I am looking for a tract of land described simply as "thirty acres more or less on Green Briar Creek on the road that leads to Shamokin." My progenitor, Peter Glick (variously spelled Gluck, Kluck, or Gleck), took out a warrant to purchase this land on May 28, 1752, but he never took possession of it, because he was murdered by Indians. I would like to find this land. Can anyone identify Green Briar Creek for me? Peter resided in Windsor Township south of Shamokin, and Shamokin was on the extreme frontier of then Berks County, so I suspect the land lies to the south of Shamokin. I do not find any maps that show a stream by that name in that area, but the name may have since changed. If you have this information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
