The Deremer-Wilson Farm To clarify who owned the property before the Rittenhouse family came along, I ended up going back to the very first proprietary owner. Oddly enough, Abraham Deremer, the first person to settle on the original 185 acres, failed to record his own deed. So he ends up being the broken link in the chain.
Sometimes in order to understand what is going on with one property, it is necessary to figure out the history of the surrounding ones, and also other properties owned by the people you are researching. In this case, I had to take another look at the farm of Caleb Farley that I had written about long ago. Some corrections were necessary in light of my recent research.
