April y(e) 28th 1781
Received of (?)" Abraham Umstattd Eight bushels of wheat for the use of the State of Maryland
Recd by Daniel Candler
The archivist at Maryland State Archives says that no county is cited on the original and that MdHR is only their own internal designation, a finding aid meaning Maryland Hall of Records, which has nothing to do with the county involved.
Considering that (an) Abraham sold wheat to Montgomery County, MD a year earlier, it is possible that this sale also took place in Montgomery County and involved the same Abraham. Note the difference in the UM spelling tho - Umstattd in this one, Umstad in 1780. That may or may not matter.
