    EARLY SETTLEMENTS [p. 66]
    "In April, 1802, Fran cis Nesbit came, with his family, and settled on Hickory creek, near w here the old mill stands, south of Mount Jackson. The family consisted of his wife, five sons, and two daughters. The sons were John, Franci s, William, James and Allen; and the daughters, Elizabeth and Anna. Th ey came from Cumberland county, Pa., although the Nesbits were origina lly from Scotland. William Espy, who married Elizabeth Nesbit, had set tled the previous year, 1801. His son, Thomas Espy, afterward went to North Carolina, and died there. A daughter of his afterward married Go vernor Vance, of that State. Francis Nesbit gave twenty-five dollars t oward the establishment of the old college at Darlington, Beaver count y.
    William Espy had made arrangements to build a mill, and Mr. Nesbit, who had also been out in 1801, brought out the mill-gearing with him in 1802, and he and Espy built the mill. Espy was a surveyor by profes sion. They located on Donation tract, number 1786 supposed to contain four hundred acres, but a survey showed that it contained over five hu ndred.
    Mr. Nesbit sold his interest in the mill to Espy, and took all but one hundred acres of the land. Mr. Nesbit died in September, 1802, and was the first person ever buried in the cemetery at Westfield Pre sbyterian Church."
