2. At home all day. In the afternoon Mr. Rozer Mr. Carroll—Mr. Sydebotham & Mr. Magowan came here.

Several Carroll families were living in Maryland at this time.

William Sydebotham, of Maryland, supplied goods to Maryland troops during the Revolution. After the war he was a claimant against the property of the Loyalist Rev. Jonathan Boucher.
