orning,

No cat this morning, and I spent a sleepless night last night just transcribing.

First on my list of Records, a Bill of Sale between Cecille Smith and William Cockburn attorney to Richard Oliver Smith. The Bill of Sale is dated 1 December 1828 and was entered to the Grenada Register of Records 20 December 1830. There is no contained information that would connect either Smith to ggg-grandfather James Smith.

And the pages 450 and 451 from Item 7 of the microfilm FHL [1563329]:
