called "Seat of Beauty". A warrant for this tract of 334 acres was issued in 1734. This plantation remained in possession of the Stephenson-Watson family for more than a century and a half. In 1882 Dr. Nathaniel Watson sold it to the Hon. Simon Cameron in whose family it still remains. From James Stephenson's daughter Hannah, was decended President William McKinley.
