Larry G. Shuck. 1996, 8.5 X 11, Softbound. If you're seeking information on Deeds (1799-1817), Wills (1799-1829), or Sim's Land Grant Index (1780-1862) for this county, this is the place to look. Many think deeds are only a transfer of land from a grantor to grantee, but in genealogy it is so much more. They note the presence of possible census readings (with neighbors included). They normally name the grantor's wife; many times they include families (settlements), siblings and their spouses, parents, neighbors, a new place of residence when they move and then sell, and much more. Probate records do some of the same. Index, 187 pages. [029-CP]
