- Born: Abt 1741, Somerset Co., MD
- Marriage (1): Sarah Roach
- Died: 1789, Worcester Co., MD 2
George Disharoon (c1741-1789) was the brother of Francis Disharoon (c1743-1788) and both were sons of John Disharoon (c1699-1761) and his wife Mary Langkake (the surname was later shortened to Lank) and grandsons of John Disharoon Sr. (1677-c1754). John Disharoon Sr., this writer's 8th great grandfather, had patented the tract "Come By Chance" for 85 acres in 1713 and it borders the tract his grandson George had surveyed for him in 1772. "Come By Chance" was outside the border of the Wicomico Manor and is located in the modern day roughly from where St. Lukes and Division meet, out St. Lukes to where it hits Cedar Lane, then turns south to Meadow Bridge, then west to Brown Street Extended and then diagonals back to the intersection of St. Lukes and Division.
George's brother, Francis, who is this writer's 6th great grandfather, owned parts of tracts "Havana" and "Watsons Discovery". These are located on the southern edge of Fruitland along and east of business US Route 13. He had purchased 40a of the 100a in the tract "Watsons Discovery" from his brother George on Dec 12 1767. "Havana" was a very large tract of almost 880a and he purchased 14.5a of it from Christopher/Alce Glass on Oct 10 1768 and another 85.5a from them on Aug 5 1772. The portion of these two tracts he purchased were just outside the bounds of the old Wicomico Manor.
George Disharoon was already living in a house that had descended to him from his father (who left it to George's brother Stephen but Stephen died young and the house reverted to George) it was on the Come By Chance tract. We get a clue to the location of that house when the "Come By Chance," "Disharoons Adventure" and other tracts were combined in 1801 by Joshua Morris to form "Morrises Conclusion." The first boundary of that land is located out St. Lukes Road a little past Brown Street where the new development now stands and that bound is described in 1801 as "the first bound of tract Come By Chance, a small distance east of the dwelling house where George Disharoon formerly lived." This is likely the old John Disharoon plantation dwelling house that George inherited and lived through his life and likely was located on the east side of Meadow Bridge Road just out from town past Brown Street in Fruitland.
George married Sarah Roach.
