Part 253s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1833 Richard Oliver Smith, and Again

31 March 2010

Afternoon,

I spent the day transcribing. My first Record is attributed to Richard Oliver Smith, dated 24 June 1833. Again there is no connection, hint, or clue of ggg-grandfather James Smith. I feel like a scribe.

This Record, a Bill of Sale, is from pages 266 and 267 of the volume of the Grenada Registers of Records, 1817-1837 (v. R2-Z2.). The Document image is from Item 8 the microfilm FHL [1563329].


And my transcription –

Entered 24 June 1833
