Doyle Tracts

From Aspen Hill, Maryland, USA
Jump to: navigation, search

The Doyle Tracts were a group of tracts of land in and around central Aspen Hill, Maryland. Many of them were bought by Elias Gelman and became part of the Wheaton Woods subdivision. The deeds include a primary transfer of several tracts, at Montgomery County Land Records liber CKW 1104 folio 91 etc., of September 18, 1947, transferring from Gertrude Allison Doyle ("Gertrude A Doyle") to Betty Jane Gawler.

Note the interesting Deed of Trust between Betty Jane Gawler and Willard G McGraw and Edward H Brent, Trustees, at Liber 1104, folio 94, of September 18, 1947. Evidently Ms Gawler owed $120,000 for the land and turned it over to the trustees to sell it. The deed examiner notes "mailed to J Calvert Bowie ... 3-24-48". An additional note in the margin says "vida release Liber 1427, folio 130".

See also Liber 2568, folio 398, of March 4, 1959, transferring from Melvin Gelman individually and as trustee for the estate of Elias Gelman and wife Estelle, to Donley Construction Company, Inc.
