Notes for William P. Benson:
He used the name Pagno from his step-father as a middle name. Not hisbirth name. Not sure who is the mother of Julia Ann and Elizabeth. Some sources listed him as died before 1822 because he wasn't named in Zachariah Dowden's will. Further research shows him and Sarah in the 1850 Montgomery County census still living, ages 72 and 69.

MARYLAND LAND RECORDS-MONTGOMERY COUNTY 1777-1863

NOTE: This list uses the spelling "Veirs." As most experienced Viers researchers know, most instruments and deeds spelled the name with many variations. The person who submitted this list to be microfilmed did a commendable job of making the record, however, this person must subscribe to that theory of those who live in Maryland who hold that the name should be spelled Veirs (only). The recorder listing this information should have used the spelling as it appeared in the instrument. The uniform use of the name Veirs, here, only tends to lessen the reliability of the information provided. Those who wish to use this material should look at the actual land instrument noted and obtain a copy to assure they are getting a certifiable document with the spelling the original document uses.
