Brise Blaer, Frederick Co. MD to Bedford Co. PA - Was Scotch-Irish.

Brice Blair settled in an area known as "Bean's Cove" in Bedford County very early. He wrote his will in 1785, but it was not recorded in Bedford at that time. It was not recorded until the mid 1960's, after a descendant located it in a box of unrecorded wills in the basement of the courthouse.

Brice is said to be one of five brothers who came to Virginia from Ireland. The other four were: James, Archibald, John and Thomas.
