Claborn acquired 140 acres on the east side of New Hope Creek on 27 June 1783. The land was adjoining Matthew Davis, who also witnessed the purchase.
Claborn's wife Mary must have died about 1819, as that is when the remainder of the Mathews estate was sold.
There is more work to do on this branch of the family.
