Excellent research, Mike. I have an early reference to John Disharoon from Ruth Dryden's book which states that "Cox's Fork" in Wicomico was patented in 1681 for Thomas Cox for 300 acres and the rent rolls 1666-1723 show John Holder possessed 150 acres and John Disharoon 150 acres. John Holder died 1716/17 and willed to sons John and Joseph Holder. Son John Holder appears to have moved to Dorchester Co. when he sold 75 acres
in 1729 to Ebenezer Handy who in 1736 sold 75 acres to John Trehearn, along with 65 acres of "Holder's Chance." I'm trying to find out more about the Holders - have you come across any other references to Holder in your Disharoon research? Thanks!
