at stated time and place it is being sold an unshared half of wood land in Todorus Taunschip, which borders on the land of Friedrich Beißelmann (?), Daniel Diehl, Jacob Schetler and others, 82 Uckers (?) and 17 Ruthes big.

- Also-
A piece of land as big as 27 Uckers (?), bordering on the same mentioned land, with a house block and barns, approximately a 4 Uckers big meadow, fruit trees and a beautiful creek with water near the house. This would be a good place for waterworks. The sale will take place at 10 am on said day and the conditions will be announced by Georg Beißelmann and William Ehrhart. November 20, 1829.

Not a 100% sure about the correct spelling of names and places because of the capital letters in the beginning. The guy's surname is either Beißelmann or Geißelmann. And the place looks like Eodorus Taunschip or Todorus Taunschip to me, I googled both and couldn't really find anything. Also what I read as "Ucker" could be acre since I've never heard this word before in Germany.

That would be Codorus Township. Hanover, PA area.

Surname is Geisselmann. Funny looking letter in middle of surname is a German representative for the double s. I have seen this before in other surnames and German place names.
Ha, I completely forgot that other people might not know our "ß". Thanks for adding that.
My moms side of my family is German. Surname is Geiselman. We come from the ancient (city) state of Silesia that is now parts of Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
The word you have read as Uckers is actually Ackers.
