Jessup history:

"Settled in 1849, Jessup has seen several name changes. First called Saymour, later Mount Vernon, and then Winton, after William Winton who established a coal breaker there in the mid-1870's. The current name was taken from the prominent Jessup family of Montrose. Today you can still find Mount Vernon Road and Winton Street in Jessup and Archbald"
