Part 209s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1812 Elizabeth “X” Smith

15 February 2010


My next transcription of a Smith-related record is from the microfilm FHL [1563328] and of Item 8, of the Grenada Register of Records, 1797-1817 (v. Gr-R2).

This is another document of originating of an Elizabeth Smith. I cannot say that this is the same Elizabeth Smith as of the one from the record in Part 208s.

You’ll note that I use an “X” in the Posting title. My rational is the indication “Her Mark” included as her signature in the record. This may mean that Elizabeth Smith, in this incidence is illiterate.

The images of the pages 459 and 460 continue.
