This is the continuation of my Transcription Project in the search for the genealogy and origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. And this is the last Smith-related Document in Item 3 of the Family History Library microfilm FHL .
The inserted image is of the file stacks of microfilms at the Family History Library.
This Document is comprised of Pages 474 through and including 477. There have been, from my discovery, 108 Smith-pages in the Grenada Registers of Records. These are manifestly labeled in the Index assuming that a Smith is one of the “To/From” Parties. This does not mean that there could be more mentions and inclusions of the name Smith, it just means that these are the Pages that are listed in the Index.
And my transcription. This contract is between Benjamin D’Harriette Smith and James Park. Once again, I do no read any clue to a connection to ggg-grandfather James.
