I recently came across two things that might interest you. One is a book I found on Google Books and the other is a reprint of a newspaper article from the 1880`s:
This book has the reports of cases brought before the county court, high court and grand juries of Pennsylvania. The link takes you to the case of Pennsylvania vs. Abrilla Blackmore, widow of Samuel Blackmore:
The second is an article "From the Madison Courier, February 2, 1883", quoting an article in the "Louisville Courier-Journal" which suggests that Samuel Blackmore owned the lands that part of the US capital was built on. There is a document that named Abrilla Blackmore and Jane Blackmore as heirs and they leased out the land for 99 years. In the late 1880's their decendants then had a claim on the lands. I have not found anything on the outcome of the claim.
