History of Forest and Stream Club Road


Modern day Forest and Stream Club Road runs almost entirely on land orignally contained in two pre Revolutionary War land patents named TRURA and GORSUCH'S LUCK
Henry Munday had Robert Ownings survey in 1738, a tract of land consisting of 158 acres and had it patented, in 1741, TRURA. It was resurveyed in 1747 and enlarged to 844 acres. TRURA laid around Detour, mainly in Frederick County, with 200 acres in Carroll County in the area of the Forest and Stream Club Road.
David Gorsuch purchased a grant of land 320-525 acres on the Monocacy River called GORSUCH'S LUCK in 1761.
Our present day farm that includes the residence street with number 8166 contains roughly equal amounts of land from these two patents.

Research Focus of This Page

The original focus of this page was around the Sayer family that lived on our farm during and after the US Civil War
This research lead to the discovery that our present day farm hasn't had the same property lines
(minus land on the south side of the road) for over 150 years as was once believed.
A long research tangent into land records and owners ensued. The link below is my crude notes along the way:
