Deed book # 17, pg. 508

Deed -1- covers part of lot 22 , second division of the land of Newport Twp. Luzerne Co. Pa. , the consideration of $380.00

Deed -2- covers this same part of lot # 22 and also lot #14 , received by Solomon Dotter as a patent from the Commonwealth of Pa. The consideration here is $1600.00. In these deeds , all parties concerned lived in Newport Twp.

I am searching for information on where Solomon died in Luzerne Co. and where he was burried. Also any info on what his wife Catherine's maiden name was and her family. Henry Dotter's wife Susanna also.
The only clue I have is that there is a record of Adam H. Dotter son of George & Anna, died Nov. 8, 1851 age 2 yrs. 5 mos 17 days , buried in the Newport Twp. Cemetery. Adam Henry Dotter b. May, 1849 at Newport Twp. Luzerne Co. Pa. He was named for Anna's (Bridinger) father Adam Gridinger and George's father Henry Dotter. ( mentioned above)

Henry purchased his first tract of land in Portage Co. Oh. while living in Luzerne Co. Pa. in 1842. I have listed what I have for him in that area of Ohio, as someone may be trying to find out where he went from Pa.
