BINNS of Baltimore City and Darnall transferred the mortgage to John COOK of Montgomery County. This mortgage was filed at the courthouse where William RITCHIE, Esquire, was clerk and was endorsed by him but was not yet written into the record book before Ritchie died. No one else was authorized to continue in this position until April 1817. About this time, Binns and Darnall obtained possession of the said mortgage and withdrew it from the clerk's office and destroyed it. Afterwards, Binns sold the land to Charles Fenton MERCER of Loudoun County, VA who now possesses the land. Darnall had transferred one of the bonds to Mashach RICHARDS of Montgomery County and he transfered it to Cook. On 29 Jun 1820, Mercer testified Darnall now lived in Ohio. He claimed the whole tract of "Hope Farm" was 986 acres with the four undivided parts being owned by Binns, Raphael DARNALL, William ROSS and John WALKER. That 327 acres were sold to James SIMMONS and 200 acres were leased to Henry KEMP for 6 years, four of which have expired. He further mentions the 'other third' consists of 2,817 acres on the river, Poketaliso in Kenawha Co, VA, estimated at $6,666; also 400-500 acres in the territory now Mississippi estimated at $3,000. He said Binns told him John COOK and Levi PHILLIPS pretended to have right to lands but assured him all notes were paid and there was no lien on said lands and because of this Binns conveyed the Poketaliso land in trust for Richard N. HENDERSON of Leesburg, VA. Mercer also stated there was a lien on the Hope Farm for John DARNALL, brother of Benedict and for the dower of Benedict's wife. He also mentioned a note payable to Benjamin RUSTS of Virginia. Thomas N. BINNS testified soon after the mortgage to Benedict DARNALL, he sold to Darnall a tract of land in Farquier Co, VA which had a valuable merchant mill.

GARROTT sold to Zachariah CLAGETT, lately deceased, a Negro boy named EVANS, then about 13, but noted EVANS had been given to his son, Barton GARROTT by his grand- father, Barton GARROTT, and thus Edward questioned whether he had the power to sell EVANS since his son may want him back when he becomes of age. John P. GARROTT was moving his family to Virginia in 1806 and there was a law against carrying slaves into Virginia. John's written agreement stated Zachariah should be paid $1,000 if his son demanded the return of EVANS. Request was made to return the $100 to Zachariah for the loss of the boy as Erasmus GARROTT as guardian had asked for the return of EVANS; Clagett refused and Erasmus filed suit in Washington County on 11 Apr 1816 when EVANS was 23 and then worth $500. On 12 Nov 1822, Zachariah assigned his interest in EVANS to Edward who is requesting $500 for the loss. Nov 1817 entry shows the sheriff returned EVANS to Zachariah. File closed on 3 Jun 1825.
