Receipt for Recorded Deed--Comparing the Original with the Record
This is the receipt that was attached to the original deed indicating it had been recorded.
The date is June 15th, 1863. We're comparing the actual deed with the recorded copy for the next issue of Casefile Clues. Very interesting. I'm not certain I'll look at a hand transcription of anything quite the same way again.
