George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 25 November 1774]

25. Sale continued at the same place where I again lodged.

In the margin of his Virginia almanac for this month, GW, apparently as a reminder, noted for 21 Nov. “Mercer’s sale at Wests” and for 24 Nov. “do. at Snicker’s,” but the latter sale seems to have been held at Dawson’s. Edward Snickers had a home where the road from Snickers’s ferry to Winchester crossed Buck Marsh Run, about three miles due south of Warner Washington’s home, Fairfield (CHAPPELEAR [1] description begins Curtis Chappelear. “Early Grants of the Site of Berryville and Its Northern Vicinity.” Proceedings of the Clarke County Historical Association 8 (1948): 17–38. description ends , 37).
