Jesse Martin owned property outright as early as 1786 in Monongalia County, (West) Virginia [1]. In 1792, authorized ferries included one from Jesse Martin's lands to lands of David Scott.[2] I do also give and bequeath to my oldest son Jesse Martin my river tract of land containing four hundred acres and including the mouth of Crooked run and Bounded by the Monongalia and my home place to him and his heirs forever.
