Slocomb of Worcester County, Maryland (Acc Co Deeds 56, p. 316). The deed states this land was near New Church, bound on the north by the public road to Horntown, on the east by lands belonging to John O. Selby, in the right of his wife Emma, and on the south and southeast by Snead heirs. Sally Slocomb heired this land from her father, Solomon Marshall. These boundaries locate the land as the present H. Robert Tull home farm. Five years later, on 27 Dec 1888, James E. Justice sold these 100 acres to William J. Ardis for $900 (Acc Co Deeds 60, p. 328). (Mr. Charlie Ardis of Cedar Hall Road, Pocomoke City, Maryland, son of William J.

Townsend and wife Evaline for $4250 (Acc Co Deeds 84, p. 474). The land was located near Horntown, bordered on the north by lands of James Rowley (Corbin Hall property), on the east by Chincoteague Bay, south by a lot of John Marriner and the public road leading from said Bay to Horntown. There is no evidence that James E. Justice lived on this property, rather, that he was buying it for his youngest son, William Roy Justice. On 11 Jan 1910, James E. Justice bought, from James O. Owen and the heirs of George S. Miles, a one acre lot in Wattsville, containing a store house for $2250 (Acc Co Deeds 95, p. 104). This was the store in which his son, Quincey E.

Revell, joined with a commissioner in a sale of the whole as 270 acres to Francis Ondley. A new survey called it 285 acres and placed the Ondley home near the east end, on the creek, about where William B. Wessells recently lived, and it probably was the previous site of the Revell home as well as of that of the Bonwell family, going back to the beginning of their tenure. Soon after his purchase, Francis Only sold 130 acres to Henry Custis; it was back from the creek and extended along the line of tract A72.
