veyor, & myself in the rear of Course, in all six men; George Rinehart a neighbor sells me 2 Cheeses to weigh 24 lb—pays Rinehart $4.00 for the Cheese. 12th/Month 3rd of the week and 3rd of the month. This morning the Mountains all Cover'd with Snow Compleatly & more a Coming, which Compleatly puts an end to our Expedition to the 1900 acres. Rinehart returns me my money that I gave him for the 2 Cheese. Too stormy to turn out. Peter Bowman & Nathan Ashby two great Woodsman."

Nathan Ashby was a Captain in the War of 1812, a son of the pioneer William Walton Ashby. Felix G. Robinson and the writer visited his grave at Mt. Hope near Terra Alta, W. Va., in June 1958—also the site of Nathan's tavern where is located today Hopemont Sanitarium.

That Uriah Brown was able to purchase from farmer Rinehart twenty-four pounds of cheese indicates an advanced degree of husbandry. George Rinehart must have had an extensive farm industry. His nine children were grown up by the time of Brown's visit. One can imagine the variety of things that skillful hands could create out of such a virgin abundance as the glades and mountains of Garrett County offered these assiduous people.
