Magruder Farms in Beltsville & Bladensburg

I am trying to sort out the different farms in Beltsville & Bladensburg owned by Edward Magruder (d.1842), his sons Oliver B. Magruder (d.1832), and Fielder M. Magruder (d.1898). I believe Edward's home was Bladensburg, but don't know how many other properties he may have owned. O.B. Magruder & F.M. Magruder owned two different farms in Beltsville. FMM purchased his at end of 1865, but I don't know how/when O.B. Magruder acquired his farm, nor what became of it when he died young in 1832. Findagrave says he is buried there, along with both his parents, but I have no other information that Edward & his wife Teresa Barron Magruder ever lived in Beltsville. I plan to visit the PGCHS library soon, but in the meantime any help would be appreciated. I would also like to locate the Beltsville farms.
