Part 358s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1878 George William Smith – Power of Attorney

12 September 2010


George William Smith, the way I calculate it, is my 1st cousin three times removed. He was the son of great-great-granduncle Thomas Smith. His name is made mentioned in gg-granduncle Thomas’ Last Will and Testament. (You can see my discussion in Parts 349s and 350s.)

This next Indenture from the Grenada Registers of Records and downloaded from Item 7 of the microfilm [1563330] is the assignment of a Power of Attorney to cousin George William by one, Sarah Bremner. The date of the Power of Attorney is 20 November 1878 and it was entered to the Registers 13 December 1878.

Sorry to say there is no evident clue as to the origins or ancestral genealogy of ggg-grandfather James Smith.

Here are the two Pages, 452 and 453, as downloaded from the microfilm.

And my transcription –

I have made a decision at this point in time that I will now shift years in my work in my Indenture Transcription Project. I do believe that there may be a very small chance that there could be a hint or a clue to the origins of ggg-grandfather James Smith in the documentation. But the Indentures at this point of time are approximately 35 years after his passing.

I will be working on and updating my Matrixes of the microfilms of Records that I have covered thus far. In turn I will then determine at what year to continue with Indentures that are entered to the Grenada Registers of Records.

Stay tuned.
