“John Hanson arrived in Frederick County in 1769. While representing Charles County in the Assembly he had received the appointment of Deputy Surveyor of Frederick County which, at that time, included all of western Maryland. The Deputy Surveyor surveyed all lands before a patent was issued--an active post for Hanson in the wilderness of western Maryland where settlement was just beginning to take place.
In 1772 Hanson purchased lot #28 in Frederick Town. His Frederick house remained his home while he served in the Continental Congress during the American Revolution and while he presided over the Congress of the Articles of Confederation afterwards.
