General relationship of abutting properties


Lick Branch farm

Deed Book 13, Page 430 reflects Daniel H. Hall and W. Frank Cartee purchased the 75.5 acre portion of the present farm from Martin Snider and Laurence Snider
on April 14, 1909.

Deed Book 15, Page 145 reflects Amanda Parker received the 75.5 acre portion of the present farm from D. H. Hall & W. F. Cartee
on April 22, 1909.

 
Deed Book 17, Page 293 reflects D. H. Hall received the 35 acre portion of the present farm from Hall and Cartee on January 23, 1910.
The 25/35 acres are purportedly included in the 182 acres transferred by this deed. Note that a subsequent deed 
(Deed Book 37, Page 408) cites Deed book 17, Page 293 as being the predecessor deed in which 
Finley McGinnis received the relevant parcel from Dan Hall and W. F. Cartee. That’s not true. 
Finley McGinnis is not mentioned anywhere on this deed! Note also that this deed contains a reservation for 
a public road.  

Deed Book 37, Page 408 reflects Wallie Fults received the 75 acre portion of the present farm from Finley McGinnis on Feb. 28, 1919.
The 25/35 acres are included in the 75 acres transferred by this deed.
The Lick Branch “35 acre” parcel is included in the 75 acres transferred by this deed.

Deed Book 44, Page 76

W. T. Fults received the 35 acre portion of the present farm from Wallie Fults on December 26, 1921.
This deed is for a 75 acre parcel of land. The 75 acres was apparently subdivided to create the 25/35 acre parcel subsequently
deed to Amanda Pitts (ref. Deed Book 44, Page 161). Note that several calls on this deed have corresponding calls on the
contemporary 75.5 acre parcel deed (the shared boundary).

Deed Book 44, Page 161: "25/35" acres from W. T. Fults to Amanda Pitts on September 23, 1925.
Amanda Pitts and Amanda Parker are apparently the same person. The “25 acre” parcel” became a “35 acre” parcel
on subsequent deeds.


Deed Book 61, page 160
Ida McGinnis purchased the farm from Jennie McCormick, Rachel McGinnis, Synthia Jordan, Ves Parker, Tish Lore, Jack Parker, Malissa McCleese, Mary Parker, 
Lena Horsley, Susan Horsley and Mary Parker on August 25, 1939. The farm was described as being composed of two parcels, 
one of 75.5 acres and another of 35 acres. The metes and bounds description recored on this deed is notable because of a transcription error which was
introduced. A call of "N 32 E 11." was recorded as "N 11.5". The error was retained in all subsequent deeds.
 
Deed Book 78, page 281
Sarah McGinnis (widow of John H. McGinnis), Ida Mae McGinnis, Robert McGinnis Hobart, Eugene McGinnis, Betty Lou McGinnis, Thomas A. McGinnis and 
Alley Verne McGinnis received the farm from Ida (McGinnis) Oney and Sarah on November 17, 1948 (Deed Book 78, Page 281). The farm was described as 
being composed of two parcels, one of 75.5 acres and another of 35 acres. The metes and bounds description recorded on this deed is notable because of a 
transcription error which was introduced. A call of "N 45.5 E 10" was recorded as "N 45.5 E 101". The error was retained in all subsequent deeds.
 
Deed Book 115, page 144
Johnnie Canterbury received the farm from Robert McGinnis, Betty Lou McGinnis, Thomas A. McGinnis, Sarah (McGinnis) Hill, Ida (McGinnis) Oney 
Ida Mae (McGinnis) Blankenship, Allie Fern (McGinnis) Burnett on January 6, 1961 (Deed Book 115, Page 144). The farm was described as being composed
of two parcels, one of 75.5 acres and another of 35 acres. A call of “N 5.5 E 76.4” was recorded as “N 5.5 W 76.4”.

The farm was described as being composed of two parcels, one of 75.5 acres and another of 35 acres.

Deed Book 117, Page 556 (a)

Deed Book 227, Page 403 December 3, 2008: 107.5 acres (2 parcels) from Micky Griffith to John W. Grace Shirley was the widow of Paul C. Griffith. At the time of purchased, Micky Griffith retained two tracts totaling less than three acres. The two tracts were surveyed and their descriptions recorded with the above referenced deed. The farm was apparently first surveyed when it was subdivided from a larger tract of land on February 28, 1919 (Deed Book 37, Page 408). No later general survey of the farm exists. The main portion of the farm (originally 75.5 acres) was surveyed when it was subdivided from a larger tract of land on April 22, 1909 (Deed Book 15, Page 145). No later general survey of the farm has been done. The 35 acre parcel lies along the northeasterly boundary of the 75.5 acre parcel.
