Recorded January 13th 1832* at 2 o’clock p.m
W.V.B Heermance, Clerk

Comment: The name "Jordan" appears at times to have been written "Jordon".

* There is a section at the bottom of the page in the deed book that did not copy well and is nearly impossible to read. I will attempt to obtain another copy and complete the transcription here. There is also a word I do not know "enfoeff" – could it be "enforce"? If anyone can give me the correct spelling, I’ll appreciate it.
