    Great stuff! Thanks for finding the links. I found this in Somerset County Md area. I'm hoping between information like what you're finding and possibly going backwards with land records, they'll meet somewhere that makes really cool sense!

    From the ebay listing I found I thought I'd screenshot the one or two images there for reference here just in case the listing goes away. One is an original letter using a very similar seal (for Montreal office in 1854) and the other is a closer image of the seal.. its spot on, just a different city.
