The following text is from the History of Fayette County, Pennsylvania:

In the list of original surveys in what was formerly Bullskin township appear the following named persons as the owners of the number of acres of land set opposite their names:

Peter Bucher....154 acres
John Martin.....319 acres
[note: many others listed in book]

Of the foregoing surveys those of George Batchelor and Peter Bucher, both in Salt Lick, were made in 1785. ... John Martin's survey, in the same township, made October, 1785, was called "Additional Stones."

Many of the land owners were actual settles at the time the surveys were made, and not a few of them had lived in the original township of Bullskin a score of years before the metes and bounds of their lands were officially determined. In 1788 the following were the owners of property:

George Bucher
John Martin Jr.
Peter Bucher Sr.
Peter Bucher Jr.
John Martin Sr.
[note: many others listed in book].
