EVANS stated "I am now 59 years old. I live close to the place where I was born, on the same tract called "North End" this place very near adjoins, about two miles north of this, close on the Thoroughfare. I took out my license in Virginia, at Drummondtown, till they changed the Customs House to Cherrystone. I was well acquainted with old Tommy, called "King" Nelson, and with old Job Parks, called Jobey. They were two of the oldest men I remember of ever knowing. I think they said Tommy Nelson was 105 years old, and Jobey Parks was a little older. They told me they helped to run this line between Maryland and Virginia, and carried the chain. They said they went to Ragged Point, on the Potomac River, and run a southeast course five miles below Point Lookout, down the Potomac, until they got north of Smith's Point; from that five mile point they struck an east course across the bay (Chesapeake) to Smith's Island, at Mister's Thoroughfare, to a gum tree, and from the gum tree to Beaver Hummock, and out a stone on the Hummock at that point, and from Beaver Hummock between two cedars--------to a point called the Barn, where also they placed a stone, which is said to be still there, and then an east course to old Jane's Island, where the said a peach orchard stood, leaving a part of Jane's Island on each side of the line,------------. I have seen the gum tree of which I speak, and recollect it well; that tree stood on the south side of Mister's Thoroughfare,------- Besides this tradition there were other traditions about where the line was. Some said it was old Herne Island Channel; some said it was up as high as Troy island in the thoroughfare, and some said it was up as high as Cage's Straits, I was once a pilot with Blount, the Coast Surveyor about 15 or 17 years ago. He settled a large cedar boundary about ten paces on the sand shore, at Ragged Point, on the south side of the Potomac, and I believe that post is still there.------- The gum tree spoken of was then on the land of Marmaduke Mister; it is now Severn Bradshaw's land. --------- Mr. Tommy Nelson told me about this line, when I lived on Jane's Island, about 36 years ago, counting by the age of my children. I then moved for Jane's Island to the upper house on Tangier Island, about 28 years ago, and Jobey Parks and I became acquainted after I moved to Tangier, and was the father of Stephen Parks, now living. Both Nelson and Parks stated that when the line was run there were a number of officers and other persons engaged in the work, and they had barges &c.---------- I have seen the stone at Beaver Hummock between two cedar stumps, when it was in one piece; it is now in two. I cannot say how big it was, but according to my calculation and that of others it weighed about a ton. When I saw it on the bank, before it went down the bank, it looked almost white, showing plainly from afar. There came a very hard freeze about 1832. I know by the death of William Tyler, and there came a heavy storm which drove the ice under the stone and drove it out, --------- I have heard old Mr. Johnny Parks say, the same who lived where John Tyler now lives, that the line went between his great-house and kitchen, and Butler Tyler claimed that it went between his two houses at Drum Point, between dwelling and kitchen. Marmaduke Mister said it was not so, for it went to the gum, for he saw Nelson and Parks when they helped to carry the chain." "I know where Queen's Ridge is on Tangier Island; I know of no other place by that name, Piney Island is northeast of Queen's Ridge. I know Rich Hummock, and it lies a little north of Piney Island. I know old Herne Island and it is a little south of east from the mouth of Shanks' Creek on Smith's Island." (Walcyzk, Gail M., Deposition, pp 11-12).
