Part 326s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1833 James and Archibald Smith, Again

31 July 2010


Per the Records in my Transcription Project there appears to be an abundance of contractual transactions happening between James and Archibald Smith and Robert McCunn and Henry Wharton Waddilove.

In the search for any family ties, ancestry or genealogy of my ggg-grandfather James Smith, at this point I seem to be pulling a number of blanks.

The next Indenture of the Grenada Registers of Records, as microfilmed on FHL [1563380] in Item 6 was entered 10 January 1833, examined and possibly transacted 4 January 1833. It also appears to be a preceding Indenture to the next Document that I am currently transcribing.

Here are the images of the pages 325, 326, and 327.

And my Transcription –
