Part 217s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1817 James Smith – A Quick Follow-up

21 February 2010


Subsequent to receiving power of attorney from William McIntosh the 16th of August, 1816, James Smith then by Letter of Substitute nominates Laurence Vonweiller his power of attorney on the 21st of May, 1817. And then, the two Documents are entered to the Grenada Register of Records, respectively on the 5th and 6th of August 1817. (See Part 216s.)

All-things-being-equal the James Smith on both Records has to be the same person. Both are recorded of Saint George, Grenada. Both are registered as Mill Wrights, and both are assigned as Attorney to William McIntosh.

Here is the short Letter of Substitution from bottom half of page 135 of the Grenada Register of Records, 1817-1837 (v. G2-R2) and found on the microfilm FHL [1563329].
