Page 233s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1827 Richard Oliver Smith

08 March 2010

gain good evening,

This is another Richard Oliver Smith Record; pages 546 to and including 548 of the Grenada Registers of Records 1817-1837 (v. R2-Z2) and downloaded from the microfilm FHL [1563329].

This Record appears to be a duplicate of the one in Part 232s. It’s not… just damn close, and any connection to ggg-grandfather James Smith is most definitely not apparent to me.

Here are the three pages: 546, 547, and 548:
