Part 302s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1830 James & Archibald Smith Cont’d

25 June 2010

Afternoon,

It has been a quiet afternoon and the humidity was down a wee bit this morning for about 30 minutes. It’s back. And month one of the Hurricane Season, June, is almost over. I think it is about time I started to account for and check that I have everything in place for the next five months.

I’m still working on my Indenture Research Project. I’m still looking for some connection to the genealogy and ancestry of my ggg-grandfather James Smith on or outside the Island of Grenada.

This next Record is or appears to be a continuation of the paperwork of the Document I worked with in Part 301s. The parties, once again, involved are James and Archibald Smith and Henry Wharton Waddilove. There does not seem to be any reference at all to ggg-grandfather James even though the name Smith is mentioned 55 times.

This Record, from the Grenada Registers of Records is inclusive of Pages 622 through 628. The images are downloaded from the microfilm FHL [1563380]. This is the last Smith-related Record of Item 4.

Here are the images:


And my transcription –
