Part 264s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1827 Archibald and James Smith

18 April 2010

Early Morning,

Supper was certainly a wee bit different; a memorable Thai salad- Laab and a main dish of Broad Beans and Shrimp. The actual recipe instead of broad beans called for stinky beans. Well I’m adventurous when it comes to cooking and eating, but once I read online that Stinky Beans “as the food to order when on a bad date” I opted to use the broad beans as a substitute.

Tonight’s Indenture in my Transcription Project, of my search for the origin of the genealogy and ancestry of ggg-grandfather James Smith is a Record, dated 15 June 1827 and entered to the Grenada Registers of Records 10 April 1828. This Record is the first part of a number of entries that cover a number of pages. I figured it would be easier to transcribe and interpret in short parts. And so the next few Transcriptions and Parts, I believe, will all appear to refer to a particular affair.

Further I do not believe that these Records are particular to ggg-grandfather James Smith. They appear to be applicable to one James and one Archibald Smith who, I think are of the “Jordan Hill Smiths”. See Part 261s for further cross-references to the associated Smiths.

Here is the first Record downloaded from Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563380] pages 424, 425, and 426.

Thank you for the comments, questions, and words of advice. For those who are asking, I have created a new Blogsite, Quilts SB, to post our work and progress on our quilts. This was done to reduce the at-times organizational confusion of maintaining our quilt information at the same location of my genealogy work.

Enjoy,

Jim.
