The deed book abstracts in this volume were gleaned from documents that were recorded between 1826 and 1829. In addition to the names, dates and land descriptions one would expect to find in such records, these deed abstracts also reveal names of children and neighbors, ties to other areas, clues to family wealth (or lack of), names of wives, mothers, slaves, previous spouses, kinship, etc. These pages contain deeds of trust for protection of wives and small children from a husband's financial troubles; prenuptial agreements; depositions; powers of attorney connecting different places; sheriff sales to partition estates or settle lawsuits, which often include the names of slaves. Chains of title reach back to the eighteenth century original grantees and list the names of subsequent owners. The names of witnesses, adjoining landowners, heirs, churches, branches, creeks, bridges, and ferries are included. The deeds are presented in original page number order with a full name index.
