Ten Acre Parcel
In the next issue of Casefile Clues we look at a deed for this apparent 10 acre parcel of land in 1878. The lot is too small for the 1874 plat book shown here to even list the entire name, but the deed to this 10 acres provided several clues about the husband and wife who owned it in 1878. The deed is slightly unusual, probably constructed the way it was to avoid probate.
