118 Acres {more or less} with the dwelling-house, stores, and buildings thereon erected, situate in Berkeley County, {formerly part of Frederick County} within 13 miles of Winchester, on the great road leading thence from Shweringan's Ferry. The said tract is well watered and improved, being the plantation whereon the said Jacob Hite now lives, and from its situation, and other great improvements and advantages, is esteemed equal to any place in Frederick County.--Also, twenty-seven valuable Negro Slaves [Sep 17, 1772].
