  1. This was in Harford County, Maryland, but try to see if you can read the writing without googling it ;)

  2. Dan is the easy part. Last name perhaps Hotsell? It's a toughie!

    1. 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.

  4. Danl Scott

    is 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.
