Part 238s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1830 Richard Oliver Smith

17 March 2010

Morning,

The pollen count is increasing. Bless you. And I carry a box of Kleenex with Aloe & Vitamin E & Lotion. Bless you. And I’m beginning to look like I’m auditioning for the part of Rudolf. Bless you. And I wipe the dogs and my hair down, after a walk with a damp paper towel. Bless you.

I’ve been pre-occupied with the creation of our new Blogsite, Quilts SB. Also we’ve been working on the re-creation of this Blogsite, soon to appear named – A Genealogy Hunt.

The next transcription was somewhat a strain on my blood-shot eyes. You’ll note there are many more blanks this time in the body of the document. (Another set of eyes certainly would be helpful.)

The Record appears to a Power of Attorney dated 18 February 1830 of Richard Oliver Smith. It is entered to the Grenada Registers of Records on the 25th of April of that same year. The name Smith is written 19 times in the body of the Document, and I could not find any valid cross-reference to ggg-grandfather James Smith.

Here are the pages 205 through and including 208 from Item 7 the microfilm FHL [1563329]:
