Beall Town

I’m looking for information on the exact location of Beall Town, Maryland, which was established around 1720, prior to Bladensburg.  Printed reports have it variously from ½ to 1 mile upstream from Bladensburg on the NorthEastern Branch of the Potomac from Bladensburg. I have information on a number of lot purchases/transfers.  Any maps, recent articles, or suggestions of people with whom I might speak much appreciated. Suggestions to kal1@umbc.edu

Thanks.
