Part 242s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1829 Richard Oliver Smith

21 March 2010

Again, good morning,

Weather report… Rain, sun, rain, sun, rain, sun. Take your pick.

My next transcription is a Record entered to the Grenada Register of Records, a Bill of Sale between Robert and Abigail Gentle and Richard Oliver Smith. My genealogy and ancestry radar immediately piqued. There may be a connection of sorts to the Smith family lines through to this Robert and Abigail Gentle. But sorry to say, there is no hint of blatant linking to ggg-grandfather James Smith.

The Record entered 20 December 1830 to the Registers is dated 15 December 1829 and I’ve downloaded the images from the microfilm FHL [1563329], Item 7.

The pages are 451 and 452:
