Part 255s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1834 James Smith

01 April 2010

Morning,
The James Smith included in today’s Record transcription may or may not be ggg-grandfather James. I cannot tell from any of the content of this Document.

It definitely is a continuation of the business matters of James Smith and John Sly and the Thomases et al. (See the previous Posting at Part 243s. Therefore I cannot incite any discussion as to the genealogy or ancestry of ggg-grandfather James Smith from the Record’s subject matter.

The pages 468 through and including 471 were discovered in the Grenada Registers of Records, 1817-1837 (v. R2-Z2.) and extracted from Item 8 of the microfilm FHL [1563329].

Here are the images of the pages.


My transcription… Please note that I try to get down every word and even cross-out word that I can make out from the Record.
