Good Day,

And now the next section of the Indenture entered to the Grenada Registers of Records on 2 April 1801.

I am sifting through this first part(s) of the Document to see if any of the Smith may or may not be connected to in any way to ggg-grandfather James Smith. As I mentioned in Part 610s there are 43 occurrences of the surname Smith in these five pages of the Document.
