While researching Matthias Hoffman (died 1838?) of Washington County, Maryland, I came across the following entries regarding land purchases of a man named John Hoover in Taneytown. Hoover seemed to buy up everything he could. The names of the tracts he purchased were interesting. They included parts of "Sarah's Delight, Harry's Grove (or grave), Nicholas' Mistake, Shockey's Mistake, Help to Hall's Sale, Darling's Dale, Bald Hill, Rocky Hill, Cost More Than It's Worth, and Worth Little." His home place was called "Necessity."   For those interested, I found this in Matthias & Mary (Hoover) Hoffman of "Necessity" and Their Descendants, compiled by Jacob A. Hoffman.
