One Quick Handwriting Transcription Challenge Every Day-for the genealogist in you
This was in Harford County, Maryland, but try to see if you can read the writing without googling it ;)
Dan is the easy part. Last name perhaps Hotsell? It's a toughie!
Danl hott esq
I had to cheat, so I won't give the name. I used to live in Harford Co., but it was more recently than Dan. I still can't figure out what's written after the name.
Danl Lott Esq
Danl Scottis the name.What's after the name is admittedly difficult to read, but the first part of it looks similar to the "S" in "Scott" and likely is "SHC" for Surveyor of Harford County.
Good thinking about the SHC!
