The last entry of this document is a deed for a cow from Thomas Savage to
William Jordan. I had this photocopied in 1989. The original has many ink
spots, stains, and is very hard to read. I had it scanned into a JPEG format
and then cleanned it up pixel by pixel using a photographic software
package. I have read this entry many times and have, with the help of many
people, been able to decipher some of it. If you can unscramble any
additional words or phrases please
email your suggestions. WES,JR
