Part 235s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1827 James Smith, Again

10 March 2010

Morning; an hour to Noon,

The next Record in of my Transcription Project is found on pages 703, 704, and 705 of the Grenada Registers of Records, 1817-1837 (v. R2-Z2) in Item 5 and downloaded from the microfilm FHL [1563329]. This Document relates to James Smith of Grenada the Carpenter. It is a Bill of Sale contracted with John Louis and Madelaine Allard.

All-in-all there is no hint as to the genealogy or ancestry of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. The James Smith of the Record could be my ggg-grandfather James but there are no other corresponding clues other than his name, the location, and the time.

Here are the pages:

I have one more Record in Item 5 but after first glance I cannot readily find the Smith surname. I’ve got to really check this one out. And if it isn’t immediately Smith-related I’m on to Item 6.
