Also in 1844 Roderick O'Connor petitioned for "lot fifty North Side of New Ireland Road" and that "the said Thomas Beck chopped down about one acre of the same but did not ever erect any building... and within a short time after abandoned all possession or claim to the same..."
Thomas Beck petitioned again in 1846 for an unsurveyed 100 acre lot "on the south side of Land now petitioned for by Pete Olsten on the East sie of the Road from New Ireland to Salmon River."
